You can use MyBoot to start programs like MAPLORER, or your own programs.
How it works Most GPS systems have a button to start the built-in navigation software, such as IGO, Destinator, etc. All this button does is start a program, such as MobileNavigator.exe for IGO.

Installation • Locate the application which is started when pushing the button you want to use on your GPS. It may be located on the external memory card that came with the GPS – the easiest and safest option. • Rename the original application, e.g.
From MobileNavigator.exe to MobileNavigator_Igo.exe The button should no longer work. Don’t panic, this is normal. • Unzip the to an empty folder on your PC. • Rename MyBoot.exe so that it has exactly the same name as the original application (e.g. MobileNavigator.exe – without the _Igo), and copy it to the place where the original application used to be.

Then, add buttons to start your additional applications.
If you have one called “Maplorer.exe” in the directory Maplorer, in the external storage card SDMMC, add a line like Button2 = ' SDMMC MAPLORER maplorer.exe'; Maplorer (the SDMMC indicates the external card, MAPLORER the directory containing the application, maplorer.exe the application).

For iGO Primo you will need maps marked as 8.3 or R3 (They are the same) Any maps which are 8.0 are years old. The Dem file displays hills and valleys in the background when the map is visible and in 3D mode, It looks incredible sometimes, but needs a lot of processing power and RAM, Dem files are optional. For guidance my Mio M400 has no problems with using Dem files.
On a new install don't overload the device, ie, Only install one map, Test, Then install speedcams, Test, and so on. Otherwise you may run into problems. You will also need to find out what the GPS settings are as Primo won't find them automatically. Tosamjabre wrote:second one is easer to setup.

That is not exactly true in all cases. It is highly dependent on two things: 1) The hardware device involved 2) The existing sys.txt in the package downloaded--if the settings in sys.txt are wrong for your hardware, neither iGo8 nor Primo will operate correctly.
Though, in some cases (again, dependent on the hardware), a minimal sys.txt or no sys.txt at all will work just fine. Offline Joined: Wed May 04, 2011 7:25 am Posts: 1554 Location: Politzania Has thanked: 0 time Been thanked: times.
