Nokia Maps – Make Your N73 A Map Even Without GPS



Nokia maps is an application developed for those who travel a lot. It is GPS compatible so it’s a good thing to have a GPS receiver but even if you don’t have one, you can still use this application. It just won’t tell you where you are.

Installation Process:

1. Download Nokia Maps

2. Download Nokia Map Loader

3. Install Nokia Maps on your phone

4. Install Nokia Map Loader

5. Connect your phone in mass-storage mode or use a card reader

6. Upload the maps on your phone

7. Enjoy!!!

  1. […] Here’s another interesting post I read today by bedobela […]

  2. Nokia Map Loader only works on Windows, needs .net framework, and if you add a new map the map loader deletes all your existing maps so you’ll have to download them all over again.

    But you don’t need Nokia Map Loader! links to all maps on Nokia’s smart2go server. Works with any browser on any operating system, including Mac and Linux. No need to install anything on your computer, so it works when you’re in a hotel, school, at work, or in an internet cafe.
    If your phone talks WiFi or 3G you can add and update maps from your phone’s web browser without even touching a computer.

  3. LOL. Don’t tell me you’ve downloaded them all…

    I don’t have time to try these but I don’t trust sites like this though(ones with no comments from actual users)…sorry if it really works:)
    If someone actually tries this procedure please tell me about its authenticity.


  4. i have tried both methods and failed to get nokia maps working on my phone N73 updated to current firmware v4.0736.3.2.1 and also new version of pc suit.

    i downloaded a 106.2mb file (maps for Australia) which included the maps (104mb) and voice guidance (2.2mb) and still it doesn’t work.

    above bedobela and 666 mention nokia map loader. i used it to download maps and voice to memory card (2gb). prior to this i ran nokia maps from my phone once as suggested to create the directories. still nothing.

    666’s suggested to try smart2go method. long and painstaking method also did not achieve any results.
    If anyone can help it will be greatly appreciated.

    • dude just wait sometime too work..
      probably u just try standing outside in open network..
      works or me tat way..

      cheers to all..

  5. Does it work at all? I mean you can un Nokia Maps but no map will appear right?

    That’s the same problem I had once…The solution was to start everything over again and it worked.

    if you have FW v4.0736.3.2.1, you should have Nokia Maps preinstalled so you can’t uninstall it. Just try running the map loader again and see if it works(don’t forget to connect you phone in mass storage mode).

    PS: It would be the best to format your memory card before…maybe it has some problems.

  6. this ofcourse works u just have to install the nokia maps from in ur memory cards and use is once without the maps…..and den intall the maps….

    chk out the official site of nokia :

  10. why i connect my phone to the pc, but the map loader cannot detect my phone.It show waiting for device.

  11. You have to connect it in mass storage mode…that way it will recognize the phone or if you have the newest PC Suite, it has an option in the main window which can make it work without having you connect your phone in mass storage mode.
