Installing TT V6.000

Post by jthspace » Mon Sep 17, 2007 8:19 pm

Here is a sticky to install Version 6 and the UK map.

Benefit : version 6 will survive a flat battery or a reset without the need to re-apply a hack.

Get a 512 Mb SD card, either copy all the files on the supplied card to a folder your hard disk, or take a (small) risk and format the one that came with the A2B. Use a card reader rather than Activesync - it's faster and more likely to be successful.

The new SD card should contain the following folders and files only.

folder : GUAM
folder : ITN
folder : MobileNavigator
folder : Raster
folder : TomTom
folder : zip

NO files in the root at all.

The folder : "MobileNavigator" should contain the files as follows :

MobileNavigator
folder : Contacts
folder : itn
folder : logging
folder : voices
file : currentmap.dat
file : data.chk
file : mobilenavigator.exe
file : navigator.cfg
file ttmobile.bif

The SD should also contain the MAP folder. I have managed to get the latest UK and Major Roads of Europe map to work. Select the map most likely to fit your card. If you use the latest UK /Eur map, you will really need a 2Gb card.

The way i done it was place the map folder in the main directory, where ZIP, GUAM, MobileNavigator etc are.

Yep, GUAM is a map folder you need as it is the registered map that validates the install.

Just create a folder called UKMAP (or whatever you like) and put all of the files for the map in question in there.
