Mio Moov 1*0, 2*0, 3*0, 5*0

Postby rongrenfell » Thu Jul 23, 2009 23:48

Some Mio's produced since the amalgamation with NavMan may display incorrect fonts, refer to the remarks at the end of this posting.

Thanks to Steveukman for providing the list of folder names for various Moov models.

With the merger between Mio and NavMan, there has been a merger of hardware and firmware from the 2 former developers. The following process follows the principles previously outlined for some NavMan models and appears to apply to most Moovs. However, some exceptions have been found. If this doesn't work for you, see the post for the Mio V735 / Moov 500.

With a fresh SD-card in the PC card reader, select File>Sync/Prepare SD Card for Mobile Device.

After the first stage of the SD-card preparation, while the card is in the PC card reader, create a new folder in the root folder of the SD-card.
Copy "autorunce.exe" from the root folder to the new folder and rename it as "auto.exe". The name for the new folder is model and geographic region specific - refer to the table at the end of this post. Several of these folders are already created on the SD Card automatically by PocketFMS. If yours is there, you can ignore this step.

Follow the remaining on-screen instructions to complete the card preparation.

To run PocketFMS, insert the SD-card and reset the device.

If you are unsure about the model number of your device, or your model is not listed below, the folder name may be found in a file named "app_startup.txt" located in the root of the flash drive of the device, which refers to RunSDCardExecutable(SmartST_CE - Run()): CreateProcess(\Storage card\########\auto.exe).

######## is the name of the new folder you need to create on the SD Card. If you still can't find the all-important folder name, be creative - you can probably guess it from the pattern for the listed models.

Advise us of the folder name and we will add it to the next version, so new cards are automatically prepared for your device.

Note: It has been reported that some Moovs will not turn off while PocketFMS is running, or that PocketFMS appears to not fully exit. In both cases a soft reset is required.

Limitations such as this are hardware dependent, and are a consequence of using a device which has been designed for a particular application, which is not PocketFMS. The need to reset may be annoying, but does not inhibit the operation of PocketFMS.

Font problems
Some users have reported unreadable button labels after installing PocketFMS V1.3. The problem is not consistent across models, so we are unable to identify the problem units in advance.

Only apply the following fix if your device is definitely displaying weird characters instead of the normal button labels.

Connect the device to a PC.
Move tahoma.ttf and pocketfmswx.ttf from the root of the SD-Card to the devices "program files/common files/fonts" folder.
Check that the files are no longer on the SD-Card.
Disconnect the device from the PC and reset.
PocketFMS should now operate normally.
