Nokia has also improved its pedestrian navigation, giving users a straight-line guidance that takes 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.
The company has also extended its service from the mobile device to the PC or Mac. As well as allowing consumers to explore relevant locations around the world, Ovi Maps on web enables them to share their location, personal content and experiences with friends.
Nokia’s 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 at www.nokia.com/maps for selected Nokia devices.
