There are mainly 3 ways of doing it.

The 1st 2 ways require the use of Nokia MapLoader PC software

1 – through card reader
2 – through USB cable

The 3rd way requires the phone to have a data (gpRs / 3G ) connection.

3 – Over the Air

Way 1: Through card reader

** To go by this method, you must run the phone version on Maps software once. This will create the necessary folder structure on the memory card **

1. Download and install Nokia MapLoader PC software

2. Take the memory card out of your mobile device and insert it into a card reader connected to your computer.

3. Run Nokia MapLoader, choose country and download the map.

4. Put the memory card back in the phone, start Maps software, and you are DONE!

Way 2: Through USB Cable

** To go by this method, you must run the phone version on Maps software once. This will create the necessary folder structure on the memory card **

1. Download and install Nokia MapLoader PC software

 

2. Using USB cable, connect your phone in “Mass Storage mode” – which basically means that PC gets direct access to phone memory card.

3. Run Nokia MapLoader, choose country and download the map.

4. Disconnect the phone, start Maps software, and you are DONE!

 

Way 3: Over the Air (OTA)

 

** The phone must have a data plan **

** Make sure that “Network Settings” for “Map software” have “Use Network”=”When Needed” **

1. Start Map Software on Phone.

 

2. Zoom in ( * key ) to the required area, the right top corner connection icon will start blinking to download data.

 

3. Wait for the map to get downloaded.

 

4. DONE!
