NOkia 5230 with Garmin Mobile Xt - need help

#154 Post by abah2k4 » Mon Nov 01, 2010 8:39 am

Hi, I am new here. I just bought a Nokia 5230 which has Garvin Mobile XT installed. I bought this phone to help me getting my way home. I am a 60 yr old pensioner and have memory problem. I sometimes lost my way home and have someone to help me. So I want to use this phone with GPS to help me. I do not know the map in my phone is up to date. If not I wish to get an up to date Malaysia map.
I live in Muar Johor.
I hope to get some help here.
Thank you

I believe the phone you purchased is a 2nd hand one cos new phone will not come with GARMIN mobile XT installed.
To check the details of your maps, open your GMXT, then go to Tools ->manage my data ->map sets ->detailed maps ->storage card.
Hope this help.

Hi Abah, that map is quite outdated. To update your map, download this map file in Zip: http://www.malsingmaps.com/forums/viewt ... 19#p181719

Next, unzip the downloaded file, and replace GMAPSUPP.IMG in GMXT's data card:\Garmin folder with the extracted GMAPSUPP.IMG. Thereafter, verify at Map Sets that the map is correctly installed.

You're welcome.

If you're using Win XP version or later, there is built-in Zip support. Thus you can just extract the Zip without having to install WinZip or similar utility.
