Finally, those of us with GPS enabled phones in Nigeria can now at least put them to use, albeit in a limited way.
In the past, most navigation applications that run on GPS enabled devices didn’t come with support for Nigeria and that included the widely popular Google maps. But that has changed now with the release of the latest version (22.214.171.124) of Google Maps for Symbian s60 devices.
Google maps loaded the map of Lagos when I launched it and it pinpointed my location.
Features like getting direction from your current location to a new location are currently not working, but we can expect that with further updates of the software more and more features will have support for Nigeria.
In case you are itching to see your street on your phone, move over to m.google.com on your s60 browser to download the software. And don’t forget to give us feedback of your experiences and impressions.
