Re: Google maps isn't working in symbian belle

[ Edited ]

For those who have updated to Belle FP1, is Google Map working for you?  If not, have you tried a full reset?  Settings > Phone Management > Factory Settings > Delete data and restore.  This worked for me before FP1, nothing else worked.  I have not updated to FP1.

 

Quick steps:

  1. Backup phone if needed
  2. Uninstall Google Map
  3. Full reset
  4. Resinstall Google Maps from m.google.com
  5. Keep Wifi & Data on
  6. Launch Google Map
  7. Worked for me before FP1. Don't know about FP1.

Dear all,

I recently purchased a Nokia pureview 808 with Symbian Belle platform. I was very disappointed to find that Google maps did not work. The wifi trick does not work too. However, i came across a older googlemaps 3.0.2 which apparently worked successfully on the normal GPRS.

Note: This version also has the layer and satellite functionality.

Cheers and best regards,

I tried wifi trick and hard resetting. None helped. Then installed an older version (not 3.0.1 but 3.2.1). It is working excellent, but your wifi has to be on while it is opening.

 

I'm attaching the file for you (thought the same can be found on ziddu also, try searching "googlemapsv321") http://www.ziddu.com/download/20666801/googlemapsV321.zip.html

Wish#2: Android type Video player, highly efficient player capable of playing all formats.
Wish#3: Without Google Maps (and products), no gadget is worth keeping.

Re: Google maps isn't working in symbian belle

For quite some time now I have written about my Nokia C7-00
frequently restarting. Has any one found how to solve this problem? I have tried Hard restart and I have also tried to re install the operating system (Symbian Belle) but it still freezes.

Re: Google maps isn't working in symbian belle

Hi all,

 

I experienced the same issue that originally started this thread after installing Symbian Belle. Google Maps didn't start when I was using Mobile Data connections (2G or 3G, it didn't matter). It only worked when using a Wifi connection.

 

Until one day, all of a sudden, it just started working! But only for five minutes! I was biking and trying to get back to the main road, so I just turned around and went back to the spot where I had been able to get the app started. And I was able to start it again! I looked around and I happened to be standing almost directly under an antenna (not sure what kind of antenna it was, I didn't care, the only thing that mattered was that I was able to find my way back to the trail).

 

I leave it up to you to draw your own conclusions.

 

Cheers.

Re: Google maps isn't working in symbian belle

Hi,

 

I have a Nokia E6-00 which originally came with Symbian Anna; I switched to Belle a couple of months ago. As you say, Google Maps (version 4.0.1- the latest as of Nov'12) does not work out of the box and throws up a blank screen/crashes. But as per the suggestion of one of the members here, I tried launching Google Maps with Wi-fi enabled and it worked just fine. You can switch off Wi-fi after the app is launched and it continues to work perfectly.

 

Google Maps comes with GPS search enabled and tries to lock on to a satellite signal which may not work well indoors, but this can be disabled quite easily.

 

Hope this helps.
