Who said it was easy to update software on a sat nav!!!!
Picked up my new shiny Navigo 4.3" V2 on Thursday and after trying it out on way to work on Friday wasn't that impressed with the software, so taking advice from the various forums that it was an easy 5 mnute job to load Tom Tom onto it thought here we go a bit of a no brainer, how wrong can u be!!!
2 days later...... I have a sat nav that is no use to man nor beast.
Anyway here's what I have done
1/. Backed up the files (maps and mobilenavigator) from the sat nav onto my PC, dont know why bu tit took nearly 3 hours to do that (should have been an indication that summat wasnt quite right).
2/. Secondly had a go at following instructions on downloading the Tom Tom 7.910.9185 uk file but then couldnt open it as it has a file extension caled "rar" which I wasnt able to open and then had to download a trial version of winzip to try and open the "rar" file and that wouldnt work so I have decided to give up and though I will just reload the original navigo files which I had backed up.
3/. Copied the original files (mobile navigator and maps) back onto the sdd card and now all I get when i try and access the navigation icon on the sat nav is a "Failed to load map data files" message.
4/. I have even tried deleting the files (maps and mobile navigator) from the sdd card and starting again but it now says I dont have permision to delete the "mobile navigator" files.
I have always been a bit of a numpty with technology and desperately need some help, can anyone offer some "simple" guidance.
