I want to use the gps and navigator on my nokia 5800 can you please help


The Nokia 5800 has a built-in GPS satellite navigation receiver, which can tell you where you are anywhere on the planet. The 5800 also has cell-tower-positioning technology, which finds your location using the position of the nearest phone network mast if a satellite signal is unavailable. GPS is more accurate but can take a while (from 10 seconds to a few minutes, depending on how obstructed the sky is) to find your position ('Assisted GPS' is also present, to download the expected GPS satellite positions from the Internet and help speed up your fix.)
The 5800 also has a built-in mapping application called Nokia Maps, which shows you your location on a street map, tells you exactly how to get to another location by driving or walking, and can give details of nearby amenities such as shops, fuel stations, museums, etc. Nokia Maps uses both GPS and cell tower positioning to tell you where you are: the latter gives an instant rough position, while GPS data is used after the phone has locked onto enough satellite signals calculate its position. You'll know the phone is locked onto a satelite as the lock indicator at the bottom of the screen will turn green.

Other phone applications can also use the GPS receiver if required. For example the camera application can optionally "geotag" photos with your current location using the GPS receiver to work out where you are (click here to see our camera tutorial and find out more about geotagging). If you switch to the standby or menu screens while an application is using the GPS receiver, you'll see a little satellite icon in the top right corner of the screen to indicate that GPS is active.

How does the 5800's GPS work? Like all satellite navigation systems, the 5800 receives signals from many different GPS satellites in the sky, and calculates your position based on those signals, using a combination of triangulation, signal delay calculation and a lot of very heavy maths that you really don't want to know about.

Important Note: Satellite signals cannot penetrate buildings, so GPS satellite signals will be difficult or impossible to receive if you are indoors and away from windows. If you want to speed up the process of GPS showing your location, take the phone outside or place the phone next to a large window with a good view of the sky.

The 5800's GPS aerial is inside the top left side of the phone. If you want to get a good GPS lock make sure this part of the phone is uncovered

HTC Hero GPS


try downloading GPS Essentials (free) from the market. It has a tab that shows how many satellites the phone is picking up. that usually is what determines the gps accuracy. also remember that the antenna is at the bottom of the phone. right where your hand holds it. This should not affect it but is good to know.

After changing 2 or 3 battries phone still running 3 hours with full charging


You'll have gathered by now that the Nokia N95's battery is a little on the slim side, considering the amount of high-tech goodies it's got to power. Here are a few tips to last longer on your daily charge:
  • Firstly, make damn sure you do charge the N95 each night, so at least it's starting the day on 'full'
  • The Camera is the single biggest power drain. While waiting to take shots or shoot a video clip, don't keep the camera with a 'live' viewfinder - better to close it down and then open it again just before you actually need to take the shot/clip. And if you're going to an event where you know you'll be using the camera/camcorder a lot, consider taking along a spare battery or portable charger
  • Keep WLAN scanning off, you can always scan manually if needed, or turn it back on
  • Unless you know you're going to be staying in an area with good 3G signal and you know you have a 3G SIM card, go into 'Tools | Settings | Phone | Network' and change 'Network mode' to 'GSM' - this will stop the N95 hunting for 3G signals, expending large amounts of power switching cells and holding on to weak mast locks.
  • Watch what applications you leave running in the background - some games and Java applications are especially processor hungry, even when paused!
  • When using the N95 as a navigator in car, with display and GPS both active, do yourself a favour and buy a $10 12V adapter/charger, so that instead of draining the battery at a rate of knots you're actually gaining extra charge.

GPS for china mobile


For china mobiles manuals, software and drivers check chinamanuals.com (check for CECT N95)
I don´t think there is a GPS available, because the N95 does not support java.
