Installing AutoMapa on this device is a little bit tricky. It’s not enough to just run a graphical installer, it won’t set proper program paths in configuration files. So how to do that manually? How to make AutoMapa work on Mio Moov m410?
It’s not necessary to install custom navi panel (like VisualGPS). You can do that if you like, but there is another method, based on editing a few lines of text in configuration files. I’m going to focus on latter method in this post. Here’s what you got to do:
Step 1) Run AutoMapa installer normally, install the program on your device flash disk.
Step 2) Do not run patching utility to crack AutoMapa, pay for the license! It’s worth it.
Step 3) Configure proper paths in
If you turn on your device after AutoMapa installation, it will run default MapaMap software. We have to explicitly tell the device where to find AutoMapa executable.
Program Files/Navman/appstartupsec.ini from Mio flash disk (using any text editor, standard Windows Notepad will do). It should contain a few lines of text for Windows CE6 startup processes configuration:
AppStartupSec] TurnOffConsole=TRUE [Process1] RelativePath=TRUE ProcessFile=SmartST_CE.exe DefaultCmdLine= BootCmdLine= StartOnBoot=1 MaxRestarts=3 TreatCloseAsError=TRUE Major=TRUE WindowName=SmartST_CE MaxCloseMessages=10 KeysToForward=0x7A,0xC4 KeysToBoot= [Process2] RelativePath=FALSE ProcessFile=Program Files\Screen Saver\VideoShow.exe DefaultCmdLine= BootCmdLine= StartOnBoot=0 MaxRestarts=0 TreatCloseAsError=FALSE Major=FALSE WindowName=VideoShow MaxCloseMessages=10 KeysToForward=0x7A,0xC4 KeysToBoot=
Now change the highlighted line:
ProcesFile=<path to executable>
In my case it was:
ProcessFile=AutoMapa EU/AutoMapa EU.exe
but for you it might be different, depeneding on AutoMapa version and selected installation options.
If you want to use custom Navi panel (like VisualGPS, this line should contain your panel’s executable path instead).
Step 4) Configure
Great, now when you turn on the device, AutoMapa starts automatically. But when you turn off Mio Moov, you’ll find out that te ‚power’ button stopped working. How to fix that? By running custom process
PowerButton.exe (in addition to navigation software). This little utility would handle system event for pushing the power button and and trigger Windows CE shutdown.
Download PowerButton.zip, unzip it, and place both
PowerButton.ini in any directory on the device (you can place them on root or anywhere you feel like).
Now we have the utility, but we still got to tell the system, that it needs to run it.
appstartupsec.ini once again and add following lines at the end of file:
[Process3] RelativePath=FALSE ProcessFile=Program Files/PowerButton.exe DefaultCmdLine= BootCmdLine= StartOnBoot=1 MaxRestarts=0 TreatCloseAsError=FALSE Major=FALSE WindowName=VideoShow MaxCloseMessages=10 KeysToForward=0x7A,0xC4 KeysToBoot=
Change the highlighted line:
to correct path to your PowerButton files.
step 5) Drive safely!
That’s it! Everything should work now :)
