I want to update my Navpix N40i Maps, how do I get about this, or is there a Phone Number where I can contact in order to update to current maps.


Navman won't make any more maps for this device. You can call them on 0871 277 0140, I believe they have an trade in offer towards a new Mio device

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.

N95 slow GPS


hey! i've found out no need to hack hardware or use a-gps. open GPS data in connectivity folder , look at satellite status and hold the phone far from your body. I always get lock in less than 1 minute. then exit GPS data and open nokiamaps. Garmin also locks faster than nokia maps, so i suspect the problem is in nokia maps sotware. I put GPS data icon in active stanby applications for quick launch.

Each map is locked to the unit serial number. The only way to get the map to work on another unit is to buy the maps and register the map serial number and you will receive a unlock code from garmin.

Go to the following link to unlock the map
