honest discussion on Ovi Maps vs Google Maps...

If I understand your problem correctly, what you need to do is run run OVI maps once, press the update button and download a few Kilobytes of map data by pressing Add new maps. Then exit ovi maps and then install full map/s using ovi suite.
Once that's done you should be good to go.
If that didn't solve your problem, could you post back either here or at the Nokia support discussions web site with more specific details of your problem?

I didnt care and just swapped anyway to mtn from my voda contract. Did that cos everyone has my mtn number at work and i have my work emails running on this phone cos the email client is better than my 5800xm. Love this phone but just a piece of advice. If you gonna swap sims to another sp, before doing so test everything solidly for the 1st 7 days. If alls good, then swap. I picked up glitches in my 1st 2 devices and had them replaced with no hassles. Got mine from nashua mobile. Just test everything like gps, hdmi, fm transmitter, usb otg etc.
can anyone help me get the navigation working on my N8
it went AWOL after i downloaded Ovi maps and i cannot get it back on. Tearing my hair out !! PLEASE !!

My post yesterday exposed ZEE as a liar. Nokia do not relaese anonymously. Why do would they release sensitive information to you. Nokia do not hint at relaese dates, at they have to co-ordinate logistics. So if it is from a person you have 4 elements and these are named person, date, information and location. ie who when where & info. So if you do not get all 4 its not from Nokia. selling Newpaper getting the scoop first is why the world is littered with people who claim to know information first.
everything you Zee adkane is made up. the sad part is
i spent time on the phone to get this. I already knew
your just bogus. you introduce element not in discussion . you lack the capacity for reasoned debate
asay a day and come back to this. what if any information have you posted that has been correct. all made up THE WORLD IS WATCHING. THE ONLY THING NOKIA KNOW ABOUT YOU IS YOUR GUARENTEE CARD. SEE IT HERE IF YOU CAN'T REPLY ATTACK MAKE IT PERSONAL.
so i guess you are now at the MWC NO
in short the idea that nokia even know or care about these people is laughable. any future post ask them for a source. even you can't put me off owing a N8
Believe me people there is a problem with this phone, it always hang-up.
i need to know how can i know if N8 is from the second batch or from the first one?

I bought new n8 from Mobile Super Market ludhiana,India and after 10 days it started restarting itself agin and again and the phone was dead.. then i went to nokia care centre (model town extension,near krishna mandir, Ludhiana) and said that your phone is dead it will be replaced by new one. after 10 days they gave me replaced handset saying that this is new one.But this one is more worse than my previous. no ovi services are working ..no navigation....no store....no music. then I called main nokia care centre delhi. by giving them emei no. i came to know that this new replaced n8 was actually another customer's repaired hanset.customer care centre of ludhiana has cheated me(CHEATERS).they gave me a defected repaired set whereas my original set was repaired by nokia head quarter centre and sent back.Ludhiana care centre swaped n8 clearverly which is not in the knowledge of nokia main head quarter. I have complainted nokia main centre today and is waiting result. PLEASE HELP HOW CAN I GET A NEW N8 .

Anonymous, 14 Jan 2011Im kinda late on this one. But before you upgrade your map version check to see if yours is on... moreI live in Trinidad and the same thing happened to me when I updated Ovi Maps. No problem, I changed the settings to allow maps to access the internet and my maps of the Caribbean was downloaded automatically. If you don't have a data sim or wifi at home go to a Rituals and use their free wifi.
On a different note I use Super to reduce the file size of recorded video to about 1/3 of the original size. This results in a 10 percent loss in video quality (I estimate). Does anyone have any idea how to compress video with minimal quality loss as the N8 uses over 1GB of storage per hour of recording.
