as long you are using Nokia 5800 or symbian S60 V5 OS, this application is compatible. My nokia 5800 also said this application is not compatible but the application run perfectly.

Ignore the warning and continue the installation step.

Admin said...

Hi john..
Make sure you have done step 12 and 14 otherwise you can't enabling Attached GPS.

On your Garmin, go to Tools > Settings > System > Remote GPS and select "Use Attached/ Built-in GPS" and hit Enable. Now your GPS is ready to use. :)
