Installing Garmin Mobile XT on Nokia N96.

I won a beautiful Nokia N96 recently at a party. Actually, my boyfriend won it and he gave it to me. I’ve been eyeing the phone for the longest time…..just the sheer beauty of it. Thank you babs! I did spent the whole day upgrading the firmware using Ovi (so easy!), transfering contacts, images, everything, installing Gmail, Twibble and deng deng deng deng….Garmin!

Tired
Yeah I’m really tired!

I am an ardent user of Garmin Mobile XT. I had it on my previous phone, Nokia N82. It’s the most awesome thing ever, after secretly recording your own singing voice in the car that is. After upgrading to Nokia N96, I tried installing the same executables to it but the Garmin never worked. The Garmin logo appeared under Applications but the programme just wouldn’t open.

Garmin Mobile XT
Where am I going?

After searching high and low for the solution, I finally discovered the root of the problem. The existing Garmin .exes I used on my old phone would only work for N82 and N95. As for the new N96, only the updated .exes can work on it.

Here’s how to install Garmin Mobile XT on your Nokia N96:

1. Download to your computer the Garmin Mobile XT for Symbian S60 3rd Edition, Ver. 5.00.10 from this link.

2. Download to your computer Garmin Mobile XT Free Basemap, Ver. 4.xx.xx from this link.

3. Download to your computer Garmin Mobile XT Support Files, Ver. 4.xx.xx from this link.

4. Download GM-MySInMXT.exe from this link. (this is map of Malaysia and you have to be registered before you could access the site)

5. Connect your N96 (via memory storage) or memory disk to your computer and make sure it’s detected by your computer.

6. Now, run the recently downloaded files on the computer, one after another, in this order:

  1. v4.xx.xxx Support File,
  2. v4.xx.xxx Basemap File
  3. GMXT v5.00.10

When prompted to choose storage space, always choose the phone’s memory.

7. Disconnect phone memory from computer. It’s time to configure Garmin on your phone. Go to your phone’s File Manager >Garmin >Applications >Symbian >RES >GarminMobileXT.sis and install the .sis

If you can’t find GarminMobileXT.sis, check the root directory, it should be there. Install the .sis as per normal.

8. After that, go to Applications> run Garmin Mobile XT. It won’t connect to GPS satelite yet, so just ignore it.

9. You should have received your device unlock code from the manufacturer of Garmin, however if you haven’t, there are instructions on the Internet to guide you on how to get yours ;)

10. Copy the device unlock code and paste it in a notepad, then save the file as SW.UNL

11. Reconnect your phone/memory to your computer.

12. Copy the SW.UNL file into \Garmin\

13. Then, run GM-MySInMXT.exe, and copy gmapsupp.img into \Garmin\

14. Disconnect your phone from your computer.

15. Go to Applications >Garmin Mobile XT >Settings >System >Remote GPS >Select ‘Use Attached/Built-in GPS’ >Enable and it’s all done.

16. Wait for satellite signal to strengthen and then you can start navigating around various places with confidence!

Greenlight!
Greenlight means good to go!

p/s: This also works on Nokia E71.

Update: if you can’t find attached GPS, please check your sw.unl file. As commenter Joanna said

“go back to your garmin folder. Check out your SW.UNL file. It probably has an additional .txt at the end of it, delete that part and save it as SW.UNL. Then go back to the application and you’ll see the Route option appear.”

  1. Works perfect. Bit laggy after i put UK map on however still works great compared to nokia maps. Best advice i found so far! Thankyou very much!

  2. Slow mo… I also want one! =( so lucky! I wanna find one bf also d! But like pinkpau said “IF i won a free phone i wouldnt share it with martian”, well for my case, it’s not martian.

  3. 15. Go to Applications >Garmin Mobile XT >Settings >System >Remote GPS >Select ‘Use Attached/Built-in GPS’ >Enable and it’s all done.

    How i can find Use Attached/Built-in GPS??
    After i go to app>Garmin Mobile XT>Settings>System>remote GPS, there’s nothing option ‘use attached/built in GPS’…
    just enable or done…

    Thx..

  4. nvm. thanx for ur info. really helped me much. now i can use garmin anytime i want.
    is this product last forever in my phone?

