Ovi Maps with Free Navigation for Nokia E71!

Nokia has announced today that Ovi Maps application offering free voice-guided car and pedestrian navigation is available for Nokia E71 and E66 devices! New Ovi Maps come with a lot of new core features plus new map data, voice guidance (to be downloaded easily with Nokia Map Loader or Ovi Suite 2 package installed on your PC). The easiest way to get new application is to go to nokia.mobi/maps from you mobile.

New navigation applications for E71

It is very fruitful time in world of navigation. Since yesterday Nokia Beta Labs offers public beta version of Maps 3.0 available for more S60 3rd Edition FP1 and FP2 devices, including Nokia E71. The application is in beta version, but it is much faster in comparison to version 2.0 and has a lot of new features, including synchronizing your favorite places with browser-based Ovi Maps. This feature has been enthusiastically found by All About Symbian guys. Information about pure installation or upgrade from 2.0 can be found at the Beta Labs page. Please, be careful especially with upgrading from 2.0, as it requires installation of both special PC application and new Map Loader. Sometimes it is worth to read the manual first 😉

Moreover a few days earlier Google also released version 3.0.0.1 of their Maps for S60 application, which now incorporates service called Latitude. It allows your friends from Google contact list to see your location. The application is available from your mobile at m.google.com Cool, but be careful, especially if you have your boss on your list 😉 My first observation is, that while leaving the app, it asks you, if you want to continue showing your position to your friends. It’s quite misleading and it leads you to not to close Maps completely.
