Re: Navigation Cannot Start from this location. ERROR ...

Boo hoo hoo. My N8 still can't navigate in offline mode. As soon as I turn off data the phone gives this message- car navigation cannot start from this location. That means data charges when I'm on holidays. Boo hoo hoo.

Re: Navigation Cannot Start from this location. ERROR ...

It's definately an update issue. My wife just updated her maps 3.06 on her X6 and is now getting the same error. Anyone want to buy an X6 and a N8?

Re: Navigation Cannot Start from this location. ERROR ...

I too have just been experiencing the error 'Navigation cannot start from this location' when I enter a drive destination into the mapping app on my N8 phone. This has just happened since downloading the latest update 3.06  00.02.47.103 release date 17.12.2012. Also, if I enter a walk destination the error 'location not found' occurs. If I change the internet setting on the phone to 'online' the system does work. I wonder why Nokia are no longer allowing navigation in offline mode or is it just a glitch in the latest update?

Re: Navigation Cannot Start from this location. ERROR ...

I just found an alternative to the latest 'error' with Maps 3.06. The only way to make it work in offline mode is to uninstall Nokia Maps and Ovi Maps, and then open Maps in the menu and it will ask you to delete the 'old data maps'. Then only press Yes and connect the phone to Nokia Suite and download maps (it's going to be older maps, they are smaller).

Re: Navigation Cannot Start from this location. ERROR ...

hi, what I did was - downloaded maps I need to my Nokia 500 - via wifi or via ovi suite - even the new erroneous version of maps. Then I have downloaded old maps 00.02.46.103 (new version is 00.02.47.103), I have downloaded the same countries I had in my phone already. I kept the new version of maps (cities etc folder) on my memory card and simply copied the old version over it. It worked, no data connection needed anymore for drive navigation. Tested with my new zealand map today. Map app in phone still says it has new version of maps. No need to change indexes etc, its already there from new map version.

URL for download of old maps for NOkia 500, maps v 3.06 is

http://static.maploader.maps.svc.ovi.com/map5/maploaderzip-00.02.46.103/10320.zip 

where the last part after the slash you replace with relevant country code - to be find in this pdf 

http://discussions.nokia.com/discussions/attachments/discussions/navigation/40455/1/catalog-00.02.46...

I hope it will work for you as well

Re: Navigation Cannot Start from this location. ERROR ...

Hi, It worked for me on Nokia X6-00. Thanks.
Hope that we will not get stuck with the 02.46.103 version of maps for ever and that this was only a glitch.

Re: Navigation Cannot Start from this location. ERROR ...

Thanks leninoc, that works for me and my 5230 with Australian maps.  Well done.  

As for you, Nokia, snafus like this fail to impress.  May the fleas of a thousand camels nest in your armpits until you issue a map update that works in both online and offline modes.

Re: Navigation Cannot Start from this location. ERROR ...

I downloaded the zip file.  I copied the contents of the zip file over to my phone: cities\diskcache.

I restarted Maps and offline still doesn't work.  What am I doing wrong?

Re: Navigation Cannot Start from this location. ERROR ...

Since updating my dutchmaps give C6 the following error when a destination is selected, "car navigation can not start at this location '.

All cards have been removed and re-insert again but it gives the same error again.

If you read all the posts above..there are some work around suggested that you may try till the time the issue is resolved by Nokia.. .

I've tried this workaround on both an X6 and an N8 and neither worked.

Re: Navigation Cannot Start from this location. ERROR ...

I'm in the Rep. of ireland so I download the 10320 zip files from here. http://static.maploader.maps.svc.ovi.com/map5/maploaderzip-00.02.46.103/103211.zip . I save them to desktop and extract them. I have tried deleting the files in /mass memory/cities/diskcache. 0-f and overwriting them with the new files and also merging the two sets of files  but the result is the same "car navigation cannot start from this location".

Re: Navigation Cannot Start from this location. ERROR ...

The map data for Maps 3.06 has now been downgraded in the servers back to 0.2.46.103 to avoid the problem with offline navigation.If you have already updated the map data to 0.2.47.103, you can downgrade by deleting "cities" folder and "qf" file and then re-downloading the map data again.

Please see the thread below for more details:

Nokia Symbian Maps 3.06 and map data version 0.2.47.103

Re: Navigation Cannot Start from this location. ERROR ...

The new "old" version downloaded maps works again on the phone. Just hope Nokia comes quickly with a good update with all new streets.

as a volunteer in a rapid responder team (CPR) with several small new residential areas in our region would be very useful. . . these new streets were already mentioned in the bug version.

I agree, I have had no joy from Nokia 'experts' at all, we speak a different language.
