Question about Sanyo EasyStreet NVM-4370 Car GPS Receiver
I am trying to get Mio pocket 2.0 R40 installed on my Sanyo 4370 model and cannot get it to work.
I followed the instructions for both the SDFree and SD installations and no success.
Found a youtube video of some one successful, but that doesnt tell the steps to install.
I am presuming the device is a non MIO model.. and followed the same
Ok, here are the exact instructions I used to make it work perfectly. I got these instructions online:
It's a helluva lot more than anyone has begun to mention about the NVM-4370 specifically, so I hope it helps the next person who comes along!!
- when you plug your NVM-4370 into your PC via USB, the directory/folder you are looking at is \MyFlashDisk, even though you won't see that anywhere. The folder MobileNavigator is within that, or \MyFlashDisk\MobileNavigator.
- I don't know if there is a way to get this going via SDcard or not, I suspect not, with our unit.
- copy the folders (from the Miopocket software that you unzipped) MioAutoRun and Media into the root of \MyFlashDisk on your NVM-4370 (again - I just mean into the open area, so that when you're done, you will now see three folders; MobileNavigator, Media and MioAutoRun.
- in the MobileNavigator folder on your NVM-4370, rename MobileNavigator.exe to MobileNavigator_orig.exe.
- in the SDFree folder of the Miopocket software that you unzipped, change the name of MioMap.exe to MobileNavigator.exe, change the name of MioMap.mscr to MobileNavigator.mscr, and then copy those two files AND Mortscript.exe to the MobileNavigator folder on the NVM-4370.
- unplug the NVM-4370 from the USB cable. When you launch the Navigator software, you'll get a choice of running your original Navigation software, or Miopocket - choose Miopocket. You'll then get another choice, and somewhere I read a guy's Posting whose only advice on installing Miopocket onto the NVM-4370 was to choose NO at this point, so that's what I did. At that point, Miopocket goes thru an install procedure. Your unit reboots (I'm typing this from memory, forgive me if I get anything out of order) and this time when you click on the Navigation icon, you'll see something start to load up, then your unit turns off. Kinda scary, but no big - when you turn it back on, you'll find yourself at the desktop of Miopocket, which is beautiful!
- when you try to launch Miomap the first time, you'll get an invitation to show the icon where your real navigation application is, show it \MyFlashDisk\MobileNavigator\MobileNavigator_orig.exe, and the next time you use that icon, your normal, Sanyo based Navigation software will pop up.
And that's as far as I've gotten. I now have Miopocket running, and I can run my Navigation software, so I'm pretty freakin happy. Thanks, Osprey, for all your help!!!

You're welcome and I'm glad that you figured it out. Also, it's nice that you provided instructions. As you said before, so many people post "I figured it out!" without thinking at all of the next guy to be in their predicament.
The only error in your instructions that I can see is that the files in the SDFree folder are not named MioAutoRun.exe and MioAutoRun.mscr; they're named MioMap.exe and MioMap.mscr. That's a not a big deal, as I suspect most people will figure out what you meant, but I thought that I'd mention it just in case.
BTW, since it seems like your device has Mobile Navigator, you can use the "Navigator" icon on the Navigation page instead of using the MioMap icon. You could also edit the Favorites page (MioAutoRun\Skin\Pages\VistaUltimate_Favorites.ini for the default 480x272 skin) to change the MioMap icon on that page to the Mobile Navigator icon (and you can change the label below it, as well). That way, you wouldn't have to use another program's icon to launch your software and MioPocket would be more customized.

Use SDFree method and assume you have extracted MioPocket on your PC's local drive
