I thought this was a brilliant deal, although it was a pain to set up on my Nokia N73 (took me a good couple hours to get around the phone not accepting the RS-MMC memory card) once it's up and running it is sheer quality.

I am a newbie here but I felt it would be almost a crime not to report a deal this good on here, having got a good couple of bargains off this site before.

But please please please check the compatibility with your mobile here: http://www.navicoretech.com/Consumer/Support/Compatibility/2006/en_GB/2006/

and keep in mind even if your phone is on there, this deal refers only to the RS-MMC memory card version. So (as in the case of my Nokia N73 that only takes SD memory cards) you may need to go to their download site (https://shop.wayfinder.com/downloads.php) and use the licence key that comes in the box to download a program that will let you install the program onto another memory card of your choice, provided you have the appropriate memory card reader in your computer of course.

Just to underline again the fact that this was a bit of a pain to install, I doubt it will be the same for all phones. But if you're willing to take that chance then you will likely be rewarded with a top-notch GPS system for a fraction of the price you'd expect :)

the choice is yours...

#7

Why so cheap ??????

I'v been using Navicore with my Nokia 770 for about a year and it works really well. There is an updated version available for download from the Navicore site with updated 2008 maps (requires you to input your licence code to get the update, was free for my device/version but might not be for all).

It does use POI and you can convert any TomTom POI for use with a free utility available on the Navicore site. Quality bit of software uses TeleAtlas maps. It does come as standard with a selection of POI including speed cameras.

Assume this will only work on Nokias with external memory cards? Is there a workaround, for example, that allows it to run on a Nokia N95 8GB?

I thought that came with GPS?

Navigation on the internal maps is a paid subscription service.

Other software like TomTom 6 for S60 is unable to use the internal GPS.

Route66 can use the internal GPS.

The internal GPS on the N95 is not that hot on its own and it is useful to have a bluetooth GPS receiver that can go under the windscreen in a car.

The N95 GPS can work quite well when in AGPS mode, but that uses network data and if you are not on a data plan then it costs.

This deal is for a Sirf Star III gps receiver and is therefore mega-hot. I'm annoyed that I just paid £18 for a rubbish Antaris one when I could have got this.

The OP says that with the supplied license keys you can download to a memory card of your choice. I think this would include the internal 8GB on the N95-3 if you just connect by USB in data storage mode.

You can use tomtom 6 on a N95 using the internal GPS, just need to download the patch. (Available from download sites)

Hi mate
are you sure about that?
i have the tom tom 6 and i had to use an external bluuetooth reciever to get the tom tom to work.
also if i already have tom tom 6 on my fone would this b/t reciever work with it?
can u pm me a the site u d/l the patch from.

many thanks

"I've got the same phone how did you get around the problem, can you not just copy the maps o nto a new card?"

copying the files didn't seem to work for some reason, on my nokia n73 this is what i needed to do:


1. go to the navicore website (mentioned in the OP) to get the card installation software (using the licence key at the back of the navicore manual)

2. plug in my sd card (the one i use anyway, no need to buy a new one just for navicore) into the computer and then run the navicore install program that was downloaded

3. select "generic series 60 v3" and let it do the install onto your memory card

4. open nokia pc suite and run the software installer program, selecting the navicore.SIS file that was placed onto your memory card

5. smile never needing to remember directions again :)


originally i tried to install navicore using the app manager on my phone, but that resulted in it installing an icon that wouldn't do anything except give me a blank screen for a few seconds. i think this is because the program needs to be installed onto the phone memory rather than a memory card. and it seemed the only way to do this was to use nokia pc suite (which can incidently be downloaded from nokia if you've lost the cd)

i hope that makes sense, that is how i got it to run on my phone. i'm not the most gifted with mobile phones so there may well be a far easier way of doing it. so just remember - if your phone doesn't take RS-MMC cards, you may have a small battle on your hands.

