There have been over 1.4 million downloads since the new Nokia Ovi Maps navigation application was launched, with over a million downloads in the first week.
Anssi Vanjoki, Executive Vice President of Nokia, said "We’re averaging a download a second, 24 hours a day. The number of people now using their Nokia for navigation, and as a result looking for more location-aware software, is growing faster than even we predicted."
Ovi Maps covers more than 180 countries with car and pedestrian navigation for 74 countries, in 46 languages, and traffic information for more than 10 countries. The top five countries downloading the new version of Ovi Maps are China, Italy, the UK, Germany and Spain – and the five most-used Nokia devices are the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia N97 mini, Nokia N97, Nokia 5230 and Nokia E72.
