I have installed the 30 day trial version of SD on my new netbook and I'm delighted with its functionality.
Today, I received my chinese 5" device. It is a Win CE 5.0 unit and has a micro card slot.
I have bought a new micro SD card and adapter to fit it nto the SD card slot in the netbook.
I have transferred the SD files (6 of) onto the micro card. The files total just under 60mb and the charts are UK only.
Try as I might, for over four hours, I have been unable to get the SD system to run on the GPS unit. At one point I had an outline of the UK coastline and red graphics for NOTAM points, but nowt else. I suspect that was actually in the GPS unit, rather than on the micro card.
When I put the micro card in the unit, the little icon lights up at the top of the screen to indicate it is there. I have managed to set up Windows mobile device center and the two units do connect.
I've clicked every possible opion on the GPS unit but can't find any way of getting it to interact wth the SD mcro card. So, have I been unlucky and simply bought a unit that will not run SD ? Or, do I need to download something else onto the card or into the GPS unit to enable the system to work?
So near, yet so far :-(
