You need to download Kies program from Samsung homepage, connect your phone via USB cable and it should automatically upgrade the firmware to Gingerbread. Your maps or other programs won't be changed.

Later you can go to Google Play to upgrade the Maps, or on the top screen of your mobile you get notices that there are updates available for your programs that you have. It takes time to receive the notices.
