    According to Reuters, Nokia is planning on offering free GPS navigation to its smartphones worldwide. This may be due to Google offering free navigation service to their Android OS several months ago. This doesn't look good for Garmin and TomTom.

    Nokia 5800 Navigation and the 2700 Navigation Edition already have the free GPS navigation. The new version of Ovi Maps will have high end walk and drive navigation, free, and will provide voice guidance that is turn-by-turn for 74 countries and 46 languages with traffic info for 10 countries. It will bring maps that are very detailed for 180 countries.

    You can go to Ovi Maps by visiting the official website.

    Below are the supported phones for Ovi Maps.

    * Nokia X6
    * Nokia N97 Mini
    * Nokia E72
    * Nokia E55
    * Nokia E52
    * Nokia 6730 classic
    * Nokia 6710 Navigator
    * Nokia 5800 XpressMusic
    * Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition
    * Nokia 5230

    N97 will get the Ovi Maps 3.0.3 on Jan. 28. N900 will more than likely not get the free navigation system. Nokia smartphones should be preinstalled with the Ovi Maps this March.
