For such phones you will need to buy a compatible GPS module. The GPS module will communicate with your phone via Bluetooth. Nokia NSeries, Nokia ESeries, and some Nokia XpressMusic smartphones support Nokia maps and navigation.

Nokia phones like Nokia X6 and Nokia N97 mini come with free lifetime voice-guided turn-by-turn drive and walk navigation and all Nokia phones with built-in GPS will also offer free navigation.
