TripAdvisor has struck a deal with Nokia to bring content and user generated content functions to its Ovi Maps navigation app.
The TripAdvisor database of hotels, eateries and tourist hotspots is compiled by 15 million users across the globe who contribute reviews as well as hints to help other tourists make the most out of their stay.
Under the terms of the deal, this content will be incorporated into the Ovi Maps app, allowing users to find hotels and check out independent opinions before they commit to booking a break.
Nokia expects to get the updated Ovi Maps app out worldwide in a month's time.
Rupert Englander of Nokia said: "We want to make booking flights, accommodation and sharing your travel experiences as familiar as using your mobile for navigation.
"We believe that combining the number one travel recommendation site with the best online maps service will do just that."
Other services associated with Ovi Maps include Lonely Planet and Time Out - all of which are free of charge to anyone with a compatible Nokia smartphone.
