This is a set of instructions on how to setup the Garmin GPS navigation software in Nokia 5800 XpressMusic.

  2. Download these software into your PC. 
    • Garmin Mobile XT for Symbian 3rd Edition.
    • Garmin Mobile XT Free Basemap
    • Garmin Mobile XT Support Files
  3. Go to Free Malaysia and Singapore GPS Map @ Malfreemaps.
  4. Download the latest version of the map file.
  5. Connect your Nokia 5800 XM to the PC via USB cable.
  6. When prompted, select "Mass Storage Mode".
  7. Run the downloaded Garmin Mobile XT for Symbian 3rd Edition and follow the instructions to install directly to your Nokia 5800 XM.

  14. 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.

  18. Install the downloaded Malfreemaps of Malaysia and Singapore. Refer to the installation guide on how to do that.

  2. Hello, I've recently installed Garmin XT Mobile into my Nokia 5230 and I have a track available in Tools/Manage My Data/Tracks/View saved Tracks. I want to follow this track like if it was a route. Do you know if it is possible? Probably converting it somehow to route? This track goes both on road and off-road.

    1. Hi lilfoo, you are trying to backtrack your route for hiking or biking i assume. I have never use GarminXT for that purpose before. I apologize for uable to give you this info. Perhaps you might want to try ViewRanger. I use it for my hiking trips. It uses less battery power if you tweak it properly.
