Nokia announced its Ovi Maps navigation service a while back and it ships pre-installed on some new Nokia handsets. The service takes the Ovi Maps, turns it into a navigation service along the lines of standalone GPS devices, and offers it at no cost for Nokia users.

The only catch to the free maps service is that only specific Nokia handsets are compatible with it right now. However, Nokia has said that it is working hard to make the service available on more Nokia handsets.

Nokia announced this week that the Ovi Maps with Navigation application was downloaded over a million times in one week. Right now Ovi Maps covers more than 180 countries with car and pedestrian navigation capability. The app also offers access to Lonely Planet and Michelin guides.
