If only Mary and Joseph had had MyMobileSatNav, then Little Baby J could have been made his debut from the comfort of a cosy inn room instead of a stinking stable.

If the earthly parents of the son of God had a Bluetooth-enabled phone or PDA, and shelled out a measly £40, they would have been issued with a slimline GPS receiver and a downloadable sat-nav app that would have got them to Bethlehem faster than you could say “Hallelujah”.

Using GPRS, MyMobileSatNav delivers data to your handset from their centralised European map database, using postcode search, real-time traffic information, speed camera alerts and POI info.

It’s obviously best if you have an all-you-can eat data transfer tariff, but there’s also an economy mode, or an option simply to load a single route before switching off the live connection (handy for those prohibitively expensive foreign data charges).

You can switch between car and pedestrian settings, and therefore choose voice instructions or simple map viewing. Sadly, there’s no donkey mode.
