Nokia outs Ovi Maps 3.0

Nokia has recently announced the release of its latest version of its Ovi Maps software used in more than 40 of its GPS-enabled handsets. Now available for download, Ovi Maps 3.0 has a number of enhancements, including high resolution satellite and terrain maps in both 2D and 3D views, as well as 3D landmarks for more than 200 large cities. The latter allows users to view the virtual landmarks with fly-overs, fly-throughs, in a night view and by rotating and tilting the perspective. There is also a new Walk mode for navigating on foot, while the Drive mode provides speed limit information, location of speed cameras, real-time traffic and lane assistance.

There are new points of interest and added information on them from Lonely Planet, Michelin and Wcities. A weather service is integrated as well, providing users with 24-hour and five-day forecasts for a particular location.

Via Ovi Maps on the web, users can pre-organize their trip on their home computers, save them into favorites or organize them into collections, then synchronize either over-the-air with their primarily newer Nokia S40 and Symbian S60 cellphones.
