Nokia Maps 3.06 - How do I install Maps voice guidance files to my device?

You need to install the voice guidance pack to your device and select the desired voice pack in Maps before you can hear the navigation voice instructions. The voice guidance packs can be installed either via Nokia Suite or by downloading the voice packs directly to your device.

The voice packs with street names (voice packs with computer voices) can be used with both drive and walk navigation, the other voice packs are available only with drive navigation.

Installation via Nokia Suite:

  1. Plug in your device to PC running Nokia Suite (select Nokia/Ovi Suite or PC Suite mode as connection mode).
  2. Go to Maps menu in Nokia Suite (View > Go to > Maps).
  3. In the leftmost column select Voice guidance languages.
  4. Select the desired language and click Download to start installing the voice guidance pack.
  5. Go to Maps and select:
    • In Maps 3.06: Settings > Navigation > Drive guidance or Walk guidance.
    • In Maps 3.08 and later: Settings > Drive > Voice guidance or Settings > Maps & Walk > Voice guidance.
  6. From the list of voice packs, select the voice guidance pack that was installed via Nokia Suite (the installed packs are indicated by a phone icon in front of the voice pack).

Installation directly to the device:

  1. In Maps, select:
    • In Maps 3.06: Settings > Navigation > Drive guidance or Walk guidance.
    • In Maps 3.08 and later: Settings > Drive > Voice guidance or Settings > Maps & Walk > Voice guidance.
  2. Select the desired voice guidance pack from the list of available languages.
  3. Select Yes when prompted to download the guidance file.

Note that when downloading the voice guidance files directly to your device, large amounts of data may be downloaded to your mobile device, resulting in data transfer costs.
