map24mobile.jpgMap24 Mobile, which launched in September, has now evolved into version 2.0 and offers greater geographical coverage, more languages, and a more intuitive user interface.

Firstly, the range of locations has expanded, with maps now covering North and South America, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand, in addition to Europe. Language support includes English, German, French, Arabic, Czech, Finnish and Icelandic with more languages to follow shortly.

Map24 Mobile includes 3D representations of maps, points of interest, detailed road mapping and city maps.

Registered users of the free My Map24 service can also load their personal online address book onto their mobiles, which can then be used to calculate routes. Route calculation is performed on the Map24 server, ensuring up-to-date results.

Map24 Mobile runs on Pocket PCs and many multimedia smartphones. The only requirement for access to the latest Map24 data is a mobile internet connection.
