Re: Nokia 5800 Car Navigation

Hi guys,

 

since a few days I had the same issue with my Nokia 5800 expressmusic. Whenever I wanted to start a navigation route, I received the following message: 'Car navigation cannot start at this location' Never had problems with navigation on my phone in the past. I have always kept my phone and maps up-to-date with Nokia Suite (Now at version 3.6.36). I solved the problem with selecting 'Assisted GPS' and 'Integrated GPS' and deselecting the other methods of positioning.

OK,

but assisted GPS will cost you for using your provider network.

Re: Nokia 5800 Car Navigation

I have tried Triplebee's workaround several times now but when i go to maps my possition is given in Lat Long but there is no map shown. I go to updates and it says my map is already downloaded. I delete it and reinstall it but then I get "Car navigation cannot start from this location". My download bill will easilly be the price of a new Garmin.

Re: Nokia 5800 Car Navigation

First I had the same issue, but when you copy other maps than you already downloaded from the 'faulty' ones, it will not work.

First you download the faulty country, then you delete 0 to f, then you copy the country 0 to f to your phone, then it works.

 

If you want to have multiple countries, you really have to put each file from each country in the right map 0 to f, and overwrite the larger file if there is a smaller already copied to a map. This is the hardest (longest) part.

 

It may not be all that clear, because you have to know what you're doing.

It worked for me, and it worked for many others, so I'm sure it will work for you, but maybe you're doing a little thing wrong?

 

Let's say you want Belgium and France. You start with map 0/0/***.cdt from Belgium, then you put 0/0/*****.cdt from France in the same map, if the size is the same, let it be. If the size is different, keep the largest. Then you move to 0/1/***.cdt, then 0/2/****.cdt until f/f/***.cdt. I did it like this because I have 8 countries. Then delete 0 to f from your phone, and copy 0 to f that you put a couple of minutes in to your phone and it will work.

 

I hope this is clearer for you? Otherwise, if anyone can explain it better, they may give it a try.

Re: Nokia 5800 Car Navigation

Hi,


I have avoided posting the link to the correct instructions for 00.02.45.103 version, since there is already

00.02.46.103 that is working fine.

 

Unpacking to the SD card works fine. I have downloaded the complete Europe maps and appropriate index files. If you still have not resolved your issue let me know, and I will send you the precise links. Mind that there may be someone who has already done this within this very topic.(I am out of time, so I could not read it whole).

 

Regards,

Moma

P.S. Love your Goethe quote, but I would suggest you to download the maps and indeces and then burn them to the DVD as a countermeasure when they remove the support for Symbian (e.g. delete maps that work!)

Re-installing the SAME (latest update) version that has the problem will not solve the issue. Read the posts above and follow the procedure for the work around till the Maps are fixed by Nokia ..

Re: Nokia 5800 Car Navigation

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".

@panorton

 

Did you delete E:\cities + .qf file, re-start Nokia Maps application to re-create necessary folder structure and drag desired data onto 0 - 9 and a - f folders devoid of data?

@ TripleBee & esax06 - These are no New Maps. If you have already updated to the latest version (which do not work in Offline mode)..this will Downgrade to the earlier working version .. Refer THIS

Re: Nokia 5800 Car Navigation

Nokia downgrades the maps back to 2.46. So this means that they know there's a problem. Now we just need the updated maps that work offline.

Re: Nokia 5800 Car Navigation

Hi guys,

 

is the problem of this ''car navigation cannot start at this location'' really really solved? I would like to know before I start downloading maps via wifi from the nokia server.

Many thanks in advance.

Provided that you follow instructions to delete Either E:\cities or F:\cities as appropriate + ,qf file then re-start Nokia Maps to re-define necessary folder structure and are happy to return to map 00.02.46.103 data. Why not just download the minimum state/region/country to re-assure yourself before wasting further bandwidth?

This is what I have already done and it is working, but what I meant with my question is: Have the Nokia people already fixed the problem with the version of 00.02.47.103 or not yet?
