Long Way Down Duo Uses Nokia 6110

Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman with a Nokia 6110
Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman, as you probably known, are riding their BMW motorcycles through Africa, on the way to South Africa. Instead of using compass, paper maps and a sextant, or a TomTom Rider or Garmin Zumo GPS, they have "opted" for the latest technology just about to hit the market.

The duo is using a Nokia 6110 all-singing all-dancing mobile telephone with integrated GPS.

Interesting.... not knowing much about the Nokia, I'd venture to say that there are no real maps of Africa (nor should there be many GSM signals).

So, I guess they'll be using the Phone/GPS to give a position (in case the sextant broke down Dunno Smiley).
