DS248:... Yes, turn by turn nav works well. ...
How recent is your phone?
Did it ever say you needed to purchase the navigation license? If so, how did you manage to get it to switch to the freee navigation. I bought my phone in Feb, but it was a parallel imported version which was clearly one of the earlier 5800XM models (only had v2 firmware).
Upgraded it to v4 & installed Maps 3 OK, but still have not got free navigation to work :(.
The other problem I have yet to solve is how to enter a destination. It I specify an address, it just says it cannot locate it?
I would be interested to know your experience.
Bought the phone from parallel imported back in January, upgraded from v2 to v4 like you. I just upgraded to the new ovi maps when it came available, just works. Locating stuff works fine, generally. e.g my home address is not located, it finds across the road instead. I installed the nz maps using the ovi software from PC.
Used it to nav to a birthday party out-of-town yesterday.
