As jay earlier announce, Nokia’s big news is the FREE Ovi maps for everyone forever on Nokia devices!
Currently this is available on the following devices:
- N97 Mini
- 6730 Classic
- 6710 Navigator
- 5800 Express Music
- 5800 Navigation Ediion
UPDATE 1: Jay just provided us with the following news:
Nokia N97 support is available on the 28th January 2010. A week away.
I would also expect many more to follow until they are all supported!!
UPDATE 2: I’v just discovered that the new maps are a LOT more compressed due to the way they draw the landscape and the entire collection (Europe, America, Asia, Australia, and Africa) only comes to 5.6GB which is tiny for almost the whole world!!!…i’m just loading them onto mine now and we will see how it is!
To get it just go to: www.nokia.co.uk/maps
OR from your phone go to: www.nokia.mobi/maps/dl
I have just loaded this onto my X6 (8.2mb download – Version 3.03(246)) and it looks great! Here are a few Pics, I’ll try to get more later.
You might Notice in the last image, you do get a lot of things on screen including the 3D landmarks, Point of interests, etc so Nokia have not skimped out on anything!!
