E6 - Garmin XT

Yes, i am aware of the free choice of Ovi Maps, but still I'm used to Garmin navigation on my E series.

 

I just got an E6, and i've installed the latest 5.00.50 Garmin. It does work, but the screen for navigation is duplicated? Does anyone know how to fix that?

Re: E6 - Garmin XT

I GUESS (means I don't know for sure) that the Garmin SW does not yet support the higher screen resolution of the E6 (at least that is what it looks like to me) - the E6's screen is the first one with a 680x480 resolution, all the other Symbians before the E6 had lower resolution if my information is correct. In this case, you will have to get back to Garmin and ask if and when they will support the E6.

Which they probably won't support, because the last update from their sde was in 2009...

 

Guess it's hard to compete with free nokia maps.

Look in google for 5.00.60 update, that patch solves the problem of "broken map".

You are wrong. Garmin 5.00.60 solves nothing in terms of split screen problem in Nokia E6.

Re: E6 - Garmin XT

well, the fact is Garmin 5.00.60 did solve the broken screen on my E7.

yeah, 5.00.50 version is giving me the above screenshot.

In the absence of Garmin support, just to clarify that version in this screenshot does NOT give split screen upon E7 running Symbian Anna:

Re: E6 - Garmin XT

E6 has a higher screen resolution than E7 and any other Nokia phone. Hence, Garmin doesn't give you a split screen on those phone. For E6, it does.

Unfortunately there appears no solution to this issue, as this old application never envisaged a change in available screen resolutions!

Re: E6 - Garmin XT

It seems that Garmin Mobile XT is not that flexible when it comes to display resolution. I remember nav'n'go IGO, for other platforms, has this kind of tweak, where we can set the resolution in a text file (if it has, of course, the requested resolution files).

 

Too bad Garmin is not working on E6, I'm using it on my older E66 and it works great, the most complete map for my country (Romania).

Re: E6 - Garmin XT

Hi there I finaly found a work arround for E6 and XT, its not the happiest thing but at least it work fine, the only way to make that it works is disable 3D navegation map, so it means that you can change the map view to follow path or north on top, it will show just what your resolution can support and 2 grey lines on both map sides, at least it works....
