The bars are used to signify cell service. If your GPS is having problems, verify there is a clear view of the sky from your device.

    Did you not think this is the solution? Some model phones will require you to put the back of the phone toward the GPS satellites when there's difficulty locating them.

I need a users manual for navmii gps navigation software For Windows


https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p/navmii/9nblggh10k57 = software.

Navmii used to have an old manual at http://www.navmii.net/bin/Navfree_UserGuide_v1.0.1.pdf
The link no longer works.
Here are some basics:
Basic Navfree Help
Navigation is easiest if locations are added to Favourites before navigating. To check a location before adding it to Favourites, or find a location near another location:
Tap Menu icon at bottom right of map screen. Tap Navigate on Main Menu. Tap Address or Google.
Type name to find. Done. Tap down-arrow beside item . Tap Show on map.
Check it is the correct place. If so tap down-arrow and Add to Favourites.
Or drag map to required location. Tap on map. Select Add to Favourites. Change name if required.
To enter a route from A to B, when A is not the current GPS location.
Need to disable GPS in Android Settings - Location.
Easiest if A and B are entered into Favourites. Use Google Search or Address to find names and descriptions, then Add to Favorites.
Then tap Navigate on Main Menu. Tap Favourites and select A.
Tap box with Favorites name in it, and select 'Route from Here'.
Tap Menu icon at bottom right of screen. Tap Navigate. Tap Favourites.
Tap 'Route here'. Tap 'Selected' (not Gps).
Tap 'My Route' to see Route on map.
To clear route: From Main Menu, tap Clear Route.
Cant edit or delete (sometimes) Favourites. Use Jota app . See forums.

Still looking for manual, there blog is very helpful which is the link above.

"GOOGLE SEARCH". When I enter a search address the results are wrong, I live and work at: "771 NW 23rd. St. Miami, FL 33127-4263", it shows as I live n work on NW 8th. Ave, which is wrong. Even the driven...


Hi,
sometimes Google Maps does not show your real location of your PC/laptop, because unlike smartphones they does not have GPS. So they show you most likely the address where servers of the internet provider are. You need to enter starting position every time.

I hope I understood your problem and this answer helped you.

Waiting for GPS comes up when I try to get directions, it never loads


what are you using for gps? ovi maps? garmin? google maps?

i suggest installing google maps to see if your gps is working alright.

then check in phone settings to ensure that gps positioning method is enabled for 'built-in gps' and 'assisted gps', thereafter check positioning server is set to 'supl.nokia.com'.

normal lock time is around 5-30seconds with E71 GPS with A-GPS on; anything more than that i'd attribute it to a faulty built-in gps unit.

let me know if it works.

My sgh-i617 gps is locked, to force you into downloading maps


Remove the battery for sometime and then reinsert it and power on the device. I do not know what maps you are using. I would recommend google maps v 3.2. Download it from maps.google.com or from m.google.com/maps.

Nokia E65 Navigator


You need an external GPS device with the E65, which it will access via bluetooth. It has the navigator software, but no internal GPS.
You can use google maps and that will use the GMS tower ID's to give you a rough location of where you are.

Tomtom 100yds off


I have seen this when entering addresses with a letter in them such as 3N124. The address does not enter correctly you will get the wrong address and location. I am trying to find
out if the tomtom supports this address. So far I have been told, NO, by Tomtom support person, but have a hard time believing this since a Magellian accepts this and works. However I have seen a Magellian get my location wrong. I believe the map needs updating. Check the location by view route and zoom in on the location, does the address equal the location that is off if it does it is most likely the map is the problem. If the location equals the address entered maybe the sound is off, stop before entering your home and check the location vs your location on the map. Check you map year, also have someone else check with their gps, might help.

GPS Use


Hye! here's how you can take care of this issue: Dowload google maps from the web (for windows mobile) & install it on your diamond. In order to use GPS on this phone, your internet/gprs connection must be functional; without netwrok connectivity you cant use GPS on this device as it does not have the map interface on its chip (& cant be loaded later too). It just has a light GPS transceiver which in presence of a mapping software (such as google maps) can show your position on the globe & in some countires can also navigate you. After installing google maps, make sure your internet connectivity is on and then work with google maps 'USE GPS' & 'My location' or 'Navigate' functions ... enjoy!
