Hard reset on Route66 mini

Hi, I have a Route66 mini GPS navigator.
It hanged up and I need to make a hard reset (similar to hard reset on PDAs). I can not do it by running a program (Windows CE executable) cause device does not respond and touch screen does not work.
Soft reset (tiny hole in the bottom of deivce) does not help.

My question is: does anybody know how to make a hard reset on route66 mini GPS PNA ?

I have tried a lot of combinations of reset hole and on/of button already.
I wonder if there is some sort of recovery executable, which when copied to SD card (under certain folder and name) will be executed by OS kernel during start up and reset the system.

Thanks!

Try updating your Route66 with the latest edition of the PND software from the R66 support website -http://www.66.com/support/index.php?cid=UK&opt=updates - This will reset the sat nav to how it was when it left the factory but you will loose your favourites and history in the process. See the website for more details.

Getting it unstuck from start up screen


If your GPS battery is fully charged, and the GPS device doesn't go past your start-up screen (e.g. agreement, owner, etc) to get to a driving screen, there's a possibility your navigation software may be corrupted; i.e. it hangs. I'm assuming it stays there, at the start up screen, for a very long time ...
Have you tried to do a "reboot" ... by holding down the ON/OFF button for a (long) while (until the system shuts down and starts up again) and then let it go ? Or have you tried to do a "hard reboot" by depressing the reset (hole) ?

Turn device on and all i get is a blue screen


If your GPS battery is fully charged, and the GPS device doesn't go past your blue / start-up screen to get to a driving screen, there's a possibility your navigation software may be corrupted; i.e. it hangs.

If the navigation software is corrupted, you can (try to) restore it from your backup or download a copy (using HOME) from TomTom ... or get a good copy (from TomTom, a friend, etc.) to replace the navigation software. If you need further instructions/directions, let me know how I can reach you by email

Tevion gps model 3501 does not go to route66 when switched on,


You will need to restore Route 66 from the supplied cd, however before you do, check to see (using file explorer in active sync mode) if the file gps.txt is in the root directory, if not copy it from the directory "VDisc". this file points to the navigator.exe file located in VDisc/MobileNavigator. If any of these file are missing, you will need to do a restore.

I have an A2265FF all in one navigation unit in my ford focus, the SD card had route 66 installed on the card which I updated and since then I have lost the files for loading the navigation, I have...


I can understand your problem, this problem arises with new SD card.

So, please copy Navione folder to memory card root directory, enter the directory, use Notepad to open Loader.ini to edit, enter your correct path, for example: \ Storage Card \ NaviOne \ NaviOne.exe save you, run to enter Loader.exe navigation procedures.

I'm sure it will work out for you. The error message shows similar indication. So, do it and load your route installed. It will work out surely.
