Its wide (4.3 inch) color screen makes it easy to search through your contacts and make and receive calls, and the handsfree speaker system with Digital Signal Processing (DSP) provides excellent audio quality. Navigating couldn't be easier - equipped with high-sensitivity GPS and Nokia Maps navigation software, the Nokia 500 Car navigation gives clear spoken and visual directions (turn-by-turn, including street and city names). It comes with pre-installed regional maps, and detailed travel information, including points of interest such as hotels, petrol stations and tourist sites. The integration between the device's navigation and communication features also lets you receive contact details for the points of interest you pass on your journey so you can call directly, or get directions to addresses already stored in your contacts.
