Plazes to Nokia Maps: The Bookmarklet

This bookmarklet has been updated since this post.

Here’s a bookmarklet that makes it easy to turn Plazes into Nokia Maps landmarks. First, drag this link onto your browser toolbar:

Next, visit the page of a Plaze. Here’s the one for my office, for example. Now click the “Make Landmark” bookmark on your toolbar: after a brief pause you’ll be prompted to save a file.

Save this file and copy it to your Nokia Maps-enabled mobile, and open it. You’ll now be able to save the location and details of the Plaze as a landmark, which you can then use just like any other landmark in Nokia Maps. I’ve prepared a brief how-to screencast that illustrates all the steps:

Nokia Map Loader only works on Windows, needs .net framework, and if you add a new map the map loader deletes all your existing maps so you’ll have to download them all over again.

But you don’t need Nokia Map Loader. links to all maps on Nokia’s smart2go server. Works with any browser on any operating system, including Mac and Linux. No need to install anything on your computer, so it works when you’re in a hotel, school, at work, or in an internet cafe.
If your phone talks WiFi or 3G you can add and update maps from your phone’s web browser without even touching a computer.
