If the mapping application on your Nokia can show roads and search for gas stations, restaurants, etc. while outside of cell coverage range it must come with a substantial base map package. That is a good deal better than most mapping applications such as Google Maps. What is the mapping application you use on your Nokia?

Nokia comes shipped with their own navigation software. This software is pretty good, too.

Then you can download maps for the whole world (with more or less detailed coverage) for free. It is about 7.5 GB I believe for the world. That is very special and unique amongst smartphones.

Nokia owns Navteq, which means their maps are amongst the best.

So no need for data coverage to navigate with a Nokia phone. That is the reason I still use my old Symbian phone.
I think there might be a more scenic route somewhere...
