Nokia Ovi Maps – Mobile GPS Navigation – test

Nokia Ovi MapsFor some time I am pleased to use the free car navigation provided by Nokia ( Ovi Maps 3.0 ), but I have not had chance to test it on long-travel (2 x 12 h). An opportunity came up recently during a car trip to Croatia. Here is the results of my test:

A few words about Ovi Maps:

1. Ovi Maps is a free gps navigation for Nokia mobile phones.
2. Free-date maps of the entire world.
3. Ovi Maps can be downloaded from: Nokia

And now my opinions:

Overall:

1. I used the navigation on Nokia e71, which is having quite a small display.
2. Phone switched mode “Offline” (do not want to random downloads by roaming)
3. I use only the built-in (integrated) GPS transmitter without an option to support the A-GPS.
4. Route options set this to “Faster route.”

Pros:

1. Very good road maps. The only problem came on a few kilometers of the Slovak highway, which was open in a few days before trip.
2. Instant (approximately 2 seconds) the conversion of the new route has proved very useful in unexpected situations (eg, maintenance, tour, around the city, confusing route.)
3. When you opt to use free routes, navigation is able to lead us to the free sections of the highway.
4. Accurate and clear command.
5. Night mode.
6. Backlight setting, such as optimized, save the battery on the sections of the route on which we can not get lost:)
7. Battery life “offline” is about 6 hours.
8. Clear and transparent application menu, even though the tiny screens.
9. Pedestrian navigation with brief descriptions of the passing sights.

Cons:

1. There are no simple choice such as a gas station, cafe. You must use a search site like “petrol station”.
2. Calculation of travel time does not take into account our average speed, which in case you encounter traffic jams or road works distorts the estimated time of arrival.
3. After parking the car “in the field or even a few meters from the road, navigation can not find a route.
4. No information about the speed camera.

Summary:

Free car navigation available by Nokia – Ovi Maps, works very well in the short and long routes. Current free maps of europe, which I hope will be updated regularly, are probably the most important part of navigation. Very fast application performance with a clear interface should not cause anyone problems.

I recommend Ovi Maps :)
