Mapping for 70 countries, with driving directions, traffic info and walking navigation.
Ovi Maps Review
by on March 17, 2010
Nokia’s own, fully stocked, map app now comes with free mapping for wherever you want – just download the maps you need using the Nokia PC Suite software and transfer them to your handset.
The mobile app is a slick experience and is quick to locate your current position, even if navigating the maps themselves was a little fiddly on our touchscreen X6.
Ovi Maps has mapping available for over 70 countries worldwide – a recent addition made in the face of increased competition from those Googlers.
As well as driving directions with traffic info and advance route planning, there’s also walking navigation as well as free map updates when they’re available. The app also gives you access to events guides and info from Lonely Planet and Michelin.
Our Lonely Planet guide popped straight up with our current city, offering places to eat and stay. Likewise the Michelin guide was slick and gave us the hotels closest to our location (though as the crow flies unfortunately, not the easiest to get to).
You can also share your current location with your Facebook friends through the app. Ovi Maps is awash with features – if you don’t have it on your Nokia, you’re missing out.
