Ovi Maps 3D – Enter A New Dimension

Ovi maps 3d is the new navigation service from Nokia. It is not available for Symbian or any other mobile OS but is meant for use via your PC web browser only… Disappointed ??? I am sure you wont be once you check out these cool 3D maps.

The supported browsers are

  • Mozilla Firefox 3.0+ (Mac and Windows)
  • Google Chrome 9.0+ (Mac and Windows)
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0+ (Windows)
  • Safari 4.0+ (Mac)

You can see the 3D maps in action at http://maps.ovi.com/3d. You’ll be prompted to download a plugin on your first visit.

Once the plugin is installed successfully you can access maps of 12 different cities from “Choose a city” option. However there is no city view for Indian cities, currently. But it’s coming soon!

Finally we bring you some screenshots of Nokia House (Finland) in astronaut and street view

The Ovi Maps 3D though still in beta can be considered as one of the best free navigation solutions available. We hope that Nokia soon brings them to their smartphones too with added features. Happy Navigation !!!
