View Full Version : will sygic work with wince 6 ?

15th January 2011, 10:37
Hi guys, hope you can help,

I have a chinese double din headunit running wince 6, i downloaded sygic mobile maps, windows version, from their own website.
i put all the files on to the sd card and put the card into my device. Everything came up fine and i could select the voices change the date etc, etc. the next stage was to input the product code, so i could access the maps. This is where the problems began.
For some reason, after several attempts, it would not accept the code. so i switched the unit off and then back on again, now all that happens is nothing, when i touch navigation on the screen, nothing happens. i can access setup and select setupwinmobile and that is it.
i emailed sygic, and they said they have reset the code, so i tried again, still no joy. Now they are telling me that it will not run with wince 6. it only runs with windows mobile 6.1 and 6.5. is this correct ? it seemed to be working right up into i tried putting the code in.
it just says on their website, windows mobile, not which versions. The unit runs fine with igo8 and tom tom.

will it work with my unit or should i ask for my money back ?

I am a newbie to in dash sat nav progs !

to blackstars, did you get it running on wince6?. in settings DON'T set it up for winmobile as you havent got it,it's wince6,
then it should be ok.

if you are still holding that software, then please select drive.exe from the drive folder. (Sygic>Drive>Windowsmobile>Drive.exe ) . it will work. Good day

Actually no one from you guys mentioned what version of the software you are trying to start on a WinCE 6 device. The help provided is adequate - dumb question (It is not working!) - dumb answer (try to start it!) ;-)

YES! The software work flawlessly on a WinCE device - 8.16, 8.24, Maemo and Drive "truck" versions 8.30, 8.32. The only things you should do are:
First to give the right paths in ...\Drive\setings.ini text file:


\.. means an upper level directory

The second ting is how you deal with the Maps folder - all the maps there should be in a respective folder with the same name e.g. ..\Maps\alb\alb.pak, ..\Maps\aus\aus.pak and so on.
The third thing is to activate the software with a *.mlm (* - means World, Europe, ...) or file according to the version you have/want which should be in the Maps folder.
More info you can find here in this forum...
