Nokia introduces E71, E66 with free navigation

Pioneer in mobile telecommunications and world’s leader in mobile devices, Nokia has introduced two latest mobile phones, Nokia E71 and E66, with free navigation.

Nokia Communications Manager for West Africa, Mrs. Ngozi Ife Anene, disclosed that the free walk and drive navigation is now available for the Nokia E71 and Nokia E66.

As said by her in a press statement made available to ITRealms Online, 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 X6 since January this year.

She noted that it was after due consideration that Nokia as a firm that listens to customer feedback, decided to that its Ovi Maps team create a version that works on Nokia E71 and Nokia E66.

She explained that people would be able to use Ovi Suite to sideload the latest country maps onto their devices so they could 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, she said, the application to existing devices, it is not possible to offer further premium -content such as Guide Michelin and Lonely Planet guides.

These two devices, she said, would be the last of the S60 3.1 and older devices to sport this version of Ovi Maps, assuring that every upcoming Nokia smartphone will come with free walk and drive navigation out of the box.

These two Eseries devices, she said, 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.

Ovi Maps compatible devices include the Nokia N97, Nokia N97 mini, Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition, Nokia E52, Nokia E55, Nokia E72, Nokia 5230, Nokia 6710 Navigator, Nokia 6730 classic, Nokia X6, Nokia N86 8MP and with different functionality the Nokia E71, and Nokia E66.
