Vodafone and Nokia have issued a recall for Nokia 6110 Navigator handsets sold through Vodafone due to problems with the mapping software. According to reports, when customers try to launch a map of the U.K. and Ireland, the navigation software freezes the handset. The issue only occurs on black, customized versions of the handset distributed by Vodafone. Estimates of the affected handsets are about 3,000.
Nokia has said it is aware of the issue with a “small number of handsets” and that it is working with Vodafone to “rectify the situation.” The handset maker has set up a service for affected customers to fix any issues with the handsets.
Vodafone has said that it has located the faulty batch of handsets and removed them from distribution centers, and is still working to remove any from stores.
