Question about Nokia N500 Auto Navigation

Nokia 500 GPS won't navigate

All the features on my Nokia 500 seem to work fine, except the Navigator. When i start the unit, it stays on the splash screen, unless I choose one of the other features from the menu. If I choose Navigator, nothing happens. Any ideas? I have tried, reset, reset to factory default, let the battery die, and reinstalled the maps from the cd already.

The same exact problem happened to me. Go to the Nokia website, download their software update wizard and follow the instruction. It will flash the unit and fix the issue.

Nokia navigator suddenly cannot find any satellites


Did you disabled the data plan? If the A-GPS is disabled or not working then it takes quite some time for Nokia to detect the sat.
If you stay stationary for few minutes then the lock will happen.

The navigator 6710 won't work as a phone only the navigation switches on. When you switch it on the screen does not show the menu or the contacts. Noen of the keys work except the start for navigation.


amazingly the auto zoom in out is not a software problem.. it's hardware problem nd that's is why nokia is not getting in to help as its gonna cost it alot. the problem is that the upper portion has become touch sensitive. the acceot key , hang up key,the two selection keys and the navigation keys are made touch sensitive "delibrately" or intensionly.

How to use Route 66 GPS set-up in nokia 6210 phone. Have tried many times with no success. Very annoying. ta Bill


I think Route 66 was used in Navigator 6110 Navigator only and it was linked with phones IMEI code. The 6210 Navigator is equipped with Nokia Maps 2.0 and Route 66 isn't compatible I think.

Navigator on my nokia 500 doesn't work


Good news for users with the same problem- The solution is easier than you think :-)
When my Nokia 500 began to show the same issues that you mention here I quickly thought "What a waste of money and now here I am stuck with this useless device" but a little bit of research helped me find the solution; here you go:

Go to https://www.nokiausa.com/get-support-and-software/product-support/nokia-500 and follow the instructions there. Basically what you will be doing is to re-install (in some cases update) the software in your device. Once the process is finished, Viola! your GPS function will be restored (-;
Now, be aware that ALL your saved addresses will be gone, but I rather have that, than a GPS that is good for nothing.

Hope that helps guys!

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.

You hopefully have the mobile navigator software CD that came with the GPS unit. Copy the entire folder and contents of the CD to your SD card (make sure you make a full backup copy of the exisiting software on the SD card first).
