I just received a Lumia 900 and updated to the latest firmware and am having troubles downloading maps on nokia drive, both on the 2.0 and now 3.0. It says I need to be on wifi to download, however I am on wifi and I can access the web, email and every other function on my phone, except download maps on Nokia Drive as it doesn't recognize I am online on wifi however drive does work only it updates the map in realtime so I can't use the maps offline as it does not allow me to download offline maps. When I uninstall drive and then reinstall the app I can download from the maps for countries that do not have regions such as hong kong, however if I select US or China, a large country where you have to select the region the region/state page is blank. I have already tried soft and hard resetting to no avail and also tried different wifi networks with the results. What else can I do?!
Presumably you followed this advice to the letter:
To install the latest map data in your phone you need to uninstall and reinstall the Nokia Drive application and download the map data again:
Symbian specialist until 31/01/2013 with interests in Maemo & MeeGo but an aversion to Windows!
Will my favorite points be saved in the phone when I uninstall and reinstall Nokia Drive? Because it's still impossible to synch and save them with Nokia Maps.
With the latest Nokia Maps update it is now possible to sync your favourites between your online account and Nokia Maps.
Yes, but not with Nokia Drive.
I still don't see the point of dividing one good app into two halfbaked.
You can still select your favourites from Nokia Maps and select them for navigation that way.
Nokia have already explained that the current release is only beta. There was never one app for Maps for windows phones. Why not wait for the final release before passing judgement.
