Unlocking the Mio C230 – Version 3.2 with Route & Settings Management

[UPDATE]  Version 3.4  Released Jan. 4, 2008

capscr0007.jpg

 On 11/16/2007, Amida168 released version R2 of his Mio C230 Unlock script which I used as a base for my MioC230-NXT-R2 .   On top of my changes which include an Unlock menu that allow you to proceed to an unaltered MioMap 3.3, I’ve also incorporated a Route Management menu which is the bulk of the change between R2 and MioC230-NXT-R3 as well as Amida’s (2) new TCPMP plugins that allow you to view podcasts and a few other minor improvements.

MioC230-NXT-R3.2 also incorporates an updated AYGSHELL.DLL,  another registry tweak to remove the Taskbar “Always on Top” setting, and menus for updating and editing the SYS.TXT settings file for MioMap  –  in particular making the changes necessary for the Route Management menus to function properly.   Thanks to robb1 (his inclination was correct), I’ve resolved the routepath issue that Ver3.1 had  – figuring out how to get IniWrite to feed the path to SYS.TXT with the proper double quotes required many trials!

Now that we’ve unlocked the C230, we can start enhancing the capabilities of the MioMap software and I’ve done so with my menus to give you the ability to save multiple (custom) routes and change settings for MioMap options that are hidden in the MioC230, all without touching the official “skin” and with the only penalty being one additional click if you simply want MioMap.   The older Mio units have a variety of alternate “skins” (what the various screens look like – colors, buttons, options, etc.) to choose from but very little has been published yet for the MioMap 3.3 software in the 320 X 240 QVGA format that is used in the Mio C230.

I happened to catch this posting by tweakradje where he developed a menu to manage multiple routes from within iGo and thought this would make a nice front-end in my next build.  Although I haven’t yet played with the skins, because we are able to exit MioMap using the BananaPC option, essentially I’ve been able to adapt and customize this same strategy. 

capscr0025.jpg

Perhaps we’ll be able to use his strategy for starting an external application from within iGo (MioMap to us C230 owners) in the near future as a built-in “exit” button, but for now I’m happy to be gaining the other advantages gained in adapting his strategy.

Because you are unable to save multiple routes and because the default route.dat file is currently saved in \My Documents\MioMap folder (which is cleared out during a hard reset), just his tweak alone is great! >>> add routepath = “<a more appropriate folder in My Flash Disk or Storage Card>” to the [interface] section of SYS.TXT in \My Flash Disk\MioMap\MioMap2. 

Normally you don’t need to save a route on your Mio, since you can just create a POI for the destination and regenerate the route dynamically when you want to go there.   If you want to see where you actually drove along the way, you can record a track log.   However, there could be times when you have created a more complex route with multiple waypoints, and you want to save it.   This could be because:

  • you’ve imported the route as a set of waypoints from an online route planning site, and you don’t want to lose the effort of setting it up on the Mio
  • vacation pre-planning – you’ve set up a complex route for a vacation trip that doesn’t start from “home” and you want to load it into memory once you’ve arrived at the start point
  • you want to share your route with another Mio user. 

NOTE [added 12/25/2007]:  When planning routes that start from a location different from your present location (Vacation pre-planning), the Off-Route Recalculation option has a habit of interfering.  You have a couple of options here: 

  • The first leg of your trip can be from your present location to the intended starting point.  Just keep setting your route up and when you’re finished, remove the first Waypoint (using the second button on the bottom of the Edit Route screen) which deletes that first segment of the Route.   It seems that once you’re in the Edit Route screens /Fit to screen/ etc., that the GPS doesn’t recalculate from your present position.  It’s when you are in Map or Cockpit where that happens.  With the Route Management Menu, you just exit and Save your Route for future viewing or navigating. 
  • Although I haven’t tried it, the bottom selection on the General Settings page is Off-Route Recalculation. Switch this from Automatic to Disabled.  This doesn’t actually turn off the GPS receiver, but it should keep the C230 from messing up your Route planning.  Just don’t forget to turn it back on when your done with your Route planning.

Unlock Version NXT-R3.2

[BEFORE YOU FOLLOW THE PROCEDURES TO MODIFY YOUR MIO C230, KNOW THAT YOU MIGHT RENDER YOUR C230 UNUSABLE AND YOU MIGHT VOID YOUR WARRANTY.  YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK.]

