Do you know how to solve this? thanks.

i have been having the same problem i used it and then turnd it off and didnt use it for a couple of days and then when i went to use it again it was back to destinator and i had to wake up windows ce again just as bollea mentiond. any advise would be great thanks

That's the classic mistake. Instead of completely turning it off, you just darkened the backlight, but the device remained on!!

What you did is pushed the off button too long. It should be pushed only briefly to turn the device off. If WinCE is awake, better is to use the Windows Start button to put the device in Suspend.

hi, firstly i would like to say thank you for your time and effort on this project, hopefully i can get it working for me :)

ok, so i have followed the tut to the letter, i have installed tom tom 6 for pda's on my compasseo 500. after installing tom tom to the device using the setup.exe there is only a tom tom file on the memory card. the program does not appear in the programs list in the start menu so there is no way of actually starting the program. does any kind person know what i have done wrong?

thanx in advance

Hi, first of all I wanna say that im very impressed with your knowledge PsiDoc :) Im going to France but I have a Packard Bell Compasseo 500 (with Benelux card), so do you think i could install TomTom 5 on it? And if I mess it up or it doesnt work, will my compasseo still be ok then? If not, could I just use the reset button?

Many thanks in advance

I'm attempting an install on a PXA255 board and having the same problems. Any ideas?

Also, my board is XScale based, yet I have still have to modify the CABs for the install to proceed. Why is this?

If the problem persist, contact the program vendor. Program: TomTom Navigator.exe Exception: 0xC0000005 Address: FE45DF30".

The same versión of TomTom5 installed in a "normal" PocketPC is running fine without the POI error...

I suposse that it's a problem with the poi.dat file in my map. Is this the problem or it's a problem with the GPS400?

Thank you very much again Psi ;)


I'm getting the same error but on multiple maps so I don't think it's just the one file that is corrupt - has anyone discovered any other reasons for the fe45df30 error?

Do it work with the Compasseo 300 as well? (TomTom)
Is it the same modell as 500 but with less maps?

Do these modells have a backup battery?
Or do they lose information when you are out of power?
