The latest version of Ovi Maps offers additional features and services including high resolution satellite and terrain maps - both in 2D and 3D views. There are also 3D landmarks for over 200 cities, rotation, tilting, night view, and fly-over's and fly-through's.
The rich POI information of Ovi Maps is credited to Lonely Planet, Michelin and Wcities Destination Guide and comes to compliment the already available pedestrian and drive navigation services. Some of the other features of Ovi Maps like weather forecasts, safety and real-time traffic information, are now updated to cover more countries than the previous version.
Ovi Maps in action
An Ovi account allows you to search for addresses and POIs, find places, save them into Favorites, and organize them into Collections. You can then synchronize them over-the-air with your compatible mobile device.
The overall result is a service that can quite successfully compete to the omnipresent Google Maps. However competing with the best ain't easy and Nokia know that. So they are still struggling for improvement by starting an Ovi Maps developers contest, called "Apps on Maps". The finalists will earn cash prizes up to 30 000 US dollars while their software will get premium placement in the Ovi Store.
More information about the contest is available here.
