If someone would like to test and try a modified SD update for your 5100 to run MN7.4.3-793. Here is the link.
You need to add your own Maps to the "maps" folder.
Tested with NA Q3 2009 & Q1 2010 Maps.
Zagat is NOT working -- If anyone can figure this out, please post a solution
There seems to be NO Freezing
Test and report back
Model: Navigon 5100 Max
Maps: NA Q1 2010
Model: Navigon 5100
Maps: NA Q1 2010

Hi, Thanks for the update. I am trying to install this version on 2100 regular. I am currently running 737 which is the last stable version I found. 7.4.0 would run but would not standby.
I removed all folders and files from my SD card except the map folder. Copied the 7.4.3 contents to the SD card, configured the ussersettings and core file and tried to start it.
The Navigon logo was spinning and then stopped right when the do not use the GPS while driving prompt was supposed to come up.
Just as a test, I tried copying just the files in the NAVIGON folder from the working 7.3.7, and after the restart I had a working 7.3.7 with all settings at default which is what I expected.
I have tried using different files between 743 and 737 without success, either it refuses to boot, freezes after the spinning logo, or I just have 7.3.7.
Any idea what I am missing? Files or settings? I am using Q3 2009 maps, and everything is fine if the NAVIGON folder contains 7.3.7 software. Does 7.4.3 require some additional files or settings that need to be added with 7.4.3?
Also, it looks line the eng-GBR_Heather_def_tts.sar file fails CRC check. I used one of my older files instead.
Could you please described a little more about how your copied the files to the internal memory? Are there any other files in ther internal memory?
I've copied this modified MN to the flash drive of my 5100 (not a max) as well as the Q1 2010 NA maps. I'm not able to establish a GPS lock and the TMC option is greyed out. Other than that everything seems to be right. But, obviously, if I can't establish a GPS lock then it's not going to work.
When looking at GPS status it shows no activity at all.
Any ideas what I may need to modify? It's been some time since I've tweaked my 5100- so I'm unsure of which files control what.
Scratch that- I got both GPS and TMC to work by editing the UserSettings.xml file.
The UserSettings.xml in your download default to this:
My previous UserSettings.xml had this:Code:<GPS> <Type>0</Type> <GPSPort>7</GPSPort> <TMCPort /> <Baudrate>57600</Baudrate> <DRVPrefix></DRVPrefix> </GPS> <TMC> <RadioStationScan>0</RadioStationScan> <AutoRecalculation>0</AutoRecalculation> <PreferPay>1</PreferPay> <TMCPort>1</TMCPort> <TMCBaudrate>115200</TMCBaudrate> <DRVPrefix>RDS</DRVPrefix>
I updated the new UserSettings.xml file to match those settings and now GPS and TMC work.Code:<GPS> <Type>2</Type> <GPSPort>2</GPSPort> <Baudrate>57600</Baudrate> <DRVPrefix></DRVPrefix> </GPS> <TMC> <RadioStationScan>0</RadioStationScan> <AutoRecalculation>0</AutoRecalculation> <PreferPay>1</PreferPay> <TMCPort>1</TMCPort> <TMCBaudrate>38400</TMCBaudrate> <DRVPrefix>RDS</DRVPrefix>

GREAT!! Enjoy the new setup..
I have a problem hoping you could help. I copied all the files over to my Navigon 5100 along with "USA and Canada Q1 2010.map" in the maps folder and MN7 will start but it says it cant find a map file. Any ideas on how to fix this?
Reformating usally works...it sounds like the SD file structure, which can be solved by scan disk or reformat.
Is this file valid for 5100max too?
No....try my other posting for the 5100 Max upgrade
