Nokia outs slick Maps 3D with nav and share capability

Nokia unveiled its Nokia Maps 3D back in April of this year and they were certainly cool. The service reminded me more than a little of Google Earth. Nokia has announced some really cool new features. One of the new features is the ability for the user to search for local attractions, restaurants, and shops. That means you can see the shop you want to visit and then get directions how to get there.

The directions are given on maps with photorealistic views of the locations you are looking for. You do have to install a plug-in to get the 3D maps. After installing that plug-in, you can enter addresses in the search field as well as business names and points of interest you want to see. It will then find the thing you are looking for and put it on the screen for you to check out.

The route planning is in 3D and then the routes can be shared with friends via, email, Facebook, and Twitter. The maps allow you to get directions for walking or driving. Those are nice updates to Nokia Maps 3D and you can watch the video to see more details.
