Samsung Jet S8000

samsung-jet
Samsung has officially unveiled the Samsung Jet S8000. Samsung Jet S8000 is a smartphone with multi-task manager and Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, so it is good to go for the corporate world.

Samsung Jet S8000 has a stunning 16M WVGA AMOLED display that measures 3.1″ and has a 800MHz processor. Combined with the built-in GPS receiver you can be sure that Samsung Jet S8000 will deliver great GPS navigation experience. If only we knew which navigation software would be on the device.

It has 5MP camera, built-in GPS as we just mentioned, DNSe & SRS Sound Effect technology, and DivX and XviD video support.

    Hi i recently purchased a samsung jet s8003. I was researching on the net and all their websites showed that the jet had a 3d life like navigator. So i purchased the phone only to find out that there is no navigator. only google maps. I am greatly disappointed with this phone. And when i contacted samsung they said that i have to purchase a software on my own. This may only be for my country Singapore. Any idea where i can get the original samsung jet navigator software?


  4. Jarno Says:

    There is a navigation on it. In the Menu go to: settings -> phone settings, if you scroll down there, you will see “navigation” standing there. It only said i had to install Route 66 software, but i don’t know where to find it yet :P. But yes there is navigation on it.


  5. Eric Says:

    Besides Google Maps, which is a laugh on the Jet, with tiiiiiiiny typeface…

    You get GPS on the Jet, that’s it.
    If you want real navigation, try out AmazeGPS and if you do, install the version for the Samsung Eternity. That one works great. Only thing is that you can not use both GoogleMaps and AmazeGPS in one go. So if you used one, set the phone off and on again and use the other.
    But why should you use GoogleMaps anyway…

    Oh: AmazeGPS is FREE and has GOOD support by e-mail.

    Check wap.amazegps.com


  6. joshua siew Says:

    does the amazeGPS really works on SamsungJET ? i just bought this phone as well and looking for a navigation software to test the GPS.


  7. Wan Says:

  8. Rick Says:

    hi
    i found this link on how to downlaod the Route66 gps navigator
    http://www.66.com/samsung/index.php?cid=UK&act=2&cat=2&scat=1
    try it


  11. Noha Says:

    Hey all of you try this link
    and tell me if it works
    as I want to buy this mobile
    http://www.66.com/samsung/index.php?cid=UK&act=2&cat=2&scat=1

    it has the steps on how to activate the gps navigator route 66


  12. Scanti Says:

    I’ve installed the software and it works OK. You can buy the basic UK street map and female (and presumably male) voice for free. However you have to pay if you want it to calculate a route for you.

    It’s occasionally a bit fussy in getting your position. Usually it finds your position within a couple of minutes but one time it took about 20 minutes before it could pinpoint where I was. (In fact, as I was only using it to test it, I had almost reached my destination before it started giving me directions).

    The route finder recalculates your route very quickly if you decide to take a detour. Sometimes it gets confused if you go under a bridge giving you incorrect directions but it quickly gets back on track.

    The address search is terrible. It couldn’t find 2 out of 3 addresses I tried, even when I included their postcodes. I had to go to http://www.nearby.org.uk/coord.cgi?f=conv to convert the postcodes into long/lat co-ords.

    If they can sort out the lack of address searchability then I wouldn’t mind paying the subscription to use it.


  13. Jeck Says:

    The Jet doesn’t allow me to create lengthy memo entries, or sufficient characters into under Tasks/Calendar entries. Its quite frustrating when I need to type in abbreviated form, instead of full words.

    I often need to take long notes on-the-go, hence the need. Anyone know whether its possible to overcome this problem?


  14. moosa Says:

    hi, i bougth a new v (s8003) and there is no navigation on it


  15. lisa Says:

    i had a message to say “one or more resource files are missing. Please use the route 66 sync software inc on cd/dvd to reinstall the application.” but i cant find that on the cd. Only got this phone really for the GPS very confused


  16. John Says:

    How did you get route 66 working? I tried to install and it said I had to activate navigation on Samsung Jet (makes sense) but with my Jet (Orange) the only GPS setting has no navigation option…just a satellite status option? Ta


  17. John Says:

    It’s not a smartphone. It’s uses TouchWiz 2.0


  18. Ian Says:

    Hi,

    just got my Jet and was disappointed with the GPS function that was installed….or not but found this link using opensource maps

    http://we-travel.co.cc/joomla/


  19. Chief_x2 Says:

    Open up your dial pad and enter the following, *#6984125*#. Choose INTERNALS and enter the following, *#9072641*#

    Here you can enable navigation and some other stuff, particularly if you copy java apps/games to USER/MASS/JAVA/GAMES using tkfileexplorer, you need to recreate your java DB using the internals menu.


