Nokia Enhances Ovi Maps


Nokia's Ovi Maps walk and drive navigation service from Nokia will deliver more relevant information on more points of interest.

The updated Ovi Maps gives travelers and locals alike the ability to find the most interesting places and sites in the area making traveling less about getting from A to B and more about enjoying everything in between.

Ovi mixes content with the location, social networking and connectivity services and is the go to-place for discovering, sharing and enjoying lifestyle content and entertainment, all from a Nokia smartphone.

Ovi Maps now includes Qype, Europe's biggest portal for local community-based reviews, helping people find new places wherever they are, leaving nothing overlooked.

Initially offering information on more than 20,000 cities, the Qype community enriches Ovi Maps with reviews and recommendations from locals and travelers on many European hotspots like caf?s, shops, spas and hotels, giving the inside track before arriving. And, with a new post added to Qype every 40 seconds, people are assured to have the latest information to help them make the best choices no matter what they are looking for.

In total,Ovi Maps now offers Nokia smartphone users access to more than 25 million points of interest worldwide. Whether people are looking for a souvenir shop or a youth hostel, trips can be personalized and planned right down to the last detail with map data from NAVTEQ and city guides from Lonely Planet, WCities and Michelin. Agreements with directory companies such as telegate in Germany, Turkey Yellow Pages and Yell Publicidad-P?ginas Amarillas in Spain make it even easier than before to find the closest pharmacy, cash machine, shop or service. Hotel booking services such as HRS and Expedia make it easy to find a place to stay.

For people planning a road trip, Nokia has started to include car kits with new smartphones in-the-box at no extra cost which makes finding new places and navigating whilst driving safe and easy. And, with the added convenience of pedestrian routes for exploring cities on foot, swapping the phone from car to pocket makes navigating around new places easier, no matter how people choose to do it.

The latest version of Ovi Maps (3.04) is available to download for free from www.nokia.com/maps
