Yep, /mnt/sdcard is showing empty and non read/write.... I can write fine to mnt/ext_sd/

Is this a hardware or software issue?

Ill try the same thing on the other units i have.

Yup, it was just that one unit....the internal sdcard will not mount.

other units are fine and what a surprise, tomtom works great.

any way i can reformat /mnt/sdcard/ without it being mounted. Even a system default reset wont wipe it as it compins about "unknown state" of the internal sd.

Sorry, I didn't get a chance to grab any screenshots of my filesystem yesterday, but I'll do that on my lunch break and get them to you. I do think it can be fixed, I think it's just a screwed partition that needs to be formatted manually.

Agreed, dont worry about the screenshot, i have 4 of these still here and just booted another one to see. /mnt/sdcard shows up and reads fine on the second one ive tried...it seems to be corrupted on the first unit.

How do you wire the backup camera so it switches automatically? Mine is wired to reverse lights and plugged into aux in

Hello all,

One remaining annoying issue is that Igo does not save the settings, I had read some time ago that the sdcard would not allow write but only read, with the root can we solve this ?

Also what can we do so that ALL apps are allowed to be installed and that we don't have the "your device is not compatible" message, one good exampole is dropbox which cannot be installed.

Thanks

Issue #1, I would recommend a reinstall of iGo. Mine has always saved the settings just fine. Just that, after saving the settings for the first time, if your DPI isn't set to 145, it refuses to run. There has to be an issue with your installation, I think.

Issue #2, that's something that needs ironed out. It's a simple change in the build.prop file, so that your device looks like something more popular to the Google Play store. To get around it, I just find the actual .apk files (I pull them off of my phone), and install them. After that, they update just fine on the radio.

You could try Market Enabler: http://code.google.com/p/market-enabler/

I haven't tried that yet.

dont splice the two pink wires,just use the one coming out of the radio side of the harness and use the brown rca input, they call it "back sight in" in chinglish,this is working for me and should work for you if everything else is wired correctly

I'll try the reinstall of Igo but it came installed on enco's card....I've switched to 120DPI because in 145 the apps in the top row of the screen were halfway off the screen, I have to change the launcher anyway

Thanks for the tip on the apk's I have a workaround for that

Dropbox cannot be installed on the phone BUT in Es explorer you can configure a dropbox network mount, so i'll find the apk's on the phone, send them to dropbox and then get them on the enco with Es explorer and install them from there...

I have a little problem with superuser which is working but not all the time, I'll try to reinstall or perhaps try SUmanager....

So where on the can bus does that wire go to? And I assume the yellow rca goes to the brown connector

OK sorry for all the posts, I figured it out.

The yellow rca goes to the brown input. I wired all the wires (including the license plate light cause I was dumb) to the reverse lights. So the led and the camera only come on when Im in reverse

I spliced the two pinks together (which didn't do anything) so I added a wire that goes from the pink (after they're spliced together) to a blue with yellow stripe I located behind the fuse box in the glove compartment. All is good now. Thanks for the support and patience