  5. i’m jealous in a way… but still.. happy tat u got another phone… any plans to give ur N82 away for a old friend of yours??

  6. jo: hahah thanks!!!

    ed: you’re welcome. enjoy & have fun! :D

    ah pau: likewise lmao!!! p/s:they can afford to get for themselves what!

    mugiwarabai: should work if your phone operates on s60. as for your other questions, you can find the answers here.

    rachel: find one quick quick!

    franky: it should be there unless your phone does not have a built-in GPS.

    tc: hehehehe i’m not sure what to do with my n82 yet hehe. it’s like a fantastic camera that i can upload pictures straight to flickr as long as there’s wifi around! i’m hesitant to part with it.

  7. lolz. thanx for the site anyway. ive already used it last night n succesfully installed garmin into my phone 2am this morning.
    thanx.

    admin: that’s great. congrats!

  8. hello , can u help me please , ive done everything , up to step 12 , but i dont understand how to copy the both files into garmin , coluld you explain it to me as im not very good on a pc thanks ,so far tho all is good

  9. samantha: you’re welcome. cheers :)

    gareth: connect your phone or memory to your computer. when it’s detected by your pc, you should see a folder named “Garmin” in it. copy and paste the SW.UNL and gmapsupp.img from your computer into the Garmin folder in your phone. hope this helps!

  10. Hi,

    just to add..if it’s not working be sure to check all types when saving SW.unl on PC

    then it would definatly find internal GPS

    I have the same problem as Frank above. When I get to the Remote GPS screen, the phone does not detect the internet/built-in GPS of the N96. How do I fix this problem?!! Thank you!!!!

  12. I dont think it works on E71, coz on Remote GPS it dont have those options. Dont tell me that E71 dont have a built GPS. Any body find any solution on this

  13. Hi,

    Thanx for all advice (I`ve found you on google N96 Garmin) I`ve tried it, made some combinations with teh old maps (I live in the Netherlands,a d drive a lot through Europe) and yes, it all works on my dutch N96…..

    Thank you very much,

    Kind regards,Claude

  14. Hey all, wonderful instructions on this thing. I’ve managed to get it installed and running on my new N85 =) But I waited for awhile (step 16)and it only has one red bar =( Any ideas? How long did you wait to get the signal (3 green bars) like in the picture you posted?

  15. Works sooooo good on my Nokia N96!! ive also put the speed cameras on and the uk maps!! thank for the detailed instructions!!! ive been trying tomtom for a while and not had no luck!! this software is great!!! il go and try it now!! THANKS ALOT!!!

  16. franky – go back to your garmin folder. Check out your SW.UNL file. It probably has an additional .txt at the end of it, delete that part and save it as SW.UNL. Then go back to the application and you’ll see the Route option appear. Thanks Kim for insisting on me installing Garmin lar. Its just sooooo damn cool! *hugs* Also thank u for putting up with the relentless calls. Muahahahahaha. Sausage tomolo.

  17. i cant use the gps in my n82 since garmin said i can use only paired gps device,there’s no choice to choose for attach device..anyone can solve this problem??

  18. hi..
    good post..
    act i plan to install this on my n85..

    i just wondering..
    how to get the unlock code..
    is there some how a crack or something?

    and about the map..is it the most updated map?

  19. Great description!!! Works fine with N96, I installed Bluechart Atlantic!

    Thanks!

  20. i’ve done everything!!still can’t find the built in GPS device@attach device in my N82..plezz somebody out there…kimberly??any idea how to fix this??TQ…

  21. Hi, I REALLY appreciated you posting this. With your help, I was finally able to put garmin on my new E71. Thanks a lot!

  22. gr8 tips… i tried on my E66 and it works perfectly…. its just that you also have to find and download a Keygen in order to have the unlock code… keep on rockin’

  23. I need the UK maps or Europe maps to use on my N96
    Can some one help me to download them.
    Also is it possiable to have more than one map installed in it. and how.
    Thank you for your assistance.

  24. If the remote gps enable is not showing the *.unl file is incorrect or it might have a *.txt extention. Must make sure the sw.unl file is in the garmin directory else it will not work.

