Nokia Maps v3.0 released.
Nokia just introduced their latest version of the highly popular Nokia Maps v3.0. It has a inbuilt synchronisation with their very own all in 1 service the Ovi. Also it has got better maps than ever before, enhanced Drive and Walk navigation.
Some advantages from the previous editions include the following as found from the Nokia Beta labs page : Start-up sequence takes you to your current position as soon as position is found. If your position is not found in few seconds, you are taken to last known position
- You can rotate the map, so you can for example view 3D landmarks from all directions. Just press 4 and 6 in map view. Pressing 5 takes you back to ‘north up’ view
- In 3D view mode, you can tilt the view by pressing 2 and 8
- 2D/3D mode works with all map modes, i.e. with Map/Satellite/Terrain
- My Favourites menu is cleaned up and History list is moved higher in menu
- My Places has option “Point me to” for any saved place/landmark, you the direction to that place on the map
- In addition to the synchronisation of Favourites and Collections with Ovi Mapsand vice versa (use in online mode, enable Internet connection), you can now plan routings on Ovi Maps and synchronise to your device
- Finally, many bugs have now been fixed
