Espoo, Finland -- Nokia and Wayfinder Systems today announced the availability of the Nokia 6630 Navigation Pack, a compact smartphone-based package that enables people to find their way and explore locations while on the move. The navigation pack consists of a Nokia 6630 smartphone, a Nokia Wireless GPS Module and the Wayfinder Navigator(TM) application.

"Location based services are among the top consumer choices for new mobile applications," said Kirsi Kokko, Director, Smartphone and Business Solutions, Multimedia, Nokia. "With the Nokia 6630 Navigation Pack, we wanted to address this demand with a highly advanced, portable package combining the benefits of a smartphone and navigation. When not using navigation based services, people can enjoy the same device for productivity purposes, taking pictures or video, surfing the Internet or listening to music." "The Wayfinder Navigator(TM) application on the Nokia 6630 brings the ultimate navigation solution to the consumer," said Jonas Sellergren, VP Product Management, Wayfinder Systems. "The Wayfinder Navigator(TM) in a Nokia smartphone delivers a complete navigation experience that previously has been found primarily built into cars. Wayfinder Navigator(TM) is the perfect travel companion, the ideal tool for people on the move."

The Nokia Navigation Pack puts the world into people's pockets: when connected to the Nokia Wireless GPS Module, users can directly from the Nokia 6630 smartphone see their position and the easiest route to their destination on a digital map, provided by Tele Atlas. Once installed with the automatic settings configuration tool, Wayfinder's extensive map selection (which currently covers Western Europe, the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, and Greece) is ready for use.

The application also guides users with turn-by-turn voice instructions, and allows searching for street addresses, restaurants and other points of interest. Furthermore, locations or points of interest can be shared by forwarding maps via MMS or email. The Nokia 6630 Navigation Pack does not require fixed installations, making it possible for people to use it whenever and wherever they like.

The Wayfinder Navigator(TM) application on the Nokia 6630 smartphone's Reduced Size MultiMediaCard (MMC) offers a 6-month period of navigation including automatic map updates. After the free period, users can extend the service directly from the Nokia 6630 smartphone or via www.MyWayfinder.com. In order to access the Internet and download routes, maps and information from the Wayfinder server, users need a GPRS subscription.

In some markets, the navigation pack will also be available with the Nokia 6670 smartphone. The Nokia 6630 and 6670 Navigation Packs are available in Western Europe, with more areas to follow later on this year.
