GPS-Tracking if your N95 gets stolen???

I believe that it is technically possible to create a software for S60 phones that does that. Especially after reading all of this here:

Tracking the location via GSM-cell-ID is already possible but it is not that accurate. (Localisation in cities up to 50m close - in rural areas something between 100m and 30.000m.)
Keep in mind - the GPS function in your N95 receives satellite-signals only, it can not send anything to satellites. However, it should be possible to compile a software which starts when the SIM card is being changed. It should then try to get a sat-fix, save the (thief's) current location and send the geo-tags via sms to another phone number or to an email-address. The new and soon to be released firmware (12.0.013) seems to improve the sat-fix and it should be possible to get a sat-fix with the slider closed. With A-GPS enabled you will even get the location indoors if you are close to a window. Thoughts?

You don't want to get your precious N95 stolen, soo

do something beforehand just in case the worst case scenario becomes reality.

There is a lot of anti-theft software for mobiles available. Track the movements of your mobile, using the gsm cell-id localization with this free software: http://www.symbian-toys.com/ or gain informations about the thief, monitoring his activities like sent and received sms, incoming and outgoing calls, phonebooks contacts added.

"Theft" is also a great software solution: http://www.symbianbrains.co.uk/
If stolen a siren goes off. If you call your mobile you will be notified of the new number if the thief changes your SIM. It does a lot more- some things are truly stunning ->€14.99


self-made car holder for the N95

this car holder for the n95 was made by using the plastic frame it came with. A simple rubberband is the fixing device here. I glued a thin magnet to the plastic and put the other magnetic counterpart onto a button that doesn't have a function. (I bought the magnetic holder for my old phone - €3.99) I put holes into the plastic for the most used plugs. As you can see the phone doesn't shake or even vibrate. Only my cam movement was a bit shaky. Okay I am cheap.. but this is a working solution until a decent car holder comes out that doesn't cost 50 plus Euros!

here you can see more of how it was done:

self-made tripod for the Nokia n95

okay, I don't want to have a design award for this, but it's working great ! Materials were $3 only ! I was in need of a tripod but couldn't find a fitting one for the N95 in stores. I will change the design of the tripod soon! So far it's a stable, cheap and lightweight solution for me.
Yeah I know - the screw nut looks pretty rusty -lol but it's just brownish.
