    Hi, I have Route 66 on my Omnia in India and when I start it, it always getsstuck on 'Getting GPS position'. Today it went to 'Detecting GPS' afterI changed the hardware port to COM6 from COM9, but it's still takingages. The program port is COM3. Is there any way around this to get itto work? Can you reply on sakshiii@gmail.com please. Thanks.

Gents,

It is quite simple

1. make sure you omnia is connected to the internedt

after insalling the route 66, go to

2. route 66 main menu

3. click on extras

4. scroll down and click on update
it will download and update

5 exit and go to extras again

6. now click on MAPs, you will find that Indi map would be seen as unlocked. select and enjoy

I have used many other gps maps in India but find that route 66 for India to be most accurate among them. but please note I was told that THIS IS AVAILABLE ONLY FOR 6 MONTHS ONLY. hope some one lets us know how to extend this.

Cheers
Raj

Do I need to wipe all maps off my RAC300 before downloading a new map? I am getting an error when I try to update my maps


Yes if you are getting an error that is the best way. You may want to consider purchasing a larger memory card and copying over the original files onto this new card. Hope that helps you.

I got the VR3 gps with back-up camera less than a month ago, the first day it worked perfectly fine, then when I installed the route 66 stuff it started showing me some really long message saying to...


Ok so this happened to my gps after an improper shut down. Here is how I fixed it. Follow each step carefully and make sure your gps is fully charged before beginning.

1st open up the route 66 disk to see files not actually accessing the program. Right click on the disk and tell it to open from my computer. you will see many files one folder will say memoryimage.

2 Then on the gps click on settings and go to backlight setting backlight to the dimmest stetting. Now go into power and tell your gps to never standby.

3 Plug your gps into your computer then turn it on. Windows mobile will come up click on connect without setting up your device. Under file management click on browse contents of your device. You will now see what is actually on your gps. Open NANDFlash.

4 Now select all items except the route66 folder in the memoryimage folder of the disk and move them into the NANDFlash folder of your gps. When it asks how to transfer tell it to replace current folders with the same name. It will then take several hours to transfer.

5 On mine the route 66 exe file would not transfer back into the actual route 66 folder so I created a new folder then transferred the route 66 exe file from the route 66 folder in memoryimage of the disk into my new folder in NANDFlash. Once it is transferred you should be able to click navigation on the gps and have your gps load route 66. Your maps will be locked.

6. I kind of forgot how I did the next step because I cannot get back to where I was because I have already activated my gps. Go into the main menu from inside route 66 and either enter the extras folder or route 66 settings. Somewhere in one of these you will find a place to activate your route 66. It will then give you a website and an id for your gps. Go to the website and enter your gps id and the code from the voucher code card which came with your gps. Once entered on the website you will receive an activation code which you will have to enter into your gps. I recommend you turn off your gps then turn it back on and give it time to find you. You can go into gps status to watch for a signal and once you have a good signal it may take several minutes to locate you. After it has found you it should be working fine.

How to use Route 66 GPS set-up in nokia 6210 phone. Have tried many times with no success. Very annoying. ta Bill


I think Route 66 was used in Navigator 6110 Navigator only and it was linked with phones IMEI code. The 6210 Navigator is equipped with Nokia Maps 2.0 and Route 66 isn't compatible I think.

Route 66 Mobile 8 Windows Mobile - software update creates error


To upgrade, use the website version of Route 66 Sync rather than the version on the disk or the upgrade file from the website, both of which do not work. The website version works in conjunction with Microsoft ActiveSync.