Installation procedure

  1. Turn on C230 and connect it to the computer using a 5-pin Mini-B USB 2.0 cable (not included in the package).
  2. C230 will show up as a flash drive in My Computer as Mio Device. Mine is assigned as F drive. I’ll use F drive in the following steps. Substitute it with the actual drive letter of your system.  If you have a SD card in the slot, it shows up as well – in my case as G drive.
  3. Rename the folder F:\MioMap\MioMap to F:\MioMap\MioMap2.
  4. In order not to get the message “destination full”, you’ll need to free up some space on your flash disk by moving atleast 12MB of map files to your SD card by creating a MioMap folder and within that folder a maps folder so that the path appears as G:\MioMap\maps.   Choose a combination of map file(s) you’re not accessing every day (in case your SD card isn’t always inserted) from F:\MioMap\MioMap2\maps and move them to the maps folder on your SD card.  MioMap will see them after a hard reset as if nothing happened.  Or you could delete them (or copy to your PC) if you choose not to use a SD card at this time, since it’s easy to explore your MioMap DVD and copy them back to the original folder or a SD card later, if needed. 
  5. Download MioC230_NXT_R3_2.zip from this site
  6. Extract the files from your download and find the two folders MioMap and  Script 
  7. Copy MioMap to F:\MioMap\ and copy Script to F:\ as in the screenshot. 
     miofiles1.jpg
  8. Disconnect Mio C230 and do a hard reset by sliding the switch on the rear of your C230 to OFF and back to ON again.
  9. After calibrating the touch screen, you will be presented with two menu options (and Cancel):

capscr0012.jpg

  • Unlocked C230 Desktop which automatically runs AUTOPATCHER, does a soft reset and then presents you with the C230 psuedo desktop pictured at the top.  When choosing MioMap from the desktop, you will be able to manage routes, change settings and you will be able to return to the desktop using Amida’s BananaPC option. 
  • GPS Only (MioMap 3.3) which takes you right into MioMap directly (as your unit does automatically prior to unlocking) with no other processes running in the background, including BananaPC.   If you wish to exit MioMap started with this selection, you will need to do a hard reset.
  •  Cancel, rather than choosing one of the first two actual options.   This will take you into File Manager as Amida’s R1 script does, giving you the flexibility to explore further prior to running any scripts.

Note 1: If you hard reset your unit, you will be presented with the step 9 options once again.

Note 2: If you wish to undo the enhancements and return the Mio C230 back to factory condition:

  1. Turn on C230 and connect it to the computer using a USB cable.
  2. Rename the folder F:\MioMap\MioMap to F:\MioMap\MioMap3 (or delete) and rename the folder F:\MioMap\MioMap2 to F:\MioMap\MioMap
  3. Copy back any map files you may have deleted or moved to your SD card 
  4. Disconnect the cable and hard reset C230 using the switch on the back of the unit.

Note 3: Remember, every time you disconnect the USB cable linked to your PC, you will need to do atleast a soft reset, although in most cases you really should do a hard reset.  After each hard reset, simply choose the default menu option that reruns the Autopatcher program to unlock your unit.  The time and date will also need to be reset, unless you are going right into MioMap with autosync enabled.   This is why you might consider using a SD card in conjunction with a USB card reader for adding programs and storing media files once you’re happy with your unlocked Mio setup.

Updating your unlocked C230

Before you begin using your unlocked unit after installing this package, you need to update the SYS.TXT file.  Rather than manually editing the file which might feel too much like hacking for some, I’ve automated the procedure, which also has the advantage of being able to change flyover and show One-way street settings as often as you wish via easy menu selections and all with no changes to the factory skins.

capscr0007.jpg 

^ click on the MioMap icon (the GPS unit in the upper left)

capscr0026.jpg  

^ double click this selection or select and hit OK 

 capscr0027.jpg 

^ click YES to add routepath and autosave parameters so that saved route(s) won’t be wiped-out by hard resets.
Well, the mandatory stuff is done…

capscr0028.jpg 

^ your choice.  Mio’s default is YES (demo mode).

capscr0029.jpg 

^ the script reads your current SLOWSIM value (slow simulation – which is the inverse of fast flyover) entry in the file and allows you to keep the value (YES) or change it (NO).   For fast flyover, slowsim=1 is changed to slowsim=0.  

iGo calls the two modes: Lifelike simulation mode (this demp mode with loop turned on) which runs real-time (at speed-limit rate) and includes voice instructions –  mainly used by retail stores with looping turned ON as Demo mode, and for the user to become familiar with it’s routing functioning.   Fast-flyover mode runs 10 times faster (10X the speed-limit rate) and voice instructions are not played, but it is much more useful for reviewing a planned route..

capscr0030.jpg 

^ the script reads your current entry in the file and allows you to keep the value (YES) or change it (NO).

