Garmin XT on my E71

I already gave a link to the site that explains how to install Garmin XT to compatible Nokia phone in the previous posting. However let me summarise the steps for you guys.

  1. Get these files:
    1. Garmin Mobile XT Free Basemap
    2. Garmin Mobile XT Support Files
    3. Garmin Mobile XT for Symbian S60 3rd Edition, Ver. 5.00.20
  2. Get your desired map. For Malaysia, I recommend getting it free & legal from MFM. Download & follow the instruction. Get the gmapsupp.img file ready. You can also obtain free & legal Indonesian map. Just google for it but then rename it as gmapsup2.img. Save it in your PC first.
  3. Then connect your phone to your PC in mass storage mode. Install all files in Para 1 with same order. I installed mine in the memory card, to save some space for the phone memory. I hope you know the consequence of having apps in the memory card instead of the phone memory :D
  4. Transfer the maps to the same Garmin folder either in your phone memory or your memory card.
  5. Disconnect your phone from PC. Now using your  File Manager in your phone, find GarminMobileXT.sis file from the root folder (/Garmin) or maybe in the root folder of the memory card (/). Therefore make sure you remember where did you installed your apps to.
  6. Put all your desired maps into /Garmin too. But remember that not all maps are free. If it is not free, you must get the key when you bought it. Else…again, ask Mr Google *wink* IINM Garmin XT can support up to 4 maps. Gmapbmap.img is already available & its the world base map. So don’t delete that. Or if you have more than one map, you can combine them all into one gmapsupp.img using sendmap or gmaptool (please Google for it).
  7. Once Garmin Mobile XT has been installed run it from /Menu/Installations/GMobileXT. It will prompt you for a 8 digit key (you will have this number if you bought it), else you can only use GMobileXT paired with a bluetooth GPS. So guys, go & buy the app for you to have the key…. (please don’t ask me for the keygen because I will not going to do that….Mr Google might have it tho’) *evil grin*.
  8. Once done, enable the built-in GPS at /Settings/System/Remote GPS. Select ‘Use Attached/Built-in GPS’. Enable and it’s all done.




Cool Stuff

Do you know some cool stuff? Check this screenshot…


What’s the different of this snapshot with your newly installed GMobileXT? :D Look at the vehicle icon! :D No more that boring triangular shape car! Wanna know how to change that? Just visit Garmin’s Garage. The specific howto is here.


Latest Garmin Mobile XT software as of 11th March 2009 is version 5.00.20. Info about the improvements from v.20 to v.30 to v.40 is available here. But I don’t want to try it yet.

    salam bro..
    mcm mana nak install map malaysia dalam gmst v.5

  3. Jamal Rahman September 14, 2009 at 5:57 am #


    Cuma perlu ikut arahan pada Para 2 & 3 di atas.
    Dapatkan map dari samada Malsingmap atau Malfreemap, kemudian copy gmapsupp.img ke dalam folder Garmin dalam kad E71 anda. Itu sahaja.

    nak mintak tlg…bole tak bagi step nak install garmin xt dalam E71 dalam bahasa melayu…tak brape faham la…mekaceh…

  5. Jamal Rahman September 15, 2009 at 6:16 am #

    InsyaAllah…bila free sikit2 nanti saya buatkan…tapi senang sebenarnya. Sangat senang. Yang penting dapatkan nombor siri Garmin XT ni.

  6. mohd azlan September 16, 2009 at 12:22 pm #

    salam bro..saya baru dapat install gmxt pada e71 member saya..mula tu salah code, then saya install semula dgn code yg betul (tanpa remove gmxt sebelum ni).. betul kah cara ni sbb lepas install yg kedua tu…device tak dapat cari signal…
    harap bantu..tq

  7. Jamal Rahman September 16, 2009 at 1:52 pm #

    @ Azlan: Sepatutnya takde masalah. Selalunya masa first time nak detect signal memang lambat sikit. But lama2 makin cepat. Berapa lama tunggu nak dapatkan signal? Dalam building atau open space?

    Minta tunjuk ajar.
    Saya dh berjaya install GarminMobileXT dlm e71 sy, tp takboleh nak open application. Lepas tu semua applications lain dlm memory card dh takde (erased) tapi file & gamba masih ada.

  9. Jamal Rahman September 28, 2009 at 1:55 pm #

    Nadine install kat mana? Dalam fon or dalam kad?
    Install dalam kad senang.
    Buat semula step-by-step. But kali ni install dalam kad.
    Tapi periksa kalau2 kad tu bermasalah.
    Software lain OK ke?

    bro.tolong sy.pening da otak nk install garmin ni.asek tak jadi je

  11. Jamal Rahman January 3, 2010 at 4:26 pm #

    Straight forward sebenarnya nak install Garmin XT ni.
    But make sure ada serial number tu ready. Tu penting.

    Masa install 3 file utama tu make sure connect as Storage mode. BUKAN PC Suite.
    Pastu bubuh maps yg berkenaan dalam folder Garmin.
    Run sis file, isi no siri yg diminta & walla….siap.

    Tried for couple of times but managed to get only the Garmin logo screen then nothing happen…! very frustrating laa…I installed all the three files.and tried both closed and open area n still nothing come out..mintak pak jamal tolong2 ushakan..

  13. PuntoE71 January 15, 2010 at 10:11 am #

    ..and masa launching serial number whatsover being asked..

  14. PuntoE71 January 15, 2010 at 10:30 am #

    ..btw mine is running on ver 400..

  15. Jamal Rahman January 16, 2010 at 6:34 am #


    I think you need to uninstall Garmin XT from E71 using Apps Manager, delete all the files (the whole /Garmin folder) & do everything again. And please make sure to do everything step by step as written in the blog. Do not copy the files from someone else but do clean download & install. I experienced problems when using my very own installation files copied directly to my friend’s µSD.

  16. marc March 3, 2010 at 2:54 am #

    how come when I wnna install the apps fromfile manager, it says file type not supported.? pls reply ASAP..

  17. Jamal Rahman March 4, 2010 at 2:17 pm #

    Hi marc, I really not sure why you could not run the installer…..

  20. Jamal Rahman March 8, 2010 at 8:11 am #

    emy, connect your phone in Mass Storage mode. Then using your PC, execute all the installation files & put them all in your preferred destination in your phone. Can be either in the card or phone.
