I think it is a shame that no NOKIA representative has replied on this yet.
I have N97 and are faced with the same problem
I have the latest MAPs application - but it is useless and just taking up storage space,
If no resolution for this soon
I will have to remove it from my Phone...
Nokia representitlves are a rare bread around here
These are predomanantly user to user support forums
if you want an answer from Nokia use the Contact us tab above
However I would imagine it is diffcult to liscence map data from Isreil due to the conflict in the country, especialy for small GPS devices that would fit neatly into the front end of a rocket
I think that Google maps may provide a map tho there navigation is still under development

Don't you think that a (GPS) guided missile would be launched from abroad?
We have all sorts of pocket GPS devices on sale in Israel. However, if there is a built-in GPS antenna in my mobile phone I'd better use it than bother taking with me one more device. There are several vendors that issued navigation programs for Israel on Symbian OS, i.e. Sygic. It runs well on Nokia E66 (Symbian 9.2), but fails to start up on my Nokia 5730 (Symbian 9.3).
Hi synth ,
With all my respect , Iran is in Nokia Maps and there is a conflict there right ?
Also in half of the world they have a conflicts so I think this is purely politics .
I'm afraid that in this case, it is not politics, but business... See, due to security reasons, the only company that is allowed to make a digital map of Israel is Mapa GISrael. Google has bought the map from them (see for yourself on google maps), Nokia has not. They buy their maps from Teleatlas and NAVTEQ, who have no coverage of Israel. Simple as that...
I have NDrive running on my Nokia N86MP. I can't say that I'm thrilled with it but clearly there is no obstacle to getting maps with all sorts of points of interest on them. Orange (my Israeli cellular operator) has their own version of "Orange maps". So maybe they are just trying to milk the Israeli consumer for something they are giving the rest of the world for free.
I will go to Israel in October. How is the 3g or edge coverage in Israel? As I understood, the ovi maps dont help me in Israel. I have use google maps. Another question - is there some kind of prepaid phone sim card to use them for 3g network?
