Nokia N95 8Gb Maps V2.0 problems.

I have had the new Nokia N95 8Gb for just over 2 weeks - I had it from my local Carphone Warehouse in Broughton (near
Chester). The problems I have with Nokia Maps V2.0 are as follows :-
1. Very slow on calculating a route - I am visiting numerous factory sites around the UK, so I saved the postcodes. On this particular occassion, I wanted to plan a known route home from one of the sites (53 miles), and I was nearly home when it had planned the route.
2. When a route has been calculated, the cursor showed itself just to the side of the road I was on, thus telling me I was not on a road.
3. Keeps changing the orientation - from pointing in the diretion I want to go (forward), to the direction I have been (backwards).
4. Planned road display changes from full width to narrow line - at this point, it no longer knows where it is and tries to recalculate route until the road changes back to full width.
I looked at the various forums (both Nokia and others), and there are many threads reporting the problems I have described above. I tried all of the suggestions including :-
1. Switching off Assisted GPS - in the Positioning methods - seemed to make no difference.
2. Use an external GPS receiver - much better in locating position, but still the same problems in reliability detailed above.
3. Switched off the go online when starting up Nokia Maps - this just made locating position take much longer.
4. Full hard reset of the phone, twice - no improvement.
5. Download Nokia Maps V2.0 and re-install - no improvement.
The overriding conclusions from the various forums was that Nokia Maps V2.0 is a backward step and that Nokia Maps V1.2 was so much better. As a consequence, I downloaded Nokia Maps V1.2 and loaded this up. I used it for a 400 mile round trip with no problem at all - directions were clearly displayed, route calculation was quick and it never lost it's position. Unfortunately, I can only use the route planning for 3 days - free test from Nokia when I connected to see licence details. The
only issue I have is that as my car has Bluetooth, I cannot use the voice navigation whilst using Nokia Maps, however, this is not an issue as I just keep checking the screen.
As I am pretty reliant on being able to get to the various sites without complications, there is no way that I will reload Nokia Maps V2.0 until I can be assured of its reliability. Unfortunately, I can not use the route
planning either as my licence relates to Nokia Maps V2.0. What I want is to either transfer my 2 licences to Nokia Maps V1.2, or have a refund for Nokia Maps V2.0 and then purchase licences for Nokia Maps V1.2.
Any assistance would be gratefully received. I have been in contact with Nokia Care who have suggested reloading maps 2.0, however I have already done this. They now suggest updating the phone software, however, it is at v 30.0.018 (pre-loaded) which is the latest version. I am due to take it in to my local Nokia Care Centre tomorrow and let them look at it.

i've just read the thread you posted on10th dec 2008 about nokia maps v2.0. what was the outcome of your n95?
this is my 1st time on this forum. i've got n95 (silver) that has recently been upgraded to software v31.0.017. I also had to upgrade map loader to get maps v2.
hope jaydee22 or anyone else can help

  • Nokia n95 8gb v15.0.015 problems?

    Anyone holding Nokia n95 8gb and upgrade singtel branded firmware v15.0.015 and had chinese pack corrupted?
    Was this post helpful? If so, please click on the "Kudos!" star. Thank you!!!!

    Hello All,
    I had upgraded my firmware again and the chinese font pack came back.
    I am not sure if I downloaded my nokia software updater from Europe (which is a wrong version) or Nokia just uploaded a latest firmware of firmware.
    This is the method which I had tried and it works.
    I uninstall the NSU which I had and download again from this nokia website: http://www.nokia.com.sg/A4759024
    and install.
    Previously the firmware files were 105MB, but the firmware files were 111.2MB after I had downloaded the NSU from the Singapore Nokia website. I think the file size is bigger because of the Chinese fonts.
    After I had upgrade, it shows :
    Before version:
    V 15.0.015
    11-12-07
    RM-320
    Nokia N95 (54.01)
    After the flash version,
    V 15.0.015
    11-12-07
    RM-320
    Nokia N95 (54.02)
    So it means that you don't have to troublesomely take your phone back to the nokia care centre and queue up. Additionally you can save your time to do this at home.
    Cheers~ All the best...

    This is a very common problem it seems, from Googling around for different help solutions. In fact, I'm here because of the same issue. WHich is why I find it slightly annoying that no one from Nokia can be bothered to post a definative solution in an FAQ or something, or maybe just post here to point people in the right direction.
    Despite all the attention being garnered by Android and Apple, Nokia is STILL the worlds largest manufacturer of mobile phones, and N95 8GB/N96/N97 users are probably still your loyal base of 'power' users. I for one have a smartphone because my contract was due for renewal, but still use the normally trusty N95/8 (now looking a little weatherbeaten!). Now, if you're going to convince us to try the N8 on our next contracts, it would be nice to see a few more updates and responses to ovi problems. Can we still 'downgrade' to PC suite? Perhaps I'll go and have a look.

