Also still using the original app as I hated the new one at first sight the minute it was launched and never looked at it again since.

Having used Waze on and off for years, it's never been a usable product (for me). I find it can't do a simple A to B without some craziness.

I have a standard route I test it on - my house to the ...

It's looking like the last version of the software this works with is 1.05. If you've recently got your Sony or updated it beyond 1.05, it won't work.

You'll either have to put POI Warner on or wai ...

I don't think you can I'm afraid, although I'm prepared to be corrected.

I think your choice is either to use POI-Warner, which may well work a lot more easily (but you have to pay a little for it) ...

If it's just one trip, it might be worth looking at Google Maps. This now runs on your mobile phone and provides walking directions between points.

Obviously there are data charges, but it's not t ...

Mailed you, but for the benefit of any others:

I had two C510D units fail. Tried the hardware reset under the removable bezel and tried plugging the USB in - no joy. Both went back to Halfords, who ...

Ach, started a new thread when I should have posted here.

Did this hack today, worked really well, so well done!

I downgraded to firmware 5.40 (they're up to 5.6 already) first, and that went ok ...

Just to report this hack to make your unit speak streetnames, not just "turn right" that's all over the net works very well.

You do need to make sure your firmware is no later than 5.40.

POut the bmp and wav into the same directory as the configurator on your PC when you run the convert, so it doesn't need a pathname, from memory. Long time since I did this and I don't have access to ...

Nearly - you've done the hard bit.

Looks like you are putting a pathname into the congirator for the wav and the bmp, that matches the asc pathname?

That will fail - you actually have to put the ...

Lord, this seems to be heavy weather for you. Be easier to train a barrel of monkeys in a wheelbarrow attached to the front of your car to hoot every time they see a camera. Just an idea.
