Ovi Maps Loader for Nokia N900 now available

Thanks our friends over at MaemoItalia.com we’ve come to know that Nokia has (finally) released a Map loader for Ovi Maps on the Nokia N900.

If you’re a frequent reader, you’d know that one of our minor complaints about GPS on the Nokia N900, was that there was no way to pre-load the Maps into the device.

Well now there is !

Using Nokia Map Loader, you can pre-load your country’s maps into your Nokia N900 using a compatible PC, and save on data transfer costs from having to manually download it on your device.

You can get Maps Loader (27Mb) for the Nokia N900 over on Nokia USA.

Keep in mind, Ovi Maps for Maemo still doesnt have Voice Guidance and a couple features that are on the Symbian version though.

      It worked fine for my N900 Astroche :) Just make sure you start Ovi Maps on your N900 and let it connect to the Internet atleast once, before you try using Map Loader.
      Something about Ovi Maps creating files and what not.

    Classic. They have Windblows and Macintrash versions of the app… but even though the N900 runs Linux itself, there's no desktop Linux version of this map loader app.

    I have only Ubuntu Linux computers, no MS Windows ones. Can I load OVI maps onto the N900 from my Ubuntu Linux PC? If so, how?

    No way that I know of yet Will. So far Maps Loader only works on Windows unfortch.

    First of all let me tell you that your site blog or whatever this is A PIECE OF DOGSHIT just like you lil pooskin faggot.

    You didn’t provide a single fucking link to anything useful. Fuck you scraper site!

    Either provide precise link to the map you saying or fuck yourself. You just provided a link to nokia usa’s website where N900 not even listed BRAVO….
