I'm not surprised Navman weren't able/willing to help Confused

You do realise that before you can install anything you will have to hack/unlock the 570 to get access to the Operating System?

Assuming you do, then you need to purchase TomTom Navigator 6 for PocketPC.

For PocketPC/WinCE devices the latest version is still TomTom v6.

TT6 is what I used.
I got rather fed up with it though. I much prefer SmartST as TT6 is quite slow on the PiN570. TT5 is quicker but not as modern Smile

What ???

Why on earth do you need to hack the 570 ??

TT6 runs straight from an SD card . I'm running it on mine with the UK & WE [675] map without any need for the so called hack .

So how do you install/run TomTom? Presumably you need access to WinCE somehow?

My Navman PIN 570 runs on Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 ,the device actually lists Microsoft Pocket PC version 4.20 .Now my Navigo runs WinCE and a so called hack [just 5 registry keys changed] was needed to run TT6 or 7 . The supplied software for the 570 , SMART ST ran straight from the SD card , infact my 570 now has the 2 satnav software on the same card without the need for any OS intrusion . Surely Windows Mobile 2003 and WinCE are not the same ?

WM and WinCE are not the same, my question was how you accessed the underlying OS which is normally hidden from endusers?

Sorry , I dont understand to need to access any OS on the Pin570 . I install TT as I would install any other program , either by running an exe or cab file from the PC with the 570 [ACERn35 clone PDA] linked using activsync or from a SD card . I'm afraid we may on crossed lines here , I respect your knowledge as I'm a mere beginner on the subject .

Pin 570 is not a standard locked PND -- it's a WM 2003 based PDA with GPS antenna; SmartST is just one of the apps. Navman discontinued Pin line sometime in 2005 or 2006. 570 was the last in line.
