How to upgrade to Mobile Maps 10.
1. Uninstall Sygic Mobile Maps 9 from your Nokia N900. Go to App Manager in your device, click on Uninstall and choose Mobile Maps - Application.Confirm by clicking Uninstall.
After you have uninstalled Mobile Maps from your device connect your mobile phone to your PC/Mac in Mass storage mode / Data transfer mode (not PC Suite mode or ActiveSync), so the device will be present as separate Disk letter in My Computer (for Windows) or Disk icon on Desktop (for Mac OS X). Open the folder with your device and you should see folders: /Drive, /Maps,/Res and SetupMobileMaps.deb. Delete those folders, just to be sure they are not located in your device.
2. Please click on the link below to download .zip archive with files needed to run application (+/-2GB). http://storage.sygic.com/index.php?hash=9085717f02
3.After downloading, unzip this archive.If you have Windows ME or XP, Vista, Widows7 or Mac OS X, just double-click on the zip file or folder, it should open just as if it was a regular file or folder on your computer.
4. Copy content of unzipped folder (folders: /Drive, /Maps, /Res etc...) directly to root of Internal memory drive.(It is necessary to copy all folders to Internal memory, not SD card. Otherwise application won’t run.)
IMPORTANT: Folders Drive, Res and Maps must be located directly in the root of Internal memory drive - not in any other folder. (for example: H:/Drive = OK, H:/Sygic Mobile Maps/Drive = Wrong; drive letter can vary according to your computer).
5. Open File manager in Maemo, locate and execute file SetupMobileMaps.deb stored in initial folder of N900. Installation should start afterward. If you are unable to install file SetupMobileMaps.deb because system asks which application should be used to open .deb package or any problem with certificate occurs, it might be caused by your old phone firmware. In that case, you have 2 options:
Update your phone to latest firmware available via: Application Manager > Update. Latest firmware available is: V10.2010.19-1 or
1, Install rootsh*
2, Gain root access **
3, Install package via console (X Terminal):
dpkg –i /home/user/MyDocs/SetupMobileMaps.deb (This command is case sensitive)
*Note: As rootsh is the simplest option, and does not require a desktop computer or running additional services, it is the recommended method for gaining root access. rootsh is available in Extras, and can be installed from the Application manager if you have Extras enabled.
**Note: From the console (X Terminal), type&run sudo gainroot (or root for short). This will give you a root access.

response from Sygic:
we have experienced huge interest in the free update to Mobile Maps 10 for Maemo - Eshop version. You have managed to crash our servers.
We would like to apologize for the inconvenience you may have experienced when downloading the new application. Some of you found themselves in a situation when they deleted the old version but couldn’t download the new. We are very sorry for this.
We have added several new servers to handle your demand. Please try downloading from the link you have been provided.
glad to hear that you guys have been successful in getting it.
remember, you will need to have your activation code from your mobile maps 9, as mine was the same, my guess is that yours is too.
and also, the maps are for USA only.
glad it can make it easier for others to get it as i know that sygic is still over-whelmeed.
