Nokia‘s done it. A strong and aggressive move! Nokia makes walk and drive navigation free on its smartphones, doubling size of mobile navigation market.
All New Nokia GPS – Enabled smartphones will have new Ovi Maps App pre-loaded on it. It will have the local country map data and walk and drive navigation with access to location-aware Lonely Planet and Michelin travel guides at no extra cost.
The benefits are immense ! Drivers will receive traffic information, assistance, safety guidance, speed warnings etc. Pedestrians will be guided to safe pedestrian-only zones and quick shortcuts. And this will work offline as well. Beautiful!
