Do you even get signal in the first place? I could try to help you with the software but first you need to check if you even get signal. Otherwise it will be your GPS device that connects in the back.

When i click gps it goes straight to no signal. I once was able to go into the setting and check signal and i had bars. I think its software related though. Ive reset the unit, unplugged the antenna. The home screen comes up first then when i try to click an option it freezes and goes to no signal.

You can take the SD off and go check the signal in the settings. If your gps goes straight to signal try 2 things - take sd car off / disconnect battery for atleast 15min or disconncet unit. put a screenshot here of the signal. I want to make sure is not hardware related. Also do you mind Igo 8.0 or Igo 9.0?

The unit comes with 8.0 if you bought it from them with the sd card and then you will have to upgrade if . Better look and better performance overall

Ok, i did buy it from **********. So do you think you could supply me with the upgraded software if we rule out the antenna as being the issue?

Yea I can do that. I won't be able to send it to you online though. Is kinda big. You need at least a good sd card.

Before you do any of that, Please submit a screenshot of your GPS signal. No need to go through the whole stress of the SD card yet

possibly a software issue then

have you unchecked auto start up in the main menu ?

what is the directory showing for the load up files ?

Did you try downloading the program from the link i gave you in the other thread

put it on a sd card and install it and it should work
id buy a new sd card (at least 4gb) though rather than use one that came with the unit
