Getting the free ovi maps to work on a Nokia 5530

As you're probably aware, ovi maps are being offered for free but only for certain phones.

I've just managed to get this going on my nokia 5530 which doesn't have internal GPS or is even listed as a compatible device on the ovi maps site.

I'm using an external bluetooth gps receiver for gps (thanks to hduk member osx). I downloaded the ovi maps for the nokia n97 mini in the list to my PC, plugged my phone into pc using mass storage mode, copied the .sis I just dl'd to my phones installs folder... ran the install on my phone. I then downloaded nokia map loader setup .exe and ran it on pc, then ran nokia pcsuite... in the options I selected download maps from the internet, picked europe - uk and loaded onto my phone.

All working fine with no need to gprs location data

Thought I'd pass it on for anyone using a 5530, just remember you need an external bluetooth gps device.

Sweet, thanks for the info!

When I heard the news about Ovi Maps I was disappointed for not getting the 5800 as I thought my 5530 would be incompatible.

Which GPS receiver do you have?

I bought the one in this thread mate although I imagine most decent BT devices would suffice.

Cool, not as expensive as I thought. Might have to invest in one at some point..
