Nokia today announced that the latest version of it's Ovi Maps software is available for two E-Series devices, the E71 and E66, bringing turn by turn navigation to the business-focused handsets.

Ovi Maps version 3.0 brought the same functionality to more recent Nokia releases when it launched back in January, releases including the N97 and N97 mini, the 5800 XpressMusic and the 6710 Navigator. As part of this announcement, Nokia has inform us that "these two devices will be the last of our S60 3.1 and older devices to sport this version of Ovi Maps," but reminded us that all new Nokia phones will have turn-by-turn navigation out of the box. New Nokia phones may also have 4-inch capacitive touchscreens, making them a dashboard-mount away from replacing your TomTom or Garmin.
