Map display problem on N97

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.

Sean,

I loaded Trapster again yesterday so I assume it is the latest version. I don't how to tell which OS I have on my N97. It's only 1 month old if that helps?

beuf,

Which carrier are you using? Some carriers will block 3rd party apps from accessing GPS.

Also, to insure you are using the latest version, download from http://traptser.com on your n97's browser.

Thanks,

Sean

I have Google maps and Nokia maps on N97 but trapster is unable to find them.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled

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

muskogee-

So some map tiles load properly, and others don't?

Yes, like checker board. I just took a trip from louisiana into texas this past week. When I entered Texas the maps loaded properly. It now looks like a network problem w/ ATT within Louisiana. I crossed the entire southern section of the state. Wierd problem. The app worked all the way to San Antonio.

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.

Like the one I just pasted above, Dave? And mine is a VERY basic Nokia 6650, with Symbian.

(Also, different issue) My 6650's internal GPS (which Waze, buddyway, Google maps & Ovi Maps happily use) isn't recognized in Trapster either, let me know if I should try something else.

Thanks for looking into the white-checkerboard bug!

Tish-

Yes exactly. You posted it while I was typing.

The GPS issue is weird too. In GPS source on your phone, is "Bluetooth" turned off? I found on the 8500s it was turned on and caused some problems.

Indeed.
The GPS is Enabled in Settings, and set to the Auto/Internal choice.

The None and the Bluetooth choices are NOT selected. NADA.

Why is there an Enabled override to the one-of-three options? Wouldn't forcing it to None achieve the same thing? Just a UI comment.

Tish-

I meant your phone's settings, ie the "Positioning Methods"

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.

Make a Symbian native app, please - guys!

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.
