Thanks for the suggestion, but I cant turn it off. My phone restarts within a second of me running Ovi Maps 3.04. Thats not enough time to turn off wifi positioning... :(

The wifi positioning in Maps appears as installed as a separate component in the list of installed application. Maybe if I uninstall that particular part and run Maps......

Do not start OVI Maps. Go to Settings -> Phone settings -> App. settings -> Positioning -> Positioning settings

There you can uncheck wifi positioning.

Man, it seems everybody's having issues with Maps 3.04 (and 3.03). I'll try it, I guess, on my NAM E66, but now I've set my expectations low.

Given that Qype doesn't include the U.S., is this download even worth trouble?

Quote: Nokia are collecting their own data about WiFi hotspots, rather than licensing a third party database. With Ovi Maps' large installed base there's clearly scope to collect such data quickly, although they do say that they will not collection such information without a user's permission. /Quote

How can we give permission to collect Wifi data? Because in my Country (Switzerland) Nokia have not a good Database. So i can collect data for next release of ovi maps.

Thanks Tenoce, works now. For some reason, the initial positioning after the update took a hell lot of time. It seemed quicker with 3.03.

I also had the reboot on startup, nicely cured by unchecking WiFi positioning (thanks for that would never have guessed it).

My first reaction was how on earth could Nokia release an application with such a fundamental, and widely reported, bug. But I wonder if it is firmware related ? The installation makes a lot of fuss that you have to update your phone before installing this version but like many people my 5800 is still stuck on V40 and cannot access V50. Have Nokia assumed the very latest firmware and forgotten that many people don't get it for months after release ?

3.04 (or 3.4) has been out for more than just a few weeks. I had installed it on my 5230, and then when I upgraded to the v20 firmware it was included in that.

Not had any problems with it whatsoever.

When I upgraded to v20 (5230) a few weeks ago , Ovi maps 3.03 was instead installed at the D: drive , freeing a lot of precious C: drive space. Now I installed this 3.04 and it is installed in C Drive instead making it come down to 37MB from 52MB :( That's a lot of space I lost.

Ovi Maps 3.4 works just fine on my Nokia N97-3. Perhaps prior to installing the new update, you all should first uninstall "Nokia Maps" and "Ovi Maps" in the application manager.

I dont know why, but for some reason 3.04 seems a bit slower than 3.03. In 3.03, if I was in a building and GPS was not reachable, my tentative position using network positioning would be fairly quick. Now it takes lot of time.

I have my doubts that this release has been tested properly.

while Ovi maps is great, Nokia really are a fail when it comes to firmware updates for phones. Sim free phones are fine but carrier controlled are a mess which lets be honest most people get phones on contract, or at least the more expensive phones.

If carriers dont let Nokia release the firmware to the phones, how is it Nokia's fault?
