Question about Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player
SOURCE: Web Browser Plug-in Archos 605
There is a seller on ebay (name is luhahaca) that says he is an Archos official Plug-ins reseller. Just search for 605 Plug-ins on ebay. He sells a four pack for only $38.00. I bought and installed them and they work great. Really makes the Archos functional - the way it should come out of the box. Actually, (sadly) the way it does seem to come out of the box - I was disappointed when I received my plug-ins download. All 4 plug-ins = 2kb. Web browser with widgets, extended movie and music capabilities and Real player mode. It seems to me that all of this is already in the Archos, they simply charge extra for a key to access it. It's a shame. Totally worth the price if you have an Archos, but really too bad they feel the need to force their hand into your pocket after you've just given them hundreds of dollars. I think the unit would be reviewed better, and Archos wouldn't look so petty, if these features were just enabled right out of the box. (my opinion anyways)
Anyhow, I hope that answered your question!

Go to settings and look under system.Then look where it says usb peference then see if it says windows media device if not change it to this and if that doesnt work try the other settings.If that doesnt work go to Archos.com and contact them and see what they can do.

SOURCE: map code
I had the same problem. "Invalid Map Code", etc. I went to archos.com/gps_install, and followed the directions. I had to update my 605 wifi firmware. Once I did that, I entered my map code and map version (found the version on a .txt file on the dvd, forget which one), and followed the directions from there. Seems to be working so far, although I haven't actually taken it on the road yet (can't seem to get a GPS signal in my garage).
I'll post a follow-up once I know it's working.
