I've just bought a copy of XT and first impressions are pretty good... apart from one thing:

How do you change the Access Point it uses to get Traffic etc data ?

The first time I connected it asked for an Access Point as you'd expect but now I can't find any option in the menu to change it once I'd selected it.

Anyone know where the option is, or have Garmin messed up and forgotten it ?

(This is in version 4.10.60s60.9 - Garmin really could do with improving the upgrade instructions as well - I thought I was going to have to return the SD card to them when the software started reporting a Security Error after installing the upgrade, until I managed to find instructions on where to find the .sis file that needs running manually)

--EDIT--

Aha - Reinstalled 4.10.60 and it's working again now... no idea what happened there but it's working so I won't complain.

I find with the volume even at 100%, with UK-English and my windows down I can hardly hear the instructions either (windows up and music off is just fine, windows up and music on is maybe/maybe not hear dependending on the music and volume). I thought "Let's try US English, because you know what they say about the yanks" but it isn't any better.
Regards

Dont let it detect it, it doesnt for some stupid reason.

Cancel the detection, and then go to -

settings - system - GPS (it might be 'remote GPS, or another name, but it will be no1 in the list)

You will see that 'Use Attached/Built-in GPS' as an option. Enable that and do 'done'.

Should be fine now.

Hi,
under remote gps it says
"connection allowed to garmin gps devices only"
and the option is "Pair New GPS"

perhaps i have the wrong version..it says garmin xt and installed ok
i will have to play some more.

You have the unregistered version. You need the full legal version from Garmin.

Does anyone know what file I have to delete to get rid of that damned garmin auto launch?

I use my phone in data transfer mode a lot, and everytime I take the cable out (or swap mem cards) it wants to startup.

What file is it, and can I delete it without affecting the program at all?

I have found the same problem with GM XT, the map redraw and frame rate is very slow at times and lags well behind the actual position of the car.

I have experimented with different map settings and zoom levels and found that it is a touch faster with the map on low detail settings. But even then there is still lag.

Ive been spoiled I suppose by Tom tom. But I am persevering with GM XT as I really like having everything in one unit.

Interestingly I have tried Sygic Drive and the map redraw is very quick, but the rest of it is a bit cr@p, and it has the feel of a beta.

What nokia firmware are you running? I found that the gps updated slowly with v10 on my N95 8gb, but it updates and finds signals alot quicker with v11. Worth a thought?

V20 N95-1

I get a good gps signal in seconds flat whatever gps dependant application I am running, even indoors near a window. So no problems there I am very happy with that.

I think it is just the redraw rate with GM XT, that why I mentioned Sygic as this uses the internal gps too, but the redraw and frame rate are as good as TT if not faster by a touch.

The GM XT user manual even says that using more detail on the map slows redraw

I have reduced the map detail so I can live with it.

Hi guys,
Can anyone please explain to me how to step-by-step install Sygic on my Nokia N95 8GB?
I've actually been trying to install it for a few days now but it did not help at all so far! :(
Where do I have to place the folder 'Sygic' (a folder I created myself that contains the file Sygic.sis) and the folder MEMCARD? Is it on the phone memory (small one) or the storage memory (big one)?
And how do I have to transfer the aboved mentioned folders from my PC to my mobile? I've actually tried Nokia PC Suite File Manager without success!
I always get the following message 'Access Denied'!
Pleaaaaase help!
Many thanks in advance!
peteriiino
