Send Locations From Google Maps on Computer To Nokia Maps On Phone

Before I travel to an unfamiliar place, I usually look up the address on Google Maps on my computer. With Map 2 Nokia created by Justin Hourigan, I can send the location of that place to my Nokia phone that have Nokia Maps. I’ll show you how simple it is.

Not only can we send locations from phone to phone with friends, but now we can also send locations computer to phone.

* Go to Google Maps on your computer and find the place you are looking for.
* Center in to the location by double clicking on it.
* Click on the “Link to this page” link
* Copy the link from the “Paste link in email or IM” box
* Go to
* Paste the link into “Google Maps URL” box and type a title and description accordingly.
* Press the “create .lmx” button to create and download the file.
* Bluetooth or email the .lmx file to your phone.
* Open the .lmx file and select options -> show on map.
* Done! You can save the location so that you can start navigating when you’re ready.

This works great on GPS-enabled phones like Nokia N95 8GB, Nokia N82, Nokia N78, Nokia E71 and more coming soon. Justin states on the site that he is still debugging it, so contact him at justin [at] if you encounter any errors.
