5230 ovi maps and phone restarting

Hi

I have had my 5230 since Dec and have tried to use the maps but with no success.  I have followed numerous instructions fron these forums again with no success.

 

My prob is that when i attempt to use the Ovimap, I get to the main menu and press Position the map shows for a couple of minutes, yellow bar at bottom blinks then phone restarts.

 

Any help would be great. Thanks

What is your phone's firmware? Check by *#0000#. The latest version available is V20.0.005 Get it update and you would probably have new version of maps and no problem with restarting issue.

Re: 5230 ovi maps and phone restarting

Try this:

1. Uninstall Ovi map 3.03
2. Delete the cities folder and qf file from memory card.
3. Reboot phone
4. Reinstall Ovi Maps 3.03
5. Open maps and wait a few minutes
6. Download maps from Maps Loader or Ovi Suite.

Hi and thanks for the advice.  Tried what you said and still the same thing happens.  I start maps and after about 30 secs the phone reboots.

I experence the same with the latest E72 f/w and after installing the offered ovi maps update.

Before it worked; now it reboots the phone.

 

I did reinstall ovi maps via ovi but that doesn't work. Haven't deleted the cities stuff as mentioned above; will ry that as well.

Re: 5230 ovi maps and phone restarting -- also on E72

I have an E72-2. This problem has been persistent without resolution. It is one of the reasons I will be selling this phone and not returning to Nokia. As basic phones they are great. I'm a smartphone person and these have fallen too far behind the competition. When basic functions don't work and there is little hope things will improve it is time to move on.