  25. For those who can’t get the unlock code , you need to download a Key generator ( use google search )
    It’s working perfectly on my Nokia N95 8GB
    I hope this helps

  26. Hello
    For those who don’t see ‘Use Attached/Built-in GPS’

    On the tool bar at the top of your window go to tools->folder options->view and tick off ‘hide extensions for known file types’
    Then delete .txt extention and save it

    It should work now, because i had the same problem

  27. Thanks so much for the help with this, especially to Dawid for the tip with the file extension. working fine now!! you guys rock!

  28. Hi,

    You say install to the phone memory. My phone memory has a max of 84Mb but over 40Mb is used by system files.

    I cannot delete any to make room for the large files you say to install.

    Is phone memory the correct place or can the files go in the Mass memory?

    Thanks

  38. hi
    PLEASE HELP
    when iam going to open the Garmin xt for first time it opens and then in 3 seconds its off.I installed the 3 files as per guide but every time i try to install it in mass memory some files exist so it asks me if i want to overwrite them or not. I ve installed them many times but it won t open.it just opens for 3 seconds and then gone
    HELP!!!!!!

  39. THX! Got it working right away after reading your advice. Seems it´s important to download the most recent version of Garmin XT. Step 4 is not nessecary if you need european maps.

    The thing i miss is vocal warnings for speedlimits. At poihandler.com they have a nice programm for almaost al navigating software exept Garmin.

  40. Install on my N73 it work in the first place but i did not unlock the software. When i try to on it another time, it on but off after 3 second.
    Now i cant unlock it anymore, what should i do?? HELP!!!

  41. Thanks for a gr8 upload, i must be thick of something i have got the garmin working but when i go to remote gps there are only 2 options (connection allowed to Garmin GPS devices only) and (Pair New GPS). I want to use the internal GPS.
    I have done this part aswell
    (Copy the device unlock code and paste it in a notepad, then save the file as SW.UNL)

    Any advice would grateful.(

    Thanks again.

  42. Eventually got it working with the internal GPS.
    I Opened notepad, copied the device code, went to file to save as, on the filename as Sw.unl and deleted the .txt, on Save as type clicked all files.
    (Baically make sure you delete the .txt otherwise it will not work, you can go to your phone filemanager under garmin to check).
    Then paseted in my phone’s garmin folder now i can choose built in gps.
    I hope that helps.

    but I cannot find it.

  60. Ive done everything what it says but when i get to number 7 where it tells you to Disconnect phone memory from computer. It’s time to configure Garmin on your phone. Go to your phone’s File Manager >Garmin >Applications >Symbian >RES >GarminMobileXT.sis and install the .sis.
    When i get there i have 3 options GMBMP,GMTSR ,GMTXT, the first and last options have question marks by them and when you click on them it says”unable to open,file type not supported and the middle one GMTSR when i click on that a page opens with a number one in it?
    Any ideas?
    many thanks

  61. Steve:
    Go to your phone’s Installation > App. Manager > Garmin Mobile XT.
    Then run the program to Install the Garmin from there.

    I’m recently experience the same problem just like you. and solved :D

    btw, thanks to kimberlycun for guide. Its really work!

  62. Done it, thank god for that. For the people out there who need the code.Download the Key generator you can get it within from most torrent sites.It will ask for your “CARD ID” to get this goto garmin on you phone Tools,setting,About, and you will see it there under ID, 7 digit code.Put that into your key generator and then you have your device unlock code. Then start from step 10.Job done
    many thanks kimberlycun.

  63. Many thanks kimberlycun! Spent the whole day figuring it out and it all paid-off. I already have an existing SW.UNL before and when I replaced it with a new one (using the advice of steve last apr 2nd – thanks for that steve!) and voila! Works like a charm! Many thanks again!

  64. I can’t find the garmin folder with file manager.
    the 3 files v4.xx.xxx Support File, v4.xx.xxx Basemap File, GMXT v5.00.10 are in the phone memory but when i open it ‘unable to open. file type not supported’ shows up :(

    can anyone help? thanks!

