Easy to use software

GPS-Action is very easy to use. You need to undergo only three simple steps after installation:

  • Adjust software settings: here the main thing to adjust the way of geo-positioning: based on GPS, Cell location or both ways. Also you should define your working days and alarm sound volume here.
  • Create your own landmarks (if you have your Nokia landmarks already, this step can be omitted): your target places where you want the alarms to be fired and actions to be executed are called landmarks. You can define landmarks as your current place, add landmarks from ready Nokia Landmarks (for devices with built-in GPS) or define landmark coordinates manually.
  • Create alarms and actions schedule based on the landmarks: during this step you set type of action and alarm to be executed, as well as alarm frequency, minimal playtime, condition and corresponding landmark.

GPS and Cell ID positioning: available to all Symbian^3, Symbian Anna and Symbian Bella devices, also without GPS.

There are two types of location positioning: GPS positioning and Cell positioning. GPS positioning is very precise. It is achieved via satellite and it is available for the devices with built-in GPS or external GPS-receiver. This location type has its drawback: connection to the satellite is not possible through walls. So if you are inside, your GPS position will most probably not be retrieved.

For this case, and also for the devices without built-in GPS receiver, we have the second positioning type: location by Cells. Cells are available at all GSM operators, it is the mast where your mobile is receiving the information about the GSM network and your mobile operator. This info is available everywhere, where the GSM network is available. However, the CellID positioning is not so precise. As the GPS positioning, sometimes cells are situated far from each other, so the area for your landmark can be vast enough

Key Features:

  • Alarms and actions performed silently, as soon as the geographical target is achieved
  • Recurring alarms and actions with many scheduling conditions
  • Variety of actions include: change profile, change BT status, open document, launch application, launch website.
  • Action frequency can be restricted for the case you are approaching the same landmark more then once
  • Time range for the action or alarm can be restricted, you will not be bothered at night.
  • Two types of geo positioning: based on GPS and Cell information
  • Available for allSymbian^3, Symbian Anna and Symbian Bella devices, even to those without GPS receiver.
  • Full synchronisation with native Nokia Landmarks
  • Minimal alarm playtime can be set, as well as personalized alarm note
  • Customizable alarm sound for every single alarm.

How to save your battery life

There are two ways to save your battery life while you are using the GPS-Action software. You can select the Network Based method of positioning or use the CelId positioning in GPS-Action software settings.

The Network-based positioning feature is useful if some devices do not have integrated GPS chips. However, the device can still be located fairly accurately in terms of longitude and latitude. The application can use the location API to acquire the location (longitude and latitude). In network-based positioning, the data comes from

To check this, go to Tools > Settings > General. Select the positioning menu and the positioning methods. Now disable all methods except “Network Based” and change the positioning server address to If the operator provides similar services, the operator services will be used. has information about the cell ID and its longitude and latitude. The device asks the location over GPRS and pass from the data base to the devices.

If the GPS is not available, you can use the CellId positioning method. This method is available for all mobile phones that have no integrated GPS module. You should just select in the settings of the software the CellID method of positioning. Please spend not less than 15 minutes to find all the cells available in this geographical position. This helps you to at most precise find your position and use the software. This also will help you to save battery life of your mobile phone.
