    Default How to unblock GPS on 5800XM

    it's my first post here

    so 1st HI to you all

    N.B:i tried as hard as i can to search before posting the below;

    i got Nokia 5800xm & in my country the GPS is banned so on my mobile package nokia stats no gps function due too country law,

    so my question

    could nokia remove the GPS chip altogether or this is not possible so they must have locked the function on software??

    if it's software so how can i re-enable it again

    i tried changing product code to Euro codes & updated the firmware but nothing changed in the GPS functions,i there any other way around??

    thanks a million in advance

    well most probabaly nokia must have disabled gps in firmware itself ...like the did with n78 for fm transmitter function in certain countries ...

    but flashing with euro firmware should have solved the problem for u ...
    which country are u from

    I bet u live in Shri lanka. They have banned all gps products there . But I don't think Nokia has removed the gps module altogether. Since you have changed your code to euro just try google maps and see whether it gives you your exact position.

    I have a gps question too. I was going to open a thread for this but might aswell post it here.
    I can't get my GPS to work. When I activate it it first look for GPS device, finds it, but then when its callibrating (or whatever you call it) after a while it says that gps is unavailable. It goes on to say that this might be because of buildings but i tried this in open fields with the same result. When I check the satellite status it actually seems to find them (several bars appear above the numbers). When I try it inside a building it (correctly) says that it cant find any satelites. So I'm thinking (hoping really) that its not a broken GPS receiver but something else. Any ideas?

    Have you try to see the gps status when using gps data. BTW, from which country are? It helps to know.

    Hello Everyone!!!

    I got the same problem than Deff. At least, my Nokia 5800XP GPS is working when I use the aGPS. But is there anyway to use the GPS without the aGPS (because I have to pay for that and it's quite expensive...)?

    Thank you!
