Ovi MapsBeta for mobile
Whether you explore a city on foot, hit the road driving, plan a trip, or just want to get the best out of a new destination, Ovi Maps is always at your fingertips on your mobile and PC or Mac.
With Ovi Maps, you can easily find your current location, places nearby, and addresses you are looking for, and save all your favourite places. Get to your destination safe and sound with Drive and Walk, real-time car and pedestrian navigation. If you preload the map data on your compatible Nokia device with Map Loader, you can also use all these features and services offline.
