Talking Maps Ver 2.0 A spot of bother.....

Afternoon Guys,

My situation is this, I have a Classic N95 which came preloaded with Maps 1.0. I upgraded to Maps 2.0, had my free trial and decided that it wasn't worth paying for however it was useful for a few other things like positioning and working out routes and general incar entertainment lol

I decide to use it from home to work the other day and as you know you have a red dot which is your current position and if you don't put a destination in, it is quite interesting to look at. (Sad I know lol )

I was driving along when suddenly the Map stopped!!. If I zoom out, then it picks up the major routes etc but if I try to zoon to street level, where you get the street names etc I just get a light green screen and the red dot!?! I have no idea why. In my App manager, it shows Nokia maps as "not installed". I have re installed it 3 times, once to my memory card and twice to the phone but still no joy.

Is this just the way the "free" Maps 2.0 works or is my phone bolloxed

Cheers

Mikey

My guess is that you didn't preload the maps data to your memory card on the computer, and was downloading them over the air as you were moving around?

The green screen probably just means that Maps doesn't have the data for those tiles at the time and was still trying to download them - and your 3G connection perhaps was being unreliable.

Oh, and it's normal that you don't see Maps in App Manager - only applications you can remove are listed in there.
