I am so lost with this process of maploader stuff.
Firstly, I can't seem to find a site to download the Nokia map loader
, or the correct version, on to my PC (using windows 7). And the one from the nokia site, version1.1, is not working! Please help!
Thereafter is one supposed to use it via Ovi Maps, or by itself and then through the phone?
I am no wizz at this, clearly!
hong kong pepole, 14 Sep 2010please update the map version.....th emap is 200-300 meter away to the real location!
Thanks!If you are having a limited data plan, I suggest you to switch to use MAEP. You may also want to change the Location server from "supl.nokia.com" to "supl.google.com"; it should help to lock GPS faster.
My experience on OVI SUITE is a total disappointment.
please update the map version.....th emap is 200-300 meter away to the real location!
I think the maps work on Nokia N900 but the voice guidance is only designed to work on smart phones using Symbian OS... Hopefully this should work soon for Maemo too.
I had the same issues loading maps using Map Loader. Paul's fix did not work for me as you may need root directory access to make the name change work. But I did fix the problem another way.
Here is a link to the fix I identified:
I also published a fix on the 26th of May as updating your N900 to PR1.2 once again breaks the Map Loader. My fix for that can be found at:
I had problems trying to get the map loader to recoginise my N900. Tried it in PC Suite and HD modes but no joy. In the end I turned off the phone and connected it again and finally it was recognised and is now downloading. Hope this helps others that are having the same problem.
I have downloded maps on my N900, but I am still not able to use voice guided system, anybody please help!!!
Thank you Paul.
heres the instructions to get Nokia Map Loader to work with the N900
if, like me, you have trouble getting the Map Loader to recognise your N900 on both WinXP and Win7, then try this fix:
- Contary to what the Nokia web site says, connect the N900 in PC Suite mode
- before you do that though, open up X Terminal and type this command:
cp /home/user/MyDocs/.qf /home/user/MyDocs/qf
Now try running the Map Loader and it should recognise the N900.
Well i have just checked with Nokia Direct, and the have informed me that it is NOT available for the N900, so it seems GSMARENA are wrong !!!!
i tried it several times it wont work if u put it using mass storage the program will ask you to put in pc suite mode
and if u put it in pc suite mode it wont work at all
so whats the solution here?
Anyone else in the uk having trouble getting the free navigation on there N900???
