Off to Moscow? Don?t forget your Nokia

With Chelsea and Manchester United set to battle it out for European Glory this Wednesday, an estimated 60,000 fans are expected to travel to the Russian capital. With the majority of signposts in Moscow written in the Russian Cyrillic alphabet, Nokia is hoping to help travelling fans navigate themselves around the city by making a mobile map of Moscow available for download.


The map is available for free on all Nokia GPS-enabled handsets, such as the popular Nokia N95. The map which can be downloaded from the phones Nokia Maps application, will provide a street-by-street guide with visual turn-by-turn pedestrian navigation. Using the handsets built-in compass, users can keep abreast of what direction they are going, thus making it to the ground in time for kick off, and they can also geo-tag their hotel so that they can easily find their way home.


Nokia recently announced that they expect half of their handsets to sport sat nav facilities by 2010.
