Nokia has announced a new upgrade of its maps service. With the new Nokia Maps v 3.08, the maps application for Symbian based devices now even provides real-time weather forecast to the users. Notably, it provides up to five days of weather predictions as well.
Nokia has also added live traffic notification to the maps. Countries like Germany, France, US, UK and Russia can get real time traffic information using Nokia maps. But other countries will have to wait for some more time as Nokia plans to bring this feature soon.
The look and feel of the application has also been tweaked for an easier access and use. The search result system has been tweaked for better readability.
Nokia has also brought the ‘Drive to Contact’ feature back which was removed earlier due to some issues. With this feature, drivers can directions to their destinations.
Nokia Symbian users can straight away head to the Nokia Beta labs and try the new Nokia Maps on the Symbian devices including Nokia N8, Nokia C6-01, Nokia C7-00, Nokia E7-00, Nokia E6-00, and Nokia X 7-00 running the Symbian Anna or above. Non touch devices are not supported in this release.
