TomTom’s been pimping out its GPS software to mobiles for some time now, and 3 has just announced one of the best bundles yet by pairing it with Nokia’s E61.Regular Stuffers will know that we’re rather fond of the Blackberry-killing smartphone – it’s sitting comfortably at number five in our Top 10 smartphones – and 3 is now offering the handset preloaded with TomTom’s Navigator 6 software for a delightfully reasonable £100.No hasslesThe network’s claim that the deal is exclusive is a tad strange considering the E61 is one of the listed compatible phones for the software, but signing up for the contract will save you from fiddling about with installation. TomTom’s package gives you the usual cocktail of UK and European maps, voice guidance and, for the first three months, free traffic alerts. After that, you can either cough up £25 for a one-year subscription or just pray for favours from the God of the M25.
