    Re: Uniden GNS8350

    I run a gns8350 with igo8. Huge improvement. The GNS8350 is just a wince 4.2 device that will run a PNA version of igo.

    start here You will need a different wince explorer as the one they recommend didn't work for me.

    Install igo8 on a blank SD card

    I had previously posted instructions on how to set this up on this site but it appears to have been deleted.

        Here's a copy of my SD card. It should work out of the box but needs maps, voices etc.

        It also has a mortscript file that will redirect mobilenavigator.exe to the igo8.exe file on the sd card.

            I just used the sensis maps.

            Also worth putting this on BTW -- GPS is channel 5 and 9600 baud. This needs to be set in the igo8 gps settings

                      Not sure I'm afraid. tts works for me using the modified config files I included. You could always try a new install of IGO8. Mortscript will redirect to the igo8 folder.

                        I'm about to try this on a GSN8361 (New Zealand market model) - will post how i get on -

                        Uniden Au/NZ seem to have stopped any support, and don't care about their customers
