Ovi Maps beta updated with the ability to download Street Maps without a PC

Ovi Maps keeps getting better. The latest version of Nokia’s free navigation application/service adds few handy features, including:

  • Ability to download street maps directly to your device! A new feature called “Update” on the main menu will allow you download Street Maps without a PC. Of course, it is suggested to use this feature only when in a WiFi hotspot.
  • “My Position” and “Search” are now integrated – now called Map. When accessed, it will show your last map view.
  • Add back button in Favorites
  • Long tap functionality for deleting and renaming of collections and routes
  • Popup for first time use – to inform you to download new map data (when upgrading 3.04 > 3.06 for the first time)
  • Improved behaviors of transit lines settings in map toolbox (no more grey out)
  • Compass calibration hint
  • Refreshed place details information view

As usual, Nokia wants your feedback. If you want to share your two cents, feel free to do so in the comments section of this post. And you can download the latest version of Ovi Maps beta from here.
