Nokia offers free lifetime global navigation and makes in-car navigation an absolute breeze

Nokia has started to ship its latest smartphones to Oman with a free car holder, charger, and preloaded Ovi Maps in the sales pack, making in-car navigation an absolute breeze. Nokia’s walk and drive navigation is free on its smartphones as part of a new version of Ovi Maps, also available for download at for existing Nokia users with compatible smartphones.

Navigation packages are now available for the 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia N97, Nokia N97 mini, Nokia E52, Nokia E72, Nokia 5230, Nokia 6710 Navigator and Nokia X6. All new Nokia GPS-enabled smartphones include the new version of Ovi Maps, pre-loaded with local country map data, with walk and drive navigation and access to Lonely Planet travel guides at no extra cost. Existing compatible Nokia devices that can download the new Ovi Maps are Nokia N97 mini, N97, Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia E52, Nokia E72, Nokia 5230, Nokia 6710 Navigator, Nokia 6730 classic Nokia 6720, Nokia E71, Nokia E66, Nokia X6, and Nokia N86.

Nokia’s mapping and navigation software has been specifically designed for mobile use and is based on unique hybrid technology. The new version of Ovi Maps will include all essential car and pedestrian navigation features, such as turn-by-turn voice guidance for 78 countries in 46 languages, and traffic information for over 10 countries, as well as detailed maps for over 180 countries. The maps also include 8,203 points of interest for Oman.

“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,” explained Tarek Zaki, Solutions Manager, Navigation, Nokia. “Why have multiple devices that work in only 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.”

Six key features that sets Ovi Maps apart:

  1. 1. No hidden costs

The new version of Ovi Maps comes with all the maps and high-end, car grade navigation features you need for free and is yours to keep for the life of the smartphone. No additional licenses needed for extra countries, regions or services like traffic information or city guides.

  1. 2. Best global coverage

You take your mobile with you wherever you go in the world so, as standard, voice guided navigation for both pedestrians and drivers is available for 78 countries in 46 different languages and there are maps for over 180 countries that can be downloaded via ovi suite. This gives you the best maps with the largest global coverage for free.

  1. 3. No network connection required when navigating
    Avoid expensive, battery-draining network connections with Nokia’s unique hybrid technology. Maps can be pre-loaded on to your Nokia smartphone so you can set Ovi Maps to offline mode, saving battery power, and the navigation system will still work. This is particularly useful for those worried about data connection costs when travelling abroad or when you are travelling through areas with little or no network coverage.
  2. 4. Unique hybrid technology
    Ovi Maps is built on an advanced technology called hybrid vector maps. Vector maps are high quality but less data intensive and allow you to continue to navigate even if you lose your network connection. This means that maps downloaded or updated across a network connection are about half the size of bulky bitmaps used by other mobile map providers. The hybrid technology ensures that, unlike other providers, any downloaded map data is stored on the device for future use.
  3. 5. Voice guidance
    Turn-by-turn, voice guided navigation comes free for both drivers and pedestrians. For drivers this includes lane assistance. For pedestrians this includes shortcuts through parks and pedestrian-only zones for over 100 cities around the world as well as 6000 3D landmarks in over 200 cities to help you find exactly where you are.
  4. 6. Share location to facebook and other premium services:

The new ovi maps allows you to share your location to your facebook straight from your mobile.  In addition , ovi maps also gives you online weather forecasts and lonely planet guides for over 1000 destinations

Ovi Maps in your Own Voice

If you like the sound of your own voice, or are simply fed up of being told what to do, then Own Voice for Ovi Maps is just for you. Own Voice lets you record and share your own navigation instructions for Ovi Maps, directly from your Nokia. Simply download the app to your device from ovi store and as quickly as you can say various versions of “Turn left in 200m” 53 times, you’ll have your very Own Voice pack for navigation.
The Own Voice app lets you create a new voice pack, taking you through each step of the process. To kick things off, find a quiet space to record, then let the app take you through each of the 53 required commands including my favourite “You have reached your destination”. When you’re done recording, you simply add your name, hit save and the voice pack is uploaded to the Own Voice website.
