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.

How do i set up traffic mode


The traffic mode of this device comes up as a radio station that tell you how the traffic in some areas are. The traffic receiver is integrated in the vehicles power cable. You will need some components to set it up. You will need
  1. mini USB connector,
  2. External antenna connector,
  3. Internal antenna,
  4. Vehicle power adapter.
Once you connect these components together, your gps will be able to receive information on traffic. Then you connect it to your gps device, once there is traffic anywhere around your area, the gps receives an information. A traffic icon appears on the upper left corner of the map page. The traffic icon changes color to indicate the severity of traffic conditions on your route or the road you are currently driving on.

How can i use gps in my phone?


When you run OVI Maps on the 5230, the GPS will be activated. You'll have to wait till the GPS receives signals from at least 4 satellites to get a "fix" or "lock" This can take some time depending on where you are. Using A-GPS is an advantage for a faster fix. Read the English manual on page 95 about GPS.http://europe.nokia.com/support/product-support/5230/guides




If you want to use navigation on your nokia 5230 then you need some setting that is neccessary for the navigation on you phone. It is stated as first of all you need to set the internet on your phone through your operator and then do the following setting on your phone
1. Go to the Menu.
2. Select Menu > Maps.
3. Select Options > Tools > Settings > Internet

Just set the following setting in your navigation application

* Go online at start-up: Please set the device to open an internet connection when you open Maps.
* Default access point or Network destination: Select the access point to be used when connecting to the internet.
* Roaming warning: Set the device to notify you when registering to a network other than your home network.

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

I want to know how to use the GPS


what part of the gps system do you want to use

nokia maps?
gps data?
nokia sports tracker?
google maps?

all these apps use gps but to get the most out of them you need internet on your phone but they are not neccersary but having it makes your expriance so much better

firstly go outside and go to gps data and it should search for satalights if you go to posistioning then click options then satelight status this will show the signal and lock of satelights
the bars shows the signal quality the more of the bar better signal but when they become solid coloured in that means that the phone has locked to the satelight

once the phone connects to several staelights then under positioning your posistional information is given

then you can go to the sevreal maps aplications

all the maps apps work better when you are moving they are not accurate when you are not moving

nokia maps is free for a year then you have to pay
google maps is free
both of these are navigation apps

sports tracker is a app that tracks your movements on a map which is pritty cool

using the apps is pritty simple and you learn to use it quickly

aalso the more you use the gps the quicker the gps finds your location the first time will take a minuite or so

Is it possible to track a stolen GPS with the serial number?


Garmin has a large hard drive with all the points of interest inside the device.
All the device does is read the GPS coordinates that are broadcasted by the GPS satellites and processes data based on what it receives. It doesn't need to send any information to a central server.
If GPS was able to communicate two ways, there wouldn't be a need to purchase map upgrades for new roads, points of interest, etc...
I just got my Garmin stolen within the past 23 hours, and as much as I wish there was a way, there isn't...
