"With PathAway, you can create your own maps, even aerial photos, and import them. I have downloaded topos, marine charts, aerials, street maps and sectionals. The cool thing is that you can layer maps and switch between them. I have used this for flight, boating and hiking." Tom P.

"I have used Pathaway for many years along many country paths in Germany and Italy. I can highly recommend the new portable phone Pathaway for Symbian! I use it on a Nokia 6710 Navigator. With PathAway you can use your own maps when navigating off-road. By its clever programming, all necessary functions could be implemented on the tiny phone-keyboard. External GPS devices work fine and help spare battery power of the Nokia. The installation with Nokia Suite runs flawless." Gerhard S.
