Nokia S60 users can enjoy Google Earth. You can search for businesses or locations using your voice, find or meet your friends and get directions without carrying a big map.
Google Earth is not only available for Windows and Linux but also supports mobile devices such as iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Nokia S60. It's amazing to see places using our phone! Using Google Earth for Nokia has saved me time when moving around places I'm not familiar with. Even taxi drivers have been helped by Google Earth and Google Maps.
To have Google Earth for Nokia smartphones, you simply need to visit the Google Earth webpage using your PC or Nokia phone:
- If you use your PC, go to this website of Google Earth. Click on "Send to Phone" and enter your mobile number (without entering the country code). Next, select your country in the drop-down menu to receive a text message with the link to download Google Earth.
If you have your phone right now, simply open the built-in web browser then type http://m.google.com/, choose to download Google Maps.
Some Nokia users have asked where is Google Earth for Nokia when you install Google Maps? Well just load up Google Maps then choose "Satellite view" to start looking for places just like you would on Google Earth.
Installing and Using Google Earth for Nokia
You can install Google Maps to use the Earth or Satellite view on your memory card. It is not required to install it on your system drive. I like installing applications on memory card, giving the applications more power to use the system memory because it is not full yet. Google Maps require 1MB of disk space.
After installing Google Maps, you will find it in the Installations menu of your Nokia phone. To easily open Google Maps on your Nokia phone, I suggest adding a Google Maps shortcut to your Home Screen (Settings>Personalization>Home Screen>Mode Settings>Home Screen Applications>Application Shortcuts).
The first time you launch Google Maps to view the earth or search for locations by voice or manually typing, you will be presented by a Terms and Condition screen. Accept it to start using the program.
You can connect Google Earth or Google Maps using your SIM cards connection (GPRS, for example) or if there's public Wi-Fi, you can use that too because the program will search for any available GPS network.
Google Earth is an impressive application for Nokia devices. Google Maps' UI and menu is easy to use. You'll never miss an appointment or lose your way when you have Google Earth for Nokia. Try it soon!