There that is all done, even if you do a hard reset.

capscr0033.jpg

^ click on “Load a Saved Route…” and select this sample file and it should copy itself as route.dat and open up in MioMap.  To visualize this Route, select Cockpit > Menu > Routes icon (third in bottom row) > Info > Fit to screen.  When you edit or delete route from within MioMap, you are impacting route.dat file, not the saved file you selected from the menu, so if you want to save changes you’ve made, you’ll have to do so after you exit MioMap and return to the Route Management menu.

Using your unlocked C230

You’ll note that the MioMap icon and the Media Player are larger than the rest.  My reasoning for this is that they will probably be your favorites and you are likely to access these without a stylus.   The other icons…

  • MioTool – hitting the small “ab” box in the top left corner with your stylus will reveal a virtual keyboard for entering data.  To turn the keyboard off again, just hit the icon again.  Another method of engaging the keyboard is hitting the keyboard icon on the taskbar (2nd from the right).
  • MioMap 3.3 – Starts my new menu with options to either proceed into the MioMap program, Save / Delete / Rename / Load routes, View / Update MioMap settings in SYS.TXT, or view a brief BananaPC Help screen.

    capscr0025.jpg

    When you start MioMap via this menu, the script first closes MioTool and starts BananaPC, which has three small icon squares that each act differently depending on whether they are tapped or held down.  Remember about where they appear while MioMap loads up as they hide themselves after a few seconds.  The first icon is an X, which if tapped will close MioMap and soft reset.  If held down it will present you with several options, including switching to other programs running in the background.  The second icon puts your currently program in full-screen mode, which can come in handy if the taskbar is acting up.  The third icon, if tapped toggles the mute function and if held down – presents you with a volume control panel.   Amida’s primary purpose for this program was to serve as an exit door back to the desktop to avoid using the hard reset option. 

    Exit and Cancel both take you back to the desktop.  You can either select your option and hit OK, or simply double-click your option.

  • TCPMP Media Player – described earlier in this blog.  Ok, you want to play a music playlist or an audiobook while using the navigation functions of your GPS?  Yes, it works!
  1. Bring up the taskbar in your desktop (discussed earlier) either hidden or exposed
  2. Click Media Player icon and start up your music (or you can start it later if you wish)
  3. Tap the far right area of the taskbar and select Desktop
  4. Click on MioMap icon and observe the location of the BananaPC icons
  5. By tapping and holding down the X icon, you’ll be able to select TCPMP Media Player (or any other running app) and bounce back and forth.

capscr0014.jpg

The audio settings for MioMap are independent of your other programs, so if you hit the mute icon in MioMap so that you don’t get 15 reminders that you are approaching your exit, the music plays on!

Shortcuts 2nd row-from-bottom across:

  • Suspend – suspends the C230 in sleep mode, using some power though – so don’t use this in place of the actual orange power button.
  • Windows Explorer – my primary reason for using this shortcut is to fix file icon associations in File Manager and to resolve the Show Toolbar performance.  It should be noted that the first time you select Windows Explorer, you are likely to get the Mio orange screen with a minimized taskbar at the bottom.  You just need to use your stylus in the right corner of the hidden taskbar (the narrow gray stripe at the bottom edge) and choose Desktop (don’t click on MainShell).  At this point, the taskbar and Windows Explorer will behave better, and the icon associations in File Explorer will work, and other programs that seem to be missing menus, like exit, folder selection, etc. will display their own taskbar (see the Freecell screenshot) as long as the desktop taskbar wasn’t toggled off.
  • Pocket Notepad – viewing txt files and for creating quick txt files with the virtual keyboard.  Comes in handy for quick editing ini, mscr and other text files.
  • Volume Control – graphic volume control display
  • Pocket-G Freecell – so you can have a little fun.  Stylus recommended though (not a pen).

    capscr0016.jpg

  • An empty spot for a shortcut of your own (plus room for another 8 shortcuts above this row)
  • GQ Photo Viewer – GQ is easier to use for viewing multiple photos than media player, and it has a zoom function
  • Restart – soft reset button

Shortcuts 1st row-from-bottom across:.

