Hi everyone,

Posting on behalf of someone, he has an E72 from Telecom which uses Nokia's Ovi Maps. He's downloaded the Australia and New Zealand options and loaded them on the phone and can't seem to find a way to switch between them. This is something we would like to sort before he ends up in Oz with no clue as to where he is going.

I've looked through all the settings etc and can't seem to find a 'switch' option. We were thinking that once he got over there and used the 'My Position' option it would load the applicable map, but we're not sure.

The maps are definately on the memory card in the phone.

Any clarification/help would be appreciated.

You don't need to select anything. As long as the maps data is loaded on the handset (Telecom and Vodafone bought handsets come preloaded with AU/NZ maps) then you need to do nothing more.

Easiest way to check if you have the map loaded is plug the device into Ovi Suite, Open the Maploader, down the bottom left there is a window where you can check what map data and voices you have loaded.

Just go into Ovi Maps and enter an address in Auctralia. If the maps are loaded you'll see it appear onscreen.
