GPS gives you the geographical location coordinates. it gives in what country you are. it shows the borders of countries. those information are sent to you from satellites.
i'll search for you for a map.

but in case you have GPRS or WAP subscription you can download "Google maps with my location" and you will be able to know you location and see it on google maps.

install Nokia Maps on your phone, you can download it from here: after you choose the model of your phone.

after i read the documentation of the software they have maps for lebanon (not satellite view) like roads and famous places.
i didn't try this software, as i don't have a nokia phone.

i found on nokia sites a program called Nokia Map loader that you can install on your computer and download maps to it and then transfer them to your phone. and again i tell you that in the coverage area of the maps available from nokia they include lebanon. give it a try:

i found the following link: then click on "Maps for Nokia Maps 2.0 (the current standard version)"
you will directed to a page that has all possible maps. (but they don't have lebanon here)

i used to live in Lebanon and i had a N95 phone and i don't remember in what shop exactly they installed for me, a map for Lebanon..  maybe if you try everything you will have to ask in shops :P
