Thread: Step by Step guide to installing Garmin Mobile XT on the 6110

  1. #1

    Default Step by Step guide to installing Garmin Mobile XT on the 6110, N95 etc

    Having searched numerous sites, I was unable to find suitable instructions on how to install the Garmin Mobile XT as well as the South African maps onto a Nokia 6110 Navigator or similar phone.

    Seeing that I managed to install them easily on my 6110, I decided to draw up up (hopefully) easy to follow instructions, with all the required files.

    Don't get scared off by the many steps, it is really simple and would take around 20 minutes.

    Also, these instructions can be used for installing the application onto other fones like the N95, with the only difference being that the application would, by default - be installed to the Applications folder directly, not into the "My Own" folder in it, as is the case with the 6110.

    Guide One- Installing Garmin Mobile XT


    Step One – Downloading required files

    Download the following files:

    1.1 Garmin Mobile XT for SymbianS60 version 5.00.50 : from here

    1.2 Garmin support files : from here

    1.3 South African Street Maps – March 2008 :
    Split into 2 parts. Download from Mediafire (here and here) or Rapidshare (here and here)

    1.4 Garmin Keygen : from here


    Step Two – Installing Garmin XT

    2.1 Plug 6110 into Usb port

    2.2 Select Data Transfer mode

    2.3. Install Garmin Mobile XT for SymbianS60 version 50050 by running “GarminMobileXTforSymbianS60_50050.exe” on your PC.

    2.4 Allow it to discover Removable Drive “H” then copy the software to it.

    2.5 Then move into Pc Suite mode (phone setting->connection->usb->Pc Suite)

    2.6 Program will now complete installation and will be present in “Applications -> My Own-> GMobileXT”


    Step Three – Unlocking the Device


    3.1 Run “GmobileXt” on the phone, go to settings->about, then find the Card Id titled "Unlock ESN"

    3.2 Record this ID, then exit GMobileXT, however keep the phone connected to the PC (preferably, not necessarily)

    3.3 Extract the Keygen (garmin_kgen.exe) and run it on your PC.Put in the Card Id and press generate to generate the device unlock code for your card. (Leave the keygen open)

    3.4 Copy the unlock code to notepad and save as sw.unl

    3.5. You will see your file named sw.unl.txt ,rename it to sw.unl

    3.6 Keep this file (sw.unl) for copying to the fone later


    Step Four- Generate Map unlock code

    4.1 Go back to the Keygen that you had left open, and ensure that your Card ID is still there in the field right on top.

    4.2 Go to the drop down menu titled : “Select Map Product” and choose “<custom mapset>”

    4.3 When asked for the MapID code , enter 1214

    4.4 Press generate to get your Map unlock code

    4.5 Copy the unlock code to notepad and save as gmapsupp.unl

    4.6. You will see your file named gmapsupp.unl.txt ,rename it gmapsupp.unl

    4.7 Keep this file (gmapsupp.unl) for copying to the fone very soon


    Step Five – Installing the Maps

    5.1 Unzip the two files containing the maps. Do this by copying both to the same folder, then extracting any one of them. This will automatically extract the other as well. If the file extracted is named “gmapsupp.img”, then no need to rename it, otherwise rename it to gmapsupp.img

    5.2 Keep this file ready for copying to the phone now


    Step Six – Copying the files to the Phone

    6.1 Open PC Suite and run “File Manager”

    6.2 Navigate to the memory card, then to the Garmin folder in the root directory of the memory card

    6.3 Copy the following files from your PC to this folder:
    sw.unl
    gmapsupp.unl
    gmapsupp.img


    Step Seven – Installing the Support files


    7.1 Go back to data transfer mode (phone setting->connection->usb->data transfer mode)



    7.2. Install Garmin support files by running “GarminMobileXTSupportFiles_4xxxx.exe” on your PC.

    7.3 Allow it to discover Removable Drive “H” then copy the software to it.


    Step Eight- Concluding

    8.1 Leave Data Transfer mode, disconnect the USB cable and Run “GmobileXt” on the phone

    8.2 Go to settings-> System->Remote GPS and enable the internal gps. (instead of the bluetooth one)

    DONE



    Guide Two- Installing Speed Camera and other Poi's on Garmin Mobile XT

    Step One - Downloading required files and installing POILoader

    1.1 Download the file named "POILoaderforWindows_253.exe" from here and the file named "POIs" from here
    1.2 Extract rar file named "POIs". It will extract to a folder named "POIs", which will be used in the next step
    1.3 Find the other file downloaded, named POILoaderforWindows_253.exe" and run it
    1.3 Install the program "POILoader"

    Step Two - Installing the POIs

    2.1 Plug fone into Usb port and Select Data Transfer mode
    2.2 Run POILoader, either by selecting "run" after installation, or by running it from the Start Menu.
    2.3 Select "Next"
    2.4 Select "Garmin Device" and "Next"
    2.5 Press "Find Device". "Garmin mobile XT" would appear under "Device" then select Next
    2.6 Select "Install new custom POI's onto your your device" and select "Next"
    2.7 Select "Browse" and choose the folder titled "POI's".
    2.8 As for "What units..." leave it as "Meters and KPH" and leave "In express mode..." as "Express" then select "Next"
    2.9 Once the POI's are installed (should be around 2648 Poi's), you may disconnect your phone.
    You are now done


    Guide Three- Installing Speed Camera and Mobile Hazard Poi's to Route 66


    Files needed:

    1. camera_hazards.lmx
    2. mobile_hazards.lmx
    3. A sound file (.mp3) for each. (Optional)

    Download all in one file, from here.

