I Nokia Maps has received a new version. Even after the bad news that Nokia has not opted to use Android on their devices, applications for the Symbian platform still received some updates before being completely exchanged for the Windows Phone operating system and later Windows 10.
Nokia Maps updated
The latest versions of Nokia Maps, which are available for more devices, have received some interesting changes. The most important, and the biggest difference of Nokia Maps(in my opinion) is the possibility to download the maps directly on the phone, making them available offline. This makes things a lot easier, and Nokia Maps voice navigation is even more of a bonus to this great app. In many ways, it makes the app even better than voice browsing on Android.
In addition to offline maps and voice navigation, Nokia Maps also has some cool features. For example, integration between compass, display of public transport lines, save and fetch bookmarks, have more information of specific locations, and more. The app is available for all major mobile platforms: Android, Windows Phone, and iOS.
I recommend downloading and installing the application, even if it’s just for testing. Do not forget to download the maps for offline use as well. I’ve been using it for some time and I recommend it, but I suggest you have more than one map app on your smartphone or tablet, just in case.
