Nokia have announced today on their web site that OVI Maps (formerly Nokia maps) will now be free for all users.

Previously the maps were free to download and install but a licence was required for the navigation features.

Maps can either be accessed over the air as required or using the desktop software can be installed onto your mobile.

There is also now companion map software for the PC that allows you to syncronise information across platforms.

I have used OVI maps in the past but it is not the ideal system for car navigation. The mobile screen I found is to small and no ability to have the maps rotate so the direction of travel is upwards put me off. It will however be useful for walking around unfamiliar towns and cities. It is not an easy system to install POIs onto, you have to create Nokia Landmarks and then import them into the maps. As for the PGPSW camera database on the occasion I tried it my phone could just not cope with all the information.

The latest downloads are not yet available or my N97 as it is requiring a firmware update to cure the low memory issues.
