I have a navig8r t50b with an old 2011 map and i used the naviextra app to update but wont and wants me to buy a new updated map?
i looked at the file and it seems the device is on win CE 6 and the folder for the software is Mobile navigator with the version number 9.2 (the icon says IGO)
How can i update the maps on this?
Rename the folder to SimpleShell MobileNavigator
and in two files GoCe.exe in mobilenavigator.exe and GoCe.mscr in MobileNavigator.mscr
Put it on the card and reset
If you are not on the card then they also like the internal
download simple shell
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
extract with 7zip
after that you can put igo in navigation try
before backup navigation
I've had no luck with Naviextras either, in fact I found them rather arrogant to deal with, 2 devices I bought came with legit Primo software & free map upgrades etc. etc. but I ended up deleting the original software because I couldn't get any satisfaction or help from them updating the maps using a Linux operating system.
Navigr CE devices run their navigation software from a folder named MobileNavigator & the executable inside this folder named MobileNavigator.exe.
So you can either do what Kikindos has mentioned above, which is essentially adding a shell that launches when you tap the navigation button, where you set your own shortcut to start any software you've added, great for having multiple programs to choose from if you so desire.
Or if you only want to run the one program you can simply replace the original software with one of the versions from the iGO section here, where you can also get newer maps, poi's etc..
Rename the folder from whatever it is called to MobileNavigator and the exe inside the folder to MobileNavigator.exe, then when you tap the navigation icon the new program you've put on should run.
Make sure you backup all your original software before you make any changes, just in case.
