By this do you mean the Windows Map Loader, or the Ovi Map client to load onto the device? I have the Map Loader app on my PC since using Ovi Maps on my E61/71.

I did try but can't see if it's actually worked.

Ok good to know that. Are they stored in the 32GB of user memory, or in the 1GB of application memory?

Do you have the file location just to see if it has worked?

Yep that's exactly what I do with my E71.

Thanks I'll give it a whirl.
