Nokia updates its offline Maps Suite for Symbian - read the full textNokia is holding strong to its commitment to devices running on the older Symbian mobile OS by updating its Maps Suite to reflect the most recent road updates and locations. New maps will have to be "cleaned" before the older ones are installed, a process which takes 5-10 minutes depending...

When I click on maps in my PC suite it directs me to here.com where I cannot find the maps downloader.
Can anyone put here the link to those downloads?

Though I know that Symbian is dead and no more new Symbian phones? Still waiting for 5.5" Symbian phone! Nokia, please make it possible! You have spent a lot of resources for the development of Symbian into Belle. Now why should you waste all the investment without reaping the harvest!

How can something flourish when it was born-a-paralyzed?
Windows phone os is still alive today just because of one reason. Consumers who want to buy a good phone from nokia are but forced to use Windows os.If you want proof just check the market share of Wp running phones. Also everyone should understand a fact: Apple's domination is only in iOS where it is the sole player. Samsung for sure beats every other brand in android, But still when it comes to facing nokia,in WP os, we all know who the real winner is. A brands strength must be assessed by its performance in a competitive market. And since nokia manage to beat every other brand in its playground, It is the real winner.

symbian & Elop who is the failure...?
Nokia should have draw more plans for symbian about how hardware manufactures will use symbian os and influence third party programmers.... There is nothing wrong with symbian os...by the way I still play pandemonium on my e71.. Phone without GPU but still plays HD games.. Symbian Nooo quadcore is needed.

> In reply to Asker @ 2013-07-19 14:44 from n{0{ - click to readIve used both google navigation and nokia drive for a road trip in the US:
1)offline availability gives nokia a big edge for places outside big citites.
2)google maps better when it comes to something like looking for a restaurant to eat nearby
3)Most importantly, google navigation ignores you completely on freeways, while nokia maps tells you to ignore each exit (avoids confusion)
4) The road is displayed better on nokia maps, but searching for something on the go is harder

just my 2 cents

the symbian is the best os can run and multitasking in such low hardware but the worst part and it make it let say dumped is the third developers support,the language of symbin really hard to programmed and nokia didnt support developers or make symbian easy to programmed

Agreed that Nokia should never have killed Symbian. Years of development to make the OS as advanced and mature as it is now are all put to waste. It should've been relegated to the midrange in place of the S40. But it would be such a shame if the midrange Nokia phones are more powerful than the highend Lumias. So I think it's all politics. Elop killed Symbian so that Windows Phone will have a chance to flourish.

Just FYI, for OTA updates, some maps will be "too big" to update with WiFi. It's best to just update via USB connection.
