Nokia Maps just got updated and now comes with Groupon Now! geo-located deals. Nokia says that it spent the past few months working with Groupon on this integration to feature deals that can be bought and use on the same day (if not “right away”) – which makes perfect sense if you’re on a trip in another city.
Obviously, even if you’re in your home town, the instant gratification may persuade you to use the service. It simply works by making Groupon deals appear while browsing a map. They have a distinctive “G” icon on each location icon. When you want to purchase a deal, Nokia Maps sends you to the Groupon Mobile site. Note that this is limited to the USA at the moment.
On a separate topic, Nokia also added the ability to create waypoints in-between two destinations, in case you want to plan a fun field trip. This Nokia Map update is versioned with 18.104.22.168 and should work on the following phones: Nokia Lumia 610, Nokia Lumia 710, Nokia Lumia 800 and the Nokia Lumia 900 [Official Nokia blog post]
