In addition, urban travellers will be able to take full advantage of their surroundings and help them get from place to place with a variety of routing options.
Furthermore, the Omnia HD is incorporated with a social networking functionality which utilises NAVTEQ map data and content that allows a user to find their friends online and determine the quickest way to route or walk to them.
