Does anyone have tried installing Tomtom Navigator 6 on N73

Read an article that Tomtom Navigator 6 can be installed in Nokia N73. Tried copying the files to the memory, and was instructed to run the two cab files from install folder but tried running it and doesnt work. Does anyone know how to install Tomtom Navigator 6?

First of all, please don't double post, it won't get your question answered any quicker.

Second, if you're running a CAB file, then you're trying to install a WINDOWS MOBILE version of TomTom on a SYMBIAN/SERIES 60 phone. The software is not compatible! It's like trying to install an Apple application on Windows!

Thirdly, TomTom 6 is not yet available!

I thought the new version of tomtom was supposed to be an all in one package for pocket pc and mobiles?

I take it there is going to be two install packages built in then

Yes you are correct, TomTom6 is out but the only version that is currently available from sites is the one with the CAB install files for PDA's. I need one with the SIS installer for Nokia phone.

Or any info one where the files unpack to. if they are the same files as on the PDA i will unpack them to their respective locations but im sure there is some difference or these files would be there as well.

As stated by another forum user, the CAB files are only for use on Windows Mobile devices. Even if the extracted files are the same names as the Symbian equivalents the files simply will not work on a Symbian phone. It's the equivalent of asking an English-only speaking human to read a book written in a foreign language - it will never work.

Finally, searching Torrent or eMule will probably find what you are looking for - but remember this is (a) illegal, (b) TomTom support will not assist you with any problems (c) Future TomTom upgrades may not work on your phone, and (d) You have a 50/50 chance of infecting your phone with a Virus or Trojan using illegally downloaded s/w. Consider your next move carefully!

Hi All

Before I found this site the other day I mailed TomTom to ask if the N73 was compatible, and got a message back saying not so, so I will just have to wait till they release it for N73.

Regards
Tom

TomTom 6 IS compatible with the N73.

If you buy TT6 from TomTom's website, it WILL work.

Hi,

All that means is that TT have not tested the app with the N73.

I have seen it run on a friend's N73 and the 3D map rendering was FASTER on the N73 than on the N80.

Oh dear, what a shame. Hope that being a law abiding citizen doesn't hurt you too much.

Shame on you.
