Updated Ovi Maps for mobile devices now available for download
The latest version of Nokia’s mobile mapping and navigation software, Ovi Maps, is now available for download. The new version of Ovi Maps for mobile devices opens up a new world of context-aware and location based services for consumers and includes a range of new features such as high-resolution aerial images, 3D landmarks for over 200 cities, terrain maps and a new route overview in Drive – the turn-by-turn car navigation guide.

Other new options for Ovi Maps include a new point-of-view information service providing live travel, event updates, and a weather service giving 24-hour and 5-day forecasts.

Pedestrian navigation has also been improved. A straight-line guidance takes the person on foot the quickest route between two points. Beeps and vibrations in the walking navigation mode alert the pedestrian when they need to take a turn along their route.

Ovi Maps takes the maps experience to a completely new dimension by extending the service from the mobile device to the PC or Mac. As well as allowing consumers to explore relevant locations around the world, and collect, create and pre-plan routes, Ovi Maps on web, www.maps.ovi.com, enables them to share their location, personal content and experiences with friends.

Nokia business manager, software and services, Bruce Webb said: “Location based services play a pivotal role in the evolution of the Internet by making it relevant and personal.”

“With Ovi Maps, we’ve integrated the mobile experience with the traditional desktop experience which allows people to pre-plan their journey at home on their PC or Mac and synchronise with their mobile device,” he continued.

The latest version of the Ovi Maps application for devices will be available on the Nokia 6720 and N86 in Q3 and for download for selected Nokia devices.
