Well, I had a similar problem once, I managed to get the unit to relaod the map data using my repair dvd but I cannot guarantee this will work in your case. if your unit still has the basic operating system intact, you shoudl be able to boot it with the firmware update in the SD card and it will load, however, someone else told me they were not able to do this becasue the unit would never try to boot from the SD card. it was basically a brick.

One solution is to visit C&C wireless and pay over $100 for a map update or even send them your unit for even more $. see http://www.finedrive-acc.com/shop.cart?action=ITEM&prod_id=F400-08CP

The other solution was to send it to Fine Digital but they closed their doors in the US so they no longer support us customers. Because of this I made a DVD with map data I purchased from them before they closed and I added much better instructions; this DVD updates the firmware in the unit and loads the last map data issued to the SD card. you would need a PC with a DVD drive and SD card reader to use it. you can find these DVDs on ebay for $18 which basically covers my costs only.

Why does my Nextar gps system takes foprever to load when turn on


If it is running Win CE then it is VERY old. The GPS is probably failing to see the satelites. Probably time to replace it.

Windows 7 Tips and Hacks


You have upgraded to Windows 7, love the new taskbar, and enjoy the power of using the cool Libraries feature. But now you want more. You want the cool tips and tricks that make Windows 7 fun! So here are the best ones to help you get the most out of your new OS. We will focus on the Windows 7 interface to get you started on the road to becoming a Windows 7 Power User.

1. Use Keyboard Shortcuts Using the mouse, you can drag-‘n-dock windows to either side of the screen, or drag it to the top to maximize it. These keyboard shortcuts are even faster:
  • Win+Left Arrow and Win+Right Arrow dock the window to the left and right side of the screen
  • Win+Up Arrow and Win+Down Arrow maximize and restore/minimize
  • Win+M minimizes everything
  • Alt+Up, Alt+Left Arrow, Alt+Right Arrow navigate to parent folder, or browse Back and Forward through folders in Explorer
  • Win+Home minimizes/restores all open windows except the active window
  • Alt+Win+# accesses the Jump List of program number ‘#’ on the taskbar

2.Rearrange System Tray Icons
You can rearrange icons on the taskbar as you wish and start new (or switch to running) instances of the first ten taskbar programs using Win+1, Win+2, and so on. The cool thing is you can also rearrange system tray icons. Reorder them on the tray or move them outside or back in the tray. Take control of what you want to always keep an eye on, and from which apps you’ll require notifications.


3. Access Jump Lists with the Left Mouse Button Jump Lists usually show up when you right-click on a taskbar icon. However, they can also be accessed by holding the left mouse button and dragging upwards. If you’re using a laptop touchpad or a touch screen, this is convenient because you do not have to click any button to access a context menu.


4. Add Any Folder to FavoritesYou can add any library or folder to the Favorites section in Windows Explorer. To add a folder, navigate to it in Explorer, right-click Favorites in the left navigation pane, and select Add current location to Favorites. Now you get quick access to your favorite folders in all File->Save As dialogs!


5. Pin Frequently Used Folders to the Taskbar Right-click, drag, and pin your favorite folders to Windows Explorer on the taskbar. They will now show up in the Jump List when you right click on Explorer giving you quick access to your favorite folders.


6. Pin Control Panel to the TaskbarYou cannot pin the Control Panel to the taskbar via the Start Menu or by drag and drop. Open the Control Panel and right-click its taskbar icon to pin it to the taskbar. An advantage of this is that Control Panel’s Jump List allows quick access to recently used functions.


7. Create Keyboard Shortcuts for Programs You can create keyboard shortcuts for any program in Windows 7. Right-click the program icon and select Properties. Select the Shortcut tab, click in Shortcut key, to set the keyboard shortcut for that program.


8. Open Command Prompt in Any Folder Like the command prompt? Miss the ‘Open Command Window Here’ Windows XP power toy? Press ‘Shift’ when right-clicking on a folder to get that option in the context menu. This also works on the desktop. No power toy required!


9. View Expanded ‘Send To’ MenuPress Shift when right-clicking on a folder to get an expanded Send To menu.


10. Adjust Screen Text with Clear Type Use Clear Type Tuner for the best look on your LCD monitor or laptop screen. Run ‘cttune.exe’ from the Start Menu search box, or go to the Control Panel Display applet, and select Adjust ClearType Text from the left.


