Google maps for Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

Hi all,

I recently downloaded Google Maps on my Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. However, when I start the application on my phone, the connections fails to connect to the server. Has anyone faced this problem, or does anyone of you have any solution to this?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, try Options -> Tools -> Connections and select a working connection. It needs at least a data connection to download maps from Google unlike Nokia maps where the maps can be downloaded in advance.

I find that the maps are more detailed in Google compared to Nokia maps though and is more 'eye friendly'.

Cheers.

Hi Alex,

I did try that option as well. However, it is not working either.

The screen states: "Error: Bad status; 403".

Hey I have thesame Problem. Google Maps only works with Wifi @ home anymore, and when I try to change the Connection (Options/ tools/ change connection) it doesn't react anymore.

Also the Nokia Maps doesn't get any connection at all.

The Problems started by updating Google Maps, I have tried to reinstall Google Maps, but it wound work.


The Internet connection of my Phone work well, but just Google Maps/ Nokia Maps don't work.


Has someboby a solution.

A 403 error is "forbidden". Your phone company blocks Google Maps maybe?

Ok I've found the soloution: go to menu/settings/connectivity/destinations/internet mark your (mobile) network connection than press options/organise/change priority and put it on top.

 

Now Google Maps should work...

Thank you for finding a solution Google maps is excellent my friend and I had it on our Motorola V3x's. We have both just bought the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic and it is the best phone ever. Getting setup took a while but now we're having fun finding everything. :womanvery-happy:

Sorry to hijack but I have a related question.  Once google maps are installed can I access them and all their features without a data connection and free of charge?

Not that I know of.  You can use Nokia Maps and download the Maps while connected to the computer and then work offline.  Google Maps needs an active connection.

you dont have to choose any "mark your mobile option" after you enter destination.you just have to choose Internet option The path you have to follow is: Menu-Connectivity-Destinations-Internet After reaching here choose the mobile network you are using to access the internet and follow the procedure as given above