  20. Chief_x2 Says:

    Okay, This is how you enable the Route66 navigation link on your phone.

    Open up your dial pad and enter the following, *#6984125*#. Choose INTERNALS and enter the following, *#9072641*#. Scroll down to LbsApp. Select Navigation. Select Enable. Select Save and come out of the menu. The navigation icon should be in the main menu. If not, just reset your phone.

    If this does not work then you need to unbrand your phone, try firmware S8000XEIG2 and then enable navigation using the above method.

    After you enable navigation, attach your phone to the route66 software using mass storage mode and it will do the rest.

    Let me know if it helps cause I had to do it for my Mrs and it works now. Have fun.


  21. GPS navigation on Samsung Jet S8000 » GPS NEWS and REVIEW Says:

    [...] had talked about the Samsung Jet S8000 back in June and told you it had GPS navigation capabilities (well, what doesn’t these days?) [...]


  22. Adrian Says:

    This is how i put in the sat nav…first go to http://www.route66.com and download the relevant software to your computer then once thats done plug in your phone and follow the wizard set up guide which basically go into your settings then phone settings scroll down to navigation select on and save also on same page select pc connections then mass storage evrything else should fall into place once connected back to phone and route 66 software…..you must have a extra memory card installed for this to work!!!


  23. Will Says:

    Will going into the internals and enabling navigation void the warranty?


  24. kareem Says:

    it works for me buddy ,, Chief_x2 U r brilliant man :)


  25. Chief_x2 Says:

    It shouldn’t void warranty and you can always set it back to off if you want.

  55. HAMIDO Says:

    Samsung Jet experts,

    I’m trying to use skype on S8003 for VoIP internet calls. Anyone has any idea if FULL Skype can work on Samsung jet by any means. Honestly, I found that Samsung software is horrible (the phone operating system and the PC software that comes with the phone). Any idea also about Android OP system. How to install it on this phone??

    Cheers,


  56. Raja Says:

    Samsung jet S8003 india users can enable GPS navigation menu using *#6984125*# But the firmware needs to be S8003DDIF4. IG1/IG2 will not accept this code.
    I have enbaled the navigation menu but yet to try the route66 update.

    For those with firmware IG1/IG2 try following code (not sure if it works…found somewhere)

    1) Enter Admin setting menu *#5239870*#
    2) Enter Internal menu Master key *#7092463*#

    Good Luck. If it works (or not) let others know !


  57. ZK Says:

    For those with the S8003 jet, I just managed to get route 66 up and working. Lemme run through everything just to make it simpler for everyone. You need to have a memory card inserted in your phone for this to work.

    1) Open your phone’s dialpad and type in *#5239870*# to open the admin menu.

    2) Select Internals and type in *#7092463*#
    (These codes may change every few months- but this is it as on October 2009)

    3) Scroll down the menu that appears and chose LpsApp -> Navigation and click on enable. The phone may restart itself at this point, if not restart it manually.
    The navigation icon should now appear in your menu. When you open it, you may get a “one or more resource files are missing. Please use the route 66 sync software inc on cd/dvd to reinstall the application.” message.

    4)The S8003 does not come with route 66 on the cd so you’ll have to download it. Click on the following link:
    “http://www.66.com/samsung/index.php?cid=US&act=1″- just select your phone model (8000) and download the program.

    5) Once you’ve finished downloading it, DO NOT INSTALL IT.

    6) First, on your Jet, go to Settings- Phone settings- Pc connections- Mass storage

    7) Next, make sure you are out of the menu and back to your phone’s homescreen and then plug the phone into your PC using your USB cable.

    8) Click on the Route 66 sync installation file and it will automatically do the rest.