    Extract to a new folder.
    You will find the two .lmx files in addition to a folder named "Sounds" browse through the mp3 files in the folder, and select a file to play as a warning of a "Fixed Camera" ahead, with another to warn of a "Mobile Hazard" ie. Speed trap location.
    Note "Fixed Camera" includes both speed camera's and red-light camera's.

    Installing

    1. Plug fone into Usb port

    2 Select Pc Suite mode

    3. Open PC Suite (on your pc) and run “File Manager”

    4.Navigate to the memory card, then to the Documents folder in the root directory of the memory card

    5.Copy the following files from your PC to this folder:
    1. camera_hazards.lmx
    2. mobile_hazards.lmx

    6. Navigate to the Sounds folder in the root directory of the Memory card, then to the Digital folder within it.

    7. Copy the 2 mp3 files you had selected as your warning sounds, to this folder.

    Copying is now done, you may disconnect your phone from the Usb port.

    Saving LMX file as Landmarks

    8. On your fone go to Menu > Settings > Data mgr > File manager

    9. Press the scroll right button to go into the Memory Card > Documents

    10. Open the camera_hazards.lmx file > Options > Save > All landmarks.

    11. To organise them and make them work go to: Menu > Applications > Landmarks > Press the scroll right button > Options > Edit categories > Options New category > Give it a name (E.g Speed Camera)

    12. Once done scroll down to the category just created and change its icon. I chose the blue (i){information logo}. > Press back > Uncategorised > Options > Mark/Unmark > Mark All

    13. The only landmarks in this folder, should be the speed camera ones. If you have others that are uncategorised, then unmark them now manually.

    14. Select Options > Add to category > Find speed camera category and press the middle button and then OK

    15. Now do the same with the mobile Hazards.lmx file ie.

    16. On your fone go to Menu > Settings > Data mgr > File manager >

    17. Press the scroll right button to go into the Memory Card > Documents

    18. Open the mobile_hazards.lmx file > Options > Save > All landmarks.

    19. To organise them and make them work go to: Menu > Applications > Landmarks > Press the scroll right button > Options > Edit categories > Options New category > Give it a name (E.g Mobile Hazards)

    20. Once done scroll down to the category just created and change its icon. > Press back > Uncategorised > Options > Mark/Unmark > Mark All

    21. The only landmarks in this folder, should be the mobile hazard ones. If you have others that are uncategorised, then unmark them now manually.

    22. Select Options > Add to category > Find mobile hazard category and press the middle button and then OK >


    Configuring Sounds

    23. To configure them in the GPS, open your GPS: Options > Settings > Alarm > Landmarks > tick speed camera

    24. When prompted to Change Alarm settings Click Yes

    25. Select Warning Sound and then choose the file you had copied to your fone for the speed camera warning.
    Then choose you're own Preferences for the warning distance
    For "warn only along route?" you could choose No so it warns even if you haven't entered an address in. ie. you are driving normally with the GPS on, not navigating with it.

    26. Then Save

    Do the same for the mobile hazards ie.

    27. Back to Landmark (in the Alarm folder of the GPS) > tick Mobile Hazards

    28. When prompted to Change Alarm settings Click Yes

    29. Select Warning Sound and then choose the file you had copied to your fone for the mobile Hazard warning.

    30. You are now done!!!

    AWESOME!! I'll try it tonight. Do you maybe know how to transfer the maps from the memcard supplied with phone to another one. I want to use a bigger memcard that I bought but I cant get the Route66 to work (it starts but the SA map is not available)

    Default

    Yes, it is very simple as well.

    Here is it:

    With your old card in your phone:
    1. Connect the phone to the PC via USB and select "Data Transfer Mode"
    2. Run route66 sync on the PC.
    3. Select the map files, etc in the right hand pane within route66 and press backup.
    4. When complete you should see the backup file in the left hand pane of route66.

    Disconnect the phone from the USB port and then
    5. Press the red 'call cancel' button and select 'remove memory card' on the phone and remove this memory card (Best keep it safe just in case). Insert your shinny new memory card.
    6. Using the phone, format the memory card (just to be safe). (You probably wouldn't need to do this, so no need if you have other data on the card)
    7. Start route66 sync again and restore the backup to the mobile.

    It work perfect.
    Found it here

    Thanks man! I hate to repeat myself but I'll try it tonight.

    BTW are you familiar with the internet connection sharing one can do using bluetooth (since 6110 doesn't have Wi-fi). I've been wanting to write a tutorial for months now - since I got it to work. Not much use to me since my PC only has dial-up... but if you have broadband it's possible to make a datacall to your PC using BT then using IP-passthrough you can browse on your phone using your PC's internet connection. The range is obviously limited but I got a Bluetoot 2.0 dongle has decent range (it covers large part of our house)

    Most forums discuss this for the n70 (using a program called Gnubox). Check it out - or wait for my tutorial (could be long time.....)

    Default

    Do you have a step to step for the n95?

  6. #6

    Default

    It is identical, except for the folder where the application is saved on the fone.

    I just installed it on my Brothers N95 following this guide and it worked perfectly.

  7. #7

    Default

    So where do i save the application? MMC?

  8. #8

    Default

    Follow the guide exactly.

    The only difference is that the application will get installed to the "Applications" folder, not the "My Own" folder within it.

    Default Thank you

    Thanks ABU for posting this, i am just about to install it on my 6110 navigator, one question, what is different with the garmin than the route 66 on the 6110? which is better to use, thank you. And when i extract the map part 1 and part 2 it tells me should i replace the current file, should i rather put the files from part2.rar into part1.rar and then extract that. MAny thanks in advanced

    Hi,
    The Garmin seems much better, however you can use both.

    Save both rar files in one folder, then extract any one of them, the other would extract automatically, both into one big file.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Does garmin also tell you about nearby places etc?

    And is it possible to update my current SA map for route 66 to the new 2008 map. Thanks