  • DPMS – puts your screen to sleep while everything else continues to run.  This could save battery consumption while recording GPS track logs or playing an audio book, etc.
  • Taskbar toggle – toggles the taskbar on and off in whatever state it is in (hidden or revealed)
  • FileManCE2 – Two-pane File Manager application alternative to Windows Explorer
  • Move Any Window – the mouse icon, is used when you anticipate needing to move windows around (those that drag properly can just be slid over with your finger) or gaining access to the right mouse function by opening this program window beforehand
  • MioUtility – quick access to adjust Backlight, Volume, Screen calibrate, Power, Date/Time and Language.  This is the program that older units like the Mio C220 used to exit from MioMap into, but MioMap 3.3 has been written such that these choices are all available from within the program now and in fact the Volume Control appears to be non-functional.   You’ll find that setting the date and time is much easier by clicking on the clock on the toolbar, unless you like the 24-hour format.

    capscr0021.jpg

  • WR-Tooks ResInfo – Quick access to status info on battery, program memory, storage memory, Flash Disk useage, Storage Card useage, tasks and processes currently running, system information and settings.  Most of this information is also available from Control Panel as well.

    capscr0019.jpg

  • My Calculator – a scientific calculator that is large enough to use without a stylus
  • CapScrUtil – a screen capture utility. Remember to store the .bmp images to either Storage Card or My Flash Disk for easy access to the screenshots.  (This utility was used to create all of the images in this blog page)

Taskbar 

capscr0023.jpg

 

The registry tweaks introduced with version 3.1 should help tame the taskbar performance.  The default setting for “Always on Top” has been deactivated.   Try to remember to toggle the taskbar OFF prior to using MioMap though.   Want the day and date?  Press and hold the clock on the screen.  Want to minimize the taskbar?  Start/Settings/Taskbar Properties/OK.

ENJOY!!

    Is it just me or when i click on the windows explorer icon, my mio just crash. Also when i am in the menu, pressing cancel will hang my unit.

  4. c230 said

    Thanks for trying the new version 3 wildpig. Your unit isn’t crashing when you fire up Windows Explorer the first time, you just need to use your stylus in the right corner of the hidden taskbar (the narrow gray stripe at the bottom edge) and choose Desktop. At this point, the taskbar and Windows Explorer will behave better, and the icon associations in File Explorer will work, and other programs that seem to be missing menus, like exit, folder selection, etc. will display their own taskbar (see the Freecell screenshot) as long as the desktop taskbar wasn’t toggled off. [I thought this was mentioned in the blog, I’ll add mention of this behavior that is due to Mio stripping parts of WinCE out, which wasn’t known for proper taskbar behavior anyways]

    As to hitting cancel in the MioMap menu, cancel is the exact same thing as choosing Exit, and they both simply reactivate MioTool (the virtual keyboard) and exit out, so that I don’t understand.

    ok will try again later. Thanks

    I am surrounded by one way streets near work and tonight I turned on my GPS and couldn’t figure out what the blue triangles were, finally remembered the show_oneway=1 option. That works nice.

    I found some additional voices for the 220 and they work for the 230 except for street names. I looked at the difference between the files and will experiment with getting the additional voices to speak street names.

    Took me forever to find the Mio PoI loader. For anyone else that is looking for it:
    http://www.mio-tech.be/en/mio-club/poi-loader.php
    I found out if you place your different categories into separate folders they will show up as separate poi selections in your “My POI” section of your Mio230..

  8. niloc22 said

    Hi,

    I installed as above, for some reason my route is being saved to My Documents/MioMap/ instead of My Flash Disk/MioMap/MioMap/routes…I’ve double checked my sys.txt, and it is as you put above. Any ideas where i’m going wrong? Thanks!

  9. Mike said

    Perhaps it should be single slashes and not double slashes?

    I have not tried it yet, but should it also be
    Drive letter:\MioMap\MioMap\routes\
    and make sure there is a routes folder in MioMap\MioMap

    (I use linux so I always check case but I don’t think it matters under Windows)

  10. c230 said

    The routes folder should already be there , since you copy the entire MioMap folder contents from the download that includes an empty routes folder. The routepath (one word; not route path) statement has to be typed exactly as you see it with double backslashes (\\ not / or //) and the quotes. Only the red portion though. And in the [interface} section; not in [debug],etc. And with a text editor, like Notepad, not Microsoft Word. In fact, with Notepad, try copying this

    routepath=”\\My Flash Disk\\MioMap\\Miomap\\routes\\”

    and paste it right in to see if that helps.

