What did Archos say, when you contacted them, about each of these individual technical problems which you experienced?kauftip wrote:I'll sell mine to you, but you have to take also the Car-mount and the DVR-station.
I read comments not only in this forum, but also on the site of AMAZON.DE, where I bought mine device from. Do not make yourself GOD of Archos-devices and do not blame the others, that they can not work with it. It is as simple to work, as to eat a hamburger. The truth is, that this device has a lot of problems. The dozen of firmwares confirms it. Or AMAZON are selling defect articles?
I have described my problems and they are not caused by me for sure.
As I said before - Ndrive is useless for me, because of the lack of maps for Eastern Europe. I never made the map for Germany, i.e., to work. Everything goes fine and when you start Ndrive - your 7-day trial is over! How could it be over, as I never made it to work till this time?
When does the 7-day period start? From the moment of purchase or from the moment of installing maps? However, there are other perfect working navigations (free of charge) for Android and I do not need Ndrive.
I could return the device, but how could I be sure, that the next one, will not be same?
YOUR device may have a lot of problems, however "Do not make yourself GOD" over these problems. They are YOUR problems. As I said, I have had no such problems, so they are not universal problems. QED.
Archos will tell you (or maybe they already told you when you reported all your problems to them?) that (most of) the FW updates were designed to improve the device, not just to fix problems. I believe that the large number of FW updates confirms only that Archos is committed to improving its devices for a reasonable period of time.
I had no difficulty in installing the maps for Western Europe on both of the devices on which I installed it. Having read all these threads as they were written, I AM aware that when people had difficulties with the 7 day trial period, and they contacted Archos, Archos support has solved their problem (by phone - by consensus, there's no point in emailling Archos, but they are quoted as responding to phone calls).
Specifically, getting back to the point of this thread, which of your problems were introduced by Firmware Version 2.0.45 / 1.9.34?
