Beta Labs: Nokia City Scene updated for N9

| August 15, 2012 | 22 Replies

Nokia Conversations posted up that there is an update for City Scene on the N9, over at Beta Labs. Having a look, the last update seems to have occurred two weeks ago. Anyway, the Beta Labs page lists the following changes:

  • Fixes the startup crash issues some users had with 2.0.4
  • Navigation supported, so you can see your route on panoramas
  • In selected cities, you will also get navigation directions based on store signs recognized from the environment (beginning with San Francisco and a few more will be added in coming days)
  • Navigate to any of these destinations:
    • business or service you’ve searched
    • destination on the map
    • friend’s check-in
    • place you have stored as your favorite
  • For a given navigation route, you can prefetch all the panoramas before starting the navigation. For example if you are connected to Wi-Fi when starting the navigation, you can reduce the amount of data traffic needed while actually walking the route.

There is also this accompanying video:
