    Maybe, but I suspect you would need to re-flash it to do so, which is probably more than most people would want to get into. See my 2nd link above where another guy reflashed his interface's graphics. Each time the system boots up, it is a totally clean boot, as user memory (32MB) is completely wiped upon shutdown. So whatever you need to run, it has to be all completely on the SD card.

    Are you suggesting something like pocketmio would work? Not keen on trying that, as I heard some reports of it bricking no name chinese gps units.

    There is a directory in the flash of the units WinCE front end software, but it won't let me copy it to SD card for some reason? It shows up on my SD card after I copy it, but when I pop it in my PC, it isn't there?!?! Very strange - like it is locked from copying or something. I was hoping to tinker with it.

    Hi Guys,

    The Aussies over on golfmkv forum have been playing with something similar.

    There is a massive thread here on their efforts to hack into the CE side.

    Morris,
    Your post on gpspassion seems to have gone AWOL. Any chance of you posting the instructions etc here. The interface on my double DIN Chinese unit leaves much to be desired!
    Many Thanks
    Dave

    Any idea on what bootloader it uses, or the ARM board that it uses? I'd like to try to hack Linux on this beast and get nGhost running on it.

    I used to be in the carpc scene and switched to one of these chinese all in one units with winCE5.0. It is so much easier & much less tinkering all the time. It just works. After I mapped it to boot to a copy of explorer it opened the whole thing up. Sure, it is in chinese, and I don't know how to read it, but if you are familiar with windows in general, it is easy to navigate around. Take a look at my post here:

    In there I posted instructions for a custom GPS boot menu & all from a GPS boot SD card. It was easy to add Navigation, GPS guages & graphs, auto maintenance software, games, system files etc. I still use the head units multimedia, but that works out fine. If you really want to customize your own multimedia stuff, you can easilly add that software to the menu.

    Is this the type of stuff you are looking at?

    PS: There is also a link here where a user has updated the whole unit's firmware to customized graphics, depending on which unit you have. Unfortunately that one doesn't work with mine.
    The first URL above should be;

    I also have a Chinavasion radio deck (but mine is the single din) I am TRYING to load a GPS program into this unit (via the SD card), but have had no joy. I even went so far as to copy the software off of a Magellan Roadmate 1470 and copy that onto an SD card, but it refuses to load. (doesn't give any error messages, just won't load). I am in the United States and this is DRIVING ME UP THE WALL!!

    Please help before I break something.

    as above i have got a chinese car stereo and for the navigation part of it it was using r66 which i have changed to igo because in the navigation menu of the device it lets you choose a path to the exe , this will be most helpfull in accessing the ce shell i believe , only i have a few questions

    this device has no way to connect to a pc , all i can do is put files onto the sd card , and on the sd card there is no windows folder , only my igo folder at the moment , i assume all i need to do is copy explorer.exe for windows ce 5 to the sd card and launch it from the navigation menu of the device and ill be into ce , but where can i get explorer , also i read that there are other applications which can locate and start the explorer which is already on the device , again where can i find these , i realise everybody who comes here is asking for help on this and that . i think i already know what to do just cant find the friggin files i need
    if all you need is to access wince you can use cecmd.exe to browse the device
    here its http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?2qjjmjmwnu0
    as far as the explorer is concerned it's in the window folder but you can't copy it to the sd card because actually the hole window folder is a shadow of the firmware image there fore ether get a copy of it that was extracted from the image or use mort script to execute it in the window folder .
