Re: THE GPS FOR A5 and 605!!!

The GPS_Installer.exe on archos.com was fake. The only thing you download is a 345 byte sized .exe file, which infact only contains the information to open a command console... It didn't work, but it obvious that they're busy with these GPS for Archos5 things :) I guess that next firmware update wil...

Re: THE GPS FOR A5 and 605!!!

Can you tell me just HOW you got it to work?

Did you just install using the CD?
Did you download the new GPS_installer.exe?
Did you copy the folder to your Archos 5?
Do you have it registered to an Archos 605?

I tried multiple ways, but I just can't install it :(

Re: THE GPS FOR A5 and 605!!!

I managed to find one for the low LOW price of 5 euros!! After ordering they came tot the conclusion that they didn't have them and would need to order and eventually it would be 80 euros :( (still beats the archos shop 100 euros + 25 euros TNT delivery) It does however fit very nice (like it should...

Tech support asnwers really quickly! This is the second time I've asked them a question via the support section on archos.com and both times the questions were answered within 2 hours! That was, sadly, the good part, because the reaction assured me again that the GPS is not goign to work today: ----...

Re: THE GPS FOR A5 and 605!!!

One more thing:

I also tried the Mac/Linux install posibility, but after accepting the legal notice I have to click the 605 I have, which I don't... Strangely it's not possible to do this for the Archos 5 :( So there's a dead end too :(

Re: THE GPS FOR A5 and 605!!!

I've tried copying and pasting all, but archos says the file should be 1.4MB and when I download it, it is just 345Bytes! The result is that GPS_installer.exe just opens a command console and then stops... Maybe you guys could look at the file, because at work and working with firefox including nosc...

Re: THE GPS FOR A5 and 605!!!

I have a Archos 5 and a white GPS box (without Archos 605) and I will try when I get home (which is in 3 hours). If I can't fix it in 30 minutes you'll here it tomorrow :)

Poll: Have you gotten the GPS to work?

Hey guys, Last week I bought the GPS add-on for a really low price. Although i knew that I probably wouldn't work I still bought it, but it didn't work. I've read a few threads where there was some talk about the GPS system, but it's really hard to point out how many users have the GPS system and ho...

Re: Archos Support Issues - Complaint Petition?

It's agree with the fact that it LOOKS like everybody has problems with the device, since most people come here by accident when trying to fix a problem in the first place. BUT I also agree with the fact that there are TOO many problems with the Archos 5 (or any archos product the last 2 years for t...

Re: Archos Flight Mode

The only difference between flight and normal is that you can't turn on WiFi. So I guess it's made so that the Archos 5 can't auto-turn on WiFi because of widget request or something like that.

Re: any good device media syncing programs out there?

I guess you're looking for a program like MediaMonkey. It's free (if you don't want to do the most special things), but it's very good for playback, advanced tagging (even from the internet with good results) and I believe it's a good syncing program. I don't know for sure this is good for syncing (...
