You can't use the provided cable because it won't fit in the car because of the air vent which is touching the back of the szenco unit....

Or if you're lazy you can play with this....

I was super lazy & didn' even bother plugging my car anttena in at all.

Hi!

A few months ago, I bought my E46, of course used and with an, how it seems, Enco device already installed. It exactly looks like the B046 and runs windows CE and iGo. The previous owner couldn't tell me anything about it and just told me to search for Dynavin. But it isn't a Dynavin, it has the front usb connector on the left side and the user interface is exactly the one of the Enco devices.

Everything worked fine at first, but about a month ago, it started to loose satellite contact while navigation was in progress for no obvious reason. Switching off and on did help mostly. Sometimes the satellite connection was regained without doing anything. And there where no tunnels or something like that, only sky above.

Today it lost the satelite contact again and since than the touchscreen doesn't work too. Sometimes it receives a touch, but mostly there's no reaction. When I remove the sd card for maps, it tell's me, that no navigation software is found and it beeps every time I touch the screen, so I guess the screen is still alive. With the map card installed it start's automatically to the screen, where I may choose for search or to display the map, but it doesn't receive any input from the touch screen.

The knobs do work and the remote control seems to work to. I didn't manage to the setup, where I may try to recalibrate the screen.

How would I fully reset the Enco? When I switch it off, or do a reset, does WinCE a cold or a warm start?

Enco b046 problem please help!!

Hi i have a enco b046 unit. The problem is that when I click on the NAV button, it shows the android loading up and then says "NO SIGNAL" and repeats this process over and over again. I have checked all the wiring and the gps antenna and it is all fine, It used to work and overnight it started doing this.

Has anyone got a solution maybe software fault or has anyone got firmware to upgrade this or something??

Please help !!

Thank you

My GPS can't lock to the satellites so it is stuck on searching for GPS signal. I have reset the GPS and shows the satellites in the monitor but will not work. I am suspecting the antenna. Does anybody know what antenna replacements are out there?

I think any of those generic eBay antennas will work, but I hope someone else who actually bought one can verify: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Free-Shipping...item4175129a33

Yeah I am, but that's after I got everything figured out. The only pain now is the fact that I can barely see anything in direct sunlight. Other then that I'm happy with it.

WinCE Desktop on Enco B046

Hi guys. Is there any way to access the WinCE desktop in the B046?


In the B146 model maybe is posible the access to the desktop by changing the path to the Navy with custom explorer file, but in B046 this is impossible because the navy button bring directly to the android board and is not option to change it

Maybe creating a custom autorun on sd card?

I think is very interestant the access to wince side...
