FREE OVI Maps Navigation

21 01 2010

First with the news was Symbian-Guru that the announcement today by Nokia will bring FREE OVI Maps Navigation for selected Nokia devices only? Available for 10 of Nokia’s GPS-equipped devices: the Nokia N97 Mini, Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition, Nokia E52, Nokia E55, Nokia E72, Nokia 5230, Nokia 6710 Navigator, Nokia 6730 classic and Nokia X6.

Noticed no normal Nokia N97, this wont go down well with the already very unhappy N97 users, but I’ve been informed by Nokia Conversations that the N97 is coming soon along with other handsets. Speculation on twitter is its also coming to the N900 (whoop whoop!).

The Nokia Event kicked off at 09:45hrs GMT

UPDATE: GoogleMaps v3.2.1 and YouTube v2.2.17

20 08 2009

Just updated GoogleMaps and YouTube apps on my E71 and didn’t really notice any difference, no new features, but I’ve been informed the YouTube update actually brings fullscreen video play to the 5800XM and N97.

The Wife has my 5800XM at the moment as her’s is in for repair, so can’t fully verify for you all fullscreen works.

Download the new updates direct from Google at or download direct from the nokiAAddict Downloads page.
