Hello all ( I hope that I haven't out this in the wrong forum Mods)

I have just brough the Garmi mobile XT this afternoon after doing research that this was compatable with the Nokia , followed the instructions " insert the data card into your phone" when prompted to install the Garmin Mobile XT select yes, I did not get that option.

However when I go into the applications the Garmin XT is an an icon there but on double clicking it it says, not a valid file. I have checked that the serial number is in there so it's a genuine purchase.

Am I being dense here as I can't see what it is that I have done wrong.

Many thanks from a frustrated chappie.

Jerry

Are you using the right installation software? The 8500 is a Symbian device and the XT kit should have installation for both Windows Mobile and Symbian.

Eventually I managed to get it to work with the help of Garmin as per below Thank you for contacting Garmin Europe.

1st try which didn't work

If you are trying to run the Mobile XT on symbian Mobile and it is not
running after you have plug the card into your phone I would download
the latest software from the link.

http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=010-11034-00

After you have installed the latest software it will still not running

If you select the Mobile XT icon and it does not run please do the
following:

- Main Menu
- Tool?s
- File mgr (file manger)
- Card
- Garmin \ Apps \ Symbian\ RES \ GarminMobileXT.sis.

You will need to select ?GarminmobileXT.sis? it will then run with out
any problems. If it does not run then there is an errlog.txt on the
card, this will help me to identify the problem.

Second Try

[b]With regards to your email below, if you are running software version
4.10(60), if you are using a Nokia 5800 then you will need to update the
software for the Mobile XT to software version 5.00.50,
I have attached
a link below to where you can get the software from.

http://www8.garmin.com/support/agree.jsp?id=3939 [/b]

Once I did the above though the sis file was not in the folder but on the sd card. Once I clicked on this it said do you want to replace version 4.10 with version 5.00, clicked yes and hey presto Garmin is on the Nokia now,

Thanks

Jerry
