[maemo-users] Map applications - N800 OS2008

Are we talking about the default Map application or the one from the http://www.navicoretech.com/Consumer/Support/Downloads/tablet/en_GB/tablet/?    I download the map package from the above URL and extracted to the external (removable ) SD card. The default Map app just created a new Map folder on the internal SD after I moved the orginal Map folder to the external SD.

Can someone please provide the step-by-step instructions on how to make the map work? I'm confused here.

  I think that may work.

    I'm pretty sure it had enough space on the internal and external
    cards. I later copied the maps from Navicore there, and it worked
    well. But downloading maps via the application is still not possible.
    Not even for small maps such as Singapore.
