BloGitud : Nokia GPS for free !!!

The manufacturer Nokia, the first global seller of mobile phones, announced the free availability for its Smartphones of its navigation system and pedestrian traffic “Ovi Maps”. This service is now available for ten Nokia smartphones.

After Google, which recently offered its GPS system on its Droid OS, it’s now the turn for Nokia to offer free navigation services. The Finnish firm, which until now was charging for its mapping systems, has changed its strategy due to the growing number of users of GPS mobile . according to a study made by Nokia, the number of people worldwide using GPS on their cell reached 27 million in late 2009. By providing navigation services, Nokia believes it can potentially increase its user to about 50 million.
Users of Nokia smart phones can now download the new online version of Ovi Maps. It includes features of road and pedestrian navigation with voice guidance in 74 countries, 46 languages, traffic information in over 10 countries, as well as detailed maps covering over 180 countries.

The navigation includes pedestrian shortcuts through parks and pedestrian areas in over 80 cities worldwide and 6000 3D landmarks in over 200 cities to facilitate localization.
The cards can be preloaded on the Internet so the Ovi Cards can be used in offline mode and thus preserve the phone battery and reduce connection costs when traveling abroad.
Free Ovi Maps is available for 10 models of Nokia smart phones, including N97 mini, 5800 XpressMusic, and E72. Other terminals will be added soon
