Nokia Makes Worldwide Walk & Drive Navigation Free On Smartphones
In a move to counter Google’s Free navigation applications, Nokia just announced that starting March 2010, new Nokia GPS-enabled smartphones will include the new version of Ovi Maps www.nokia.com/maps, pre-loaded with local country map data, and that turn-by-turn voice guidance will be free for 74 countries in 46 languages.
The new version will also include traffic information for over 10 countries, as well as detailed maps for over 180 countries. The nice thing about Ovi maps is that they come preloaded to your Nokia device saving you time and cost of downloading map data over the cloud.
Here is a video of Ovi maps on N900:
