Nokia's mass transit and walking navigation arrives to iOS and Android, priced $3.99 by Garmin
Garmin will offer public transport and walking directions supplied by Nokia as an in-app purchase in its iOS and Android applications. The service costs $3.99 ($2.99 for a limited time) and is branded as Urban Guidance.

Nokia has been mapping the world's largest cities public transport networks to provide timetables and route information for metro, buses, trams and so on for a while now, and finally this unique service is arriving to iOS and Android from Symbian and Windows Phone. 

The package also includes pedestrian navigation, which takes into account the lesser speed, and shows bridges, stairs and walkways, as well as offers shortcuts across the park, for example.

Garmin's new Urban Guidance add-on can be added to its StreetPilot Onboard and Navigon apps for iOS, and to Navigon for Android, offering specific POIs that can be enjoyed better by the walking types. How much is Garmin paying Nokia for its Transit and Pedestrian Content (TaP) access wasn't disclosed.
