Nokia Maps 3.08 update brings a nifty Weather plugin plus other improvements
The 3.08 update to Nokia Maps was pretty significant as it ushered Symbian^3 handset users in the era of the Belle/MeeGo interface. Now the update itself has been updated with a refined UI, and, most importantly, a nice little weather plugin in the form of a separate app.

The plugin shows an hourly or 5-day forecast for your current location, and all the usual things a weather app should do like swapping from Celsius to Fahrenheit and back.

Other improvements include live traffic routing directly from the Drive section start screen, toggle between time of arrival, travel time and distance to go directly from the map screen, quick access to the Drive To or Walk To sections upon long-tap on the screen, and a new installer UI, which guides you what is being installed at the moment.


With the new update, Nokia Maps is becoming an even better free offline navigation software, and it will be a great addition to the Windows Phone handsets when it lands there next year.
