Re: GPS on the 5 for an outsider

So, I have a 605 wifi, got it before the GPS model came out, kinda didn't see that one coming. I havn't tried any archos GPS units, do they charge for the service or for updates? This is 605 GPS/or 5/5g/7...? Well, The updates are done through Archos so they are free as far as I know. Once you purc...

Re: THE GPS FOR A5 and 605!!!

I had the 605 a year or so back, when I tried the installed it linked the 605 not the 5....once I was able to take the 605 off the archos site and register the 5 as the only unit I own...then the installer worked.....that is, with a new code from archos. Can anyone explain in detail how to do this ...

Re: GPS Support

I feel your pain jfelix. I tried the step by step that Jaffar put in another post. It does nothing. I copied the files to the right place but when plugged into the gps mount, nothing happens. There is no initiation sequence to tell the 5 that it needs to boot up the gps.... If everyone has the same...

Re: GPS for the archos

At 99 dollars for the gps dock, I dont think its worth it, I would just buy a separate gps for the car. (there are many cheaps out there.) I've tested out a lot of GPS products and if you think "cheaps one" will get you to your destination..you are wrong. you'll be stranded at a dead end ...
