If Maps running as background process is bothering you then you have choice of either re-booting device or installing NetQin MobileGuard to terminate process.

Could you retry from the developers website here : http://www.netqin.com/en/guard/download/

 

Select N8 from the menu and download it.

Re: Nokia n8 draining battery after recent service pack update in symbian anna

Re booting is nice option coz netqin make device slow performing & sluggish.But reboot evrytime is not feasible after using map once..n sure its draining battery.After reboot when maps are not in backround..battery works great as before anna recent update.

 

Hope any better solution is dere.

 

For now thanks for this reboot option u told.

It not the service pack mate, it the new Map 3.08 that comes with the OTA update. Or even worse, apparently 3.08 is embedded with the V25 firemware for N8.

 

You can read more of this problem here: /t5/Maps-Navigation-and-GPS/Nokia-maps-3-08-bug-app-runs-in-background/m-p/1235031

The only work around and provide if you don't have a V25 firmware: /t5/Maps-Navigation-and-GPS/Maps-3-08-how-to-roll-back-to-3-06/m-p/1235065#M38325

My Nok: Early Nokia brick -> 6110 -> 7110 -> 7250i -> 6131 -> 5800XM -> ? (701)
Partner's Nok: 8250 -> 6170 -> 5800XM -> N8
Along comes other Nok: Other earlier Nokia brick -> 8210 -> 6310 -> 5100 (rubbish) -> 6230 -> 5610XM -> 5233

Re: Nokia n8 draining battery after recent service pack update in symbian anna

All my Nokia N series phones that i have has very bad batteries.
My N8 doesnt last for more than 8 hours.
Is very difficult for me to try to find always chargers to charge my phone where ever i am.
Do something with the battery capacity cause 1.200mAh is not enough.
We need batteries with at least 2.400mAh if you can give us 3.600mAh that it will be perfect.
