The latest firmware for the Nokia N95 offers many new features and much better memory management, and is free to download - but it also takes away the tracking feature from Nokia Maps, which the company now claims was a limited-time promotional offer.

The ability to track your current position is a fairly basic function of GPS software, a "you are here" indicator which updates as you move; such a feature used to be present on the free Nokia Maps application. But after upgrading the firmware that feature has vanished, and those contacting Nokia to complain are being told that they'll have to upgrade to the premium version of the application to re-enable the feature.

Since Nokia started allowing customers to upgrade handset firmware themselves the facility has generally been welcomed, fixing numerous bugs and rewarding early adopters with greater stability and new features. However, the process also gives Nokia the opportunity to remove features which were previously free.
