    IGO 8 install on Chinese Sat Nav Windows C.E 5.0 HELP PLEASE

    Hi guys

    I have just bought a chinese sat nav / dvd player for my truck and would like to be able to run IGO 8 on it. The operating system is windows C.E 5.0 and its a 800 x 480 screen resolution.

    Can somebody please point me in the right direction of where I can download a version of IGO 8 and european maps that will work in this please as I'm pretty confused!

    The link to the sat nat i bought is http://www.compucn.com/Outlander-dvd-gps-player.html

    Thanks is advance. Jim

    i don't think you can install Igo on a Car system as you cannot access its flash?

    It specifically says on teh website that its supports IGO and on the mitsubishi forum there are people that have this running.
    As far as I understand it IGo is contained on a SD card and executed from there but I am not sure, hence posting on here for guidance. All help appreciated.

    Oh yeah I forgot! igo can also work via SD Card if that slot is available on the device then all you need to get the software which you pretty much get anywhere.Once you have the files on the SD card and stick it in it should start up automatically. I think it is very easy via the SD card method, now get the files for the program you could search on the forum or head over for a torrent.

    Thanks, I got this one and put it on my SD card and dumped the maps into the map folder. When I prompt my system to run the Igo.exe file it says "database cannot be found". Do you guys have any idea why this would show up?

    I may have made the mistake of not deleting the sys.txt file that came with the software. Is that the problem? If i were to delete it and point my system to the igo.exe it will create a new sys.txt file?

    Any other notable changes I need to make?
