Ovi maps on Nokia 5230

Hi all, I have a nice, shiny new 5230 and have a quick question. Is there a way of using Ovi maps without the phone connecting to the internet everytime? I thought I had disabled the connection, but it just connects up every time I open maps. Thanks

Yes, turn off A-GPS and network positioning and use only integrated GPS. You get fixes slower though and less accurate.

 

Go to Menu>Apps>Location>Position>Positioning Settings and untick everything except for integrated GPS.

Re: Ovi maps on Nokia 5230 navigation without connecting to the net possible?

After starting a route on any map I am asked whether I want an internet connection to the shop which I do not want. Although I made any connection impossible (hopefully) because I want a free of charge navigation - may it be not as precise as possible - the message still appears and after anwering - no - the blue route disappears. Question: What did I do wrong or what settings do I have to set?  The answer in Re: Ovi maps on Nokia 5230 from 10-Apr- 2010 did not help. Also there is no >Apps>Location>Position  path on my 5230.

You don't have the free version of maps. You need to update to 3.03.

Depends on your definition of accurate. GPS accuracy can be affected by atmospheric conditions. weather, obstacles etc, and all this before you consider the innacuracies designed ionto the system. While I would not use it to survey a property, most of the time, it is accurate enough for it's intended purpose, which is navigation.
