Hi guys,

I have a Nokia N78 running Garmin XT v5.

I love it when it's working, but probably... two thirds of the time I try to find directions it'll bring up a dialogue saying "Awaiting better GPS reception..." and freeze up for anywhere between 10 and 20 minutes when it'll suddenly start working.

Really confused as to why it's doing it, once it's working it's fantastic, but this kind of makes it a bit useless, shame as one of the main appeals of the N78 was using it as a SatNav for when I haven't got my TomTom with me.

Any advice would be great, thanks!

The maps are all far too large to install into phone memory.

In any event, best practice is to install all apps (where possiblt) to memory card to keep as much phone memory free as possible.

I agree with you that it´s best practice to keep the phone´s memory as clean as possible,but I meant that the application should be in the phone´s memory and the maps should be on the memory card.Because every time I use my N95 in Mass Storage mode and I disconnect it from the computer the phone asks that "Garmin Mobile XT was found.Would you like to run it?"

Most of nokia mobiles have a very weak GPS receiver(cheap stuff).My advice:get a bluetooth GPS from ebay around £20,which is faster,stronger signal,fast start,more satellites at one time etc.

I know that's annoying but it's still more important to keep phone memory usage as low as possible.
Garmin don't offer the internal memory install option, so you'l have to put up with it as is.

Installed Garmin XT on my N95 8GB last night, it works a treat.

Everytime I turn on my garmin mobile xt it uses my gprs/3g data connection. Garmin online is disabled. Anyone has this problem? A solution maybe? I'm using Nokia 5800 XM

You have AGPS setup in the phone settings to speed up satellite lock up with GPS. That is a good thing, it is only about 4 or 5kbytes of data and with it turned off can sometimes mean it takes 20mins to get lock onto enough satellites to give you a position!

Thanks for the info. I didn't know about this. The problem is that i've been using it abroad on roaming and the phone bill is high as hell!

I agree that is quite annoying. However, I don't think it's a good enough reason to use up over 10MB of precious Phone Memory to store the app.
