    Default "Local Search" on truck navcore 8.398

    As "google search" has been replaced by "local search" in live devices is there a way of getting this working on the truck navcore 8.398?

    The reason I ask is that some of my punters with x40's incl paid Live services cannot (obviously) now use google search but that still shows as the only "search" button on 8.398??

    Best option would be to contact the TT support.
    Tell them you paid for Live but have a Truck device, they will change the subscription accordingly.
    But I guess the legal way is no option...
    The NC defines what search is used if that does not match the service paid for you can't change it.
    Only option would be to have a seperate NC at hand for the search, so you see the loop?

    Good thinking (unless there's an actual way of tweaking the 8.398 itself??)

    I needed to patch the internal 9.465 to read the truck map card (as I leave the internal clean/unpatched on my own device), booted up THEN inserted the truck/8.398 card and selected truck map then used local search (tested with "station") which planned route then gave me a recent destination.
    Rebooted with truck card in and now this recent destination (local station) is in my truck map

    Soooo...yes, this can be done but not an ideal method

    Plan b)?

    Question:- Are there any Live Truck devices that still run 8.398 because, if so, there has to be a tweak/fix/patch that allows the new Local search to function?

    Just another thought d/u, is there any way of finding the bit of 9.645 that gives the Local Search button & functionality that we could copy/add to 8.398?

    No as I know no way of extracting kernel parts and include them into a new NC.
    On top of that the V8 and V9 kernel are not 100% compatible, X50's know what I mean
    Kernel contains all for the actual NC functions, so need to rebuild the kernel, find the parts for the search and get the code exchanged, after that you have to fix the checksums and create the new files.
    If someone would be able and willing to do that we would alredy have many custom NC's with nice skins and new buttons.
