Nokia updates its maps – supports more countries and roads

Nokia has updated the map data, which is used on its navigation apps – such as Nokia Maps and Nokia Drive for Windows Phone, as well as the web service.

The update includes three new regions, more detailed coverage in some of the previously supported areas as well as new or amended roads in various countries worldwide.

The three new regions entering the services are Israel, Serbia and Kosovo. They got detailed road maps and satellite views like the others.

Russia, Norway and Sweden maps now offer higher detail levels in woods areas for better orientation. The pedestrian paths also got updated with more routes to include lesser known parks. Greece, France and Ireland maps now offer better detail in less populated areas too.

Finally, the maps various countries were updated with new roads. For example 133 000 km of new roads were added to the UK map.

So, if you are using a Nokia mapping solution and you are using offline maps, now is a good time to check for updates.
