MIO Map v BECKER Traffic Assist 7914

pokud Vam nevyhovuji mapy v teto navigaci jako spouste dalsich lidi, protoze mapove podklady jsou od firmy navteq, ktera zrovna ceskou republiku nema moc zmapovanou, narozdil treba od teleatlasu, jehoz mapy pouziva navigace tomtom..

tak to sem mozna trosku odbocil, takze zpet k beckeru. jdeme upavovat ctete dale…

okay, if you urgent me to write english version, i’ll try it 🙂

this article is as you see about option to change default navigation software in BECKER navigation to MioMap, which is using better maps and generally is more sophisticated.

becker1
tak zaprve si prostudujte tyto 4 clanky na navigovat.sk plus jejich forum, kde se dozvite par dulezitych veci, ze kterych jsem vychazel.

at first you carefully read these 4 articles on navigovat.sk, so as their discussion forums. here i found important advices.

a ted, pokud jste pozorne cetli, uz zajiste vite, ze upravy jsou pouze pro model 7934 a na nasem modelu 7914 nefunguji, pokud neprehrajeme firmware v 7914 firmwarem z 7934. nicmene nezoufame, jde to i bez toho (protoze FW z 7934 stejne nikdo k dispozici nema)

if you read (or at least see) this, you know that mods are related with model 7934, and no with our 7914. probably is solution in flash 7914 with 7934 firmware, but i don’t know where and how to do this. so i’ve tried it myself.

jdeme na to… let’s start…

  1. nejprve stahovacka, takze:
    at first we need (download) some things:

    • budeme potrebovat mit nainstlovany ActiveSync
    • budeme potrebovat mit nainstalovany TotalCommander (ver. 5.5 nebo vyssi)
    • do TotalCommanderu budeme potrebovat plugin wincefs.zip (otevrete ten zip v TotalCMD, sam nabidne nainstalovani)
    • GAPI ze stranek Microsoftu (z archivu pouzijeme soubory ze slozky ARM)
    • program CABinstl (pro manualni instalaci cab archivu kam chceme) nejsem si jist nutnosti tohoto kroku
    • GAPI_for_HPCs_v310.cab (kterej budeme instalovat)
    • autodetectgps 1.0 (jen tak pro jistotku pak)
    • PMB-V100.zip z navodu na navigovat.sk
    • a ted to nejdulezitejsi „MioMap 3.2 install for navman“
    • par drobnosti, ktery najdete treba na instalacnim CD iGO2006
    • installed ActiveSync
    • installed TotalCommander 5.5 or higher
    • wincefs plugin for TotalCommander
    • GAPI for ARM from microsoft site
    • program CABinstl for manual CAB archive installation in our BECKER (i’m not sure that this step is neccesary, but i do it this way and it works and i didn’t try it without it)
    • GAPI_for_HPCs_v310.cab (which we’ll install with CABinstl
    • autodetectgps 1.0 (just for case)
    • PMB-V100.zip from article on navigovat.sk
    • and most important thing „MioMap 3.2 install for navman“
    • few things from install CD iGO 2006
  2. to bychom meli snad vse co bude treba, vse se vali na netu, takze to nebudu nikam uploadovat. jedeme dal..
    so we have perhaps all things we need. all is on the internet so UTFG, STFW an so 🙂 let’s continue..

    • nainstalujeme ActiveSync – po pripojeni zapnutyho beckera USB kabelem by mel naskocit ten jejich Connection Manager ci co a pruvodce nejakym partnerstvim. nic z toho nepotrbujeme, jde nam jen o to, aby v tray zezelenala ikonka AC
    • spustime total commander, a dojedeme do adresare kde mame plugin wincefs.zip. poklikame na nej a on se sam nainstaluje
    • ted, kdyz dame v TC sitova pripojeni – WinCE device, meli bychom se dostat do BECKERa daleko vic nez by nas pustil obyc pruzkumnik
    • provedeme si komplet zalohu vsech souboru (minimalne adresare My Flash Disk), uz jen proto, ze jeden soubor budeme zahy potrebovat 😉
    • if we have installed ActiveSync – after we connect BECKER via USB cable, it starts some Connection Manager and some partnership guide, we don’t need this, press storno and check if icon in systray is green.
    • start TotalCommander and go to directory where is wincefs plugin (wincefs.zip), press enter and plugin is should be installed.
    • now, go to networks in TotalCommandet and you should see WinCE device. go there! now you can do more things in BECKER than through Windows Explorer by standard way.
    • now backup your BECKER, minimally „My Flash Disk“ directory, in few moment we need one file 🙂

