On the 21st Jan, Nokia has decided to give free walk & drive navigation for the new Ovi Maps supported Nokia devices.
Ovi Maps is a GPS based navigation program that works to navigate from one destination to other destination by driving/walking.

First you may need to update to the latest Ovi Maps via Ovi Store or check the Softwares update from your phone.

You also can download it manually to you PC HERE.

Next, get Maploader to download the updated maps and voice navigation. There are over 70 countries and 40 over voice language pack for the turn-by-turn navigation.

To use Maploader, Nokia PC Suite are required to be installed

This is how Ovi Maps menu look like.

The UI of Ovi Maps is simple and user friendly. The loading/exiting of Ovi Maps is absolutely fast.

The premium features are available such as Share Location via Facebook, Weather Forecast, Events, Lonely Planet & HungryGoWhere.

3 different views of the maps are available; Terrain View, Map View and Satellite View. It does support 3D view & night time mode.

The navigation are very simple. Click/Tap on the Find Places and search for your destination. It will list you the most similar closest/search result. Click/Tap on the destination you want and select Drive/Walk. It's that simple.

Share Location works as how FourSquare does where it share where you are now via Facebook.

Events is to check what and where events that going only around your places.

Weather Forecast are also available in Ovi Maps.

If you travels a lot, Lonely Planet and HungryGoWhere would come in very handy.

Lonely Planet

It's a Travel Guides apps for travel advice, tip and destination information.


HungryGoWhere is the best foods guide of Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Sydney, Melbourne and a lot more of restaurants and pubs. It has foods review with rating and best for money before you actually dine-in. Indeed a good apps to kill hunger with great foods.


Nokia has just announced they are making walk and drive navigation free on their smartphones with the new version of Ovi Maps.

Yeah! It mean FREE to use the features including the ability to easily share your location with your friends, sync your landmarks and routes with Ovi Maps online, and get weather and other local information at no extra cost

What does the FREE ON NEW SMARTPHONE mean?

There are only 10 Nokia's GPS enabled devices given free premium features such as the Nokia N97 mini, Nokia 5800 XPM, Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition, Nokia E52, Nokia E72, Nokia 5230, Nokia 6710 Navigator, Nokia 6730 and the new Nokia X6

Nokia is aiming to make the best maps with voice guided navigation available worldwide for free. It's certainly a good move for Nokia to make the premium content of Ovi Maps for free whereas the latest version of Android were given free-voice-guided turn-by-turn with Google.

We want to make using your mobile for navigation as familiar as using it to send a text or take a picture. We believe that making the best maps with voice guided navigation available for free will be the catalyst to do this. Why have a mobile phone and a separate car navigation system that works in only one country or region? Put the two together, make it free, make it global and you have something that is truly useful and can help you get round almost any city in the world whether you’re on foot or driving.

Say Anssi Vonjoki, Executive Vice President of Nokia

The new Ovi Maps are now available to download for the 10 Nokia handsets that I've mentioned earlier.

What is Nokia ComesWithMusic all about?

Nokia ComesWithMusic is a music services provided by Nokia to have unlimited music downloads legally from most of the major labels Music Companies like EMI, Sony Music, Warner Music, Universal and more.

When you have purchased a Nokia ComesWithMusic you are entitled to get 12 months unlimited music downloads and the best thing is you can keep the music forever.

For time being the only devices that supported this feature is the Nokia N97 mini and the so-to-be-launched Nokia X6.

Here a short video to show you a rough idea how the Nokia ComesWithMusic works

Once you have purchased a Nokia ComesWithMusic phone you will be given an activation card with code on it to activate the ComesWithMusic services.

Download and install the Nokia Ovi Player (it works as a music management as well as a music player when you minimized it) if you are already an existing Ovi account user, just sign in with you ID or register a new account with Ovi.

Once is done, key in the activation code and you may start downloading music or even the entire album with just one click. The downloads doesn't limited only with laptop, it also can be download straight from the phone as well.

The website of the Nokia ComesWithMusic catalogue is neat, well categories/organized for ease search.

Example; Top 40 Album Charts, Top 40 Singles Chart and Genre from Asian, Bollywood, Pop, Dance, Country and so on. There were also a list of most downloaded music where you can get the latest what the music up to.

It's a great way to discovering new songs and new artistes with ComesWithMusic.

All the songs downloaded are in Digital Rights Management (DRM) wma format whereby it's protected and not transferable to other's computer/phone. So all the music you've download are bond with one computer and one device with ComesWithMusic account, you are allowed to change the dedicated device once every 3 months if anything happened.

So what do you think about the Nokia ComesWithMusic services?