    I can see why the C310 & 520 automatic scripts evolved where the package is downloaded to a SD disk, you insert it into the Mio, and let the script self-installs.

    I maintain that it should work, and I tried to think of everything to make it reliable, even after hard resets. Anyone else have experience with version R3?

    I don’t want to be pushed off of the proverbial soapbox, so I won’t get on one proclaiming “follow the directions”…

  11. robb1 said

    Can I just add the Mio Map route management WITHOUT unlocking my c230(usa-miomap v3.3)? I’ve been following this thread and for me, I have no need to unlock my c230 but having route management would be very worthwhile. I went to the url in this thread regarding adding route management by tweakradje. I downloaded the MortScript_Routes.zip, Andysk8m.zip and SplitScreen320x240v3m.zip. Its confusing because some paths in these files(andysk8m) are G:\dls\unzip\igo_se1\320_240\ui and my c230 has no igo_se1 directory. I think I read at gpspassion that the author of this unlocking release 3 did it without using the andysk8m. Is there an easy way to do this? What files and editing would be needed? HELP!robb

  12. c230 said

    No, and that author (ameridan) was me. I rewrote the menu script to work without the andysk8m skin, and with my Unlock only (which is why the paths are different). As I stated in my blog, I haven’t tried any skins yet, so if you want to give it a go, you should probably use his whole package, rather than mix it with my work. I haven’t even had success getting the Exit button unhidden in the present skin. These skin doctors are good and I haven’t learned that art yet. Good luck!

  13. robb1 said

    Thanks for your input c230(ameridan)! I may attempt installing that package this weekend. Sure would like the ability to save/restore routes.

  14. Johnny said

    Anybody tried installing TomTom Navigator 6 on the C230? it would be a great addition to the Mio C230.. cheers

  15. robb1 said

    Gonna try your hack this weekend. I have a question(and I am new to all of this so please understand). If you’re not using a SD card and in step 3(Rename the folder F:\MioMap\MioMap to F:\MioMap\MioMap2.), then in step 8(Copy MioMap to F:\MioMap\ and copy Script to F:\) how will the gps find the maps since they’d now be in the MioMap2 directory? Does the code in the unlock point to the maps directory in MioMap2? Or does the maps folder have to be moved into the unlocked F:\MioMap\MioMap\(Maps\moved here from MioMap2)

  16. c230 said

    Wow, that was confusing.
    Just think of it this way. The C230 is always going to fire up \My Flash Disk\MioMap\MioMap\miomap.exe PERIOD.

    All we are doing by moving the folder that contains the original miomap.exe to MioMap2 instead, is forcing the Unlock which is now named \My Flash Disk\MioMap\MioMap\miomap.exe to run instead.

    MioMap paths are all relative to the folder that the main program starts in, so no, don’t change anything in the miomap2 folder.

    If you don’t have a SD card, then you may have to erase a map file or two to make room in the internal memory card, but still ALL the instructions remain the same.

    Just to make yourself more comfortable, you could copy the entire flash drive over to your PC before renaming the miomap folder, so that it will be real easy to restore if you need to, but please keep in mind, the unlock does not point to any maps, it points to the new location of the miomap program which then interfaces with the maps on its own.

    Hope this helps 🙂

    Got it C230 and THANKS very much Sir!

  18. […] 2007 at 12:21 pm · Filed under mio c230 Today I’ve updated the Version 3 package to version 3.1 which incorporates the updated AYGSHELL.DLL and menus for updating and editing the SYS.TXT […]

  19. robb1 said

    Ok I installed the Release v3.1. Like Niloc22 my route is being saved to My Documents\miomap I checked the sys.txt and the line:
    routepath=”\\My Flash Disk\\MioMap\\Miomap\\routes\\”
    I even copied this line from this website and re-entered it in sys.txt

    [debug] autosave=1 is also in my sys.txt.

    Did you get it saving correctly Niloc22?

    Another thing, is there anyway to see ALL the directories and files on the GPS on your COMPUTER via USB cable as you can see them all in the unlocked FileManCE2 explorer? That is, My Documents, Program Files, WIndows etc folders?

