Nokia 5230 GPS – Free Voice Guided Navigation

Nokia 5230 GPS

Nokia 5230 is probably one of the cheapest touch smartphone with built in GPS receiver. GPS stands for global positioning system. It comes in handy while traveling. If you going to a new place and are looking for a restaurant,bus station etc GPS can guide you by plotting route to your destination.GPS is usually a feature of high end smartphones. So instead of getting a standalone GPS device which is going to cost you at least $100, you can get Nokia 5230 by paying a little more.

Nokia 5230, big high resolution display is a plus point and can easily replace a standalone GPS device. To make the navigation even more easier, Nokia introduced a voice guided navigation feature which was given for a 30 day trial period with all Nokia GPS phones till now. Only the dedicated phones such as Nokia 6110 navigator or 5800 navigation edition used to have it free, for lifetime. As Nokia 5230 is a budget smartphone, even the trial version of voice guided navigation is not offered. The good news is that recently Nokia announced that voice guided navigation is made free for all Nokia GPS smartphones, Nokia 5230 included. So what are you waiting for, download the latest version of OVI maps either directly from your phone -

    Hi there, just download the ovi suite an you can update maps from there. You’ll need to download the maps (via the data cable) if you want to see streets (otherwise it is just blank).
    The GPS just works – it doesn’t require any data transfer from your network provider (Vodafone, Telecome, 2o).
    No activation needed

    Using GPS on 5230 in India requires these steps.
    1) Download the India maps using oviSuite onto your computer.(Alternatively you can download it directly to your mobile).
    2) Saving the service provider internet(GPRS) settings as it is.It usually goes as an uncategorised internet setting.Make it default if it asks you when doing the same. Menu->settings->connectivity->Destinations->uncategorised.
    3)Unfortunately the ovi map application(AGPS) cannot use this uncategorised setting. so select it then options->manage->move to destination and select internet .
    4)Now agps settings needs to be done.Go to Applications-location-positioning-positioningserver->accesspoint and select it and change it to the service provider saved one.
    5)Now you are all set.switch off and switch on and viola your gps is ready.
