Hi, im new to this sort of thing so ill try my best to give much detials i can, i have owned a Eonon E0851 dvd player with a gps box E0855, i have had it for about 2yrs and now i wish to update the maps and software for it, i dont know very much about this unit but what it tells u in the book is, the gps box is as follows,
operation system: windows ce.net 4.2
cpu: samsung 400mhz
im not sure where anymore info can be found. when i click on gps it shows something about navteq at bottom left and smart2go on right, once i put sd card in pc it shows it has MobileNavigatoron it, im not sure if it can have another gps software on it but any help would be greatfull.
i am looking at buying a double din gps unit from ebay if i cant get figure this out.... ( )..
you might want to have a look at my thread, it will help you
Thankz vk3fffj, i did try destinator but it just froze... thankz to hollowman ur post was very helpfull but still didnt work, i did DL the smart2go on ur post but found it to be a differant version to mine and the maps are the same .. i am happy to keep the same smart2go software but just put newer maps on it .. my maps go back to 2006 it would be nice to have 2009 maps as i have got lost afew time by its directions.
try installing igo8 on it.... read thru the igo8 thread of mine
i did try destinator but it froze at the load screen .. i dont know if im doing something wrong or not.. as for trying igo8 i couldnt find it.. .. if more info is needed let me know and ill see if i can suply it... here is a link to one im thinking of buying for my pajero 99 can someone have a look and tell me if im getting into trouble or if it is a good buy...
hollowman, i did try igo8 but it came up with black screen then came up with a msg saying that it didnt start last time do i want to restart to factory settings Y or NO, clicked y and nothing it came up again then clicked no and same thing happen,, i dont know , im downloading the route66 from ur post and try that, i am following the instructions right but something is not working... are there any new maps out there for smart2go that are not old ones.... i can only find old maps...destinator freezes on the start screen... igo8 doesnt load... i wish this was easy, if it going to be this hard to get new maps i might just go and buy a portable one from the shop as least u get updates with it..
now i have tried route66 and no go... im starting to give up now .. been at this for weeks.. i got afew more to try yet.
your trying to many apps at once, try and resolve one issue at a time..... igo will work, you just gota ask the right questions and do some reading.... igo is easy to get working...
i would assume that the SYS.TXT file needs to be edited for it to start.
are you using my igo? if so, delete the sys.txt file (BACK IT UP FRIST OR MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE ORIGINAL ARCHIVE SOMEWHERE)...
then you can start to build up the sys.txt from scratch....
if you have a look at all my posts, it says something along the lines of it will work for some and wont work for others, every unit is different.....
im sure route66 may even have issues loading up ... but definatly give it ago..
nah, dont bother with smart2go maps, they are old and there are no updates ....
having a CE 4.2 does not help your cause either, it will work, but 4.2 can be stupid sometimes, CE5.0 is much better and more compatible...
i think you should get that double din one on your first post... looks good, its the same as mine (mine looks different but still the same) then you can get all of them working with only minor hickups.....

a mate told me to go into this .. settings/general settings/about, and it shows .. (4.1.14388 Oct18 2007) if this helps
of what application ???
I have igo8.0.... running on the E0855
Copy igo8 folder to sd card
Copy YFAUTORUN from original card
to sd card and change text to
i have tried igo8 again downloaded from hollowman the required software and pasted onto sdcard and done the sys.text change as what BIGECB said... it started at black screen and came up with a warning saying, ( it did not start last time do i want to reset factory setting and lose poi,track and settings, YES OR NO ), no matter what i click it always just comes up with the warning all the time... i have had destinator ( from hollowman ) on the gps but it froze at a loading screen...
BIGECB, maybe u can copy ur sdcard and post a download here
igo8.3 from hollowman dosn't want to work on our wince 4.2 units ??
Works fine on wince 5.0 units
im using igo8 R1 series v8.0.044366
and sensis R15 (081027) map
Later versions available from
Hollowmans polnav works fine "thanks"
hope this helps as it takes a lot of reading and testing to get working
i couldnt figure out how to download it or which one to get, most of the links are dead or not working...
are my links dead??
i currently have the latest igo 8.3.4 (aug 09) working on my 4.2 right now (mio168)
bigceb, i dont understand what you mean about the later versions being in the other forum? i have the lastest ones posted here ??!
Sorry i don't mean latter 8.3 versions
i was talking about 8.0 R1 versions which maps are not compatible
with 8.3 versions
for some reason i haven't been able to get your 8.3 ver. working
on the eonon gps box, which is seperate to the head unit (cheap chinnese units)
I dont know weather you found a igo8 that works on your Eonon gps
so ive uploaded a igo 220.127.116.11..R1 version that works on my Eonon
copy igo8 and yfautorun to sd
should be all good, R15 map included