  20. c230 said

    robb1

    do me a favor and see if the routes folder exists. maybe it’s got to be manually copied – I assumed it would copy over since it’s part of the miomap folder in the download.

  21. robb1 said

    Yes, I just checked and the folder does exist(My Flash Disk\MioMap\MioMap\Routes)

  22. c230 said

    well that is why I’m glad I didn’t get on that soapbox. My apologies to Niloc22, it seems you are both correct. Everything has been working well for me, but I deleted everything in \MioMap and \scripts and started over and sure enough routes.dat keeps going to \My Documents\MioMap now ??? So close!!

    I’ll work on it some more. Like I said, it was solid for me these past few days. Somehow tgetfile.dll snuck back in there too.

  23. robb1 said

    C230…I think I found the problem. When your release v3.1 writes to the SYS.TXT file to ADD ROUTE MANAGEMENT it writes:
    routepath=”\\My Flash Disk\\MioMap\\Miomap\\routes\\”
    BUT IT SHOULD WRITE:
    routepath=”\\My Flash Disk\\MioMap\\Miomap\\routes\\”

    See the difference? Look closely. Its the quote marks! Instead of writing ASCII Code 22 Hex double quotes its writing ASCII Code Hex 201D right double quotation mark. This is why the path is not working.

    If you edit the sys.txt file and change the Hex 201D right double quotation mark to Double Quote marks(from your keyboard) it then works! In other words, in the sys.txt fine the line and replace the quote marks using the quote key on your keyboard.

    If you are getting this path from the ROUTES.MSCR(which I suspect) then if you look at the code you will see a line:

    IniWrite (SYSFILE, “interface”, “routepath”, “”\\My Flash Disk\\MioMap\\Miomap\\routes\\””

    Notice how the first set of quotes “”\\My Flash begin with a regular double while the second one is the right double quotation. Its at the end of this line of code too. So if this is where you are picking up the path for the sys.txt file to add route management thats why its not working. If you notice in release v3 this was not a problem because your instructions say to type in routepath=”\\My Flash Disk\\MioMap\\Miomap\\routes\\” There was no error in v3 because of this. I tried to change those offending quote marks in the Routes.mscr but it didn’t run, caused errors, so in the routes.mscr they’re OK.

    Now also on your blog here in your reply to Niloc22 who was having this problem too you wrote: In fact, with Notepad, try copying this routepath=”\\My Flash Disk\\MioMap\\Miomap\\routes\\”
    Well, if anyone copied that as stated it TOO is using the incorrect right double quotation marks.

    It took me several hours of trying to figure what the problem was. Check it out on your end, just edit your sys.txt and change the quotes in that line. Also find a different way to incorporate it in your unlock so its not giving the incorrect right double quotation marks. Are you using some kind of foreign font/character set?

  24. robb1 said

    Yes, it WAS working well for you C230 because you were using release 3 and entered the routepath=”\\My Flash Disk\\MioMap\\Miomap\\routes\\” manually in your sys.txt file. Then you said you deleted everything and started over then BOOM, you got struck with it in release 3.1. Should be easy enough for you to fix though.

    Thanks for everything. I hope I didn’t confuse you too much again. I’m not very good at explaining things. We’ll be looking for release v3.2. Thanks for your work with this project!

  25. robb1 said

    More Weirdness….it seems this website somehow is changing the ” double quote to a right double quote in the messages here. Ahhh no wonder when someone copies it from this website its incorrect too! Whats up wit dat??

  26. c230 said

    robb1,

    thanks for your encouragement. Your inclination was correct, and Ver3.2 will resolve the routepath issue – figuring out how to get IniWrite to feed the path to SYS.TXT with the proper double quotes required many trials!

    It turns out that it works even better now. I put a sample route from Boston to P-town (Cape Cod) and it was so cool loading that file and see the route come up in MioMap. I will leave the file in the folder as a sample.

  27. robb1 said

    c230, I am glad you have it working now, even better! If it wasn’t for route management I wouldn’t even bother to unlock my c230. Thanks for all your efforts.

    Niloc22…..I’m glad you’re back and read about the saving of the route data. C230 edited his script and it now works fine. Since its been working I made and saved several routes that I will be loading when I need to go to those places. Not always does the gps select a route that I’m pleased with, even editing them in ROUTE don’t sometimes select the route I like so I use the VIA to change the route to my liking then save it. This is my first gps(c230) and I don’t know if others have built in route management but I don’t want to be without it!
