FREE OVI Maps Navigation

21 01 2010

First with the news was Symbian-Guru that the announcement today by Nokia will bring FREE OVI Maps Navigation for selected Nokia devices only? Available for 10 of Nokia’s GPS-equipped devices: the Nokia N97 Mini, Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition, Nokia E52, Nokia E55, Nokia E72, Nokia 5230, Nokia 6710 Navigator, Nokia 6730 classic and Nokia X6.

Noticed no normal Nokia N97, this wont go down well with the already very unhappy N97 users, but I’ve been informed by Nokia Conversations that the N97 is coming soon along with other handsets. Speculation on twitter is its also coming to the N900 (whoop whoop!).

The Nokia Event kicked off at 09:45hrs GMT http://events.nokia.com/ovimaps/index.html

Got it working on the N97 normal !!! removed nokia maps and ovi maps from app manager and then manual install using nokia suite. I think this is all because of the appalling C memory management of the original N97

Think there is an optimised version coming for the bog standard or sup standard N97 in a new Firware update v21 on the 28th Jan 2010

Hmmm haven’t noticed the difference of the new Nokia Ovi Maps and Nokia Ovi Maps 3.0… the new one downloads maps from the internet, so they are not compatible…

Hello

Is there any sound in OVI map in n900.

I did use a couple of time but till now I haven’t found any way how to start the sound.

If yes please let me know how to use sound.

Also do I need internet for that all the time or not?

It actually came out to the N97, but it decides to install itself on the C:.. It takes up 9MB and like another 2MB for a location sharing agent…

WHAT THE H***?!!? I’m let with 2MB of memory and i swear I have nothing but messaging and maps installed on the C: with all the V2 and memory reorganizer updated previously…