    Hi Nick,
    Not certain what is causing the problem, but I do know that your phone needs to download maps, so you should connect using GPRS or Wifi to download the maps and then you should have maps for your locality, but you will need to connect again if you move outside of the locality. The best advise I would say is to get an internet add on for your phone so you won't be charged extra.
    you may be able to download maps and load them on also. You may also need to turn off the network assisted GPS so you are only using the built in GPS not the internet to find where you are.

  • Nokia n95 8gb music problem

    hey everyone i have the nokia n95 8gb phone and i am starting to have problems deleting and installing new music because i am trying to delete some of the music because it duplicated itself when i installed it the first time what would cause that and when i try to delete the music from the pc hook up or from the phone it just comes up deleting and after an hour nothing please help me figure this out please

    If your phone didn't come with pre-installed applications on your phone, you may try formatting the memory card from your phone, and see if that solves the issue.
    For the other case, you may wish to backup your memory card contents, and then format it.
    I think formatting should resolve the problem.

  • Nokia N95 8gb problems - freezing, fuzzy screen et...

    Ok so been using the Nokia N95 8gb phone for about a week now and noticed that there is a tendency for the phone to freeze for up to 10 seconds like when opening other things such as Inbox etc. The problems mainly occur when the phone is slid shut, then when resliding the phone open the phone freezes or sometimes screen stays black until battery is taken out!
    When the phone is slid shut sometimes the screen goes fuzzy in places aswell like a TV with no reception. The text and theme on the phone sometimes goes a dodgy colour aswell like a negative photo and sometimes even goes back to front and the wrong way round?? Anyone else had similar problems or knows what this is??

    Its unlikely to have the same issue after doing a software upgrade, it could be some application on your memory card or the simcard .
    You may try the steps below
    - A soft reset by keying in *#7780# when on standby - This will not delete any data but will restore all the settings back to default.
    If that does not help then you may wanna try doing a hard reset by keying in *#7370# when on standby - This will reformat the phone. DO NOT FORGET TO DO A BACK UP AS THIS WILL ERASE YOUR ENTIRE PHONE MEMORY.
    The security code by default is 12345
    Also would be best to reformat your memory card and sim cards well as there might be some applications in there which is causing your phone to lag.
    Mark me a KUDOS if this has helped...

  • Nokia n95 8gb problem

    HI i have a nokia n95 8gb and it enters in the gallery without me pressing any button.As soon as i unlock it it enters in the gallery.I can't even take a picture or enter the contacts because it kepps entering in the gallery at images and videoes.I tried updating the soft and resetting the phone but the problem persisted.What should i do?
    Solved!
    Go to Solution.

    The only thing I could think of is that the Key that's next to the shutter key, the one that has what looks like a Play key is pressed in.
    This key causes the Gallery to start and show the last picture taken. It may have malfunctioned.
    You would need to take it to a service point or repair technician to take a look at it.

  • Nokia N95 8gb Internet Explorer problem!

    Hi all! I have nokia n95 8gb and let one of my friends use it to surf the net. Now when I try to work on the internet explorer, the connection keeps dropping off. I have checked and it's not my router which is the cause of it. Unfortunately my firewall and antivirus protection was not on while I gave my friend my phone to use. I have scanned the phone and nothing is coming up in the antivirus scan. There seems to be this message that comes up every so often when I am working on internet explorer and it's as following:
    "/c:/system/dmgr/1008d39/contents/st.."
    I am afraid there might be some malicious file that got downloaded onto my phone. Not too sure as to what is happening. If anyone has experienced a similar problem or can help me with this problem then I would really appreciate the help.

    So I have been going through my history to find out what pages were opened that day and found out that the file 'st' is automatically downloading only when I open any livejournal page and then it diverts to the '\c:\system\dmgr\...' message. I have downloaded and run the KMS antivirus software but it doesn't pick anything up. All other websites that I visit are fine but when I open livejournal the 'st' file automatically starts downloading and then diverts to the page along with disconnecting from the WLAN.
    I have downloaded the y-browser and deleted the respective file from c drive but everytime I try to access livejournal, that file starts up again. Does anyone have any ideas as to what else I should try to deal with this? I would really appreciate the help. Cheers!

  • I like to know how to User a Nokia N95 8GB, as GPS...

    Hiya Everyone,
    I had download a great app called KISMAC Trunk for MAC OS X 10.5, within the app it has a GPS map, but i cannot work out how, by using my Nokia N95 8GB phone, as a GPS receiver, i can see that the N95 is getting singles from the satellites, but i would like to know if there is or is not, away for the GPS data to be able to be used by KISMAC software?
    I have tried loads of thing, but i cannot get the Phone and the MAC to used the GPS data
    Please can anyone shed any light how i could get a fix from my problem?
    Thanks
    Flouts 

