Go figure, 3.0 is compatible with FP2 phones except for N96, they are working to rectify the situation however as it stands, flagship gets a shaft....what do you say ?

Installed and working fine, still not a patch on TomTom tho!


Where did you get your info that it's not compatible?

On beta labs, they recommend not putting on the N96 as it has some 'issues', though they dont say what.

Maps 3.0Beta works with all Nokia devices based on S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2 except N96, where we have still known compatibility issues. S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1 support coming soon.

MapsBeta on Ovi works on IE6 (Windows XP), IE7, Firefox 2 and Firefox 3 (Windows XP or Vista). Give feedback

so yes it may work with issues

Interesting.

45 mile drive home for me - I'll use Maps and let the forum know if I spot anything.

technically yes, however because it has not been released and we might wait for another six months or so before it actually hits the streets, the N96 still remains a flagship at least on the 'street, hands on' level ;)

installed ok .. but failed to run .. kept crashing with a System Error! would be interested to know if anyone has got this working on N85.

Now I have no working Nokia Maps program on my N85 .. since I can't do a firmware flash to fix it.. :(

I have had nothing but problems with it .. and I hate OVI with a passion ..
No N85 support .. it doesn't know my time-zone .. it wrecked a healthy installation of PC Suite.

FFS Nokia hurry up with a damn Firmware for the N85 so I can at least flash it back to square one. :mad:

yeah ovi does not work for me, its a headache, but i downloaded the maps it was all good for a moment, no really big changes and then it crashed with a passion, i thought that situation was hopeless but with hard reset restored my baby back to life....will take a step back from maps for a moment

Like I said, i'd try driving with it for 45 miles last night. Failed miserably. Phone crashed, full reboot - and maps hasn't been stable or usable since.

Interestingly enough, it was working in the office before I started driving home. I had some great 3d pictures of the centre of Manchester (UK).


Re: Seki.

Just re-install nokia maps 2.0 - it appears to remove the beta.

Maps 2.0 is installed but I still have the Smart2Go label on the app and the generic # icon .. instead of the Maps label and the globe icon.

Are you suggesting I re-reinstall 2.0 ?? :)

Sorry Seki, I was wrong.

The reinstall of v2.00 maps does not fix the problem.

I've tried reflashing my f/w - that didn't solve it either.

Anyone any bright ideas?

didn't need to backup or restore a thing .. in this "crossgrade" Of course I took a backup as a matter of course but I didn't need it.

I did need to run the FW updater twice though...

first time gave me the phone back with 15mins left .. it was hung .. (I left it for 4 hours!) .. so I killed it .. restarted the process again. :)

Hi , I had the same problem installing maps 3.0 to N96 (RM247 11.101) The PC says it's okay but I fail to start the application it says "system error" while loading. It is really annoying, what shall I do now? I also reported the bud to Nokia via Ovi, I excited about the answer.

Open File manager on the phone ..
delete the cities folder from the card
delete the qf file from the card
install http://nds1.nokia.com/files/support/global/phones/software/Nokia_Maps_2.0_4503_3.2_u.sis
grab any maps you need using the map loader

Don't touch Maps 3.0 again until its released for the N96 / N85 properly :)