11. Get Exact Colors On Your Screen If you are an artist or you work with colors, use the Calibrate Color option in the Control Panel Display applet or run dccw.exe from the Start Menu search box. You can adjust gamma, brightness, contrast, and color balance, ensuring that colors are displayed correctly on your screen.

12. Customize the Power Button If you restart your computer more often than you shut it down, change the default Shutdown power button to Restart. Right-click on Start, select Properties, and choose the Power button action that you use the most.

13. Customize Number of Items in Jump Lists & Start Menu google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad);Right-click Start, select Properties, click Customize and choose the number of recent programs to be shown in the Start Menu and the number of items displayed in Jump Lists from the Start Menu Size section below.

14. Search Internet from the Start MenuEnable Internet search from the Start Menu using your default browser. Run GPEDIT.MSC from the Start Menu search box to start the Group Policy Editor. In the left pane, go to User Configuration->Administrative Templates->Start Menu and Taskbar. In the right pane, right-click to Edit and Enable Add Search Internet link to Start Menu.


15. Add Videos to Start Menu Windows 7 does not place a link to your videos on the Start Menu by default. To add a link to your videos on the Start Menu, right-click Start, select Properties, click on Customize. In the Videos section at the bottom, choose Display as a link.

Vertex ce82 on my laptop says ce92win power on radio trying to program vertex 2200 mobile radio


Hi Shawn,

The problem is on the screen for you to see.....

You need to downgrade your CE OS to Win CE82, else you r Vertex software won't work, but downgrading is futile, so unless you can get hold of a friends Pocket book PC running Win CE OS 82, you may have problems.

This is a Win CE Operating System fault rather than Vertex software fault.

You say laptop, Win CE OS is for the smaller Pocket Book PCs as far as I'm aware.

If you're running that OS on a laptop PC, that can cause you lots more problems.

I hope this answer clears up the issue a little.

Regards,
Peter

Hi im looking for info on how to flash or load windows ce on a neoware ca5 thin client, i have downloaded the Os but have no clue how to load it on the thin. can you please assist me


  1. Make a bootable USB drive using HP Drive Key Boot Utility (via bootdisk.com Method 2)
  2. Format the flash disk in the device.
  3. Make the flash disk in the device bootable using MBRTool (This is necessary if you installed GRUB on the disk. The MBR needs to be overwritten)
  4. From the Win CE installation folder, from drive:\<path to wince installation>\PLATFORM\CEPC\SRC\BOOTLOADER\DOS\BOOTDISKcopy all files and paste it to the flash disk in the device (These files always comes with Win CE installation)
  5. Put your build of Win CE - EBOOT.BIN in the flash disk on the device (This will be your custom Win CE image)
  6. Remove the USB drive, and boot the device. Your new build of Win CE should boot up.

My gps need install windows ce but install because I connect the cable to the computer but the computer gives unknown device message


If you GPS is at the point of needing windows CE installed then it is in a bad way. This is not done in the normal way on the Mitac Mio. It is setup using and SD cardspecific keys assigned by mitac to perform only a minimum of functions for its GPS hardware.LikeRESET +POWER then selecting different options specific to the GPS

Then getting maps on it is also different from a straight install. I suggest you contact MIO and have them reinstall Win CE and the maps for you before you compromise it totally so that it cannot be undone

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Amcor 3990 GPS navigation device screen backwards


If your screen is actually installed backwards take it back and exchange it for new one, but if the screen is not actually installed backwards then go into the settings screen on the gps unit and find the orientation section, this will change the display to something a little more readable to you. And as a side note some of these things look like they should be straight up and down but they actually designed to work sideways, gives you a wider view and the manufacturer a little more screen room to put more information onto the screen.

Blackscreen after boot - probably scanner port


It is system running under Win CE. I got answer direct from producer. The easiest way sounds: Make short connection between pin 6 and pin 7 on COM1. It shows screen again and you can set wrong setting of COM port back. I made it using a small screwdriver. Thanks for your concerning. GreetX. Jesco
