    I'm surprised this lasted so long without some kind of response.

    The answer is no.

    nanonavi

    Anybody tried nanonavi? It's a j2me software works on Nokia S60 mobile phone. It can works with internal or external GPS. You need to sign in at website www.myrimis.com and then download the mobile phone software at www.myrimis.com/n. It's free to download. It does more then a normal map software on mobile phone. Other than local yourself. You can find your friends using the same software.

    This might be a few of the worst questions ever but im getting ready to purchase the Garmin Mobile XT and I see that it comes with a micro SD card. Soooo if I want to use my GPS I have to remove my current micro SD and put the Garmin one in everytime? Its just hard for me to believe that they would charge $99 for something that big of a pain in the arse. I'm hoping that I'm wrong in this. Please any info would be great before I spend the money

    IIRC, the way the Garmin software works is to lock the software to the card.

    HOWEVER, there is a way around that. There is a keygen available (MODS, bear with me) that allows you to generate a new file allowing you to move the software to a different card.

    This keygen is found on some of the 'other' Symbian forums, and i wouldn't normally suggest on HoFo that you use a keygen for software, but IMO this is a different situation. You have a legitimate version and just want to move it to a different card.

    I have unusually high gps boot times. Even with a internet connection it usually takes me 10+ min. Even then I get disconnected with the slightest phone movements.

    i cant go into detail here. but i use the hack to put garmin on any memory card i want. so right now i have it working with my n95 8GB internal memory. if you bought the program, i dont see the big deal.

    which n95 do you have? i am seeing 15 second lock times consistently. are your agps settings correct? you sure you have the slider open exposing the keypad? are you outside with clear line of sight to the sky? you should be testing with google maps because its free, super quick, and it shows the number of found satellites. use google maps to troubleshoot. then once its working correctly, garmin or nokia maps will work correctly too.

It will not show your actual movement along a highlighted route.
    This is a great thread. I just bought my very first cell phone (E51) after years of resisting so please bear with me . From what I've understood here, unless you have a subscription to the Nokia maps service you don't get navigation and it also doesn't track your position on the map even if you have a BT GPS receiver. Is that correct? Does this mean that getting an external GPS is a waste of money if you don't subscribe to the service (or install another mapping sotware) since it won't automatically tell you where you are?

    Without a subscription to Nokia Maps, what you get are these feature from it:
    - your current location on a map
    - the ability to search and show an address or some point of interest and show it on a map
    - you can get a complete map set on your device

    What you don't get are:
    - turn-by-turn navigation from point A to point B
    - corollary, no voice navigation ("turn left in 50 meters" etc)
    - I myself can't even get it to tell me *** an overview how to get from point A to point B.

    I invite others to add more to this list but those are the obvious ones to me.

    No, that is not correct. It will show your position and track your movement on the map. It just won't show you a "highlighted" route unless you are paying for the navigation feature. You will still see all the roads, road names, locations of restaurants, hotels, etc.

    - I myself can't even get it to tell me *** an overview how to get from point A to point B.
    I don't know why you can't get it to do this. My version (1.x) can do this without paying for the navigation feature:
    from any spot on the map select Options..Use this place..and then either Route from.. or Route to... In the next screen you then select a starting point or destination point, then Options..Show route. The program will calculate the route and show the turn-by-turn directions on the screen and the summary on a second tab.

    Select Options from this screen and you can select Show on map, Start navigation, or Start simulation.

    Show on map shows the highlighted route with the turn points numbered. Pressing the up direction on the d-ring will take you to the next point, re-orienting the map to the direction you would be travelling. Pressing the down direction on the d-ring will move you back to the previous point.

    Start simulation will play a simulation of you moving along the highlighted route on the map at a certain pace, and play the voice commands at the turns.

    Start navigation will start the voice-guided navigation that you have to pay for, showing the highlighted route, your actual position on the map along the route, and providing the voice commands as you approach turns, etc.
    From what else I have read on these forums, the 2.0 beta version can still do the same thing, but with a different procedure. I'm not using v2.0 beta (and probably won't until they officially release it), so I don't know what the differences are.

    There was an update to Maps 2.0 just completed. Anybody try it and notice any diff that I should try to update?
    Also what is involved in updating is it the same instructions as upgrading from the original? I dont want to screw up my paid license.
    Boh, chi si capisce é bravo e chi dorme non prende pesci!

    PRO = unlim min plan on Rogers mad seeg network

    Thanks Zlat, I'll check it out.

    I tried FAQ for your question but couldnt really discover what the diff really is.

    Thanks tncco1 and haritia. That clears things up. Now all I need to do is get a GPS receiver.
