Useful phone

I would like to buy some new Nokia phone. Now I have N70. I prefer some with better resolution and mainly with long holding time. When I use bluetooth GPS receiver the battery hold cca 7-8 hours (maximum), but it is when i use SmartcomGPS. I know, that racechrono is much exacting. So can you give mi advice please which phone will be able function at least 3-4 hours with RaceChrono? I don´t use it on car but on locomotive (railway) so staying power only 1 hour is not so useful for my purpose. Thank you for help!

    Hi, keep the phone not in live timer mode (where the lights are on), but lock the keys instead from "Options > Lock keys". This way the phone will use much less battery. Also you can buy 12V recharger (if the locomotive has 12V outlet).

    I don't know which Nokia phone has biggest battery, but E61, E61i used to have 1500 mAh. Also 5800, E71, E52 and E55 bigger batteries than usual.

    When keys are locked, I can run even my N95 with puny 950mAh battery several hours with RaceChrono.
  • I recently run out of power in N95 with 950 battery within an hour. Good to know I can save power with no live data on.

    Hmmm... I think integration with 12V power supply is good. Will try that.

    Also new battery might help, if you run out with only one hour session. Nokia is nice enough to allow us replace it cheaply :)
