Install Maps on your Nokia phone without using a Windows application

by Volker Weber

Ovi Maps (was Nokia Maps) lets you download maps to your device when connected at home, so you don't have to pay outrageous roaming fees when abroad. So far so good. The PC app that Nokia uses to transfer the maps to the phone is pretty dreadful. Here is a solution to download the maps directly from Nokia and to transfer them to the device storage. Be careful on a Mac though. The Finder does not merge directories but replaces them. Use Terminal and the mv command to move the files.

Why not use Map Loader for Mac?

Because it does not suck any less than the Windows version. Both get their knickers in a twist when trying to find a supported phone in the right configuration. The method above describes a simple download, unzip, copy. It's just made a little bit harder by the fact that the Mac Finder is unable to merge directory trees. Hence "mv here there".
