As per Nokia offcial blog “One of the most exciting aspects of today’s news is the fact that all new GPS-enabled Nokia smartphones from March 2010 will come with this fresh version of Ovi Maps installed, meaning free global sat-nav is now a staple ingredient in all top-end Nokia handsets from here on in.”
With the latest version of OVI maps you can have free instant worldwide access to top quality pedestrian and in-car navigation for lifetime without any cost.
According to Anssi Vanjoki is Executive Vice President at Nokia,
“We want to make using your mobile for navigation as familiar as using it to send a text or take a picture. We believe that making the best maps with voice guided navigation available for free will be the catalyst to do this. Why have multiple devices that only work in one country or region? Put it all together, make it free, make it global and you have something that is truly useful and can help you get round almost any city in the world whether you’re on foot or driving.”
