Nokia announced a new beta version of Ovi Maps for Symbian^1 (S60 5th Ed.) and Symbian^3 devices. The refreshed software offers a handful of new features. Nokia has improved the search functionality of Ovi Maps in order to help users locate nearby points of interest. It also offers search suggestions as users type their query. Nokia has added a Foursquare-esque feature that allows Ovi Maps users to check-in to their current location through a variety of social networks, such as Facebook. Users can then choose to share their location with friends via text message or email. One of the biggest improvement in Ovi Maps for S^3 devices is the addition of gesture controls. Users will be able to use pinch-to-zoom as well as pan and swipe for on-screen map navigation. Last, Ovi Maps now offers real-time traffic information as well as travel and safety alerts, speed limit warnings, and gas station locations. Nokia says the beta of Ovi Maps will be available later this month, and is expected to hit general release by the end of 2010.
