    I'd love to be in their offices and watching them test and update these apps... must be a brilliant job.

    Is this an update for the Nokia Maps application that was pre-installed on the 5800?

    It look very nice. I'm happy they improved the panning and scrolling, because it tended to be quite slow.

    I tried, but not able to update my Nokia Maps 2 on my 5800.
    with a message like "Error trying to update application".

    And I don't have any option to uninstall Nokia Maps 2.

    What happens to my license for Nokia Maps 2.0 after updating? Can I keep the license or will it be lost?

    I downloaded and installed Maps 3.0 beta yesterday and everything went smoothly

    I'm pleased that when I launch the app it doesn't remind me anymore that using maps can be expensive 'cause I'm not in my own network (in which I AM).

    The graphics are much more nicer lookin' than before, and now I see all the nearby train stations etc.

    And one of the best things is that when browsing the map and near by areas the map tells me how far I am from my current location (red dot). Nice feature to estimate distances

    All in all, I'm pleased with the new version of Ovi Maps, great work from Nokia
