Symbian OS 9.x (S60 3rd and 5th)
The Cellumap phone application is written in Python and packaged in a .SIS file which can be easily installed to your Symbian phone via your desktop software manager (ex: Nokia’s OVI Suite). Before installing the Cellumap .SIS file you first need to install PyS60 and eLocation module as instructed below.
If you have trouble with installation, try:
Go to phone menu: Settings -> Applications -> App Manager and set Software Installation to “All”
*Note: Due to the fact that the Cellumap and eLocation modules are “freeware” they have not been paid to be certified and you will receive a “warning” message during installation. This is the current Symbian process as described here.
Step 1: Install PyS60
Download this file to your desktop, and install it directly to your phone (ex. Click and drag it into Nokia’s OVI Suite) You can also download this file directly from SourceForge (make sure to get 1.4.5). Please install it to your phones memory and not a removable memory card. You may need to restart your phone after installing.
*Note: There will not be any icon displayed in your “applications” folder on your phone after installation for PyS60 as it is not an application.ite in Windows XP
Step 2: Install eLocation
Download Chris Berger’s eLocation module (can also be downloaded from his site here, make sure to get 1.4.5).
*IMPORTANT: Before installing to your phone, this module must be “Symbian Signed” or it will not work.
To have it signed, follow these directions:
Go to Symbiansigned web site, upload the file and fill out form with your e-mail address and IMEI (press *#06# on your phone to see IMEI), agree and submit. (You can then delete the .SIS file from your desktop, as you will receive in an e-mail a link to the signed .SIS file)

You will then receive 2 e-mails from Symbian. The first will come within 1 minute, and you only need to click it to confirm your submission. A few minutes after that, Symbian will send you a second e-mail. This will contain a link that you can click on which will start the down-load of the signed version of the .SIS file that you originally submitted. This file you can then install on your phone
AfAfter the module has been signed, you can then install it to your phone via your desktop software manager, as described in Step 1. Please install it to your phones memory and not a removable memory card. You may need to restart your phone after installing.
*Note: There will not be any icon displayed in your “applications” folder on your phone after installation for ocation as it is not an application.
Step 3: Install Cellumap
Step 4: Run Cellumap
You can find the icon to start the Cellumap Phone App in you "Applications" folder on your phone. You can then run the program.

Important! Read First!
Please remember that the eLocation .SIS file and the Cellumap .SIS file both need to be signed by Symbian BEFORE installing! Read the procedure at the beginning of this page
Also please remember that your phone must have GPS built in it in order for the Cellumap application to work.
No GPS Signal Found
If you can not acquire a GPS signal, try: 1) Standing outside in an area with a direct view of the sky, 2) enable AGPS if supported by your phone/network, 3) Try starting another GPS application and see if that works (note: make sure it is receiving an actual GPS signal. Some programs like Google maps and Nokia Maps sometimes use cell tower location info to provide a quick and rough initial fix until the actual GPS signal is acquired. Cellumap does not use cell tower positioning as it is not as accurate as GPS)
Additional info: The first time a GPS application is started, or started in a new location, ephemeris data needs to be downloaded to your device. This can take a few minutes sometimes. If your GPS device is used frequently, and in the same location/area, the time to acquire a fix will be faster. If your phone has A-GPS, this will allow you to acquire a GPS fix in areas where a direct view to the sky may be blocked, by allowing an A-GPS server to help locate you based on the weak GPS signal you are receiving. If you are not receiving any GPS signal, then AGPS also will not work. Please note that AGPS (and the Cellumap program) does not use cell tower positioning or triangulation. Although a cellular connection may be needed to connect to the AGPS server.
Internet Connection Fails
Please note that in addition to a cellular signal, you must also have a working internet connection to be able to send the recorded point data from your phone to the Cellumap database (note: this is different than SMS or text messaging). Test your phones internet connection by opening your phones web browser and see if you can access a website (eg: www.google.com). If you are not able to do this, your phone is either blocked from data (eg. some pre-paid accounts do not allow data transfer via internet), or your internet connection is not set up correctly. In either of these cases, contact your cellular operator for more info about accessing the internet via your phone. Additionally, if your phone has wifi, you can try connecting your phone to the internet via a wifi connection (you can record the cellular network signal and then upload that info to the Cellumap database via WiFi).
Keep in mind that if there is no cellular network signal available, the phone application will also fail, as there is no information to be sent to the Cellumap database.
Additionally, please check the Cellumap website for any info regarding server down-time, or new phone app releases.
Data Is Sent Successfully, but Points are not Recorded/Displayed on Map
If a point is sent with a missing field, it may not be displayed. Also, only points that are accurate within 75 meters/yards are displayed by default. To see all points, adjust the accuracy on the display settings.
