If youâ€™ve read my Nokia Lumia 610 review, you probably know by now Iâ€™m all praises for Nokia Maps and Nokia Drive.
But did you know that Nokia Maps isnâ€™t limited to Nokia Windows Phones only? Itâ€™s also available on Nokia Asha phones too.
And now, Nokiaâ€™s made it even better with the addition of voice search to Nokia Maps 2.0 so you donâ€™t have to type and drive while you seek its help to find the location of a certain place. Not just that, you can now also view your geo-tagged photos in Nokia Maps Suite 2.0, and enjoy the all-new and improved Route planner.
As to how you can enjoy all these new treats, simply update Nokia Maps on your Lumia or Asha to the latest version.
