Since the first Nokia Navigator made its appearance two years ago, the company has been updating and improving its location based services steadily and has now introduced the latest arrival in its Navigator line, the Nokia 6710 Navigator.
The 6710 Navigator will include the latest developments in the Maps software with real time ‘drive and walk’ navigation, full regional maps and hardware elements like the dedicated navigator key, touch area for easy zooming and a large display optimised for outdoor viewing.
The recent integration of Ovi Maps allows people to pre-plan their journey at home on their PC and synchronise with their mobile device. Additionally, Maps has been updated to include a number of new features such as high-resolution aerial images, 3D landmarks for over 200 cities, terrain maps, weather service, premium travel and events content and traffic and safety warnings. With both the new devices including a compass, working in conjunction with the new features of Maps, the pedestrian navigation experience has been significantly improved.
Included inbox is the Nokia CR-111 car holder, which cradles the Nokia 6710 Navigator easily in the car and completes the driving navigation solution. For those that want a little extra, there is a new arrival from Nokia accessories in the Nokia Speakerphone HF-310, which boasts high quality hands-free with echo cancellation and noise reduction. The speakerphone is easy to use in the car or office and can be installed easily with three different fixings.
To complement the impressive mapping capabilities, the Nokia 6710 Navigator has an improved design with a slightly curved shape, providing a pleasant feel with a soft touch surface. When holding the devices to take photos with the 5 megapixel camera, standard with Carl Zeiss optics and dual LED flash on both handsets, the new shape makes them easier to hold.
The Nokia 6710 Navigator will ship in the third quarter of 2009. Pricing and specs will be available closer to the launch date.
