Nokia revamps Ovi Maps with various enhancements to meet the competition
When you think about maps applications out there, Google Maps Navigation will easily stand tall amongst the heap of offerings thanks partly to its tight integration of Google services that enhances the user experience. On the other hand, Nokia is stepping things up with their Ovi Maps to meet the competition openly with various enhancements that should prove to be alluring to most people.

During Nokia World, the Finnish maker announced some new features with Ovi Maps such as live traffic flow information, public transportation maps, a brand new drive assist mode, social check-ins, and a redesigned places page. For those who intend on using their public transportation maps, it will only be offered in over 80 cities around the world – so just don't be too surprised if its not available in your area just yet. And of course you can't hide the fact that social networking integration is going to be a key area moving forward – so that's why you'll be able to share your location on various social networking sites through SMS. All in all, it appears as though this should be able to keep users content as we continue to see it evolve.
