OVI Maps GUI Redesigned

If you are happy to run Beta software on your N97 head over to OVI Maps Beta on Nokia Betalabs.

It has a completely revamped GUI, intended to be more Touch interface compatible. It starts a great deal faster and sports new Michelin, Lonely Planet and local event guides and adds a “Take me home” option.

It is a pitty that the multi-point route options are removed. The only workaround for this is to create a route to a single point and then select “Options”, “Route Points” and “Add new route point”. The only problem with this is that aditional points must be based on POIs, but this is better than nothing

In this new version of Maps changing Navigation screen views is now acheived by swiping across the screen left or right which makes life a lot easier.

In my opinion it is an impressive improvement of the application. If only the GPS fix quality issue had been rectified, but this is still a little eratic.