    9) During this time the program may ask you to eject and reinsert your phone from the PC and will ask you to sign up. Once you’ve done this and set up an account with route 66, you’re good to go.
    (I personally had some issues with signing up, the text didn’t appear in the boxes when I typed- just deselect the option to inform you via email about Route 66′s updates and try typing again. You can reselect it after you finish entering all the information if you want)

    10) At the top left corner of the Route 66 screen, you should see their Store. Click on that and in the search bar type in the country map you are looking for ex: India, United Arab Emirates, Singapore. The road maps for ALL COUNTRIES are free to download. Some languages and add-ons are also provided free, depending on different countries. (As long as it says FREE on the bottom) Select as many as you like, they will appear in your shopping cart at the bottom left of the route 66 screen.

    11) Select check out and a screen with all the items (maps, languages, etc) you have chosen will appear onscreen.

    12) Select next and wait til they are completely loaded and then unplug your phone.

    13) Go to the navigation icon, if it asks you to enter a lisence or voucher code select NO. You can now access road maps of the countries that you selected to download.

    14) Remember that ecah country needs a different map downloaded accoridngly. The roads and areas are all marked extremely well- obviously not all buildings will show up.

    15) For navigation along with voice guidance for walking/driving, you will require to pay (voucher code). Play around with it a bit and you’ll figure it out.

    16) The compass on the phone needs to be calibrated- apparently it needs to be rotated and twirled around until it gets it’s bearings but I’m still unsure how to go about it.

    17) The ‘Help’ section on the route 66 program should provide answers to any other questions you guys may have.

    Hope this helps S8003 owners :)


  58. Patrick Says:

    any other navigation software aside from route 66 that doesnt need any voucher code to activate voice guided navigation??


  59. Patrick - Philippines Says:

    Just a note when using GPS, you must be on the road while using it or not in a covered area or else it may not work. To check your satellite details and your bearing you can go to Settings>Phone Settings>GPS Settings>GPS position. You can check on how many satellites you can recieve and your current bearing. By the way, check first if internal GPS is selected thru GPS navigation via OPTION. REGARDS!!


  60. Patrick (S8003ME)- Philippines/Jeddah K.S.A Says:

    Route 66 is cool, the only thing you really have to pay to activate the voice guided navigation. I’m using K.S.A. maps and it is accurate even the names of the streets.


  61. ice Says:

    Hey all the Samsung JET users ..

    The phone is really awesome …
    Initially I also got dis heartened when I could not use the GPS functionality… but later manged to get the Navigation activated and installed the route 66 s/w and sync’d it with the Jet..

    Now it works perfectly fine even for the indian roads which are dynamic (-:D) lol …. just install the country specific maps and u r good to go…

    The jet is very powerful when I compare its re-routing calculations which comes quickly almost in a second only, thanks to its fast processor.

    Steps to activating the navigation in Jet 8003 is as follows:
    1- *#6984125*#
    2- scroll down then chose “Internal”.
    3- master code required!, click on gray area numeric key board will appear, type *#9072641*#
    4- chose ” LpsApp -> navigation ” click on enable.
    5- go to menu navigation icon should be present.
    6- from your computer vist “http://www.66.com/samsung/index.php?cid=US&act=1″ select your phone model download the program,then install it on your PC.
    7- the program will ask you to Connect your mobile witm PC throw USB cable. follow the instructions,download the maps,enjoy!!!!!!

  74. ZK Says:

    Bapi it’s definately a problem with your internet. If you have a reliance data card, try moving your computer to a different location OR using a different computer and try downloading it from there. The network reception in your current location may be poor.

  78. Priya Says:

    Hi! I recently bought a samsung s8000 as a used phone from ebay and am now having trouble! A few of the buttons on the side of the phone do not work as they should: the down volume button just brings up the call history, the camera button brings up the menu not the camera and then within the camera application doesn’t take photos and the lock button only locks the phone but then doesn’t unlock the phone (you have to press the button on-screen to unlock the phone). So I was just wondering if it is a problem with the phone or there is a way of changing the button functions? Please help!!!


