Problems with getting a GPS signal?

#33 Post by jamis » Wed Aug 06, 2008 9:19 pm

1. Did you DISABLE Assisted GPS (A-GPS)?

2. Does your mobile plan provides Internet access (e.g. GPRS)?

If not, then your E71 would take a loooooong time to get connected to the GPS. ;) Here's my comparison:

With A-GPS: 5 seconds
Without A-GPS: 6 minutes


But take note... using A-GPS costs money if your GPRS is not free of charge. It took me around 15 KB (total for upstream and downstream) for the initial connection setup.

I couldn't get the Garmin Mobile XT 4.20.00s60.9 to read out driving instruction when I drive along a designated route.

Can anyone get GMXT to read out instructions like "in 100 metres, turn left" on your E71?

I'm not sure if this problem lies with GMXT or Nokia E71 or the MalSingMap. :|

Thanks in advance.

in the first place did you install the voice pack?

secondly, please let us know which gps receiver you are using or which version of the gmxt sd card are you using before any replies from anyone here.

I am experiencing the same problem - GMXT 4.20.00s60.9, Map 2.28 Gold unlocked.

Here are some observations:

1. The voice packs are installed. (installed support files from Garmin's support site and Garmin\Voice\English_XXXX.VPM are there)
2. The voice prompt is working only when starting, calculating route, recalculating and reached destination, lost satellite signal.
3. The voice prompt is not working while navigating e.g. turn left in 100m, getting close to ERP gantries (no ding-ding).
4. While navigating, press the select key on the phone's 5 way navigation pad and it does read out the navigation.
5. All were working until I installed 4.2

Still figuring out what could have gone wrong. Worst case, revert back to 4.1X. :ko:

For those who has problems getting Garmin to work on your E71, try this:

I think somehow Nokia Maps maybe "blocking" the activation of GPS chip:

1. Start your Nokia maps and get a signal to navigate. Do this regardless if you have activated Nokia Maps.
2. Switch to Garmin (without quitting Nokia Maps) and activate Garmin GPS.

OR

1. Start your Nokia maps and get a signal to navigate.
2. Quit Nokia Maps and start Garmin.

Good luck!
