The first turn-by-turn voice guided navigation application for Nokia’s Maemo platform is here. Sygic Mobile Maps has just become compatible with Maemo, and brings animated 3D maps to your Nokia N900. Although Ovi Maps was released with free voice guided navigation for Nokia’s Symbian devices, there has been no indication of imminent support for the Maemo platform. Sygic have timely released there solution for a very tasty price tag of €59.99 (Europe). What’s more is that Sygic’s maps are created by Navteq, an operating unit of Nokia and leading global provider of digital map, traffic and location data, as is Ovi Maps. We’ll be testing this newcomer over the weekend and will feedback to you our thoughts sometime next week. But for now, check out the full list of features including the video demo after the break.
