I bought a Eonon headunit and was wondering which onroad software would you recommend to run on it? It is featuring Microsoft Windows CE.NET 6.0 so I can in theory install most programms that come for CE.

Thanks for your help

I could be wrong but I think you will find the only off-road software properly developed for WIN CE is Ozi Explorer. I have been running it for years on a Chinese double-DIN head unit with reasonably good success. Used to run it on a hacked Navman before that. To get the best out of it you need to make a few button overlays up with their screen editor and the resolution and contrast of the cheap head units can be a pain.

Sorry - at 5.57am I read on-road as off-road. Most of them come with software - there are a couple of common one; Navig8tor and iGO. Mine runs the latter and it is fairly good. You will find some on ebay for around $50.

Ok I bought the Eonon unit without maps because everyone said they aren't worth it. So if I wanted to install iGo Primo, which seems to be a good programm, I would need to buy it somewhere correct? The igo Primo homepage offers little help in that regard. On Ebay I only found units with it pre installed.

So far I couldnt find a homepage that sells iGo Primo on its own and not just for their units pre installed.

Does anyone have a source where they bought it/ I could buy it? I can only find the iphone app.

Thanks a lot

Ok maybe I am just too stupid :-) Do you just need to buy the "maps" and the programm that runs those maps come with the maps? I always thought you buy a programm and then a map package.

Search via google seems to reveal more hacked iGo Primo offers than any site that actually sells it :-(

If you are talking about software like iGo then you buy the app that includes the map. In some states (e.g. Vic) there are Computer Swap meets where a variety of software can be purchased. You start by looking at these events.

For me its just not clear if the "Map package" like for example
http://www.gpsmapstore.com/igo-2013-gps-map-for-australia
would include the "basic software" thus be a complete independent package. Or would I need to buy a iGo Primo basic software... and then a map package for Australia?

Or would the Windows CE version of iGo Primo be included if I buy the iphone App?

Cheers

I searched a lot around and it seems there is no source within Australia to acquire iGo Primo legally for your Windows CE as aftermarket install.

I can only find torrents that supply the European software that you load the Australian maps into or USA/China dealers that send out preloaded SD cards.
