NOKIA Ovi Maps V3.08 Update


Recommended Posts

Nokia Beta Labs team have just released the new update for the Ovi Maps that brings new features cleaner navigation and more user friendly interface!

The latest version of Maps v3.08 is here with a beautiful little weather plug-in/app to help you plan for the day by the hour or give you a handy five day overview. With this lovely app you can get conditions by the hour to help you prepare for the day, or expected forecasts to help you plan your week.

Aside from the new weather app but to make your commute safer, they’ve added live traffic routing info in the Drive start screen, cleaned up the UX framework and made search results easier to read. And remember that really annoying Drive to contacts crashing bug? Gone.

There’s also a new installation UI that shows you what’s installing in your phone as it happens, instead of one massive file uploading at once. Be warned that you will need an internet connection the entire time of installation and it may take longer than before. Apologies in advance for this! Rest assured, it’s a necessary step for very cool things to come!

Ovi Maps v3.08 with Weather appis available for all Symbian^3 devices: Nokia N8, Nokia E7, Nokia C7, Nokia C6-01 as well as for just released Nokia E6 and Nokia X7 if you are lucky enough to have one.

What’s different from v3.07?

Drive Enhancements:

Live traffic routing takes traffic information into account to avoid traffic jams automatically (available in Germany, France, US, UK and Russia).

Turn on “Avoid traffic” in your “Route settings” to take traffic conditions into account while you drive. Always get the best route for right now.
