Nokia’s Ovi Maps might have some way to go in terms of challenging the popularity of Google Maps, but Nokia has announced some new features to the service at Nokia World which should help it further compete. The improved Ovi Maps will offer live traffic flow information, a new drive assist mode, public transportation maps, redesigned places page, social check-ins. Check-ins will allow you to broadcast your location via SMS or to your social network of choice. You can check out a video showcasing the new check-in feature after the jump.
