mio and GPS
Nov 7 2008, 6:11 PM EST
Hey guys i don't quite understnad how the gps function works on the tilt.

I have a Mio unit and the CD with the maps for the unit. I'm wanting to giuev the unit to my brother since my tilt has GPS functions. But i don't have a data plan and don't want to pay for Telenav for for usage.

How do i load the mio maps onto my tilt and get it to work without paying anything outta my pocket, since i already bought a MIo unit a couple months ago

Do you find this valuable?

First you have to get on ppcgeeks.com and find the software to unlock the phone so the gps will work. This is if you have verizon. They lock the gps so you cannot you it. Then after you unlock the phone you will have to install a new rom. Its not as hard as it seems. Then you copy the mio software to your micro sd card and run the program from it. I have a Tytn and I have done this and it works great. You will need software to toggle the gps on and off before you start the mio program. Do you find this valuable?
