    Guide Streetpilot on Samsung - Guide

    I found it difficult to understand a lot of the steps when going through the forums so I thought I'd make a quick guide for others who aren't that tech savy.

    My Phone: Samsung Galaxy Core LTE running Android 4.4.2

    Connect your phone to your computer through a USB and open up My Computer.

    Step 1: Install File Explorer from Google Play
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    Step 2: Open File Explorer.
    Step 3: Select "Main Storage"
    Step 4: At the top right of the screen select the button with the three vertical dots
    Step 5: At the top of the menu hit the "i" in the circle
    Step 6: Make note of the "Filesystem Path" (eg: /storage/emulated/0)
    Step 7: On your computer open up My Computer and select your phone
    Step 8: Select your phones internal storage, not an optional micro-SD
    Step 9: Create a new folder called "Garmin" and another called "Map"
    Step10: Go to [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    Step11: I downloaded the 960x540+ 2.37 with USB Charger Fix even though my resolution is only 360x640 and it worked on my device
    Step12: Download this utility [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    Step13: On the Streetpilot Path Changer utility, open the .apk file you just downloaded. Make sure Java is working.
    Step14: Select the proper preset that matches the "Filesystem Path" you noted earlier and hit "Patch"
    Step15: Copy the new ".apk" file and paste it in the "Garmin" folder you created earlier
    Step16: On your phone open the Samsung "My Files" app
    Step17: Select "Device Storage-->Garmin-->SP2.37xxxxxxxxx.apk" then at the bottom select "Install"
    Step18: Open the new Streetpilot App
    Step19: You may get a black screen, if so try again. If it is still black try downloading a different version and verify the filesystem path.
    Step20: You may get the App to open up, but you get a grey screen that says "Select a locale" with no options. Again try another version.
    Step21: You may just get the App to open up! If so congratulations, you just need to add "gmapsupp.img" files to the "Map" folder you created.

    I can't provide support because I barely know how I got it to work!

    Maps Tested:
    Garmin Inland Lakes Ontario
    Ibycus topo V4
    TrakMarine 11
    Garmin LakeVU HD Canada (Doesn't display too much detail)
