Nokia today announced the availability of Ovi Maps 3.3 (3.03) for the Nokia E71 and E66. The updated version brings the free worldwide pedestrian and car navigation edition of Ovi Maps to these devices. Nokia says the release is a result of listening to consumer feedback: 'you spoke, we listened', says the press release. The E71 and E66 versions do not include the Lonely Planet guides due to technical constraints, but the core navigation offering is the same as that found on more recent devices.


"The process of making the latest version of Ovi Maps available for existing devices is quite involved, but the team managed to include complete navigation functionality. Due to technical constraints in back porting the app to existing devices, unfortunately, it wasn’t possible to offer further premium content such as the Michelin and Lonely Planet guides."

The announcement is a follow on from January 21st, when Nokia announced that Ovi Maps was going free.

In the press release, Nokia note that the E71 and E66 will be "the last of our S60 3.1 and older devices to sport this version of Ovi Maps". This means we will not be seeing free navigation support for the Nokia N95 and other S60 3.1 devices. However, as we noted in an earlier story Nokia have reduced the licenses prices significantly for pre-3.3 versions of Ovi Maps, which means navigation is available for older devices at a very low cost.

Cheers.

I had a 3 month trial....it's done now so was looking for a replacement.

Thank you though!!
#22
Thanks for this post - had some sort of trial version on my 5800 - downloaded this version and the sat-nav voice directions are great! If I program in a route at home, while the phone is connected to the internet by wifi, does it download all the maps it needs for the journey or does it do that along the way? Just wondering if it would make inroads into my 3g data allowance...
#23
you download the maps prior to using, the uk map was about 150mb

I have an X6 and ovi maps is on it. I don't have free internet. I used ovi maps, the offline mode and I am sure I got charged for it. 85p has appeared on my bill and I don't know what else it could be for.
Is it free? I've never been given a conclusive answer.
#25
i've been using the OVI maps on my e71 for a while,

Yes its free in offline mode, but you may have A-GPS turned on, which uses internet to speed up GPS lock. Try turning it off, if you dont have any free data, it will still work with the built in GPS receiver.

repped
