Nokia SportsTracker v2.05 with Maps

Nokia Sports Tracker v2.05 with Maps

Finally Nokia makes the map option available in the Sports Tracker Application
Nokia Maps v2.05 - With Maps

Phone - Map Options - Source
Maps are available - though the Phone option does not use Nokia Maps (v2 or v3) data to display but rather downloads tiles (similar to web based maps).

Not sure if that is a good thing, Would rather have preloaded tiles on an area - due to out of network issues with walking, hiking, cycling in rural areas.

But at least the maps have made it to this application- after a long and a number of submitted requests.

Only 'Map Tiles' available - no Satellite or Terrain option (unlike the Nokia Maps)

The fastest way to get it is connet to a wifi source and use the 'check for updates on the phone.
Or Download it from here

Sports Tracker GPS fix quality
GPS Fix strength/quality is viewable (map has no data in this area) and will also replay your routes.


Suggestion - Terrain maps would be useful.

I still don't get the difference between "Phone" and "Phone and network" options when choosing map material. According to your text the "phone" option would use network access (whether it's wlan or 3g/gprs) to download the maps of your excercise location. What does the "Phone and network" option do then?

I still haven't had a chance to test the updated Sports Tracker, but the ability to actually see your location on map while running/cycling/etc. is most welcome. Although, I've read somethign about ST still not being able to use those maps already availabe on phone's maps application.

Phone (if you WERE connected to a wifi/cell network) this stores a cache of the maps on your phone.
so use wifi before you go saves money.

Phone+Network - refreshs that cache as you move = more expense as using data transfer.

Yes - Nokia why cannot you use the Nokia Maps Data within Sports Tracker?
