Backing up Ovi Maps downloads (N9)
As Nokia is now getting serious with shutting down the N9 infrastructure, I'm wondering if anyone thought about backing up all Ovi Maps country downloads. Especially how to proceed in doing so.

Usually I have only three to four countries installed, because the startup time of the app get very long with a long list of countries on the device. Anyone tried to installed more (all) countries and then move them out of the device and maybe modifying some configuration file, eventually moving them back?

This seems like one of the many services that we might lose when Nokia shuts the servers down. Is there a thread for community replacements? We don't have a lot of time anymore.

I guess that if somebody downloads a map while in their home WLAN, using a local proxy that logs all accesses (or looking at router logs), it should be possible to find out the URLs from where the maps are fetched... 2013-10-09 17:40

I had this in scripts :

cd $HOME/MyDocs/cities && wget -c "$url"
cd $HOME/MyDocs/cities/diskcache && unzip ../*.zip