  1. tuningujeme…
    let’s go tunning…

    • ze souboru PMB-V100.zip si hodime do slozky My Flash Disk soubor cecmd.exe (staci jen samotnej tendle) a prejmenjeme ho na EPictureViewer (nebo jak ze se jmenuje ten co tam uz je – de nam proste o to, aby se nam spustil totalcommander, kdyz klikneme na OBRAZKY v menu BECKERa (to nakonec zase vratime zpet))
    • do slozky My Flash Disk dale hodime AutoDetectGPS 1.0.exe, GAPI_for_HPCs_v310.cab a cabinstl_en.exe
    • spustime cabinstl, a nainstalujeme GAPI (treba do slozky My Flash Disk/GAPI). v nejakym tom pruvodci prave BECKER 7914 neni, takze tento krok je mozna zbytecnej, ja ho delal a posleze to slo, a nezkousel sem to bez nej.
    • dale si poznamename nazev jedinyho exe souboru ve slozce MNAV
    • smazeme obsah slozky MNAV a nakopirujeme do ni obsah slozky MioMap z balicku „MioMap 3.2 install for navman“, a soubor MIOMAP.EXE prejmenujeme tak, jak se jmenoval ten exac predtim
    • ted ten nejdulezitejsi krok!
      MUSIME do slozky MNAV zkopirovat soubor gpstmc.dll (a nahradit jim ten co tu je nyni), ktery tu byl puvodne (ano mame ho v zaloze) a
      zkopirovat sem soubory gx.dll a gx.lib ze slozky AARM z balicku GAPI se stranek MicroSoftu
      jinak to ale vubec nepojede
    • put file cecmd.exe fron PMB-V100.zip in to folder My Flash Disk and rename it to EPictureViewer.exe (original EPictureViewer.exe rename for example to EPictureViewer.exe.bak). now when we tap on PICTURES in BECKER menu it runs something like total commander in BECKER.
    • in folder My Flash Disk also copy AutoDetectGPS 1.0.exe, GAPI_for_HPCs_v310.cab a cabinstl_en.exe
    • via CECommander run cabinstl.exe and install GAPI in My Flash Disk/GAPI (because BECKER 7914 is not in after-install guide i don’t know if this necessary as i wrote up)
    • note the name of only exe file in My Flash Disk/MNAV
    • delete all files in My Flash Disk/MNAV and copy there all files from „MioMap 3.2 install for navman“ and rename file miomap.exe to noted name of previous only-exe-file.
    • most important step! from our backup of „My Flash Disk“/MNAV copy gpstmc.dll in MNAV folder and replace original (without this step navigation program will work, but GPS not) and
      copy files gx.dll and gx.lib from ARM-GAPI package also in MNAV. (without these two it won’t work!)
Becker - Main menu

Main menu

  1. ted sme ve fazi, kdy by se uz melo spustit MIO pri tapnuti na tlacitko NAVIGACE na obrazovce BECKERa. spusti se? pokud jo, mame temer vyhrano 🙂
    and now, we’re in stage when MIO should work after tap on NAVIGATION field on main display.
MioMap starting

