Re: Gps on N8??

I don't know about the n8, but for other phones like your 5800 you can cut all connections and upload maps to your mass memory. - Then the map application will use the onloaded maps and everything will be free as long as you've disabled a-gps too (which almost costs nothing to use).


You can watch the tutorial video here: http://europe.nokia.com/support/download-software/nokia-ovi-suite/howto/get-new-maps-for-your-device

I'm not 100% sure if your n8 supports it as it is new, but it wouldn't hurt to try.

At least this is a place to start from:-)

Set your internet connection within maps to offline if that's a option within maps->settings.

Hopefully someone with an N8 will drop by and confirm wether the n8 supports this or not. Unless you want to try it yourself meanwhile. :smileywink:

From a quick look at the specsheet it says that N8 supports both ovi suite and maps, so to me it looks like it should work just fine. - Then your navigation should be totally free.

Re: Gps on N8??

thanks for your reply

i guess should be preloaded free from the factory

i have checked the settings

in the maps option it only gives

internet settings in ovi map:

connection: off line and

network destination: internet wap  multimedia which i have choose internet

 

at destinations

switch to wlan : manual

data use in home always ask (which is not asking nothing when i open web or wlan)

when roaming : wlan only

 

i will give a try to download manually the maps and the mean time i wil wait an other n8 user to let me know if there is bouild in gps like in 5800 where no maps was needed atol

thanks

Re: Gps on N8??

Your n8 has a gps chip. An you can use maps without preloading the maps, but then you will have to download as you go - which will cost money. To navigate free you will have to set connection to offline and turn off agps and install the maps u need from ovi suite.Or are you thinking about the location app which the 5800 had? in that case I cannot answer you regarding the n8.

Use ovi suite to install the prefered maps for free.

Re: Gps on N8??

In positioning-->Positioning methods

Keep only Integrated GPS selected..

Maps menu-->Spanner Icon-->Internet-->Connection-->OFFLINE

Maps menu-->Spanner Icon-->Synchonisation-->Manual

 

And there should not be any charge for GPS Navigation...
