Nokia Releases Maps 2.0 for Pedestrian Navigation

Nokia released the beta version of its Maps 2.0 application for pedestrian navigation, adding multimedia city guides, offering satellite images, and sporting a redesigned user interface.




Nokia Maps 2.0 adds Walk, a pedestrian focused navigation component to the application, while still offering Drive, a car navigation system. The pedestrian navigation efficiently walks you from A to B with visual turn-by-turn guidance. It gives information about the surrounding buildings, streets and parks (including pathways through the park) and in newer handsets, like the Nokia 6210 Navigator, points the direction in which you are walking; using the handset's built in compass for orientation.


The new Nokia Maps 2.0 update also adds the option to purchase first-class multimedia guides that feature photos, videos and audio streams to enlighten your journey even more. As with the previous version of Nokia Maps, map users will receive a free 3-day Navigation trial, for Walk and Drive, plus an additional free 10 minute City Guide trial.http://www.nokia.com