We are really close now

  1. pokracujeme…
    continue…

    • zase pomoci total commanderu v BECKERovi spustime proramek autodetectGPS, a zjistime kde, ze ta GPSka vezi (takhle je to jednoduchy, ale dalo mi to nejvic prace 🙂 ). me nasel GPSku na portu 1 a rychlosti 9600, pochybuju, ze by to u Vas bylo jinak.
    • vlezeme do slozky MNAV, a otevreme si k editaci soubor sys.txt (musime v PC, pac BECKER nema klavesnici 😀 ) doplnime/upravime tyto hodnoty
    • again via CECommander run autodetectGPS and find where is GPS located. in my case it’s on COM1 and 9600baud; i belive that in your case it is same.
    • via PC in MNAV folder open file sys.txt and change these values.
    • [gps]
      protocol=„NMEA“
      com_port=1
      com_port_speed=9600
    • ted uz muzeme pomalu zahlazovat stopy, a to tak, ze smazeme vse ze slozky scheme, do slozky voice si nahrajeme cesky hlasy, do slozky lang cestinu a do slozky maps mapy z instalacniho DVD iGO2006
    • nakonec smazeme nas total commander v BECKERovi a hodime misto nej puvodni prohlizec obrazku
    • now we can cover the tracks, delete all files from folder MNAV/scheme, in folder MNAV/voice we put voices in our language, in folder MNAV/lang our language and in folder MNAV/maps our maps (from iGO)
    • at the end we delete CEComannder a la EPictureViewer.exe and rename old EPictureViewer.exe.bak
  2. takto bychom meli mit hotovo. v BECKERovi je tak 40?MB mista na mapy.. v pohode se mi tam vesly mapy cesky republiky, slovenska, chorvatska, basemap a polsko, to si myslim, ze staci..
    in this step we install maps, in my BECKER was about 40MB free space for maps, and i put there maps of Czech republic, basemap, slovakia.. from iGO
    i think that it’s possible to have maps on Card, maybe in folder „Map“ or „Maps“ in root of card, try it 😉
MioMap

All is worging now – MioMap 3.3

na SD karte muzeme mit nyni hudbu v MP3 na cesty, nebo muzeme prohlizet fotky z fotaku..
on SD now we should have for example MP3’s..

jediny co by jeste chtelo vyresit, aby byly mapy na karte. sou dve moznosti bud presvedcit Mio, ze ma mapy hledat na karte (to de, jenze tento zaznam je ulozen v registrech a v tech zmena vydrzi do vypnuti/restartu BECKERa. jediny adresar, ktery se uchova je prave a jen My Flash Disk, takze idealne zmenit tu cestu nejak v souboru sys.txt, ale na to jsem zatim neprisel),

druha moznost je mit na karte Mio (i s mapama), a v BECKERovi mit jen zastupce s priponou exe a prislusnym nazvem, ktery by spustil Mio z karty, problem je ze se mi takoveho zastupce nepodarilo vytvorit (jedina moznos by byla na to napsat nejaky trivialni programek a zkompilovat ho pro tu obstarozni verzi windows (Windows CE .NET 4.20), ktera tu je k dispozici. nasel jsem sice programy typu bat2exe, ktere zkompilovaly bat soubor do exe.. jenze fungovaly jen pod WinXP na PC, nikoli v navigaci) to uz necham ale na Vas 🙂

TUTO ÚPRAVU DĚLÁTE NA VLASTNÍ NEBEZPEČÍ! POKUD SI UMRTVÍTE NAVIGACI, JÁ VÁM RADIT NEBUDU. TUTO NAVIGACI NEVLASTNÍM, TUDÍŽ NEMÁM ČESKÝ NÁVOD, NEVÍM KDE JE RESET, ANI CO DĚLAT POKUD NEJDE ZAPNOUT!

THIS TWEAK YOU DO ON YOUR OWN RISK! IF YOU KILL YOUR NAVIGATION, DON’T WRITE ME FOR HELP. I’M NOT OWNER OF THIS NAVIGATION, SO I DON’T KNOW WHERE IS RESET POINT, WHAT TO DO IF IT WON’T TURN ON AND SO!


EDIT:
Peter van der Vlies: Mikrom, To install all the maps on the SD card you need to change the registry setting of the maps location. The are several tools to use, to edit the registry but this is the key.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\MioMap]
"MapDir"="\sdmmc disk\MioMap\maps"

Copy the text between the —- characters en save them in notepad. Store the notepad file as mio.reg on the traffic assist and open the file on the traffic assist with the explorer. Now you can store maps on the SD card.
Regards Peter.

mikrom: i know about this, but i think when i am turn of and on becker, all things will be restored to default values exept things in folder My Flash Disk. so i am afraid thet this solution probably work until first restart.
about this i wrote in last two paragraphs which are in czech, because i leave them after i was tired with translation 😀
thank you for enjoying.
regards mikrom

Peter van der Vlies: Even after an soft reset of the device, the registry setting are preserved.
Only when a hard reset is done. Then the registry is cleaned.
