    Try turning off cell data just for the download and see if that helps

    I always used Nokia Suites through my computer. You can select the maps you want. As D5 said, they are big downloads.

    I just thought of something. I had a Nokia Map update on my N8 about 3 or 4 days ago. When you connect with Nokia Suite, check for updates first. You may have an update too for maps.

    What happens if you here with your computer: Nokia Maps - City and Country Maps - Driving Directions - Satellite Views - Routes

    Does it say anything about your phone?

    Hi All ,

    I searched the web for this problem and found only this thread...

    I have exactly the same issue.
    I also have a NOKIA LUMIA 800. This is a windows Phone so you can not use Nokia Ovi suite or any of their other tools. You have to use Zunu. Which is really a Pain...... If you thought that by Ovi suite is bad, you can get worse...... but that is a different discussion. ..... Zunu does not have anything in there to download Maps. So you HAVE to use Wifi

    So I download a map, get stuck at 90 % or so and than is says "a Wifi connection is required to download maps......"

    It does not show up in the list of downloaded maps. Every!!! map I download ends at 90% with the same error. Trying the same map twice immediately gives this error..
