|Nokia Launches Map Navigation For Its Phone Handsets|
Nokia Launches Map Navigation For Its Phone Handsets [news.bbc.co.uk]
|Phone giant Nokia has launched a free map and navigation service for its handsets that analysts believe could challenge stand-alone sat-nav devices. |
The service stores maps on the phone, cutting down the need to update and download new ones over the network.
Ovi maps will initially be available on 10 handsets and will offer so-called "turn-by-turn" navigation, similar to that in existing GPS devices.
Where does this, and Google's service, too, leave standalone satnav makers?
I'm a bit annoyed about the phones they have selected for this. I have the flagship Nokia N97 and can I get this software on it? NO!. But the N97 mini can. Where's the logic in that?

This list is more complete and has the Nokia n97 option.
Looks like I jumped the Gun, it looks like you can only get the maps from that link. Not the navigation software.[/edit]
