Nokia Maps v2.0 wk21 b02 -> OUT OF BETA !!!

Drive, Walk and Discover the updated version of Nokia Maps



See the world in a new way with Nokia Maps. With downloadable maps for more than 200 countries, and millions of points of interest to be discovered, there are treasures to be found and shared.

Explore…
You can find your destination and plan your route street by street, city to city. You can get a different perspective with satellite, hybrid, and street maps. And, you can enhance your visit with multimedia city guides.

Drive…
Get a clear view of the road ahead with Drive. World-class car navigation with turn-by-turn visual and voice guidance, plus added real-time traffic feeds and dynamic re-routing to help you arrive on time.
Nokia Maps offers world-class car navigation with turn-by-turn visual and voice guidance. Drive gets you to your destination using an advanced trip planner for routing multi-stop journeys – getting you from A to B and then on to C.

Traffic feeds and re-routing
Traffic Info helps you avoid the jam with real-time traffic feeds and dynamic re-routing. With Traffic info activated, Nokia Maps informs you if there’s a problem up ahead, and your device dynamically re-routes to help keep you clear of congestion.

Great visibility
A clear view of the road ahead is essential. Drive on Nokia Maps has three! You can easily switch views, follow clear route signposts, and select other navigation controls from a highly visual grid menu.

...or Walk
Innovative turn-by-turn pedestrian navigation, Walk is the shortcut to learning a new city on foot. With advanced multi-sensor positioning, you can cut corners like a local or hop on at clearly marked transport stops.

Improvements to maps 2.0:

Send location to a friend (it has this option, of sorts but it doesnt work properly).


A new maploader. One that not only does maps, but lists new POI lists, and the date they were updated. Im sure they can get them more than twice a year.

Less searching online. Takes FAR too long to search for just a postcode. Could be done in less then a second if it was offline. I understand POI being online, but not things like postcodes and addresses.

Seeing as Nokia Maps 2 is now officially out, is there any sign of some sort of manual, or any idea of what type of POIs are available.

It would be nice to know what categories they have, so you know if you search for something it might be there.

The new map loader is good. Handy that it tells you there are new maps. And if I'm not wrong the new map data for Europe take up around 200MB less room than the old data did.
