Latest Garmin Mobile XT Installed on My E71

When I got my E71 a couple of weeks ago, one of the first thing that I installed was Garmin Mobile XT. I don’t want to use the preinstalled Nokia GPS and Maps because everytime I launched Nokia GPS, I had to make a wireless connection. I do not subscribe to a buffet, all-u-can-use data plan, so using Nokia maps for navigation is very expensive. Hence, GarminXT a solution of choice.

Two weeks ago, I installed an outdated version of GMobileXT and it worked fine, really, but I decided to install the latest version on my E71 last night. I thought I knew what I was doing … boy, it was a long night.

I downloaded the update and installed as per directed but I could not get GmobileXT to run on the phone. I panicked, I reinstalled the software, reset the phone and it still did not work. I was sleepy and at almost 1 a.m. I decided to uninstall the app using the Applications Manager and delete all files and folders relating to Garmin.

Then, did a fresh install.

Twenty minuts later, it worked! What a relief. I thought I scewed up the whole memory card since GMobileXT needs to be installed on the card, and depends on the card’s unique ID to run. Phewww!!!

Moral of the story, do not work when sleepy or tired. Get a good rest and you’d probably find the solution to easier.

    Hello Everyone!

    So recently I set-up the Garmin GPS for my E71 and it seems to work great. Only problem is that I dont seem to have North American maps. I live in Canada, so id mainly need a Canadian map, but a US one would be great too. How do I go about getting them? And can someone reply with an actual link? That would be awesome!

    When installing on my E71, I got this message : Unable to complete installation from memory card. To complete installation, go to application manager.

    When I try to run it from Application Manager, it tells me ‘Unable to install’

    Anybody has any idea? My Software installation has been set to “All” while my online certificate check has been set to “Off”.

    I have managed to download the basemaps into my device and I can see the maps now. However when I want to search by address or food, hotels etc I was prompted “Detailed maps are required for this feature……”

    I have followed the instructions in this viewtopic.php?p=161908#p161908 But I am not sure what went wrong.

    These are the files I have in my Garmin folder now.


    Is it ok for me to have 2 img files? One is the basemap and the other is the downloaded from viewtopic.php?p=161908#p161908

    I need to see the detailed maps in order to navigate…. please help….. thanks.

      Dude! You need has this order:

      gmapbmap.img (stock map, but do not delete)
      gmapsupp.img (first map)
      gmapprom.img (second map)

      Just rename your maps and be sure than the “*.UNL” files has the same name that it respective map, and thats all!

      Enjoy! 😉

    Every phone card ID etc is different everytime u install it. it is very simple.

    I am using the latest 5.0 version downloaded and also have 4.0 ver. Its prehacked and comes with keygen but like i said u need to do it all begin coz every fone will needs its own ID serial base of ur fone. Just like any pc when u install a software it as for ur pc id so it can create a serial for u etc.

    Well I can upload the working 4 and 5 version but u must follow the steps on the txt. I will no long explain this as it took me about 2 hrs to get it going right. First try too.

    choose data transfer mode, it works!!

  26. BlackSamurai says:

    Hi Nazley,

    Need your advice here. I’ve tried many times, but my setup failed when I try to install the support file, because GARMIN XT Support file installation can’t detect my E71 nor memory card, the location list is just blank and it pop up a message ”

    A supported install location was not found. Please make sure to complete the following steps:

    1.) Turn on and connect your mobile device or card reader to your computer
    2.) Insert your storage card into the mobile device or card reader.
    3.) Make sure you have installed the PC synchronization software that came with your mobile device.
    4.) Click “Refresh List”.

    Do you have any idea what’s the message above mention? I hope I didn’t turn on some advance feature (I did turn on and turn off the encryption function for memory card once) and block the installation.

    PS: I tried google it, but no luck

    • BlackSamurai says:

      i got it, i need to pull out the micro SD and insert into my notebook in order to begin the installation

  27. charcha says:

    guys can u plz post a valid link to download the garmin mobile XT latest version that works with integrated GPS because the one i downloaded is either not installing well or damaged!

    thx a lot

  28. jose says:

    I have installed the garmin in my phone but it ask me for the serial number. Has enybody that serie number?

    • nazley says:


      GarminXT is a commercial software and the serial is obtained when you purchase the software. The serial number is unique to your phone IMEI no. and the memory card ID. I suggest a search on the internet might solve your issue.

  29. Jose says:

    To quote arjamal …

    “… anyone can use Garmin XT with external GPS unit. To use it with the integrated GPS, you need to have serial that comes with the purchase of Garmin XT.”

  35. FENDI says:

    saya dah cube download dan install dlm e71 tp masih tak dapat gune akan garmin, ia seakan tak digunakan dgn sempurna walaupu sy dah install…

  36. nazley says:

    Battery usage with navigation is pretty good, to me at least. My experience, 2 hours of GPS navigation eat up 2 notch on the power indicator. If you intend to make phonecalls later, I wont use the GPS for more than 2-3 hours.

  37. wonderkid says:

    I want to know about Battery Lift after E71 install Garmin Mobile XT Version 5.00.20.

  38. nazley says:

    hello there,

    Funny, I don’t get that message when i turned on wifi/gprs, but I get that same message after disconnecting the PCsuite usb cable. Sorry can’t be of much help to your problem.

    Try switching off A-GPS and Network assist and use the internal GPSr only. It’s possible GMXT detect data connection and assume you need the A-GPS started.

  39. Irfan says:

    I have installed Garmin Mobile XT on my E71. It work just fine. Except, everytime I connect wifi or gprs, it keep popping message like “Garmin Mobile XT Detected. Launched now?” It’s just annoy me. Do you know how can I turn off this Auto Connect? I would like to connect Garmin manually.



  40. arjamal says:

    Yes, anyone can use Garmin XT with external GPS unit. To use it with the integrated GPS, you need to have serial that comes with the purchase of Garmin XT.

  41. nazley says:


    Garmin Mobile XT is a commercial application. You can install it for free (I think) but you need to use an external Garmin Bluetooth GPS Receiver. After you installed GMobileXT, the app tries to locate the Garmin receiver and since you don’t have one, that is why it gave you the “Device not found” message.

    Do a little googling and you might find a way for the app to use the E71 internal GPS.

    Good luck.

  42. Ghulam says:

    When I installed Garmin Mobile XT on my E71 after installation it is asking GPS Device did not find. Where as Nokia E71 is having GPS device?

    Any help on this please.
