Hi everyone,

My phone (N82) was shipped with Nokia Maps v2.0 wk30 b04 version. Then the Ovi Maps application was released. That was many years ago.

When I open the Nokia Maps on my phone and navigate to a location it loads the map data from the Internet on demand, and apparently stores it in the /cities/diskcache folder.

If I want to keep an offline copy of that data (in case Nokia servers go offline), technically, I can copy the contents of the /cities/diskcache and use it as long as I need to. But in order to fill that cache, I guess, I'll have to manually browse all teritorry in the maximum zoom, which will take too long.

I did a search on the Internet and found some links (http://discussions.nokia.com/t5/HERE-Location-based-services/Map-Seri es-00-01-29-100/td-p/1639304 and http://archive.today/0orwR).

Say, here's the map data for the whole Europe: http://static.maploader.maps.svc.ovi.com/map5/maploaderzip-00.01.29.10 0/2.zip located on the official Nokia servers. Last modified (according to the HTTP headers) in April 2014, the size is 2.4G.

I tried to download and unpack (into /cities/diskcache) the data for my country but it didn't work, the phone showed me the blank area as if I did a factory reset. It looks like that's the data for the new Ovi Maps application which seems to be incompatible with the format Nokia Maps use. And I can't find a working download of the Ovi Maps app for my phone.

So I guess my question is, does anyone know how to download the raw data precisely for the Nokia Maps? Or does it make more sense to try to make the Ovi Maps work on my phone (I found some unofficial downloads). Is the Nokia Maps and Ovi Maps data even different - they seem to be using the same folder structure?

Please let me know!
