Hi Sound1992 it sounds like your phone may be timing out to the home screen. Go to Settings then Home Screen and change Time out to None and see what happens.

Just wanna say Mapopolis works awesome for me now! I found out the slow Audiovox performance was due to opening up maps too large (Los Angeles). Routing can be a thus be a bit troublesome since you need to know the counties of start and stop, but otherwise Mapopolis is awesome. It would be nice if Mapopolis had a rerouting feature to avoid a certain freeway/road in times of construction/traffic. Routis had this feature. Keep up the great work!

Hi, Sound1922, an "avoid roads" feature is on the todo list, and it may contain time-of-day awareness (our Ris's idea). I'll agree that L.A. is a bear on the Smartphones, but have you tried using the quadrant maps instead of the big map?

Lamar, that's what I meant when I said LA caused my phone to crash to a halt. The quadrant maps are what I used to get around it and they perfectly, even when I load all 4 of them at once...seems like a strange bug.

Hi, sound1992,

Sorry I've missed this posting to now, but many Smartphones have a hard time opening maps over a certain size. This has been discussed elsewhere on the net, but if the quadrants work for you and the big map does not, I think you can safely assume that the size of your largest map is within the limits of what your phone will reliably open.


Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.

Since the latest C500 Software the Setup is in a different Location.

Press Start
Press 4 for Settings
Press 8 for Bluetooth
Choose Discoverable
Press Menu
Choose Devices
After it's found the Bluetooth Device you can give it a Name
Some GPS Receivers or the Phone need a Pin (Just try 0000 or 1111)
After that Press Menu again
Choose Com Ports
Press Menu
Press 1 Outgoing and assign Com 7
Press Menu
Press 2 Incoming and choose Com 6

That's it

Another thing for those having COM7 unavailable problems...try bonding with an empty passkey rather than '0000'. This helped me get my AVL BT-15 to work. For some reason both '0000' and no passkey both allow me to bond with my receiver, however if I used '0000' I kept getting COM7 unavailable.

I have just gone through all the tips and tricks in this track, but still cannot get my Mapopolis V4.60 charged SPV C500 to communicate with my iTrack GPS BT receiver. The pairing is OK, and using GPSDASH2, I receive data from the GPS reciever, but with Mapopolis nogo.

GPSDASH2 works with COM7 and more or less any speed I try, but not with any other COM port (as expected.

Anyone out there with another trick up their sleeve?