    *[email protected]*
    and i can report success with [ http://www.symarctic.com/beta/static.php?page=extgps_download ] 
    i haven't used it in a while now, but if i recall correctly i used this app on my N95-1, and something like gpsX on my Powerbook to receive the gps data.
    at the time i found these apps by searching for info on using my N95 as a GPS for google earth.  i'd bet searching for info re: google earth will turn up more results than searching for info re: kismac (one is a bit more socially acceptable than the other).
    goodluck,
    -bit 
    N95-1 ---> N97-NAM ---> N900 ---> E7-00 + N900 (I use them both)
    (N95 was pretty good, N97 had potential but utterly failed to deliver, N900 is absurdly good. Those of you wondering, "should I try N900/Maemo/MeeGo"? The answer is a resounding YES)

  • Nokia N95 8GB Album Art and Album Folders Issue

    I have been hunting for for a resolution for two issues with the N95 8GB Media Player all over the web.
    1. Adding artwork (CD Covers) to audio tracks (or albums) seems to be at best hit and miss. Most of the time it just does not work.
    2. Deleting an album delete all the tracks but deleting the album folder seems almost impossible.
    Well this weekend I decided to try to solve this and I think I may have hit upon a solution.
    Since so may people have the same problem I thought it worth repeating. I would stress this has not been exhaustively tested but it does work reliably so far.
    I am using Nokia Music Manager 2.0. The fix is simply to convert the files to AAC rather than to M4A (which is the default). After this simple change everythig worked find for me. I can add and delete albums from Nokia Music Manager 2.0 (don't forget to refresh on the phone afterwards) AND reliably add Album Artwork.
    So here is how I have been working.
    1. Set the conversion format to AAC. I have been using 'Ultra high' quality setting. Options Menu >> Setting >> Conversion Tab.
    2. Next put in a CD, select all the tracks and choose copy to my collection.
    3. While this is going on I find the artwork on the Web. A simple Google Image search with the album title and artists last name / band name seems pretty 100% to get the on the first page. Download image to My Documents / My Pictures.
    4. Once the CD Rip is complete they will all appear in My Collection. I select all the tracks in my collection for the album in question, and then right click on one of them and select Edit.
    5. I then attach the Album Artwork by clicking on the blue folder and choosing it from my, MY Pictures folder.
    6. Finally select Copy to Phone from the File Menu.
    This has worked for me so far 100% and I have done 20 or so albums.
    NOTES:
    To get Nokia Music Manager 2.0 I uninstalled the version of Nokia Phone Suite that came with my phone and went to
    http://europe.nokia.com/A4144905I (or seach Google for "nokia phone suite"
    I chose the N95 8GB downloaded and installed. At some point shortly after install Phone Suite informed me that there were updates available and Nokia Music Manager 2.0 was one of these.
    I was originaly using this and suffered all the problems you guys have. After searching the web and finding no solution I decided to do some experimenting.
    Hope all this helps.
    PS If you need to delete all your legacy album folders, this is the fix I found on this same site. You can do this at any time.
    1. Enable the option to be able to see Hidden Files and Folders in your Windows Explorer.
    2. Connect your n95 8gb to your computer and choose data transfer mode.
    3. Go to My COmputer >> Nokia Phone Browser >> Nokia N95 8GB >> Memory Card E:
    3. If you have selected Show Hidden Files and Folders (see 1) you should see a folder called Private.
    4. In the Private folder you need to delete the contednts of three folders
    \private\101FFC31 (mpxv1.mpd and pcv5.mpd)
    \private\101f8857\Cache
    \private\101ffca9
    In all the 3 folders delete all the files Not the FOLDER
    Next time you restart the music player it will rebuild the indexes without the deleted albums folders.
    Hope this helps someone. It restored my sanity.

    Album Art
    Basically there are two methods
    Method 1.
    You do it on the phone. Load the album art pictures to the memory card. (Must be JPEG NOT BMP)
    Load also the music files.
    Open Music application in the phone. Open an album then select Options->Album art then Options-> Add, browse for the picture and select Ok.
    Repeat for each ALBUM
    Method 2.
    You do it on the PC.
    Get a Tag editing software like Tag&Rename, WINAMP, etc.
    Edit the files Metadata to include Album Art picutres (again they should be jpeg and also they should be set as Cover Front).
    Transfer the files that have Album Art using File transfer (usb mass storage) don't use MTP or PC Suite as these methods may convert the files and Album Art will be lost.
    Or you can continue using your Method

  • Copy contacts between PC and Nokia N95 8GB without...

    Hello...
    I have Nokia N95 8GB.
    I have 300 contacts stored on my PC from previous phone which was Nokia N90. What I want to do is to copy my contacts from my PC to my Nokia. But without PC Suite, without any synchro, just to copy them like in windows explorer, copy folder and paste folder.
    Is this possible? I mean, I can do this, but don't know where to place them inside Nokia folder tree - I want them to be visible inside address book...
    Thanx!!!
    Solved!
    Go to Solution.

    I am not sure this will resolve your problem but you could try with this.
    1. Remove Previous phone plugins from Library/phone plugins (If any files are there)
    2. Delete files from User/Library/caches/
    3. Remove chaches from System/library/chaches
    4. Download and install iSync plugin from Nokia website
    Make sure you have installed all available updates from Apple using Software Update and your phone firmware is updated.