  79. wan Says:

    Does anyone know that samsung jet support garmin GPS navigator? if have that will be the best. I had got the Route66 installed in the jet and it work. the only thing is that the route66 navigator is abit weird, when i was driving, i compare the route66 with my garmin 204 GPS, the garmin seen to get the better route then the route66. the route66 will take me to a longer and funny road to reach the place i want, but the garmin just take me to the freeway and i will reach the same place.


  80. zk Says:

    Sorry Noman, no luck with that yet anywhere. Eventually I guess someone will come out with a code generator. We’ll just have to be patient.

    @MjkSoft: If you’re talking about widgets like Youtube, Weather etc, you just need to drag it back to the sidebar and it dissappears from the homescreen.

    @Aniket: It’s best not to mess around in the Internals. I don’t know how to restore the settings through the admin menu, but you can try restoring the factory settings to the phone and see if that helps.

    Thanks.


  85. Matias (Argentina) Says:

    Samsung jet suck’s. I bought it 1 month ago, and it kept reseting when I turn it on.
    I went to the waranty service and they told me it has water inside (and it only supported a small rain) so I had no warranty.
    I changed to nokia 5800, wide better phone, where you can install Garmin.


  86. Emanuel Says:

    How can i can download free the route 66 for samsung jet?


  87. zk Says:

    Conrad, I have mentioned in my above step by step guide how to download maps for your specific country. Step 10. Scroll up and check it out. All road maps are free to download without voice navigation.

    Hi i recently purchased a samsung jet s8003. I was researching on the net and all their websites showed that the jet had a 3d life like navigator. So i purchased the phone only to find out that there is no navigator. only google maps. I am greatly disappointed with this phone. And when i contacted samsung they said that i have to purchase a software on my own. This may only be for my country Singapore. Any idea where i can get the original samsung jet navigator software?

    Adnan:
    Same happend to me. Netherlands


  91. martin Says:

    the samsung jet officially supports the route66 navigation software which you can download from this link:
    http://www.66.com/static_media/updates/sync9/samsung/ROUTE%2066%20Sync%20setup.exe

    the maps are free but to activate the navigation features (called drive to/walk to) you need a licence which costs £40 a year!


  92. Ryan Says:

    Wan,
    did u buy the license code for navigation? can the code be reused?


  93. Della Says:

    Steps to activating the navigation in Jet 8003 is as follows:
    1- *#6984125*#
    2- scroll down then chose “Internal”.
    3- master code required!, click on gray area numeric key board will appear, type *#9072641*#
    4- chose ” LpsApp -> navigation ” click on enable.
    5- go to menu navigation icon should be present.
    6- from your computer vist “http://www.66.com/samsung/index.php?cid=US&act=1″ select your phone model download the program,then install it on your PC.
    7- the program will ask you to Connect your mobile witm PC throw USB cable.


  94. oliver Says:

    how to scroll down?? and i cnt find the internals dude, even the lbsApps, so sad..:(


  95. Richard Lower Says:

    Do not buy the subscription for Route 66 on the Jet. It is absolute garbage.
    Use the money towards a TomTom, far superior.
    I am very very disappointed with route 66 and would ask for a refund if one was available.
    The worst thing I have bought for a long time. A real waste of money.


  96. Richard Lower Says:

    Forgot to say that the Jet is a brilliant phone.
    Puzzled as to why Samsung would even think about having route 66 on it.


  97. Gabriel Says:

    I had bought a month ago S8000, and when I turn it on, it continue restarting a lot of time, anyone know how to resolve the trouble or how can I reset the phone. Gabriel

  105. Lulu Says:

    @Adnan or anyone out there who thought that the 3d Navigation is for GPS Navigation, you misunderstood that. That 3D Navigation is Menu for your phone like the Album, Music Player, Video Player, Radio, Game, Internet etc etc etc. I just thought I’d share that little info.


  106. coolman Says:

    hi! i updated the S8000 jet but i had an error on the camera driver:( now when i press the camera button the phone is blocked for 30sec and restarts. any ideea what can i do?

    coolmanlyv@yahoo.com thanx a lot! best regards!


