    Via Michelin Sat Nav

    Hi Guys,

    Not sure if this is the correct place to post this... I am new here, and couldnt find a welcome to new members section, So 1st I would like to say hello...

    2nd I wuould like to ask, I can see most sat navs have there own sections, I have a family member with the above Sat Nav (Via Michelin) and looking for new maps. The company who use to make them, dont do them anymore so before they go out and buy a new unit I though I would ask on here about the unit, and if anyone knows if new maps can be downloaded for the unit?

    Any feedback anyone can give would be great...

    Many thanks for your time in reading this.

    TIA
    IKWeb

    ViaMichelin does not sell anny new maps.
    Latest maps are from 2007 I believe.

    If you want to have actual maps, you have to unbrick your device(WinCE) and you may run TomTom in an old WinCE-version or better run Igo8 on it.
    For this :
    Get a new SD-Card (non SDHC) 2GB
    copy the Igo8 folder on the SD
    create a new folder in the SD-root named InstallSD
    copy - paste all the files (not the folders) from the Igo8 folder to InstallSD folder
    rename the Igo8.exe in the InstallSD-folder to InstallSD.exe
    Put the new SD in the device and make a Hard-Reset
    And you will have Igo8 running, on my X980T there is no problem but you will not have tmc and bluetooth on your device anymore.

    I have loaded the IGO8 files to a SD card in InstallSD but didnt see IGO8.exe is that a separate file ?

    I've got a ViaMichelin Navigation X-970T New Edition and it uses Windows CE.net 5.0. Can I put Garmin on this gps? How can I do that?

    http://www.anno1777.com/index.php?i=58642 -> ANNO1777 is an online game that simulates an economic political and military system, like the real world. You are a citizen of the seventeenth century who fights on all levels to advance the social hierarchy. You can open businesses, become governor or you can build a military empire. Everything is up to you. Unlike other games of this type, the virtual money from ANNO1777 can be exchanged for real money and vice versa. In other words, a financial success in the virtual world of the game becomes a financial success in the real world.
