different points of interest, plan routes from one location to another, and save locations as

Some maps may be pre-loaded on the memory card in your device. You can download more
maps through the internet using Nokia Map Loader PC software. See "Download maps," p. 38.
Maps uses GPS. You can define the positioning methods used with your device. See
"Positioning settings," p. 34. For the most accurate location information, use either the
internal GPS or a compatible external GPS receiver.
To start Maps, press the Navigator key.
When you use Maps for the first time, you may need to select a cellular access point for
downloading map information for your current location. To change the default access point
later, select Options > Tools > Settings > Internet > Network destination.
To receive a note when your device registers to a network outside your home network, select
Options > Tools > Settings > Internet > Roaming warning > On. For details and roaming
costs, contact your network service provider.
The data transfer indicator shows the internet connection used and the amount of data
transferred since the application started.
Almost all digital cartography is inaccurate and incomplete to some extent. Never rely solely
on the cartography provided for use in this device.
When you open Maps, it shows the location that was saved from your last session or the
capital of the country you are in. The map of the location is also downloaded, if needed.
To establish a GPS connection and zoom in to your last known location, press the Navigator
key, or select Options > My position.
A GPS indicator (
) shows the availability and strength of the satellite signal.
One bar indicates one satellite. When the device receives enough data from the satellite to
establish a GPS connection, the bar turns green. Your device must receive signals from at
least four satellites to calculate the coordinates of your location. After the initial calculation,
signals from three satellites may be enough.
To zoom in or out, press * or #. To move on the map, use the scroll key. A new map is
automatically downloaded if you scroll to an area which is not covered by maps already
downloaded. See "Download maps," p. 38. The maps are free of charge, but downloading may
involve the transmission of large amounts of data through your service provider's network.
For more information on data transmission charges, contact your service provider. The maps
are automatically saved in the device memory or on a compatible memory card (if inserted).
