After a half a day of testing and testing I got the solution , now Igo primo is working like a charm on Mio 7700LM with no errors, I build my own unlock from flash disk , there is only one test left to do it as from SD card the software work flawlessly , I'm just curious now how Igo primo act from internal memory , when this test will be over I will post my results in here together with my UNLOCK

all the tests has been done and everything is working like it should , even Navigon is working now on this sat nav .

Lets start with the beginning :

First download the archive from this link :



1- unpack only with 7zip , password for zip file is d3ffect
2- connect your Mio 7700 LM to pc and rename the folder SmartST_CE with any desired name
3-copy the new SmartST_CE folder from archive in My Flash Disk \ Program Files \Navman
4- copy the folder Mobilenavigator on SD card, if you want to run the software from internal flash you have to modify the line in to Page1.ini from My Flash Disk \ Program Files \Navman\SmartST_CE\Pages

First time when you run the software a popup will show up like in the next image :
Just press ok and igo primo will start , after this everything will run normal without any popup

L.E I forgot to delete the save folder , I'm sure you will do it before running the software

Imagine

L.E I will post Navigon software only on demand

Hi Secuiu - WOW !!

I hope that you can read everything that I have to say in English - I wish I could respond in your own language.

I was very grateful to you when you posted the news about spending so much time on the unlock but I have to admit my hopes were not high about it working for me - not because I did not believe that you were being successful, but my device seems to have defeated quite a few people who obviously knew what they were doing.

I downloaded your file and followed your instructions very carefully - the instructions were excellent and clear. I had a bad moment when I looked in your files for Primo.exe ! I thought - he has forgotten to put Primo in, or he has forgotten to tell me that need to put Primo on the card, but, of course, Primo is renamed ! I finally realise !

I started up the device with the SD card in and I got the warning screen as you mentioned - when I tried to close the warning screen with the little 'x' in the top right, I got the screen again and again - I was obviously not pressing accurately enough top close it and was pressing the button behind it.

Once opened, the software went through its setup process and everything seemed to work as normal and looks GREAT. I am not someone who needs the 'latest, most colourful shiny' version of anything, but the version of Primo you have installed looks brilliant. I have some iGO R3 HERE [Navteq] 2020.(Q2) EUROPE maps - will those be alright to install ?

I can't properly think of the right way to express my gratitude for all that you (and everyone else) has done to help me. Thank you so much, I really appreciate it.

I know someone else with a Mio 7700LM - would it be OK for me to share the new knowledge with them about this ? Let me know.

I would like to try running the software direct from the internal memory and I noted that you include a method for doing so in your instructions - is there anything I have to be careful of before trying that ? Is there any reason that would not be a good idea ?

Do the files in the 'SmartST_CE' folder control the ability of the device to connected to a PC via USB ?

Anyway, enough extra questions, Thank you again.

Hi Secuiu - Thanks for all of that.
I edited the pages.ini file and moved the 'Mobilenavigator' folder to the internal drive - that seems to work fine.

1) Can I delete the old Mio software that came with the 7700LM ? There are a whole bunch of loose files plus a 'Navman' folder (1.14GB) ?

2) Can I delete the old SmartST_CE folder (352MB) ?

Is it OK for you to post the Navigon software ? I would be interested to see that running on this system.

Thanks again for all your work, great job.

make a backup to the original software just in case but be very carefully of what you are deleting , you can't delete everything from My Flash disk, I suggest you to delete only the folders :

Navman located in to My Flash Disk
SmartST_CE (old one ) located in to My Flash Disk\Program Files\ Navman

do not delete the rest of the files as the device needs them to work properly

I will upload Navigon software tomorrow only with UK map
