Question about Whistler WGPX-550 GPS Receiver

2 Answers

Error code. I have a Whistler WGPX-550 GPS unit and cant seem to get the US and Canadad maps to work when I down load the file to a 2 gig SD card. I can get the US and Canada maps to work individually. I get an error mesaage of cannot fine houlo.exe and then it locks up. I tried formatting the drive and re-loading the map on the sd card severak times and still get the same error codes. Maybe the file is courrupt on the cd that was provided to me?

Re: error code.

I had the same problem, but the fix was to download directly to the SD card.I had been downloading to the pc and then copying to the card.Once I downloaded directly to the card everything worked great

Re: error code.

THe unit can not accept a 2GB card this is why you are getting the error messages. FYI - Canada maps inlcude the bordering states so if you leave on a bordering state and travel to canada you can just load canada on a 512MB card.

Do you have the CD that came with the GPS? if so, does it list 1 model or two? If two, reformat a 1GB card (unit can not read anything higher than 1 GB) and open the USA folder on the CD and copy the 1 file and the 1 folder in the USA folder to the SD card. You must copy the file and folder over to the SD card and not the folder that is holding these two item, if so it will not fix the problem.

Maps needed...... HELP!!!

If you call Whistler 800-531-0004 they can get you set up with a DVD. If you purchase the standard DVD (or SD card preloaded) you will get a discount on updated maps when they become available.

Error message

The WGPX-550 doesn't support 2GB card. You can have Canada on a separate card (512MB will be big enough) and Canada includes the bordering US states
