Install GPS Maps On GPS Handheld Devices, The Step By Step Guide


There are a number of providers who do a better job in different parts of the world.

And getting the software you need is very simple. All you need to do is talk to your local GPS product dealer or, directly from the software provider’s website.

Here are some of the better-known GPS software providers:

  • TomTom
  • Route 66
  • Magellan

So once you’ve got your software you’ll want to install it.

Below is a step-by step guide on how to install the GPS software on our 5 Inch touchscreen GPS Unit. But it doesn’t really matter which of our models you buy the system should be the same.

The first thing to do is to put the SD card the software is on into the SD card slot:

As soon as you power up this model you see a screen with various media options including: Music, GPS, Video, Photo, Settings, and Flash.


Select setting then tap the setting image as shown above to get into the setting menu.


Once you are in the settings menu you will need to find the navigational path option, this could be on the first page of options but if it isn’t press the arrow button to see if it is in the second menu.


Now you are in the file selection menu and your job is to find an .exe file to initiate the GPS software. To do this in this model you hit the arrow button beside a file entry point. This is a little like the search button on Google.


Hopefully a folder will appear on the screen, much like it does in your computer. Double click on it to see the contents and look for the file marked exe.


Ah, there it is.


Once you’ve found it doubleclick on it and you will be taken back to the screen one step back.


The main difference between this screen and the last time you saw it should be that now there is a file listed on the screen. All you need to do is save that file:


And exit to the settings menu.


And that’s it you just need to exit back to the main menu and select the GPS option and you will never be without a map again.
