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.
Simply choose activate later and then accept the license. The GPS works normally then. Sure it is a bit of a pain to do this every time but you can just leave it plugged in and just put it to sleep instead of completely powering off and then you don't see the activation screen anymore.
