    iGo 8 Newbie

    Hi guys,

    Ive just bought an aftermarket unit for my car as linked below:

    Navigation System

    I believe it is running on Win CE 5
    and the iGo8 software is 8.3.2.80621

    The nav software is on a microsd card (ive ordered a usb card reader for it, so cant do any messing about until it arrives)

    My questions becasue Im an absolute newbie:

    1. Is this the most upto date map? If not, how can i update?
    2. My unit does not appear to have post code entry, how can i get it?
    3. How can I update the speed camera databse on my unit?

    4. (down a little further because this is a final thing after the above is sorted). How can i change the skins to make it as good as some of the ones ive seen on here?


    Regards

    BluAssassin

    You are just introducing yourself.
    What are the maps and details that you need.
    Never mentioned anything.

    O yeah sorry!

    I was lookin for UK Maps + Speed Cameras + POI's

    and help with getting postcode entry on my navigation unit.

    At the moment, it only asks for City,Street,Door. With my old TT520 I found postcode entry to be far easier and quicker.
    So if this is not possible on my version of iGo, which version is it possible on? and how would I go about installing it?

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    We need to know what map version you have before we can help, is it navteq or teleatlas and it should tell you when its from, to get postcodes working you need the map file that ends in ppc.
    Skins are readily available but depend on your screen res.

    The only map version I can find on the unit is the 8.3.2.80621 dated 10 March 2009
    and I wont know about the map.ppc file until I get the card reader im afraid.

    Just been informed that my version of the iGo 8 nav DOES have postcode search on there.

    I have to enter it in the "city" field when entering the address

    Have tested and it works a treat

    You can find the map ID when you open IGO and go to the 'about' page.

    to use postcode entry just touch city option (Manchester London ETC) and put your post code in use a space after first part of it .igo8 doesnt show a postcode option but it is there

    Make your way to "Settings/Content/Maps"

    You should now see your Map version, the latest for UK being:

    If it's a Navteq map....
    United Kingdom 2010.Q2
    2010 NAVTEQ [100813]


    If it's a Teleatlas map...
    United Kingdom 2010.06
    2010 TELEATLAS [100716]
