so Nokia - SORT THIS OUT!
Installed without a hitch and works like a charm on my unlocked N95.

Have you a direct link, as my Google-fu seems to have deserted me tonight!, and for the love of god I cannot install on my 6220c

All I get is the warning about not being compatible, then an error "unable to install. No access"

Yea, 7.4MB. I have cleared down my phone's c: partition, and have approx 34MB free on it.

if you choose any phone there is a file called Setup_Nokia_Maps_Updater_1.0.12.exe which says it will do the update to 3.0, but does not say if it is 3.0.3

I'm assuming this is why the N86 only got the "Maintenance Upgrade" recently with a hint at something more full-featured to come. All I can say is it better take up less than the current 6mb or be able to be installed on the card. Hopefully if it's in the firmware itself it won't bloat out the c: drive so much.

It was the smartest move Nokia could make and I'm glad they've done it. Now lets get support for all the phones that CAN support it. I hope they're working on getting Ovi Maps on Maemo up to scratch too as I want to switch over to the next Maemo device.

Well I managed to get the application installed on my 6220 classic by removing the existing maps app, and downloading the E72 version to my Pc, which is maps_installer_3.03wk1_b05_s60_5.0.Nocs.sis and installing via Ovi suite.

I now need to re-download the maps, but the server Ovi suite uses seems to be getting hit hard as it just keeps reporting that the maps server is unavailable.

Bollocks. Let's examine. Nokia own Navteq outright - all their data and so on. Google offer navigation in the same way as search. As a service to get money back through increased advertising revenue. Apple on the other hand don't own any map data, or run an advertising business. So they would have to pay someone for the maps - Nokia/Navteq are hardly going to co-operate so they would be at the mercy of TeleAtlas. They would literally be haemorrhaging cash. In order to increase what? Sales volume's? This is not Apple's business model, they operate a profit based business.

I went to http://maps.ovi.com/ and from there was redirected to http://europe.nokia.com/support/prod...load#/default/ where I selected "N95" from a menu.

As noted, Nokia/Navteq and Google can leverage navigation for their other revenue models. However, in Nokia's case, they have switched navigation to a loss leader. They are giving it away hoping to recover it with hardware sales.

That said, basic full-featured navigation applications aren't that expensive. CoPilot sells country-specific packages for about $50 here. Apple could certainly make US-specific navigation available in US iPhones, and EU-specific navigation available in EU iPhones at a comparatively low cost. Global navigation is likely to be particularly appealing only to a small group. I don't care, for instance, that my phone doesn't have navigation support for Africa, for instance, since I don't plan to go there.

i just dont believe that nobody uses MMS. my family uses it. my dad loves sending pics of the little kids and whatnot. friends of mine use it. i use it. i think there are a lot more people in the world using MMS than people let on around here.
