ring the power of android devices to your shiny new Symbian S^3 smartphone and amaze your friends instantly. Sygic Aura, originally released for Android devices, can be successfully used for GPS navigation on Nokia smartphones that carry the Anna or Belle Symbian OS. With the easy installation steps I am about to post here you will quickly get up and navigating with hardware accelerated navigation on your Symbian smartphones.


Sygic Aura

Before we entangle ourselves with the installation steps, let us take a look at some of the features of Sygic Aura quickly.

  • Hardware accelerated graphics lets you navigate smoothly with zero lag anywhere anytime.
  • Real time traffic updates assures you the fastest route is taken by you when you need it.

  • Comes built in with Google Local Search which enables you to explore a world full of POI.
  • Allows you to search your streets directly without the need of remembering any of their names.
  • Clear, precise and animated Lane Guidance System assures you do not mix up the lanes when you are navigating a new city for the first time.
  • Detailed and flexible multi-stop route planning is also present which calculates the exact ETA for any sort of complex navigational systems.

Installation instructions:

It is quite simple to be honest so here we go without any further ado:

Download 1 – Sygic Aura Download

1) At first you have to download the zip installer (download 1 – namely Sygic Aura Download) and extract it on to your PC preferably, so that you install Sygic Aura on your phone. You will see that there are things there, one the SetupSygicGPSNavigation.SIS file and a folder called Sygic.

2) Now we have to transfer the installer on your phone. To do that please go ahead and transfer the Sygic folder to the Root of your phone’s memory card and then install the supplied SetupSygicGPSNavigation sis file to your phone. You must select English as your preferred language.

3) Once the SIS installer has completed the installation successfully, you are basically done. All you have to do now is to get the correct Android maps on to your Symbian device. To get the maps for your desired country please install the second file from below (download 2).

Maps Update Instructions:

Download 2 – Sygic Maps Downloader

1) It is quite simple too. Simply download the above file namely Sygic Maps Downloader and extract it.

2) Now browse onto the following folder after the extraction is done with. Go To: Sygic Downloader 1.9 – Android – Aura 11.2.6. Run the exe file and download the map you want straight on to your computer.

3)ย  Here is the tricky bit though, once the download is over you need to rename the maps file and transfer it on to your phone so that Symbian OS recognizes it along with Sygic. For eg. Say you downloaded the map of Australia, you will notice the file is named as aus.ta.20XX.YY. XX denotes the name of the maps and YY denotes the version number of the map itself. You need to rename this to aus.ta.2013.01 and copy only this specific folder to Sygic/Auramaps on the phone’s memory card. There will be other folders that doesn’t need to be copied at all so you will only have to copy the country specific folder which in our case is aus.ta.2013.01.

That’s it enjoy high performance navigation any time you want without incurring extra charges right from your smartphones. Maps that are currently supported are all the countries from Europe including Russia, England, Sweden, Norway, Romania, Portugal, France, Spain etc. many countries from Asia including China, India, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia and faraway countries like Australia, New Zealand etc.

Sygic Aura is supported by Symbian OS S3 devices like Nokia N8, C6, C7, X7, T7,E6, E7, 702T, Nokia Oro etc. Please like us at Facebook or subscribe to our RSS Feed before trying this out. Also feel free to share your contents on our forum ๐Ÿ™‚

Last but not the least, if you need other versions of Sygic for S60 v5 devices or S60v3 smartphones then check out our earlier article on Sygic GPS and another on the Sygic Mobile GPS Navigator.

    thanks so far,
    sygic is running well but it will only use the greek map. i tried to install several maps, but the programm will not find it. (i have renamed the maps and copied in the right folder). so please help me. where is the mistake?

  28. Omer

    the steps r vague and really hard to understand.
    1) i am getting a disk error when i run the app after i install on my nokia c7 with official belle refresh. i tried installing on the phone memory and the mass memory.

    2) i am still not able to understand what to do with the map folder i downloaded? u renamed it in ur example but what of other countries like Pakistan? what do i change the XX and YY to? obviously, i will do this when that DISK ERROR is fixed. i have already downloaded Pakistan’s map from the Sygic Map Downloader Android section, since the Symbian section only has Europe.

    3) After installing the sis file, where on my phone is this Sygic folder that I have to copy the files in the Zip to? or do i create a new folder called Sygic (from the zip file) directly to my memory card?

    so for the admin, plz help us with the DISK ERROR (alot of people are getting this) and then the rename instructions for maps of other countries apart from Australia.

  29. Rani Gupta

    In india its working(bcoz india in Asia) ? Please sir ans. Me?

  30. Rani Gupta

    Hello sir, im downloaded all in here. Also india.rar. Please help me how to use india.rar data. Please please . . . Thanks

    I think for india map, we need more clarity. The India.rar contains files like “i01.mi.2013.01” … “i32.mi.2013.01”. I copied all of them into the phone folder: :\Sygic\Auramaps\
    I start the app, but for India it does not work.
    Please help.

  43. Ashley

    Thanks for your reply Rick,I am putting Sygic onto an N8.
    I have done exactly what you instructed (my insallation map is grc.ta.2011.09, but it only installs Greece when Sygic is activated. If I remove the Greece map from Auramaps then restart Sygic it shows no maps available?

  44. Ashley

    Hi Ishtiag,
    I followed the instructions, but something is still wrong? the phone says “no maps installed” I have downloaded (aus) and (nzl) and neither require renaming.The map of Greece works fine but it has other files attached such as ” contents,europe,footprint etc and a serial number is included in 1 file”. Does the (aus) map file require similar files attached to make it work?
    Thank You

    • Rick

      hello, no friend. u jusst need 2 paste the folder containing the aus maps in the maps folder of ur phone. but first u need 2 rename ur aus maps according to the greece maps format.

      if ur greece maps format is grc.ta.2013.26 then u need 2 rename ur aus maps to aus.ta.2013.26 n then paste aus.ta.2013.26 in the maps folder of ur phone.

      thnx ishtiiaq. awsum post.

  45. sahil

    cant find india maps….

  46. Ashley

    Sorry for the above comment, I opened the file rather than saving it and the file downloaded OK

  47. Ashley

    Download 2 seems to have a problem as the file is damaged? It’s only downloading about 200B instead of 12.2Mb.
