Re: 5530 & nokia maps

have a look here, managed to get nokia to answer...

 

/discussions/board/message?board.id=navigation&message.id=16416&jump=true

 

Basically, At this point the forums staff do not know if support will be added as the only information they have is what is available to us.

 

For the 6210, N95, N85, etc... , owners - looks like you either wait it out in the (presumably erroneous) hope that Nokia will support your phone eventually.

 

They can't say anything more.

Re: 5530 & nokia maps

OK. To follow up on my recent post - I have used the 5530 to Navigate from A to B using the free turn-by-turn voice guidance...

It all works!

 

 

 

In reply to the post regarding the GPS module. Since the 5530 doesn't have an onboard GPS receiver chip - Yes, you do need to buy a Bluetooth enabled GPS receiver/module. There are a few keychain GPS modules out there now, but if you want to use a Nokia GPS module, then search for "Nokia Bluetooth GPS Module LD-4W". Some stockists might have the older (cheaper) version of this, which is the "LD-3W". I bought my LD-3W second hand from eBay.

It's very simple to use: Charge it up. Pair it with the handset (Bluetooth). Let it get a satellite fix (takes <1min.) and open Ovi Maps. It should be ready to navigate/show your position!

Re: 5530 & nokia maps

Virtually any Bluetooth GPS will work with the 5530 I have a Nokia LD-4W and an old Bluetooth GPS that has no makers ID.

 

Both work with the 5530, however...

 

I use a Bluetooth motorcycle helmet so I can listen to music and get voice directions from the 5530, this works fine with the old Bluetooth GPS, eg both the helmet and the GPS pair with the phone at the same time. This works perfectly.

 

With the Nokia LD-4W it seems that it can be the only Bluetooth device connected to the 5530, if I connect the helmet the map fails to update correctly and the audio to the helmet is choppy.

 

I have also read that the LD-4W can have issues with other devices, so you are probably better off getting something other than the LD-4W if you want to use the 5530 with other Bluetooth devices at the same time.

 

 

 

Using OVI maps, I have found that if you swipe across the screen (when navigating) you can get to a screen that shows your full route and one that shows the next turn and distance to it.

Re: 5530 & nokia maps

My mistake was I never read that it didn't work :smileywink:

 

I paired it under bt devices as normal, then went in to "location" not "maps" and setup the phone to use bluetooth.

 

Don't think I had to do anything else.

 

Did use it with headphones for navigation on foot and it worked, but as I said it made the audio choppy if using it at same time as other bt device (eg my crash helmet or bt headphones)

Re: 5530 & nokia maps

Does this Bluetooth GPS module actually create or make a 3G connection from the satellilte. If it does create a 3G connection, then can i connect to the internet with a 3G connection. If this does not create or make a 3G connection then  does anyone know how to get a 3G connection with the Nokia 5530.

 

Kind Regards

Re: 5530 & nokia maps

Not possible with any device to get 3G in that way.

 

With the 5530 to get 3G the best way is something like the MiFi http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/10/14/me_and_my_mifi/

Re: 5530 & nokia maps

If you are trying to connect to the internet bt WiFi from the maps application for some reason it will not work unless you have your bluetooth gps on at the same time.

@rce24:

 

Fantastic!

 

I had Nokia Maps 3.01 installed on my 5530 and the version you posted, maps_installer_3.03_10wk1_b05_s60_5.0.Nocs.sis, is the first version of Ovi Maps that I managed to install. It is by far much better than Nokia Maps 3.01!

 

Thank you very much for sharing this.

 

Best regards!
