    Default iGo & Mips

    Hello everyone,

    Sorry if this is in the wrong section, I tried to do a search but couldn't find anything.

    My Kia factory GPS is running iGo 8.5.11 but there aren't any map updates and the ones in the past have been severely out of date and missing features such as TTS. The unit has a MIPS processor which I believe isn't very popular. I'm trying to install my own party GPS software and map.

    Does anyone have an Australian iGo software and maps which can run on MIPS ?

    Thanks for all the help !

    Mips cpu's aren't really popular and also needs different version of iGO application. I have iGO8 which runs on mips, but this version supports only 800x480 resolution.

    You can add every map you want..

    My resolution is the same !

    So I can use any map or need to find maps compatible with MIPS ?

    Are there other programs the same or better than iGo which run on MIPS ?

    Maps don't have any relationship with the release of processors. Maps works with software that uses them, and they are the same for any kind of iGO (primo/NG @ Win/Android/IOS).
    I think there are no better software for navigation then iGO, but you can try others. Maybe some other have better coverage for Australia.

    Thank you for the help !

    When extracting the file do I just extract the main file or even the smaller folders inside ?

    ??
    You have to extract whole package, folder structure must be preserved. In that folders, put files that belong to them and you don't have them in a software package (maps, pois, speedcams...). It is common rule for every kind of software. Read this topic,there are also graphic explanations:

    Thanks ! no clue how I missed that bit.

    I've found a link for iGo Nav n GO which runs on my head unit but it can't seem to connect to the satellite. The program says it's found the GPS driver so not sure what could be causing this issue.

    Any ideas ??

    And your unit is....? And your software version is...?
    Anyway, first try to fix values for gps port and baud rate in sys.txt. For example:
    [gps]
    port=7
    baud=57600
    Igo8 program versions have built in option for scanning for this ports.
    Menu > Settings > GPS (second screen) > untick "GPS enabled" > then it shows "autodetect" button, click on it
