  • Installing maps

    Good morning

    Maybe it is just me and it's really early and all, but I don't find any info on how to actually add maps to FD. I have PPC Version of Destinator and installed FD, but it only has the London map it comes with.

    So how do I add a map?

    Thanks for your help

    1.Put your new map in the folder Destinatorapps/destinator
    You can see the London map in there also

    2. Run FD, go to menu-next-switch map and select your map
    The road is long but we are getting there.

        You don't install the destinator program, just find the zip file of the map you want and extract it into a folder in C:\DestinatorApps\Destinator

        So you end up with C:\DestinatorApps\Destinator\UK with a few files in it.

        Oh, don't forget to put the WCE.txt file in there too..

            :P Figured it out myself and removed the post, didn't want to spam the forum
            with posts...

            As I knew London was a map that came with FreeDrive I just
            searched for the .poi and found the folder where it was supposed to be..
            Started it up, changed maps and everything worked.. Almost anyways..

            Cheers
            /p

                              The same problem ...

                              Hi,

                              I've bought MIO168RS (Windows Mobile 2003 SE) and have installed the Destinator 3.075.
                              Using the local map it works perfectly, but I couldn't load the France
                              map from Destinator 3 on the external SD memory card.

                              First I've tried the cloned version of Destinator 3, but it failed to install notifying that the processor/OS doesn't fit.
                              My friend uses this Destinator's version with the older MIO168 (Windows Mobile 2003 - not SE) and it works fine.

                              Then I've tried the original Destinator's version (from another friend), but
                              it notified that can't connect to the mobile device.

                              Is there a solution ?

                              Thanks

                              Zeev
