E90 nokia maps 2.0 beta internal screen problems

Have tried searching forum but haven't found anything.
How do you zoom in and out reliably using the internal screen? The screen shows the * and # to zoom but this never works for the # but sometimes does for the * but seems to end up putting 8s in the search line most of the time. The other strange one is the inverted "selection keys". The keys work as they should but the labels are inverted. For example on start up Exit is at top of screen and Options at bottom but pressing the top selection key gives the options and pressing the bottom selection key gives the exit option.
If this has been answered earlier please let me have the link.

Thanks, did you discover the keys the hard way or is there somewhere that tells you?
The funny I get is that I can zoom in to a high zoom level but after about a second it drops back and I cannot zoom up anymore except by zooming out and then zooming in but it always drops back after about a second.

Have you tried the new version of Maps 2?

The only problem that I found there is that the software freezes the phone if there is no GPS signal...

Yes.
Zoom in still not working properly, ie sometimes zooms in a long way but then backs out and you cannot zoom in.

Thats quite possibly a Garmin problem. Install garmin version .80 and see if the zoom issue with nokia maps 2 still happens. Sorted mine out.

That was a bug in the previous version of the beta. The latest has that fixed.

Please explain what Garmin has got to do with Nokia Maps.

Garmin had a problem where it affected the # key, which in turn affected SMS and the zoom out function on nokia maps.

Sounds odd, but this was definatly the case. I had that problem, updated Garmin to .80, and I no longer have the zoom issue.

As for the postcode search, this was a known problem but was fixed - supposedly - in the last release. It fixed it for me.

Just checking the version of maps Im running, and its

V2.0 wk18 b03

I think anyway. Its not visable in the help, or about sections.

The sis I have is 2.0_1803_3.1

Thanks for reply.
I have same version and it does not do full postcode search in Cheltenham.
In Surrey it doesn't work at all on postcode I tried, but does on a different 4 character code. Same in Bath only 4 characters.
Still confused as to how installing a Garmin app will help my E90 running Nokia maps with internal gps.

No, thats only if you already have Garmin. Garmin has a bug which affects the # key, as I said. However if you dont have Garmin, then I dont know whats causing the zoom problem.

Or the postcode problem for that matter, everyone I know had it has reported it fixed with thise new version of maps.

Did you upgrade, or install the new version from fresh?

If you did an upgrade, Id be tempted to uninstall, and delete maps from your memory (the cities folder).

Download the latest sis file from nokia labs, and install anew. Thats the only thing I can think of.

If that doesnt work, leave nokia feedback.

Have discovered full postcode search is only available if online. I run Maps offline because I want something that will work out of gsm coverage. Wayfinder (for me) works much better than Maps but needs GSM coverage.

If anyone knows if you can get full postcode search offline would appreciate knowing. Possibly Nokia using very old maps.
