Nokia Maps zooming shortcuts for E71

Do you find shortcuts suggested for zooming map in/out on E71 as a nightmare? I do. Pressing function key and then * (U) or # (J) is not very useful with E71’s full keyboard. I remember it worked fine on my N80 but not on E71. Timi from the phoneomenon.com blog posted very useful hint for all Nokia Maps and E71 users. Instead of keyboard shortcuts suggested by icons on right side of the Maps workscreen you can use upper arrow key to zoom the map in or backspace key to zoom it out! It really works!

    nice trick! Though the “upper arrow key” might confuse some readers: It is not the “up” of the D-pad, but the SHIFT-Key that zooms in….

    It works. But I don’t use Nokia Maps at all. I got used to TomTom for Symbian (installed and worked great on my E71) and Nokia Maps are just gadgets to show friends for fun. It’s not usefull for navigation and real professional use. Not yet.

    Its “Shift” and “delete”, I found it out on the day I got my E71 before reading the “proper” keys to use in the manual 🙂

    You can also use the space bar to center the view to your own location.
