Nokia Ovi Maps Iraq for Nokia E5

Nokia Ovi maps request me to update the suit and I did. Currently my suit version is 3.1.1.90. On 1st Sep 11 on the way from my home country Sri Lanka to Iraq in dubai transist , I bought a Nokia E5 phone on the dubai free shop (http://www.panoramio.com/photo/58338799) and the sales men told me that it had that it support Iraq maps too. My application detects my device there is no problem with that. It also preloaded with Iran, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Savudi Arabia, United Arba Emirates which I don't require but doesn't matter for me as it have enough space. All I need is Iraq map which I cannot find it in Ovi Maps. It looks strange that close by countries to Iraq are available?. When I load the ovimaps in the webbrowser I can see Iraq. Based on that and based on the sales men promise I bought Nokia E5 phone. I was surprised to see Iraq is not available in the Ovimaps. Has anything gone wrong due to Ovi Maps update or it's not available at all. If Ovi maps for Iraq cannot be used what other maps can be used for Nokia E5 phone. Thanks in advance.

Re: Nokia Ovi Maps Iraq for Nokia E5

farby, if I cannot use ovi maps then what other maps can I use with Nokia E5 mobile?. Why the ovimaps webversion have some maps for Iraq but not the nokia mobile? I feel that I have wasted my money with this nokia handset which and the salesmen have cheated me. Was there any plan in future that Iraq maps will be availabe in furture? To prevent the salesmen from cheating others I will disclose the shop details below.

It is not strictly true that there is no mapping for Iraq but that it is non-navigable (not enough detail) with only real difference between 00.01.26.113 on your E5 running Ovi Maps v3.04 and that of 00.02.43.117 for devices running v3.06 & later is transit lines.

Re: Nokia Ovi Maps Iraq for Nokia E5

aspergerguy , thanks for the reply. Iraq map is fine with me and actually asked the salesmen about the map not about the navigation. Though I apprecaite the navigation but not the priority for me. 

 

Problem I have is that I don't have any Iraq map in Nokia E5 handset. How do I install a map on my Nokia E5 handset?. Ovi maps doesn't show Iraq map at all?. Is it because of the update happend aftere I purchase the nokia mobile?. Where did you get the map shown in the above post?. How can I get the same map?. I really appreciate if you can help on this. Thanks in advance.

To help out on forum I have downloaded all five continents directly from map servers so this usually includes what is available for non-navigable countries too. If you set Ovi Maps application "Online" via a WLAN access point if available and zoom down to current position it will download what detail is available and if traverse across area in horizontal strips this will find any map tiles and success is recorded by changes in the kb meter download.

Re: Nokia Ovi Maps Iraq for Nokia E5

@asperguy, thanks for the reply but downloading all maps is not practical for 2 reasons. First I do not have enougth space in my mobile SD card secondly I do not have a speedy internet connection http://www.speedtest.net/result/1473099294.png.I shall be thakful if Nokia can allow only to download Iraq maps from Nokia from the Ovi maps menu. I am sure this will not only help me but also others from the internet connection. Thanks.
