To activate a trial version you should get a license key here
http://smartcomgps.gpswildmap.com/demo-trial.html

At present you can purchase SmartComNavigator online by a credit card or a bank wire. Additional information is located at smartcomgps.gpswildmap.com

======================
3. Installation
--------------
You can install the application on either your computer or Smartphone. We recommend taking the Smartphone user guide if you need the complete information about installation of applications on Smartphone.

*) Certificate error note: On some phones with a default setting which allows to install signed applications only. It could be disabled in
[Menu] -> [Tools] -> [Application Manager] -> [Setting] -> [Software installation] -> [All]
(Default is "Signed only")

We recommend installing SmartComNavigator on disk "C". After the initial setup, the application creates essential folders for its work:
Drive name:\System\apps\SmartcomNavigator - this folder contains program modules required for the application to work properly. Don’t delete this folder and files located in it. Otherwise the application will not work correctly. Also, during installation of SmartComGPS, set two directories - one in a mobile phone’s memory and another on a flash-card
* for Symbian phones series-60
c:\documents\SmartComGPS и
e:\documents\SmartComGPS
* for series-60 3d-edition Symbian phones folders are
c:\data\SmartComGPS и
e:\data\SmartComGPS
* for UIQ / UIQ-3 series
c:\documents\Media files\document\SmartComGPS и
d:\Media files\document\SmartComGPS
those two directories have same structure. The subfolders are used for the following purposes:

  • Audio – in this folder you can put sound files for voice prompts during navigation in the Follow mode.
  • Maps – you can copy there gps maps. We recommend to store maps on your flash card, because the sizes of these files can be very large for the phone memory and may cause a phone malfunction.
  • Names – the folder for Namesearch database (*.names).
  • Routes – the folder for Route files (*rte). You can create routes on either your computer or smartphone.
  • Tracks – this folder for Track files (*.plt). By default SmartComGPS records tracks automatically and saves them into this folder
  • Waypoints – the folder for Waypoints (*.wpt).
