Nokia has stuck to its word, and has increased the compatibility of Ovi Maps v3.03, which provides free voice guided navigation on Nokia handsets. The announcement today is that you can now utilize both walk and drive navigation on your Nokia E71 and Nokia E66 for absolutely no cost whatsoever. This news comes after the announcement of the Nokia N86 8MP, which also recently joined this exclusive bunch. The compatibility of Ovi Maps v3.03 has now reached around 14 devices, and more and more handsets will gradually be supported. To get started, download the Ovi Maps 3.03 instillation file from our S60 3rd Edition Applications page.
Once you have installed the application on your handset, simply launch Ovi Suite on you PC to download all the maps and voices you desire. This is one of the best things about Ovi Maps, once you load up all the maps on your device, you never need an Internet connection when navigating, which not only cuts down on cost, but also saves you some precious battery power.
Note to users: If you do not install the new Ovi Maps application, you will continue to be prompted to pay the license fee. So make sure you download the newer version if you see this message.Tags | Applications, Breaking News, E-Series, E66, E71, Feature Pack 1, FREE, GPS, Navigation, Nokia, Ovi, Ovi Maps, Ovi Suite, Press Release, S60, S60 3rd Edition, Software, Voice UI
