Deletion contested - Largest Mapping service for phones[edit]

  • Keep - This is the largest mapping service for mobile devices, and is up there, notability wise with Google Maps and Yahoo! Maps. If this was small service by a small company the deletion would've been valid. Not in this case. Proper references have also provided and this article is not selling/advertising any aspect of the Nokia Maps service. —IncidentFlux [ TalkBack | Contributions ] 18:38, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Keep, this is a bad speedy nomination. GregorB (talk) 19:08, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Note Sorry about the speedy, but this does seem promotional to me. --Clubmarx (talk) 19:38, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Keep - Not really promotional, just lacking in information. --69.207.47.45 (talk) 14:36, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

Free?[edit]

“Ovi Maps is a free mapping product and service″... The application and maps are free, but the navigation feature is not, although at least some phones ship with a time-limited demo license. DES (talk) 11:23, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

3,0[edit]

when was version 3,0 released? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.105.36.29 (talk) 07:05, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

n95[edit]

someone please also write about which models ovi maps is good on such as n95, etc. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.105.36.29 (talk) 08:41, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

As of April 2011, the 5230 (whose whole selling point was the free GPS) is no longer allowed to download Maps from Ovi, and Maps has disappeared from Nokia Beta Labs. I have doubts that a chart of supported models could shrink quickly enough. 68.0.226.163 (talk) 02:19, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

countries[edit]

In which countries does the navigation works? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.58.145.96 (talk) 10:51, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

In 180 countries.France64160 (talk) 22:00, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

Icon Now Commons orange.svg An image used in this article, File:Ovi maps.png, has been nominated for speedy deletion at Wikimedia Commons for the following reason: Copyright violations
What should I do?
Speedy deletions at commons tend to take longer than they do on Wikipedia, so there is no rush to respond. If you feel the deletion can be contested then please do so (commons:COM:SPEEDY has further information). Otherwise consider finding a replacement image before deletion occurs.

Nokia Maps 3D does not use LiDAR[edit]

The article states that Nokia Maps 3D uses LiDAR to generate its 3D maps. However, Nokia Maps actually uses C3 Technology's 3D process, which does not use LiDAR but a proprietary process involving sophisticated image processing to produce the 3D models. Viewing Nokia Maps 3D and looking at the bottom of the screen should display "C3 Technologies". A quick Google search of "Nokia" and "C3" should also reveal this. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wizardjoewaffle (talkcontribs) 18:14, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

3D Maps with iPad2[edit]

Can somebody explain to me how come I see 3D maps of most major US cities with my iPad2? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Delyan (talkcontribs) 03:17, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

Are you sure you are not confusing 3D View with Street Level View? kashmiri 03:28, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
The cities that are available on HERE.com in the browser are listed here. If you can find a source, that says that those cities are available on the iPad app, please go ahead and add it. Whether or not you can or can't find them on your own device is an insufficient criterion. --hydrox (talk) 04:02, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
Kashmiri, no, I'm not confusing 3D with Street View. Hydrox, believe it or not Nokia site is NOT updated with their latest cities available in 3D. I go to Nokia maps on my iPad2 and I see most major US cities in 3D. That's why I kept adding the name of the cities, but somebody kept deleting them. And not only that but he called me an 'idiot'. I realize that probably Windows doesn't have the latest 3D maps, but iPad2 has them. Делян (talk) 12:46, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
Still, it's WP:OR. An information can be included in this encyclopaedia only after it is confirmed by reliable sources. This is WP:NOT a technology blog. Sorry. kashmiri 14:56, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
It's not right to call anyone idiot here, as it's against the Wikipedia code of conduct. Experience has shown that when faced with such incidents it's best to keep calm, remind editors of proper conduct, and carry on.
Still, I can't find anything at all about 3D maps on Nokia HERE for iOS on the Internet. Their app description in Apple's App Store makes no mention about any 3D features either, and has only 2D screenshots. Though, Apple's own Maps for iOS and Google Earth for iOS do have 3D maps. Are you sure you're not confusing it with one of those? --hydrox (talk) 21:03, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

Merge discussion[edit]

Here Map Creator seems to contain information that fully belongs in this article as a function or subproduct of it's subject. I propose that Here Map Creator somehow be merged into Here (Nokia). Steel1943 (talk) 13:50, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Merge Not substantial enough article on its own compared to Google Map Maker, a similar extension to Google Maps. I think it would be easier for readers to discover this content as a part of the Here (Nokia) article. --hydrox (talk) 13:59, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
