Nokia E71 and Nokia E66 get free Ovi Maps

Nokia E71 E66 Ovi Maps
07 April 2010 Free walk and drive navigation is now available for the Nokia E71 and Nokia E66. The latest version of Ovi Maps with free walk and drive navigation has been available on a range of devices such as the Nokia E72, Nokia N97 mini, and Nokia X6 since January. After listening to customer feedback though, the Ovi Maps team has now created a version that works on Nokia E71 and Nokia E66. 


To enjoy free navigation with Ovi Maps on Nokia E71 and Nokia E66 devices, users should follow these simple steps: 


1. Download the new Ovi Maps application from nokia.com/maps to your PC
2. Install the application using Ovi Suite to your device
3. Go to applications folder and start using Ovi Maps 


If users do not install the new Ovi Maps application, they will be prompted to pay the one year navigation license of 9.99 EUR if they start using the drive and walk navigation feature. 


Users will be able to use Ovi Suite to sideload the latest country maps onto their devices so they can enjoy offline map browsing alongside free navigation. 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 backporting the app to existing devices, it isn't possible to offer further premium content such as Michelin and Lonely Planet guides. These two devices will also be the last of our S60 3.1 and older devices to sport this version of Ovi Maps. But every upcoming Nokia smartphone will come with free walk and drive navigation out of the box. 


These two Eseries devices join the recently compatible Nokia N86 8MP, which some users discovered earlier than anticipated. See below for a full list of compatible devices. 


The update is available now from Nokia.com/maps, and will also be available in Ovi Store.
