I should have said it only works online, I assumed you knew that.

Sadly, theres no way to do it. Personally, I think its very stupid.

First is the reason you mentioned, what if you didnt have any coverage. Second, is that not everyone has data plans, and why should you have to search online when its such a small file that could be included with the maps download?

Postcodes are not updated often anyway.

Its not nokia using old maps, its them being silly.

Im thinking another program would suit you, perhaps Garmin or copilot.

Just for clarification, my issue with zoom is only with zoom in. I have never had a problem with zoom out (# or right-shift).
As for alternative to Maps, The Wayfinder alternative Navicore has promise but lacks (vitally) the ability to save routes and the maps aren't as good as Wayfinder.
The offline search is also very slow in Maps.
I agree with the comments about data charges and searching.
Nokia seem to think if you have bought an E90 you want to give them lots more money to use it, guess someone has to pay for the free music.

Navicore is now wayfinder.

They have just released a new version, and tell me they are set to release another possibly this month but with maps included, rather than downloading them as you go.

Im hoping to get a copy and review it when its out.

Otherwise, Id suggest you look at garmin or copilot live 7.

The Navicore product is not Wayfinder. I have both. They are owned by same people though.

It will be an older one then, as navicore was bought by them some time ago. Im not sure when they consolidated brands though. I also have an old version of navicore, really didnt like it.

Looking forward to the new version though.

5 minutes ago they were still different.
The Navicore version suffered same sort of problems as early Maps with internal screen keys/shortcuts not wonderful.
If the new version sorts these problems (and others) then it could be quite good.

The main pain I had with Navicore is that you have to install on an external memory card, ie take it out of phone.

Im sure they still have the old version for sale, and support it. They even still have the navicore webby, but I have been told that the new version is going to be wayfinder (the one with maps also).

Have a look at the new satnavs, you'll find them vastly improved.

The Navicore and Wayfinder products are very different. I dont know how they would make them into one product. Navicore support (has a wayfinder email adress though) haven't responded to my email but they normally take two days to do so.

After very slow exchange of emails with Wayfinder/Navicore they say there will be two products: Wayfinder Navigator and Wayfinder Navigator Online. No dates though.
