    Guide to installing iGo8 on Mio C510 and C710

    HOW TO SETUP IGO8 ON A MIO C710 WITHOUT HACKING IT?

    This method should make it possible to, even after a hard reset, just start up iGO by the MIOMAP pictogram (main menu MIoC710)
    You need a iGO program for this. I suppose you have it ready on your PC.


    Step 1

    See you have a back up of your Mio so you are able to set it back in the original state !! Very important !!!

    Step 2

    Unzip or Unrar (if necessary) the iGO8 on your PC.. Now you should have a folder called iGO8.

    Step 3

    Copy these lines into a notepad

    Code:

    [folders]
    app="%SDCARD%\iGO8"

    [interface]
    resolution_dir="320_240"
    maxzoom2d=6000000
    show_exit=1
    show_timezoneslider=1
    reset_os_timezone=1
    landscape=1

    [timezone]
    sync_os_timezone=0
    reset_os_timezone=0

    [debug]
    skip_eula=1
    smart_2d=1
    slowsim=1
    loop_sim=0
    show_speed_limit=1
    show_tmc=1
    speedcam_enabled=1
    show_arrows_on_route=1

    [rawdisplay]
    class="landscape"
    screen_x=320
    screen_y=240

    [sound]
    sound_q_length=200
    queue_length=200

    [speedcam]
    enable_at_startup=1
    disable="_SUI", "_GER", "_AUT"; for Europe

    [map]
    auto_nightmode=1

    [msnd]
    msnd.start=0

    [tmc]
    source="gns"
    port="COM,1"

    [gps]
    source="nmea"
    port="COM,2"

    Save it and name the file sys.txt. Save it on your PC for now.


    Step 4

    Now replace the original sys.txt (in the iGo folder) with the sys.txt just made.

    If you have in the iGO8 folder another folder named '2577', delete it
    When in the iGO8 folder there is a file called either 'application.dat' or 'iGO8.exe' rename it to 'miomap.exe'
    Rename gpstmc.dll to gpstmc.old

    Next copy the complete iGO folder onto a sd card

    Step 5

    Put the sd card in the sd slot of the Mio.
    Turn on the device. Press and hold the plus (+) and menu button (at the same time). Do a soft reset
    (on the bottom side of the device is a reset hole' to be pressed by a stylus, or paperclip)

    Keep holding the plus (+) and menu button pressed until you get a message COPY .
    Click 'NO' - you get an error message - Click 'OK'

    If all is well, Windows CE start screen appears, Click on the Windows logo, go to PROGRAMS, choose WINDOWS EXPLORER.

    Double click on STORAGE CARD, go to iGO8 folder, select miomap.exe, copy this file (menu-edit-copy)
    Click the BACK arrow and go to MY FLASH DISK\MIOMAP\MIOMAP. Next paste (menu-edit-paste)
    Go back to IGO8 folder on storage card and copy sys.txt (menu-edit-copy)
    Click the BACK arrow and go to MY FLASH DISK\MIOMAP\MIOMAP. Next paste (menu-edit-paste)
    Do a soft-reset (the hole at the bottom )

    From now on, iGO will start up by pressing the pictogram MIOMAP in the main menu

    Remarks

    Disable scrolling street names. to prevent OUT OF MEMORY errors

    Some (older) igo's create by themself OUT OF MEMORY errors on a C710. If that happens, do a google search for the latest data.zip (V10) and branding.zip,
    Replace the ones on your sd card.



    Enjoy!

    hello Matty538
    thanks for your method....
    I have a little problem on my C510 .....when I press the pictogram MIOMAP in the main menu, star the old miomap ...
    If I cut the old miomap.exe (inside Myflasdisk\miomap\miomap) the picogram MIOMAP don't work but if I press two times the icon new miomap (shortcut from storage card/igo8) the IGO8 application work perfectly !!!!
    /from the window CE). In conclusion, don't work the shortcut from the pictogram MIOMAP and the application miomap in the flasdisk/miomap/miomap. Can you help me?

    You would be best asking Guardian who is credited in the post, I merely copy and pasted what he sent me by PM as a suggestion for this section, I have no hands on experience with these models unfortunately.

    Re: Guide to installing iGo8 on Mio C510 and C710

    Hi, I would like to run iGo from the flash drive, without an D card, could you please tell me how to edit the sys file ([folders] app=" ? /iGO8") so that it will recognize where it is?
    I managed to run it of the sd card following this thread, but really don't know how to run it only from the flash.
    thank you

    Where does it need to go, sys.txt is already mentioned as being copied across.
