Nokia smartphones use both time based and item storage based limits for location data.
The last known position is replaced every time a new position is calculated. Wi-Fi or GPS based positions are stored for a maximum of 7 days and for network based positioning, up to 2500 of the most recent locations may be stored, after which location information will be deleted or replaced when Wi-Fi or network positioning is next used. The length of time that the data is stored will therefore vary depending on how frequently the positioning services are used in different locations.
For data collected when using Drive navigation on Maps, information stored on the smartphone is collected from a maximum of 40 hours of driving. All information stored in the smartphone is encrypted and is deleted from the smartphone once it has been transmitted to Nokia.
