I was half asleep and had sony on my mind lol. Sorry
No problem . How do you like your W760? So no other GPS apps work on it other than the ATT Navigator?Originally Posted by Icyhot1966
Its ok. Good little backup phone. For 20 bucks at Walmart it was worth it. I dont think so. Google maps only uses the my location. But if i need GPS I'll switch to my N95.
Which version have you tried? I tried the signed from the WAP site and got an error preventing it from installing. The unsigned installed, and the app looks great, but the unsigned gives the Network use nag 5 times every time the map changes, and it doesn't seem to be using the GPS. Too bad. Looks like a nice one.Originally Posted by gospeedgo
I think it might not be working because it is Java application. Seems like this is where the AT&T-Nokia combo causes issues. Of course Opera works fine so I don't know what the deal is.
I'm not sure if it's signed or not. I didn't have any problems installing, and it's giving the nag prompts, so I'm assuming it's the unsigned version.
I tried installing again, this time the signed version, and I wasn't able to get it installed. Got an "application failed" message. I have a query in at AmazeGPS, so I'll wait and see what they have to say.
I downloaded maps for a bunch of different countries and have been really impressed. Indonesia shows some of the most obscure side roads and alleys. So, why is it that my map of japan shows nothing but the biggest expressways and absolutely no detail of cities? Passing through tokyo i wasn't able to see anything on the map except a gray area for the city. Did i miss something?

Anyway, I'm downloading a few more US states but was wondering how I know what I have already downloaded to my N82. Where are the map files stored? How do you go about deleting ones you don't use?
That's one of my beefs with Maps. I don't think there is a way of seeing what you've downloaded already. With the 8GB card in my N82, I have the whole US, Mexico, and Canada loaded, so I don't have to remember. When I was using a smaller memory card, I kept a list by my computer (you could also create a note listing what maps you have loaded).
The other beef is that you can't delete individual maps. The Maps Loader only has the option to delete all the maps. Maybe you could figure this out on the phone, but I haven't tried. Maybe this will be changed with Maps 3.0.
On Nokia Maps, how do I input numbers in the search bar at the bottom of the map.
Also, how do I set directions on my phone from point A (GPS Position) to Point B (House Address). I can't seem to get that, it's really frustrating me.

Entering in numbers in the Maps search bar with the E71 is easy - just use the shift key (lower left key) and then the number.
As far as directions, are you wanting voice-guided navigation or just to see the route from point A to point B? For voice-guided navigation, you have to buy a license for 30 days, 90 days, or one year (I think those are the only options any more).
To just see the route, go Options>Favorites (or Search)>My Places>select destination>select "Add to route". Then Options>Show route (if you have a navigation license, you can select "Start driving"). It will then calculate the route and show a view of the route on the map.
If you press the center button, you then have options such as "Preview route", "Start driving", etc. Preview route will take you through the route waypoint by waypoint by pressing Up or Down on the center button ring. There used to be a way to list the route turn by turn, but I don't think the latest version has that feature any more.
I have the one-year subscription but when I want to go somewhere, like to a destination and I have the address in hand, I just want to put it into the GPS and it will guide me to the destination.
I can't seem to find how to do that. I do Search > Addresses but when I input all the information into the fields it searches offline and then comes back with No Results Found.
All I want is to put a location (address) and have the GPS deliver me the infromation.
The search feature on Nokia Maps is definitely a weak point, especially if you're searching offline.
For the street name, sometimes it helps to just put in a partial name, leaving off the "Street", "Avenue", "Road", etc. part, dropping off any directional reference, or using only the first word in a multi-word name. This usually returns more than one option, and then you can select the correct one.
For numbered street names, you may need to try different things. For 3rd Street, for example, you may need to try "3", "3rd", "3RD", or "Third".
I get more success if I allow the program to search online. Some people use Google Maps to search for the address, save it as a Landmark in Google Maps, and then find the landmark in My Places with Nokia Maps. Google seems to have a better database (since it is also online) and doesn't get as confused over minor differences in spelling of the address.
Thanks a lot tncc01!
It's a pain having to go to Google Maps and set the location as a landmark then go to Nokia Maps and click the location in favorites then set the directions but as long as it works, then I'm happy!
Thank's once again, really appreciate it.
