Map location accuracy for internet on-line (maps.ovi.com) for Hong Kong

If I set a location with maps.ovi.com on-line.  Saved it into my favorites, on-line.

Synchronize the favorites on my 5800 ovi maps v3.04. 

Then try to go to the location set.  I could never get there, the location is never accurate.

 

Then, with maps.ovi.com, I turn on the satellite view, I find the error between the satellite view and the Nokia map is about 500m North-South and 100m East-West.

 

Would some one help ?

Try updating the map data on your phone to the latest version if you haven't already done so recently.

Thanks, I did so already, but the problem remains.

 

If I set the location with the mobil ( both by search and by standing at the location ), there is no problem at all.  So, I guess the problem is with the on-line map, not with the map on the mobil phone.

 

BTW the map version is 0.1.25.114

You do have the latest map data.

 

This is not a problem I have encountered myself. Just last night I set a list of favourites online and synched to my phone. I just checked and all is well.

 

It may be worth trying to do the same with another country and see if the same thing happens.

I have checked again and recofirm that this IS a problem for both the Hong Kong and Chinese maps ------ the on-line maps on the maps.ovi.com. 

 

I have checked the several London Bridges remain in good shape no matter under map view or the statellite view.  But the HK and China maps have the problem described in my first post.

 

Would Nokia staff help to rectify the problem ?

Check the coordinates of the locations on maps.ovi.com, the Ovi maps coorditnate for the same location on your phone and finally the coordinate for the same location after it is transferred from maps.ovi.com to your phone.. Just interesting to see if the coordinates are the same.

Thanks for the reminder.

 

I'd mistaken that the Nokia people may be reading this forum.

 

I have send a e-mail to them.

Did you get a chance to check the various coordinates and compare them? It will give an indication of where the error might be.

Re: Map location accuracy for internet on-line (maps.ovi.com) for Hong Kong

Dear cjlim,

 

With the on-line ovi map, I could not find how to display the coordinates of a location.

 

Similary, with the mobil ovi map on the 5800, I do not know how to display the location unless I go to that place physcially.

 

However, I have estimated in my first message :

"Then, with maps.ovi.com, I turn on the satellite view, I find the error between the satellite view and the Nokia map is about 500m North-South and 100m East-West."

I had reported this problem to Nokia, but nothing seems to be happening.

You can set up the location as a favourite and get the coordinates from the Landmarks application on your phone.

 

Map data issues should be reported to Navteq the map data provider and not Nokia.
