Garmin Mobile XT for Windows Mobile

Postby lee82gx » Mon Oct 06, 2008 2:59 pm

Hi all users,

I am encountering very frequent application hang issues whenever I browse the Maps for a certain period (under 3 minutes).

Worst thing is the program will not be able to be stopped and need a reset of the phone.

Is there any kindred souls facing the same issue and have solution?

Did you install the correct version?

There are 3 version.

1) For WM base pda phone.
2) For symbian phone, eg Nokia phone
3) Fot Symbian UIQ eg sony errisson phone.

You need the 3rd one, many mistook the 2nd. :mrgreen:

Oh....one more version...for the palm os.... i think also part of symbian :mrgreen:

hi singawon,

I'm pretty sure I got the right version. (UIQ ver).

Also, I have actually tried to install symbian version on purpose but

Any other suggestions?

Should work well since I've help to install on my brother in law a while ago. Have you use the most updated firmware? My brother in law P1i uses latest firmware. GMXT never hang and work well.

Cheers

Regarding the application hangs under 3 minutes, that occured for me (on my SE P1i) before when I used the version of MSM map that was not compatible with Symbian. After I reverted back to the free map from MSM (Jan 08), that didn't occur anymore.

But I still do encountered the same problem that the Garmin MXT doesn't seem to exit properly and remains till I reset the phone.

Just updated the firmware to Version 5.00.10 from here: https://buy.garmin.com/shop/store/downloadsAgree.jsp?id=3941&product=010-11034-00&cID=138&pID=11413.

IMPORTANT: Remember to backup your 'My Location' entries BEFORE UPGRADING, the names were all 'garbaged' in my unit after the upgrade. Had to delete all entries and re-enter them ...


Will try it out a few days and see if it hangs or unable to exit properly, and revert here.