  65. Hey nik thanks for replying.

    I have a mac and on it the files are .exe type so i can’t open or run them?
    what i understood from the instructions was that
    (Step 6) you transfer each file onto the phone via nokia multimedia transfer
    (Step 7) open up the files on the phone – BUT this is where i can’t locate the garmin folder and instead it’s 3 seperate files that the phone can’t open up + no .sis file

    6. Now, run the recently downloaded files on the computer, one after another, in this order:

    v4.xx.xxx Support File,
    v4.xx.xxx Basemap File
    GMXT v5.00.10
    When prompted to choose storage space, always choose the phone’s memory.

    7. Disconnect phone memory from computer. It’s time to configure Garmin on your phone. Go to your phone’s File Manager >Garmin >Applications >Symbian >RES >GarminMobileXT.sis and install the .sis

    If you can’t find GarminMobileXT.sis, check the root directory, it should be there. Install the .sis as per normal.

  66. HI

    Is there anyway to have multiple maps. I want to have a US and a UK one. The combined one I downloaded for the US and UK does not allow me to do travel directions as asks for a state and no UK ones listed. Yeh, it finds local towns.

    Any ideas?

    Scott

  67. Thank you Kimberly, I have just succesfully loaded onto N82. For a newbie like me it wasn’t easy. Changing sw.unl from a text file to a .unl file was the tricky bit. As a newbie I simply erased .txt from the file name, but I found that this doesn’t actually change the file type. The all important sw.unl file MUST show as a .unl file in the Garmin directory. Thanks again, now I can begin to play with it…

  68. Can anyone suggest a good way of adding different sounds to garmin xt on the N96. I want to improve the alert for speed camera’s

  69. Has anyone a UK map? I have a US and UK combined one but its not great as wants to search via US states.

    Thanks

    Scott

  70. Hi Kimberly,

    Just wanted to say a Huuuuuuge cheers for yer info. Your guide was spot on and made a possible ‘blinded by science’ situation really easy to sort.

    I was pointed in your direction by Stufart and he obviously knows a good thing when he sees it! (you can up your web reputaion by 10 points!!!)

    Thanks again, petal. Take care and happy travels.

  71. hey. i followed all you of the instructions and got up to step 13 and then i disconnected it and looked for the garmin mobile xt application on my phone. i found it but when i went to open it, i did not open. please help, i dont know why its not oppening, and i copied all the files and everything.

    thanks

    i’ve found the full version of garmin mobile xt ver 5.00.20. ( i cant remmember where i download it). dont have to unlock everything. it already in full version. but, the installation wont give you any internal GPS function. so, you need garmine mobile unlock ver 1.5. (different version wont give you any good). then, just copy the unlock code, and generate the two files as described in this forum. paste it into garmin dir in your smart phone. i work great in my new E75!!!

  81. Guys,

  101. Nice guide!! It works on my E71.

    Garmin installer:
    https://rapidshare.com/files/214305723/GarminXT-S60-v40.rar

    _Plug your phone and use the mass storage/usb mode (not the PC Suite one !!!).
    _Then copy those folders (Garmin,Private,Resource,Sys) from the main archive to the root of your device (E:\).
    _Copy them one by one, otherwise you’ll get a “Corrupted apps” error.(1)
    _Unplug your phone, wait a few seconds and it will tell you that the app wasn’t installed, it’s normal.

    _Go to your phone’s app manager and finally install Garmin.
    _Run it and get your personnal CardID in Tools->Settings->About.
    _Write it down and close Garmin.

    _On your computer, run the provided keygen and enter your CardID at the top (Enter your Unit ID here) then generate your unlock code.
    _Copy/paste it into notepad and save this file (without any extension!) as “SW.UNL”.
    _Don’t close the keygen and at the bottom in the “Map Product” dropdown field select and enter “378” in the 1st field (FID).
    _Copy/paste it into notepad and save this file (without any extension!) as “GMAPSUPP.UNL”.

    _Now copy those “GMAPSUPP.UNL” and “SW.UNL” files into the Garmin folder of your phone.
    _Copy the unlocked map of your choice (GMAPSUPP.IMG) in the same folder (E:\Garmin).
    _That’s it, off you go! Just remember to turn on only the “Attached/Built in GPS” in your phone’s GPS settings to avoid beeing charged.

    Good luck!!
