Eonon GM5150 Buy with maps or use other sat nav maps?

I keep hearing people using different maps on their D5150 / GM5150

I am based in the UK, so what ever I choose I need full UK support in terms of maps.

Why do you use different maps to the ones offered by Eonon? Is it because they don't work? not very clear? not regularly updated?

If I decided to order without maps and get my own, how do I go about installing them? Where can I get them from?

And lastly if I do get my own maps, which are the best? well while being reasonably priced.

Thanks...

Seems like most people use IGO Primo 2.4 which can you download via torrent. There are UK maps for it.

Thanks,

How does it work? do you just load it on a memory card and plug it in?

I've not used torrents for some time, i don't mind paying for it though.

Hi jaffaz32, the map card we have for D5150 and GM5150 are the same Kudos map card, and we have Western Europe map card which can work in your country UK. Meanwhile, D5150/GM5150 also can work with IGO, Sygic and Polnav map card, only they are compatible with Windows CE6.0 operation system, but we still suggest you purchase from us directly, since it is the most compatible one. Thank you .

A buddy of mine got his d5150 with the maps from eonon and he didn't like them one bit. I remember riding in his car and the maps were horrid. He downloaded iGo 2.4 and loves it way more. I like it too. Much cleaner.

Can someone publish a DIY or a link for us noobs to the "torrent" sphere, on how to get and use torrent downloads?

I'd like to get ready for iGo Primo 2.4 as well. I'll have a GM5150 as soon as the next Group Buy link is populated with inventory and does not show "Sold Out".

Also, would someone provide this noob with a link to "torrent" DIY so that I can get the iGo Primo 2.4 maps for US.

What are the SD card requirements for this unit? Specific product link would be helpful and how should the card be formatted since it will be going into a windows CE OS. I have a Mac but it will format to most anything needed, just need to know what format to select before placing the iGo map files onto it.

Thanks for putting up with all the noob needs,

Mike

Not to rain on your parade but you do know what you are asking right?.....you are asking someone to write you a DIY guide and provide you links for "how to steal."

As someone who works in this business, pays A LOT of licensing fees to iGo, and pays to sponsor this forum, I know I don't particularly appreciate people stealing a product that we pay good money for and using this forum to do it....

Thanks for the update Jeff. I would be happy to find a BUY IT NOW link somewhere on the web for the iGo Primo 2.4 software so often touted as great for the Eonon hardware.

If this site had such a link I would be happy to buy it

http://www.nng.com/igo-primo

I have not been successful in finding a place even to BUY the product and welcome any and all solutions.

Do you have a link Jeff on where the product could be purchased? That would be most helpful.

Thanks,

Mike

Unfortunately no, this is part of the reason I think pirating it is so common. The licenses are tied to the individual products they are used on, so we pay iGo so that we can provide igo software for Dynavin units, but the version I have ONLY works with Dynavin units. Eonon would have to get iGo to license the program to them.....not going to happen, well not without the price going way up at least. A major factor with the eonons cheap price (and a source of frustration for legitimate businesses like mine) is the fact that they are not paying $$$ for licensing.

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for shedding some transparency onto this issue with iGo maps and the Eonon offering.

This is much clearer now.

Thanks again.

Mike

There are some torrents out there for iGo Primo but you will have to build the program up into the proper folders and updated maps.

I and others have had good success running iGo8 on the GM5150 unit. See my post here

http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showpos...&postcount=389

Others have posted their success as well in that thread.

I found a good torrent for Q2/2014 USA maps for igo8 and I also researched a great sys.txt file for my igo8 that is working very nicely in my GM5150

http://android-zone.ws/topic/17990-i...exico-torrent/

Pm me and I can send you my sys.txt file

Mike
