N95 8GB Nokia Maps not working

Hi,

I have just a N95 8gb. I have not been able to get nokia maps to work properly. it works up to the point of asking it to navigate somewhere, then when it has acquired a signal from the satellites it closes down.

I have down loaded the latest map software from nokia and upgraded the firmware today.

Any suggestions?

Cheers

If you're having problems with the application closing down, licenses will have nothing to do with this problem. It's going to be more of a matter of either reinstalling the map application and/or making a backup of your content with pc suite and formatting the phone, using *#7370# to get the maps application working properly.

You can then update any licenses you may have and also re update the map application.

i think i have reformatted the phone today...did a debrand on it, i think that has the same effect. First thing i tried after that was nokia maps, and it crashed as soon as it has acquired a signal, and started to navigate.

What do i need a licence for? i thought it was free?

Cheers

update.....

it seems that the update i did for maps did not take.

just reformatted as described in the post above, and then reapplied the update I downloaded and maps looks completely different.

I still don't know if the navigation works because i have to buy a licence. I will buy one and play tomorrow.

Cheers

If what you're after is routing then it might be cheaper for you to buy a 3rd party app like Route66 - a non-time limited license for the Western Europe edition costs less than a 12 month license for Nokia maps.

Update again.

Brought a 30 day licence for navigation and it worked.

Not impressed though. Satelitte reciever does not give a great signal in the car. kept on swinging around and rotating the map.

Drove to a round about with 3 exits + my entrance, the map was showing to drive off the second exit, the voice told me to take the first exit!

deliberatly went off route and it took 1 mile before deciding to recalculate my route...it suck big time for navigation, especially when you factor in the cost...


Rant over...back to TomTom or Garmin ;-)

Thanks for your assistance by the way
