    yes. Ovi maps is actually much much better than most other maps.

    1. offline (no need to connect to internet, atleast on nokia devices)
    2. much more detailed (atleast in India)
    3. navigation is top notch

    ^^ For Nokia Users it works even on offline but I guess Andriod users need to be online.
