To install this new update, you need to download the Nokia Maps Updater, a PC-only application. All you Mac users and Linux users out there still need to wait to get the Maps Updater but if are willing to update then thank Ricky Caden at the Symbian-Guru who did some well-timed searching and pulled out the straight up .sis files for both S60v5 and S60v3 Feature Pack 2 devices.

Nokia PC Suite has been updated to version 7.1.30.9 today

The application is 35Mb in size, that goes up to 290Mb on installation. Though this update does not mention any new feature but shall surely improve on the application’s stability.

When you shall run your PC Suite Application it shall prompt you to update but for any reason if this does not happen then you can download it over at the Nokia PC Suite website.