  107. Andy Says:

    I recently bought the samsung jet 8000 and was worried about the comments here about the 3d navigation software from route 66 not being free, or even worse, not working. I followed the instructions about downloading the software from the samsung site and connecting the phone – and it all works great, and is free. I have the maps for GB and northern Ireland and France for free, as well as a choice of voices for directions – and all in either 2d or 3d (at an angle setting of my choice).
    As far as I am concerned its the best software you can get for free, and meets my needs. If I wanted I can pay for extras like city guides or additional points of interest, but I don’t need these yet, but will consider if I start to use more.
    Not as complicated as everyone says – just follow the instructions on the tin!


  108. Ale Says:

    Okay first off, i also bought the s8000 thinking the gpos would work great, but it doesnt. I downloaded route 66, activated navigation through the hidden menu on the phone and isntalled all of the europe maps on the phone, all maps where free. the thing is route 66 charges you 120 euro for navigation (for all of europe, 30 euro for just one country). Now a gps with just maps and no navigation is pretty damn useless. Fortunately though you can get a java based gps navigator (Wetravel) which is 100% free, you can get their ready made maps or use Garmin non NT maps which can be converter to wetravel format and used on the S8000. The only problem is that the conversion takes a very long time, my comp has been running non stop for 24 hours and it barely made it to 50% (2.4ghz dual core processor).
    so yes you can get free navigation, but the gps antenna is quite weak so i suggest purchasing a bluetooth antenna to pair with the phone or else if a cloud goes over you byebye signal..


  109. john Says:

    Thanks Rajesh for your advice. the Route 66 works on my Samsung jet. Unfortunately there is not the map of Mauritius..:(

    in the phone it got enabled but after installing route 66 the psg appears pls check the network connection when i connect and tried to install it


  121. Solution Says:

    ok saw some posts about the route 66 built-in GPS taking a lot of time to find your spot, this is because this crappy GPS requires nearby satellites (which is good in the way that it’s 100% free). However, when there are no satellites nearby, the GPS won’t find your spot.


  122. chris Says:

    Does anyone know why the uk maps on route 66 don’t give activation for Samsung Jet?… I downloaded the free uk map but can’t get it working on the phone … route 66 sync shows the files as deactivated … help … their software is Sh*t


  123. Ian Says:

    I cannot get the 66 to work, I have followed all the instructions and all I keep getting is your device is not connected properly.
    Please help!
    If I’d have know it was going to be this much trouble I would never have wasted my money on this Samsung crap.


  124. Mocha80 Says:

    Dear All;

    I found an interesting part of s3000 jet. As you know to get your imei number, you have to write *#06#. When your imea number appears on the screen, press # couple of times and then there will be an error text appear. Keep pushing #, then you will see administrative menu to control your phone.

    Good luck pals…

    I have the route66 software working on the phone (ish) but it will not find my location no matter how long I leave it. Also when I zoom into the UK map I don’t get any locations or roads, just a blank country! any advice would be appreciated.


  129. Crapsoft Says:

    You need to buy a license key for the software to work ! It’s from the STONE AGES but you need to pay for it so the guidance works.

    So, if you re braindead, you would actually PAY for this piece of shit software called ROUTE 66 … they should call it ROUTE 1966 .. more acurate.

Then i decided to cancel my purchase. Ohh man i’ll buy a tomtom with life time free maaps for cheaper than £pound. These idiot samsung guys think they are sooo clever. but i tell you what, they are not!! They are losing customers by doing this.

    Let’s be real, I have this phone now for more than a year an yes, the gps isn’t very good to say the least, it starts beeping in my pocket, it collected loads of dust behind the screen and it’s standby time is crimminally short. But it has this beautifully OLED screen, and it plays all the divx files you can find on the internet. The media player plays about everything you throw at it… The most amazing thing is that hooked up to a quality hifi set with just the 3.5mm jack… It plays like a dream! The sound quality is the best I ever heard from an mp3 player… And this isn’t even a mp3 player per se. It’s a rudy phone!
    Okee the gps is bullocks who cares, you can still call your girlfriend with it, it has a decent camera, video is top, and what about that screen?! Trust me it’s the future best!


  152. B. Orbeson Says:

    If you really want the GPS function of this watch, buy something else. Lovely screen but not finding it reliable even as a phone.


  153. Bob Says:

    @fretlessfender – GPS works great for me!

    @emrah – Route 66 is free on this phone, but you do have to pay for the voice guided navigation
