Mobile manufacturer Nokia have announced this week that they will be releasing an update to their Nokia Maps application. Nokia Maps is a free downloadable application to your mobile phone, and can be used on S60 and Windows mobile enabled phones, mobiles that have inbuilt GPS and those without as long as you add on an external GPS module.

Nokia Maps 2.0 offers both Walk and Drive options - meaning you can use it to navigate you from A-to-B when you are either on foot or in the car. The on foot navigation is a great additional feature which should prove to be very useful on a mobile phone, as most people tend to carry around with them every day. The Nokia Maps application also offers voice guided turn-by-turn directions, satellite images and multimedia city guides to make it a good all round navigation solution.

Nokia are now teaming up in Europe with ARC Transistence (who are in-vehicle information specialists) to bring Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) on their Nokia Maps application. This extra traffic spotting service will only be available as a premium service, so will unfortunately set you back a few pennies but should be worth it for those long distance drivers who are looking to shave time off their journeys.

Nokia has not yet made a comment on how much the extra Real Time Traffic Information service will cost or when it is due to be released, but as a pre-release version of Nokia Maps version 2.0 is already available to download, it should not be too long before the new service hits mobile phones.
