Nokia Maps Now Offering Voice Guidance Via Android Web Browser

For the first time, Nokia Maps is offering audio directions with their in-browser map service. Without the use of an app, folks who are walking (only working function so far for voice) around through town can get audio directions from Point A to Point B as long as their location services are on in the browser. We may think this is nothing too special, but seeing as how it is all browser based and there is no application involved, it is quite nice. You can check it out via your device’s browser right here at  m.maps.nokia.com.

    Guess they can’t get the refresh rates in a browser to be fast enough for other modes of travel, ya know, like a car….haha.

    posting more would be appreciated.

    The only plus to Nokia’s Ovi Maps is that it’s offline. This is browser based, so that negates their one advantage over Google Maps.

      maybe this will allow non nokia phone owners to try it out before switching to a real phone instead of a p.o.s. android
