Ovi Maps 3.0


This is when it is important to have a Nokia E63 and above. The new Nokia Maps, now called Ovi Maps 3.0 is available only to the following devices:
  • S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1 (E63, E66, E71, E90 Communicator, N81, N81 8GB, N82, N95, N95 8GB)
  • S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2 (E55, E75, N78, N79, N85, N86 8MP, N96, 5320 XpressMusic, 5630 XpressMusic, 5730 XpressMusic, 6210 Navigator, 6220 Classic, 6650, 6710 Navigator, 6720 Classic)
  • S60 5th Edition (5800 XpressMusic & N97)
So have you tried Ovi Maps? what are your thoughts? I'm still at the installation stage.

  1. I can't get Ovi Maps to install on my E63, says device not supported :(. And Maps pre-installed on my phone only uses data packet connection that costs a bunch for those of us used to free wi-fi connections. Any leads on installing it?

  2. OK, sorry for earlier comment. Figured it out, installed it, saved the relevant map info for the states I eed.

    One suggestion for users who don't need GPS but would like Maps data for map viewing, passive route planning etc: device will constantly ask for bluetooth GPS device, very annoying! Way to overcome this is to go to GPS (not maps), and then de-select bluetooth as a means to a GPS device. Works as a charm!

  4. i've been having trouble with my maps application ever since i bought my unit a week ago.. it seems to load about 18% and then it kinda hangs....

    i called up the nokia centre and apparently this function is only avaiable with an external GPS unit. is this true? please let me know. =)

    thanks.

  8. @Swami: go to the Ovi Store (you'll need an internet connection) then download Ovi Mapss ;)

    @Anymous: Try again but i think you'll have to download it on your mobile phone from your mobile phone...

  10. I'm very interested to know about this compatibility issue with the e63 and the ovi maps offer... so many are saying that it doesn't work(is this just a phone firmware issue?). and is the e63 not GPS enabled?? i thought it was... or does that only start from thee e71.

  11. Hello,

    could you please post a link to the maps that are compatible for the E63? When I go on the Nokia website: http://europe.nokia.com/support/product-support/maps-support/compatibility-and-download?intc=ncomsup-fw-ilc-bdy-con-na-ncomexpserveu-g0-20-visitmapssupport_0x0

    I can't find a map for the E63, neither do I find one in the Ovi store??

    Thanks!

  12. @above

    you can find Maps 3.01 for E63 here : http://static.s2g.gate5.de/nokiamaps-client/nokia_maps_3.01_09wk44_b01_s60_3.1_lm_rom.sis

    Unfortunately, it seems that the newer version of Nokia Maps are not supported by E63. Which makes me wonder if the E63 will remain a useful GPS device in the future too, in case nokia decides to launch a new generation of Maps and junks generation 3.xx altogether.

    Your take on the compatibility issue guys? The E63 is a wonderful phone being forcibly made redundant by Nokia.

    there is a problem in this app.
    You can easily install this app but once it's installed ,it can't be removed.
