    Navigon 7310 - Updating maps issue

    Dear all,

    I've tried to install Q1.2011 maps on my European Navigon 7310, and it is not working as it should.
    Here's what I've done:
    - connected the device to a PC
    - edited the /NAVIGON/MAPS folder and
    - copied DrawSettings.nfs and Terrain_NA_USA.nfs
    - copied Landmarks_NA.nfs
    - copied California.map, NavigonRealityView_NA.nfs, Phoneme_NA.nfs, TMC.nfs (and rename the previous as TMC_old.nfs),
    - edited the /NAVIGON/POIS folder and
    - copied USA_CA_ZAGAT.pom and Zagat.nfs
    Then unplugged the device properly, and changed the map Europe to USA.
    The device restarted, and I tried to visualize the US map... with no luck: only a blank page.

    So maybe I missed something ?
    Can I install the files to a uSD card, instead ?
    What is the structure of the file, at SD root ?

    Hope you could help me, I coming in USA quite soon.
    Thanks in advance !
    Best Regards

    First thing I should have noticed: maps files are ".maps" with Q1.2011 archive I've found here... and the files on my device are ".nfs" files.
    I think I missed something...

    A little help would be very appreciated !
    Regards

    Well, it seems Navigon deals with ".map" files too.
    I connected the device to the PC,
    - removed most of the .nfs map files (France, and so on...),
    - then copied to folder \MAP\, California.map, Terrain_NA_USA.nfs,
    - changed the TMC.nfs file to the new one provided
    - created folder Landmarks, and put Landmarks_NA.nfs
    Then restart the device, switched to Navigon_An_USA_Q1.2011 map, reboot, and... voilà !
    The map of California was here, zoomable.

    Next, I will add other files, like POIs, Phonemes and so on !
    I'll keep you in touch !

    Regards
