Question about GPS

1 Answer

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 contact the manufactures or something like that, and then I tried the other disc that's just white and says VR3 on it and now it says I have no navigation software on my gps. What went wrong? What should I do?

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.

Gps not working


You most likely need a firmware update. My company designs and programs GPS units and software and about 3 months ago the government changed the sats. in such a way that certain Chinese gps units stopped receiving data. Email me at justin_a_mitchell@live.com and tell me what you can about the make and model of the unit itself and I can see what I can do about getting you a firmware upgrade.

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.
