Anybody have experience of using a Nokia 5230 with linux? Does it show up
as a filesystem when plugged?
I have come across http://series60-remote.sourceforge.net/index.php which
apparently can talk to the phone over bluetooth (but not wired). But I
suspect it cannot download maps etc.
I've also dowloaded nokia's Ovi Suite and installed it under wine. It
runs, produces a system tray icon which does not respond to mouse clicks.
I'm not that interested in interacting with the phone from the PC apart
from downloading maps for the GPS function ('cos I'm cheapskate and don't
want to pay for a data plan).
It's an end of line and is coming in way cheaper than any other smart/gps
phone. Otherwise I wouldn't bother with all that gps stuff...
