Google Maps may not work on your phone. If you'd still like to try, download Google Maps for a high-end phone or a mainstream phone. (US/Canada)

Well, I tried the high-end phone version anyway. Internet Explorer asked me whether I want to download ...-Generic-Advanced_MIDP2_L1.jad I said yes. It seems to be a fairly big download, because the phone is still trying to download it.

It didn't work. I tried the mainstream phone, which asks me to download gmaps-Generic-Basic_MIDP1_L1.jad, as well. But I don't know what to do with those files.
