It doesn't work yet. Wait for Garmin to release a touch enabled version for the S60v5 platform. Be patient...it takes time to produce a stable program, not as easy as going to toilet to drop bombs.

Not released in SG yet. News is after CNY.

I have a Nokia 5800 and yes officially Garmin has not release a version of GMXT for S60R5 yet BUT you can still run the current version of GMXT for S60R3 with a bit of tweaking on the 5800. I got it running great and am happy with it. What you need to do is install a virtual keyboard app on top of the GMXT so that you map your 5800 keys for a few basic keys needed to run the GMXT. You can read all about it at the below link.

The above is for those that cannot wait la, and must have the GMXT running on their 5800. If you can wait then just wait for Garmin to release the version of GMXT for the S60R5. Just a matter of time only. :)

Yes, the method above is working. Nokia 5800 with GarminXT works fine, provided you install the virtual key.
I have been using it for 1 week+, big screen allows me to see further(map). Great!
