New Nokia Maps, plus personalised mapping using Ovi

Today at Nokia World 2008, Nokia has released the latest version of Nokia Maps, as well as a full personalized 'online mapping experience' on Ovi. The combination of Nokia Maps plus Ovi is claimed to be "the first free service that allows people to pre-plan a journey at home and synchronize with their phone, giving access to pre-planned routes and favourite destinations while on the move." Nokia Maps has also been updated to include higher resolution aerial images, 3D landmarks for 216 cities across the world and terrain maps.

Read on in the full article.

At least it installs .. but consistently gives System Error ! on mine

- Additionally .. I couldn't downgrade to Nokia Maps 2.x .. so I'm without Nokia Maps on that phone - since the N85 has no firmware you can flash it with I strongly advise against trying this if you need Maps and only have one phone.

I've notified Nokia of this issue - but perhaps Steve, Rafe and Ewan could have a word in Oli's ear .. hey mate the N97 is lovely but there are poor N85 users out there without the means to fix their phones ..

Windows only?

Ovi Maps requires plug-in installation (you need to download an run setup.exe), is much slower than Google Maps and seems to be Windows only.

N95

Will Maps 3.0 work on an N95 (RM-159) with updated firmware?

Heh. This installation will fuck your device up. I installed Nokia Maps 3.0. When clicking its icon, nothing happens (only S60 FP mark keeps spinning for the while).

And icon is named Smart2go. You cannot uninstall this. So I am without Maps now. Utterly rubbish from Nokia, like Nokia email and Vine.

I am using N85.

Same for me, I've tried downgrading back to 2.0 but that don't work either, also, Map Loader only displays voices to download to the device, no maps!?!?

I was going to install this version of maps, I'm guilty of being an early adopter in the past - I think I'll give this a wide berth for the time being.

The plugin works for me with both Firefox 3 and IE7, but doesn't really seem to do much at the moment: just gives you a map.
