Ovi Maps with Free Navigation now in SW Update

I don't know if this is breaking news or not, but I've just checked SW update and Ovi Maps 3.3 is in there! It's listed as "Ovi Maps - with free navigation 3.3" with a size just under 8Mb.

I'll post a screenshot in a bit... oh, and download it myself

[EDIT] Screenshot attached now...

[UPDATE] Installation failed first time for me. Uninstalled Nokia Maps (beta) and tried again... with success

I'm not holding my breath with the new firmware. Even if it does come out tomorrow, it might not be available for UK unbranded models for a while (even longer for branded ones!).

I am doubtful now if there is a firmware upgrade in the pipeline? Why would they release this today and a FW version that does the same tommorrow? Maybe this is their solution and we have to take the hit on our c: drive.

Has anyone tried the install from the SW update screen?

Sounds like Steve Litchfield has stumbled across this as well, and comments that Nokia may not have got the firmware ready in time so they've released the app as an update instead. It's posted on the AAS front page now: http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/news/...tion_hits_.php

...I was first though

Just thought I'd mention that mine seems to have installed fine first try and I did already have the beta installed. I don't have a huge amount of C space left now so time for a clearout I think.

Also I'm both happy and impressed that this has been given to us as a software update - if they release it integrated into the next firmware that'll be great, but considering how long 3 took to bring out v20 and how some people are still waiting it would have been a bit unfair to force everyone to wait for a network approved update.

Farenheit means nothing to me.

Try:-

Maps > Settings > Map > System of measurement > set to metric

(this however changes everything to metric, including distances).

Handy conversion tip:-

To convert from Fahrenheit to Celsius:
C = (F - 32) x (5 / 9)

* Begin by subtracting 32 from the Fahrenheit number.
* Divide the answer by 9.
* Then multiply that answer by 5.


Hope that helps.

Mine went from 40 to 26.3 - why the difference? Strange...

Nah the voices should be installed to Mass Memory by default, along with the Maps.

I'm very impressed with Nokia's move though, to give us all free navigation!! I tried it out for the first time when driving home. It got confused when I reached a junction from a road that ran parallel to, and only a few feet away from, the road I was heading towards. It thought I was on the other road going the opposite direction and recalculated itself.

Just think... all I need is a windscreen mount, an in-car charger, and to find out a way to get custom voices (if it's possible), and I'm set!
