Question about Toshiba e330 Pocket PC

GPS device not recognized

I have used my E330 with Navigon GPS software for almost a year with some problems, but minor. Since yesterday it won't accept my Rikaline GPS at all (when the E330 is switched on and connected to the GPS, it comes with a window asking for the USB driver (unrecognized USB...). Does anyone know what this is and how to solve this?

Firstly if you have a driver currently installed on your e330 for the GPS system, install it. (To uninstall - Start => Settings => System (Tab) => Remove Programs. One of the items in the list should be something like "PL-2303 USB Driver" Highlight it and click remove. You will probably be prompted for a restart to complete the process) Next, either reinstall the driver you got originally with the GPS receiver, or if you email me I will send you the one I have got. You will again need to restart your Pocket PC to complete the installation process. When you start your Tom Tom software, you may need to configure the GPS receiver. To do this, tap on the bottom right hand side of the screen, where the signal strength meter is and again tap on the signal meter on the next screen (top right corner) Next, click configure, specify your GPS hardware (I would presume you have a generic NMEA GPS?) click select, select your devices baud rate (again unless you know otherwise, and do consult your GPS receiver manual, I think the generic is 4800 and click done. Now you should have 4 options of how your GPS device connects to your Pocket Pc. The bottom option should say something like "COM4:" Select that one and within a few seconds the GPS Status should spring into life.

It only shows Restoring factory settings and cannot switch it on or off

With the help of NAVIGON Fresh you can reinstall the software and thus return the device to the factory state. This can be necessary when the device does not work properly anymore or when the software freezes, crashes or otherwise does not behave as intended.

Please be advised that after reinstallation your saved data and favorites will be deleted. After reinstallation a software update or reinstallation of maps can be neccessary as well.

In order to reinstall the software and return the device to the factory state follow the steps detailed below:

1. Check if your device is on the compatibility list for the device restore
2. Charge your device fully with the car or home charger.

3. Connect it via USB cable directly to your PC and turn it on.

4. Start the NAVIGON Fresh program and log in to your account with your
email address and password.

If NAVIGON Fresh is not installed on your PC, you can download the
software here.
5. Go to the menu bar at the top window border and click on
"My Navigon Device" and "Restore Device".

6. If NAVIGON Fresh does not recognize your device, please contact the
service center.

7. Follow the instructions and choose the device which you want to restore.

8. When the wizard has lead you through all the steps, click "next" to
begin the device restore.

9. As soon as the device restore has successfully finished, check for
updates for your device and install them.

My Navigon 7100 no longer speaks the street names after I downloaded the latest software updates.

I had the same problem and this fixed it: Connect the navigon to your computer and go into the files directory and create 3 new empty folders, as follows: (You may want to back up your navigon 1st) After i created these empty folders, I was able to go into settings and turn Stree names on

Create these empty folders within MN6\sound folder.

Does anybody have any suggestions? Thx Much!

Navigon 2000s I cannot reset the Navigon 2000s

Well after many emails to Navigon I got the fix for my 2000s What you have to do is download the 1.2 version software for the 5100 install it on a 2GB micro SD Card. Put it in the slot and turn it on. You will have to regester as if you have a 5100 but it will work. The reason you have to use a 2GB card is the maps are to large to go on the internal memory.
