If you can recall, Nokia first launched their free turn by turn Ovi Maps application to all of their users earlier in the year, however, one problem was that it didn’t extend its support to all potentially compatible phones. But now the good news has dropped for Nokia E71 and Nokia E66 users: you can now install the latest and free version of Ovi Maps on your phone!
Drive and walk navigation and location-aware social networking are now within your fingertips. No more losing your way any where you go and you will have this benefit with or without data connection.
These two phones are the latest of the S60 v3.1 or older devices that have been retrofitted with the latest Ovi Maps version. Don’t expect premium content such as Lonely Planet or ViaMichelin though as the team worked around technical limitations of the older devices just to integrate a complete navigation functionality into them.
Nonetheless, as per GSMArena, their readers reported that the version of Ovi Maps for Nokia E71 and Nokia E66 phones work just as good as those installed in NSeries phones like N95.
All a user has to do is download Ovi Maps and transfer it to the phone using Ovi Suite. Download to PC can be done from nokia.com/maps. Also, try to check if the Ovi Maps for the phone is already available for direct download to mobile from nokia.mobi/maps. Soon, Ovi Maps will also be available from Ovi Store.
On the side, users can also download country maps and enjoy offline navigation. No more scratching of the head or waving of arms in frustration while on the steering wheel — use Ovi Maps to get to the desired destination on time, all the time.
