Question about Thales MobileMapper CE GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Moblie Mapper CE Cannot Link to desktop

My Mobile Mapper CE will no longer connect to the desktop computer. The computer does not recognize the device and reports a malfunction. If it does recognize the USB device, it reports a failure during hardware installation. Not sure if a setting was changed or if something is wrong with the unit. If I try to connect from the MM CE it reports that it's been disconnected from the remote computer
I plugged one of our other units (MM CX) to the I/O unit I was using for the MMCE and it connects without a problem.

On your Thales, go to Start> Settings> Control Panel, then find "PC connection". Open that and make sure "Enable direct connections to the desktop computer" is checked. Click "Change Connection" and make sure it says USB then hit OK. Hit OK again close Control Panel. Disconect the GPS from your computer and reconect. It should allow access now.

Register tomtom

You need to find out which software is compatible with your device: TomTom Home or MyDriveConnect.
Once you determine which software you need, download and install it on your computer. Connect the GPS to the computer. The TomTom software will start running and hopefully recognize the device.
By creating an account using your email address you will link (associate) the device with the email address. And that constitutes registration.

Navman ezy not connecting to desktop

I had the same problem here in New Zealand. Navman would be recognized using USB.

I tried it with Windows Vista and Windows XP. In the end, I connected to windows 7, it was immediately recognized. I had the option to apply a few upgrades which I did.

After the upgrade, it now also works for windows vista and windows XP

My tomtom go 700 will not connect to my pc

The moment you connect your TomTom device to a computer, your device should ask Do you want to connect to 'computer'. Once you tap YES, it should connect to the computer. TomTom HOME then starts.

If your device is not connecting, click one of the solutions below:

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

My computer will no longer recognize my device when I connect it with the USB cable.

Try resetting the device. Press the reset button on the bottom of the unit for 15 seconds or so (you'll need a bent paperclip to push the button in its hole).

See if that helps.

You could try using a different USB cable (in case there's something wrong with that cable).

Let us know if those worked, okay?
