Nokia Ovi Maps service could get users where they want to go

Consumers who want to ensure that they know where they are going could wish to consider mobile recycling to upgrade to a Nokia handset with Ovi Maps.

The mobile manufacturer has revealed that it now plans to integrate the programme into the dashboard of vehicles, Engadget has revealed.

As part of a joint venture with dashboard system manufacturer Alpine, the Nokia smartphone app could be viewed on a built-in LCD display at least twice the size of that seen on the handset.

Users could also integrate other aspects of their handset, with their vehicle including music from the phone, traffic alerts, handsfree voice conversations and a range of new apps.

It is not yet clear when the system will be released but according to Alpine, Terminal Mode - as it has been dubbed - is "close to release".

Nokia revealed earlier this week (March 3rd) that it has launched a new Skype application for a range of its mobile phones running the latest version of Symbian.
