    Default Ovi Maps offline on a helicopter

    <span>Joe is passionate about cartography and flying. He took a helicopter tour of Berlin and tracked the helicopters GPS position with Ovi Maps on his Nokia N97 in offline mode. Before getting on the helicopter he used Nokia Map Loader to preload the map of Berlin and Brandenburg on his phone.</span><span></span>

    This video is a lie, i have the N97 and you cannot have satellite view if you are not connected, not even preload it with maps loader.

    Also the phone needs a lot of time to get a lock on gps satellite signal, at least 15 mins

    No satellite view without internet connection... video conveys wrong message.

    Also POI search database is limited. No problem with popular places, but if you want to do local search then you are out of luck.

    Clunky usability.

    Most useful feature that needs to be added will be voice search. That makes it easy to use.
