Ovi Maps: Places
As I use Ovi Maps on 3G, I am beginning to like the program I used to hate from very early on. Today I discovered that the ‘Places’ search actually searches the nearest location for a place being searched for. For example, when I search for ‘Costco’, the search result was a Costco outlet closest to my position.
Clicking the ‘i’ on the search-result reveals more information, which in this case also displayed a phone number that can be called directly by clicking the phone icon.
The integration with the phone app was cool. I wish the microB browser also had a similar feature.
The downside is that, this is all possible only when a data-connection is available. It would be great if Maemo Ovi Maps would support offline Symbian-like searches.
