In an effort to help travellers around the world, Nokia and Lonely
Planet have teamed up to distribute Lonely Planet content via Nokia Maps. Travellers can purchase and download City Guides, offering them information at their fingertips whilst on the road.
With over 100 destinations available now and more to come, Nokia
Maps and Lonely Planet have many of the world’s most popular tourist locations covered. The Lonely Planet guides will help travellers find great places to eat, shop, drink and sleep, as well as providing information on each destination.
Maximilian Schierstadt, head of media partnerships at Nokia context based services, stated: “Lonely Planet is a well known brand amongst travellers and stands for adventure and editorial independence. We are very excited to offer their expert local recommendations and itineraries to our Nokia Maps consumers, which will allow Nokia to continue to innovate and enable compelling location aware experiences.”
The downloads cost £5.99. They can be found in Nokia Maps in the Guides section of the Extras menu. Nokia Maps 2.0 uses vector maps provided by Navteq and TeleAtlas and now has maps covering over 200 countries, with over 70 of them navigable.
