Lost gps signal

Hello guys
I'm getting the "lost gps" announcement when running iGO. Anyone else with that issue? I also notice when I don't drive my car for a long period I always have to re-enstall the software, everything goes crazy when I start up my car ... The android side that is. I would not drive for 3 weeks, sometimes a month because I'm out the country, but every time I come back I always have to re-enstall. That's not a big deal to me anyway, I'm just worrying about this gps thing now.

I think I'm about ready to list this thing on eBay. If anyone here wants it you can pm me.

This thing is really pissing me off hey.
Ive installed a few apps, but really use the mp3 app the most.
I downloaded like 8 or 9 mp3 players, toyed with them for a few weeks and kept and bought 1 which I preferred.

But 1 damn thing which faulted on all of them and really it wasn't a software issue, its the damn dynavin, it doesn't store/save **** like my android phone.
Each time i load my app, i have to do all the freaking settings again, each time i load my mp3 player, i get the 1st time run dialogue boxes and then i keep getting asked to enter my serial for it after downloading the paid version.
So i even tried copying this program to the memory card, it wont, i was hoping it would save all the settings on that card, and nope, so i installed my sd card into my phone, downloaded the same app, installed it to the memory card, dynavin wont load the damn app.

Has anyone figured a way to save settings/preferences on apps we download off the market before i start pulling my hair out??

I've read quite a bit but I am still not sure how to stream music using the bluetooth on the iphone4.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

My seller advised me the unit should already be updated.
I have tried to update however, but nothing ever happened, via usb and SD.
Is there a step by step guide anywhere, in-case Ive missed anything?

God for some reason now, the android side of the dynavin doesnt load.
It sits there with the Dynavin logo and it flashes on and off every 10 seconds or so... wtf...

First, goto Bluetooth mode on your unit by pressing the right knob. Then pair your phone and start playing music on the iPhone.

Sounds like you need to reflash the Android OS.

No wtf about it, sounds like you've stuffed something up trying to update the firmware

It's logical to conclude that since trying to update the firmware something has gone amiss as most likely it wasn't done correctly.

to update firmware u just unpack the file to the sd card, insert it, and power on the unit. its loads automatically. if that dont work, the sd card isnt the correct format. some have said just formatting to fat32 works, others say u need the special tool to do it

Just wanted to chime in and say that I am fairly tech savvy and ran into some issues with installing. Basically, I was just looking at the install post here and not his site, which is brilliantly done. Almost all of my questions would have been remedied by going there earlier. I did have questions on how to do certain tricks, etc. Jeff went above and beyond. The product isn't perfect, but it is by far the only device like this. There is loads of potential. The thing is to experiment with what its capabilities are while being understanding that you may push those boundaries. Just because these boundaries are exceeded by some task you wish for it to perform does not mean the unit has issues itself.

Thanks again

I'm sure I'll be on here a lot trying to figure more tips out along the way.

I really wish the development of Android 2.3 for this device wasn't being handled by what seems to be one person. There are a ton of small things that I would like to tweak and experiment with (perhaps adding a suspend or hibernate mode for quicker startup). Perhaps attempt to port Cyanogen to the device.

To the guy developing it: Why haven't your efforts been made public so this might be able to move more quickly? Please give the community the tools and procedure to put our own firmware on the device instead of just binaries. Help us help you!

He didnt give up exactly.....he lost his job and had to spend his time pursuing more important priorities.

NAVI button

Im am waiting on a pre order from umitza, however I am thinking about just going to the V5. Can anyone tell me if the NAVI button will actually bring up a NAV app, or can it be linked to apps. I think it would be a bit cheezy if the navi button dosent work.
