    Simple how to section?

    Hi Like a lot here I am new to the whole Sat Nav experiance. Good or bad I have the Predator Double Din unit from Chinavasion.
    I would like to install either Garmin or Tom Tom to the unit. I have spent a bit of time searching but I dont really understand what I have to do to get it all together.
    Is there a section with a dumbed down guide? eg what needs to be downloaded how to install etc.
    Also can I purchase a software package from Garmin or Tom Tom that will work without modification?

    Im sure I will come up with many more questions, but thanks for now

    I am in the same boat mate! Do i need to download 5 x 400mb (ish) files, and extract them all onto the SD card of my china double din sat nav? The file hosting sites do not make it an easy process and I was hoping to find some details on whether I am going about it the right way!

    I don't think TOMTOM software can be used without modification. I have TOMTOM 1 and the advert for the chinese Sat Nav, which I wanted for my caravan towing, said it could use TomTom Maps, but I tried to use the SD card from TOMTOM but it didn't work. So my guess is software compatible with windows CE 5.0 ( the OS of the chinese unit) is needed to fire up the system then it will use the maps. Just my guess, after trolloing through Tinternet. However I have emailed the seller and asked the Q. If I get a usefull reply I will post it here.

    I gather that the answer to this thread was simply no?

    Since there isent much info here i tought id fill in some blanks that i know
    Im also in the chinese 2din boat mine has win ce 6.0 on it
    Tomtom navigator 7 although praised by my seller for win ce IT DONT WORK this package is only compatible with a select range of phones
    Here is the list https://uk.support.tomtom.com/app/an...2/locale/en_gb
    It appears tomtom just dont bother to make soft for the win ce radio's

    Everything i read here and over the net is that the igo soft runs on it , getting the files now to test it on mine in belgium
    Not sure if the maps can be used from tomtom on the igo tho
