I have found on a very good Italian site, the program to unlock (so to speak) the C220. I wanted to start a thread in english to hopfully get some more intrest in opening up the capabilities of the C220.
Here is the site
It is a C250 site but the script and program works great on my C220 US model from Circuit City.
Here is what I could get from the google translator and my personal experiance.
This script and setup gives you a new front interface with winCE 5.0 usability and a set of bundled apps. Our good friend Antonio provides a great little set of scripts and apps to allow you to play MP3 and video,and view pics. You get a file explorer and system utilities. The mio digiwalker software works great when in the new shell so it is to me as good as the C310x but with updated maps and faster 3d screens.
Please check it out, it is pretty good. If you are a programer you may be able to enhance it further. Just tryin' to spread the word for anyone looking to get an entry level MIO and add MP3, etc... support.

Is it possible to install MioPocket(SD Method) on Mio C220 with instructions from MP (read me), or i must do this second (complicated) method with Mio transfer hack and Script_3.24r.Thank you and Best Regards.

Hi, I have miopocket 2.0 from toro (spanish website) working well with miomap and Igo8, but to start the pseudo desktop I have to take off and to reinsert the 2GB SD card. There is some script or how I have to make the autostart the MioPocket desktop? or at list pressing the MioMap from the initial menu of the c250.

Not sure if anybody still uses this Mio thread, but I have an old Mio C220 that I'm trying to unlock. Questions:
1. I lost the SD card with the map data - is it possible to unlock a C220 without an SD card and then load unlocked maps onto a off-the-shelf SD card?
2. When I use the Mio Transfer Hack C250 by FredLynx, I see the 2 columns for PC and Mio, but nothing is clickable. I.e., I can't open up any directories on either side. Understandable for the Mio since there's no SD card, but puzzling for the PC side.
Any feedback is appreciated.

I'm looking for the easiest way to unlock my c220. I would like to do this by SD card instead of changing the flash. I need the most simple way. Thanks.

Gidday , have a C220 , done the Miopocket & seems all good , how do I get it to work with my Hema maps ?

This may be a dumb question: Will the following registry work?
Launch50 has been occupied by fox-copy in my device. Thanks a lot for any feedback.

o_sole_mio, sow lets forget about firmware upgrade.
regarding the unlocking the "not unlock able" version ... and explorer. Don't try to start the explorer from filemance. Is not going to work. the explorer has to be started be OS (using registry
Regarding the upgrade:
- you are wrong: there is a firmware upgrade embedded in that exe file (we tacking about the file that make the firmware upgrade). If you are interested I can tell you how you can extract that file from exe ... but I don't think is going to be useful, because is for other device - with different hardware.
My opinion about the "firmware problem" is that:
1. there was a first release of C220 (where can be that: on the biggest market - California). This release was build according to MioMap 3.2 (this miomap doesn't have TTS).
2. a new version of software was released: MioMap v 3.3 (with TTS capabilities). But this new version request a component "Notify" that is not present in the OS build. They make a new build with Notify included. (this supposition can be checked very ease: install MioMap 3.3 on the "not unlock able version". start the MioMap v3.3. Try to change the Voice to TTS ... ).
Sow this is the reason why there are 2 versions of ROMs.
Another fact the support this supposition: All other "more expensive" devices from Mio (not the kiosk) have the option to upgrade the MioMap software from 3.2 to 3.3 ... except the low costs (old C220, C250). and this is not because they are mean, is because is not working "reliable" due to a ROM missing.
You can ask mio (I tried) regarding the upgrade to 3.3. They will say "We are working on that, but every interesting device need time to ...." anyway ... the short version is: you can forgot about upgrade.

Greetings.I've been reading and learing thru here since aquiring a C220s last week,and in that time I've tried a few different scripts as well as MioPocket 3.Thanks for all the great and useful info.
The one I found that works best for me is Script 3.24r.
But I have a question.Is there any way to make the media player minimize so I can use Miomap at the same time?And if so,how do I do it?(remember,I'm a fairly noob at this)

I have a C220 and I am using Mio Pocket. I installed iGo8.exe deleted by Moderator - discussion of illegal software is prohibited. Congratulations, dude, you're now on the "watch" list

After trying lot of unlocks for C250 i decided to try a different SD card - worked first hit
For benefit of any other C250 owners (other models maybe affected) - it's not compatable with 4 gb SDHC card - apparently OK with std 4 GB SD card, but i've ordered std 2 GB SD card

That is firmware dependent ... so first question: do you have MioMap3.3 or MioMap2008? Can you download (using DiscRW) your SMFlash? Probably you should move to: http://www.gpspassion.com/forumsen/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=127723 and we can go further from there.
