    iGo 8.3 with Android v1.6

    Hi all

    I have iGo 8.30 working great on my Navman sat nav with maps and pois. If a mobile phone has Android v1.6, and the phone has a big free memory, can I just copy the iGo software and maps I need on to the phone and adjust the sys file with the correct screen size? Is it that simple?

    Also, if the phone is a pay as you go with no internet use (phone has wifi but I don't want to pay for internet through mobile network provider) then I take it that the iGo will run through the build in gps and as such not incur any internet useage costs?

    Many thanks

    you will have to install the .apk file to install igo. However I dont believe you can adjust the screen size via the sys.txt, hence why people on here have problem with large screen phone like the desire and have to use a different version.
    As for internet, just disable the internet connection and then you know your fine.
    Im running igo on a HTC HD2 which is currently dual booting win mo and android and niether of them use an internet connection.

    Hi Matty

    Will I find the .apk file within the iGo software I already find or do this something I won't fine and will need to download (and from where)?

    Many thanks

    it should be there already. use DJ Java Decompiler to edit igo.apk, and edit the data.gro to suit

    Thanks for the replies. For information the phone display is 'Display 320 x 480 3.0" HVGA 262K TFT'. Should that be ok?

    Re: iGo 8.3 with Android v1.6

    Hi guys

    Sorry, but I'm going to need a step by step here. It's the apk file I'm having trouble with. I have copied the Igo folder the phone sd card but I can't find the apk file nor will android allow me to open the igo.exe file from the sd card using the phone's android (1.6) packageinstaller.apk I can't copy anything into the phone internal memory as when I try through the phone itself all files are protected and read only.

    Any ideas please? :-(

    Cheers

    Hi

    As an update I downloaded an igo version for android from this site. It had the 800x480 apk file and that installed ok on my phone and loaded but of course it's far too big for my phone which is 320x480. Can someone please upload the 320x480 apk file for igo or primo?

    Many thanks
