Nokia has already enjoyed a successful uptake of its Ovi Maps service since making it available to users of its handsets as a free downloadable app.
However, the next stage of development could prove to be even more exciting for consumers who could soon integrate the programme into the dashboard of their vehicle.
Dashboard system manufacturer Alpine has suggested to Engadget that a joint venture between itself and the mobile manufacturer could allow for directions and other compatible material to be viewed on an LCD screen which is built-in to the dashboard.
This, as well as the potential to combine the systems for other purposes, such as listening to music, holding hands-free conversations and receiving traffic alerts, could excite consumers.
Earlier this week Nokia announced that a new Skype application – compatible with a range of phones – was available to download for free.
