Nokia has just announced it is now offering Ovi Maps with turn-by-turn navigation to all users globally. Best of all, it’s also available for the Philippines for free.
The new Maps menu takes one click to calculate the best way to walk or drive to your destination, and to find your position, find places, find local Lonely Planet and Michelin listings, entertainment, or events nearby.
Best of all, the Maps can work even if you’re offline since the map data is already downloaded into your mobile phone (there’s be instances that map data is partially downloaded or new data needs to be downloaded from time to time).
The Ovi Maps with GPS navigation is currently available for the following handset models:
- Nokia E72
- Nokia N97 Mini
- Nokia X6
- Nokia E52
- Nokia E55
- Nokia 6730 Classic
- Nokia 6710 Navigator
- Nokia 5800 XpressMusic
- Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition
- Nokia 5230
No luck for owners of Nokia N97 and Nokia N900 though. The installation file is about 27.5MB and can be installed via the Nokia PC Suite. You can download it here.
