You can back up your phone's Nokia Maps Landmarks (which are shared with Google Maps) with Nokia PC Suite. You can also back 'em up or send them to another phone without having a PC nearby, but Nokia kept the method well hidden.
You can't do it from Nokia Maps itself. Instead, you'll need to open the Landmarks application, select the Landmarks you want to save or send, and then hit "Send" from the Options menu.
You can choose between MMS and bluetooth. If you've configured an email account in the built-in messaging program of your Nokia, you can send them by email too.
Unfortunately you can't simply save your Landmarks as a file. Why, Nokia, why?
The same Landmarks are called Favourites in Google Maps. You can send 'em by MMS, bluetooth or email like you can do with the Landmarks application, but Landmarks lets you select multiple Landmarks and send them all together, whereas Google Maps can only send them one by one.
