Lonely Planet guides now on Nokia Maps


Nokia has teamed up with Lonely Planet Publications to distribute its content via Nokia Maps in an effort to help travellers around the world.

Travellers can purchase and download city guides from more than 100 destinations.

The Lonely Planet guides will help travellers find places to eat, shop, drink and sleep, as well as providing information on each destination.

Nokia head of media partnerships and context-based services Maximilian Schierstadt said: "Lonely Planet is a well known brand among travellers and stands for adventure and editorial independence.

"We are very excited to offer its expert local recommendations and itineraries to our Nokia Maps consumers, which allows Nokia to continue to innovate and enable compelling location-aware experiences."

Lonely Planet Publications chief Stephen Palmer said: "This is a genuinely transformational deal, which makes Lonely Planet content available regardless of time or place.

"It will help with all those questions which travellers frequently have on the road. Together with Nokia, we will help more travellers connect profoundly with their world, every day."

Downloads cost £5.99 and can be found in Nokia Maps in the ‘Guides’ section of the ‘Extras’ menu.
