Nokia updates Nokia Maps, adds Israel and other countries
Turn-by-turn navigation for Israel and Serbia is coming soon
To illustrate the painstaking work that has gone on in the last 18 months with Nokia Maps, during that time period 133,000 km of roads have been added or updated just in the U.K. alone. Mapping applications received a lot of coverage by us last year, and not all of it was for positive reasons. But hearing about this update has to make Nokia users feel better. Well, except maybe for those in Japan which is still nothing but a black spot on Nokia Maps.

It is. On my Lumia 920, Cebu is working great on both Nokia Map and Drive+

no it's not. i didn't use nokia maps in my life, nor i know how good they are, but what i do know is that google maps has almost the whole globe covered (i mean basic street mapping, lets not get to street view), so until nokia covers what google already has, it's not even close of being better.

It differs from country to country. In my region (India) nokia maps is better since google maps misses some streets.

I think these addition of maps will benifit offline maps. While google maps needs constant 3g/4g/wifi connection.

Nokia has great mapping services, and certainly does give Google a run for it's money. It simply depends which platform you choose. Android is more popular, but WP8 is good too, and the UI and other features are vastly improved over previous versions (aka Windows Mobile). Ultimately, it's a matter of personal preference...

This is totaly false information.
Nokia maps are still mising for Serbia.
No cirilic writing for Serbia, no maps...
