Nokia maps for Nokia Asha 202

Hello people,

 

I bought the new nokia asha 202 a few days ago. Its a series 40 phone. Now, even though its advertised on the nokia site that the phone has nokia maps available for free download, there is no nokia maps app available on the phone to access the downloaded maps.

I have updated the software on the phone with nokia suite, tried downloading different versions of nokia maps app available on the nokia europe site but nothing worked :smileysad:

Is there anyone who can help me?

 

Thanks.

Re: Nokia maps for Nokia Asha 202

Hello Jampe,

I have downloaded the user guide. It says that I have to access the MAP option in the phone menu. The problem is that I dont have a 'MAP' option/ application in my menu at all. Nokia asha 202 is supposed to have this option. Even the user guide points to it. But my phone is missing the app in the phone menu.

The only other answer is that the advertisment on the Nokia India site is misleading. Under the hardware tag it says that nokia maps is available as a free download. But the phone doesnt have an app to run it. This is really frustrating as nokia maps is fantastic and I really wanted to use it.

My phone software is up to date so I think there is nothing wrong with the OS or the menu. Is there a way I can get nokia maps app for series 40 through a download or some other way.

Thank you.

Re: Nokia maps for Nokia Asha 202

Just check if 'MAPS' appears under the list where you select the Shortcuts for your Home Screen. On my Nokia X3-00 also it never appeared under Menu or other Folders..but while setting the Shortcuts, I accidentally came across 'MAPS' and there they are ...

Re: Nokia maps for Nokia Asha 202

Checked there too. Doesnt exist on the phone. Got in touch with Nokia India customer care. They sent me a message saying that the Nokia maps for this phone is region specific and it may not be available on my phone. I am feeling a bit let down because they have not put this fact up on the site and I bought the phone believing Nokia. I have a great respect for Nokia and their products but this sort of leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

Nyways, now that I have bought the phone, is there a way around this problem? A download or something? Anything.

Thanx once again.

Re: Nokia maps for Nokia Asha 202

Sorry to know that.. BTW, you should get in touch with Nokia again and ask for a replacement with another model that has 'Maps' on it .. Since they have advertised it wrongly or in a way a customer can get misguided, they may give you an option.. Try your luck..

As for the download there is no way you can...

Re: Nokia maps for Nokia Asha 202

I have the same problem for my Nokia Asha 203. Although the Nokia page says it has maps, there is no Map-Application for it. Is it only for several countries available (I live in Germany)? That would be quite stupid from Nokia, I mean I can understand if there are apps from third-parties not available in every contry, but why Nokia-own-software? What is the reason for that?

Re: Nokia maps for Nokia Asha 202

I have the same problem too and I live in Switzerland. For me it looks like they want to force us to buy the more expensive phones. In the poorer countries it make sense for them to make the asha line more attractive.


But the description on the web is misleading.

Re: Nokia maps for Nokia Asha 202

It's sad that there is no official answer from Nokia about that, and that they are misleading people with wrong data on their site.

They could at least compensate those people and include Nokia Maps with the next update.

Re: Nokia maps for Nokia Asha 202

i had no problem before. i had the map application on my phone (asha202). but after updating my phone's software, the map application was lost. i tried to retrieve it; I was trying to download it from the net but there's nothing to download it from... nokia has to solve this.
