Rather than using Nokia Maps, i've tried to load the Garmin Mobile XT on my E71. Step by step will be given here for all the readers who owns phones that running on Symbian S60 3rd Edition..
Happy DIY-ing = )

I just got my E71 with garmin xt load. my handset is AP/non official unit. it seems my gps can only work with my sim card on, without my sim card or offline gps doesnt seem to have signal at all. i've tried my friends official unit, even without the sim card he can still navigate. am only afraid my telco will charge me for navigation

Tried to setup Garmin on my E71 from the provided steps.

Got the message ‘Unable to complete installation from the memory card. To install, please proceed to Application Manager”. Have tried running from App Manager. It also prompts “Unable to install”. Anybody has any idea?