Yes this patch has been out for a few weeks but is a right ball ache to install and I find that Garmin XT Mobile works as good as TomTom and that uses the internal gps with no messing about. Do a search on google for:

binpda tomtom gps patch

Yes bit of messing about but as only use it now and again not a problem, wouldn't use this if I had to use it every day.

Tomtom works perfectly well with the internal gps on an N95 its a simple 3 step process which takes less than 2 minutes, been running on my n95 for a few days now without a problem,i used to use Garmin XT which also runs on the N95 using internal GPS, if you need help feel free to PM me, ive helped a few members on here now to get it up and running correctly.

Yes, its just you have to select the internal gps every time you start tomtom unless there is something you know that I dont?
#20
No m8 your right there but thats not much of a problem as it only takes 3-4 keypresses i know binpda are working on that though as we speak , but just offering some freebie help to any that need it, dont have to change any settings with Garmin XT though and its just as good as Tomtom. And nice to get a reply from someone with some knowledge instead of the usual NO IT Doesnt remark. :thumbsup:

Was just checking that things hadn't moved on and I'd missed it! As I say don't use it often but its handy to have when out and about.

I know its hijacking the thread a little but have you tried Garmin XT ? its very good on the n95 so id assume its good on all s60 phones, ive used tomtom for about 3-4 years had it on my pda at first but swapped to Garmin when there was no patch available they are very similar and id expect the maps are the same.
#23
Seems like a great deal to me! Does anyone know if it will work on a Sony Ericsson W810i?
#24
I know this is a Symbian installation but once you've bought it, will the company allow you to download a Windows mobile version (or do they only do Symbian) ?
#25
Can anyone please give the details of were the Nokia N95 patch for Tom Tom Navigator 6 could be down loaded from ?

Thanks :thumbsup:
#26
OK.

Just found a site with step by step instructions.

Took me 5 minutes to do it and it works perfect!

I am not sure if there are network charges associated with this, it doesnt look like it, but if anyone knows can they let me know!

I dont want to be running up any bills...1!

Good luck!

Symbian only. If you regularly use different phones, and want multi-platform, go for Garmin XT or CoPilot 7. They both include versions for Symbian (S60 and UIQ) and WM (Pro and Standard) in the same package, allowing you to switch as often as you like, as long as you only use one device at a time. Garmin also include a version for Palm OS.

Why so cheap ??????


It's cheap because the software and maps are way out of date, with no upgrade available to a later product. Bear in mind that even "2008" maps can be 2 years old. Other SiRF III receivers are available for around the same price, e.g. http://www.expansys.com/p.aspx?i=164060

Nokia Internet Tablet users got a free upgrade because Nokia bought Navicore (and Navteq), then built Wayfinder Maps as standard into the N810 operating system (OS 2008). So the licence transfer was purely to enable users who had previously bought Navicore for the N800 to upgrade to OS 2008 (for free), and take advantage of the Wayfinder application (by enabling spoken instructions) now that Navicore itself was redundant.
#29
try Garmin Mobile XT - best available sat nav for a phone and uses internal GPS recievers, this product is gash beleive me.
#30
Can this bluetooth GPS receiver be used with any sat nav software and any bluetooth phone or is it just for this Navicore software ?
#31
anyone?
#32
Yes

I bought it (off eBay - that's to the poster of that info - got it for 19.50 all in on an auction) & can confirm that the GPS works just fine with the nav4all software I use. However, the software is a little different - it want's to register via an international SMS (which it fails to mention when asking to send a text message) - the register via GPRS isn't available on my 6120c either. My main gripe is that small print in the manual says it will register to my phone & sim, neither of which are likely to be my main ones come christmas...

I have a support query in, but I'm feeling kicked in the teeth for wanting to used licenced maps - it seems true what warez users say, licences only complicate things for the people who try to do the right thing!
#33
Had it confirmed that SMS or GPRS are required to register & seems that a new text is sent if you change either phone or sim, but if you change both, you have to contact support! : (
#34
Guys,

Anyone got the wayfinder license code available left over that they didnt use. Id be interested in it if you aren't using it. Not sure if it will work for me but I want to try it on something.

Please PM me if you do.
