Nokia Maps Available on Nokia store (for Belle device only)

| November 6, 2011 | 47 Replies

Nokia Maps (previously Ovi Maps) has just been released from the super amazing top secret beta labs over to Nokia store, Except it’s only for Belle devices!? When I tried downloading it over the PC with my phone set to ‘N8’ it said the application wasn’t available; however if you simply change your device to any Belle device (Eg: 701) it’ll download just fine, and install perfectly. (note: I’m running Belle on my N8 so not sure if it’ll work for those on Anna or previous versions.

One of the changes I spotted was the addition of the ‘Belle style taskbar’ at the bottom of the screen:

 Another pretty nice feature is a new home screen widget that shows you your location and gives you the ability to check-in/Email your location directly from the widget. (I’m not sure if this is new, but it’s the first time I see it.)

Version number remains unchanged as the previous release (still 3.08).


For those of you running Belle (officially) run over and get it from the store:

For the rest of you who want the installer file just set your phone as Nokia 701 and go to this link:


IMPORTANT: Some readers are reporting that installing this version on their Symbian Anna phones completely ruins the map apps, solution is to delete EVERYTHING related to Nokia Maps then reboot &  reinstall 3.08 from beta labs. ONLY FOR BELLE!

I think that’s about all that’s new, difficult to tell as their is no change-log, but if you notice anything else let us know.
