Consumers can stay connected with a whole new layer of information to share and receive, including mapped locations, Geo-tagged photos or videos, and points of interest to show to friends across all major social networks so they can stay in contact via maps or satellite images.

nanonavi runs on all the major mobile smart phones including Nokia, Sony-Ericsson, Samsung, and Windows Mobile. nanonavi is currently free for download on Facebook, MySpace, BeBo, Hi5, and Orkut. The product also differentiates itself by allowing people to access their contacts across their social networks, something unavailable in today’s market.
