I have loaded trapster on my N97 with GPS fully enabled. The map loads in squares and has large gaps between each square section making it impossible to use properly. I have uninstalled and reinstalled but, still the problem remains.
GPS works fine along w/ traps but the map is like the original post... blocks in satelite and hybrid and reg. Just started in the last week or 2 on my phone and my wifes. Reload trapster and still did the same thing
Umm, I don't think you are grasping the issue folks here are pointing out.
I have Trapster 2.06(2)
The maps LOAD on my Nokia 6650 as well (no GPS location from the internal GPS which works flawlessly with a host of other apps - but this is an unrelated issue).
The problem with the maps is that the edges of every tile have THICK white borders FOREVER. You can scroll/pan around, but you have to pan through empty/white space the whole time.If you are at the corner of four loaded pans, then you will have a massive, thick white, empty + shaped section on your screen. Are you folks querying the wrong sized pans or getting the wrong screen dimenions from the Nokia API? My display is a portrait 240x320, and the tiles seem to be of that size, only with an additional ~50 pixel white section at EVERY border. Highly annoying and unprofessional looking.
My phone has no Settings related to Positioning methods. But this hasn't stopped other GPS-using apps (Waze, BuddyWay, Ovi Maps, Google Maps) fro accessing an using my internal GPS.
In Application Manager, Trapster only seems to have options to change Internet access - choice of Access Point and confirmation upon first or each Network Access.
Could it be that AT&T has locked down the 6650 to disallow Java apps access to the GPS? All the other apps I compared with are native Symbian apps!
Ahh, indeed - I have BuddyWay Symbian working, but the BuddyWay Java/Jar/Jad fails to work (nice error message - Internal GPS Receiver Error). Alright, then - my no-GPS issue appears to stem from an AT&T (carrier) lock-down denying GPS access to Java.
As much of a POS that my N97 is, it always worked properly with Trapster. The OS on the N97 is extremely unstable and the hardware is not powerful enough to support the device and OS. You may want to try a clean wipe of your phone, make sure it is up to date with the latest firmware (version 21.0.045 ) and re-install trapster. Don't run any other apps if possible while trapster is running, the phone simply cannot handle it very well. Press and hold the "menu" hardware key which will bring up the task manager and you can close any other open programs from there.
