Can anyone help me regarding accessing the website for updating the maps on a Nozatec Sat Nav. According to the card that came with the sat nav the address is www. freemapsupdate.com but after a search I cannot find a website to access the map updates. I did find a P navi website which I think is the correct one but when I enter the ID "pnavi" and Password 12890780 it fails to enter the mapping page and comes up with an almost blank page with browloading at the top and then returns to the Pnavi website with the ID still in but the password blank. Do I have to connect the sat nav to the computer to access the website maps. Ive tried different browsers but without any success. I would appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction.

Go to this page then click on United Kingdom from the list given.
The files download within a zipped folder called United_Kingdom.zip. You need to open that within a program like Peazip and extract them to your own nominated place (could be the desktop if you like).
The folder currently contains four files with the types .fda .fpa .fsp and .fbl and you need to copy them to the map folder within the content folder on your tablet or MicroSD card (depending on where you are running the program file.
Delete the four older UK files of those types but leave the .ftr file in place as that contains truck specific information.
Pnavi told me that the it will work OK even though the .ftr file name is different from the other four. A quick test after I had downloaded the new files the other day appears to bear that out.

I know this is an old post but I didn't want to start a new one for a follow on... having downloaded the maps, the card says I can set the location .. right now my new (birthday present how cool is my Ms Tiggs) trucknav has a built in memory and a memory card... all the maps are on the built in but it sort of makes sense to me to move them off to the memory card... any ideas if this is simple?

Hi,

If I read your post correctly what you propose is to put the map files on the sd card but leave the system files on the main unit memory. I believe this is possible but it but it needs a change to the sys.txt file on the igo main folder to tell the system where to find the maps. I cannot help with the syntax of the statements to be included as I have not tried it. (not much help)
However I can suggest an alternative.
The problem with the units is that the 4gb internal memory is not large enough to host the complete system and all of europe maps you really need 8gb. espescially as the newer maps take more space. The approach I have taken is to copy the whole of the Igo folder to the sd card, then replaced the maps on that with the new ones and any associated poi files. (you can also add the user poi folders and files to this ). You then change the setting of the Navigation path on the second screen of the windows menu to point at the system on the sd card.
The advantage of this approach is that you do not make any changes to the delivered unit and you can revert to it at any time should you have a problem.

Hope this helps

John

or anyone that might know..

I've read your reply to claretmac;
my here sat nav doesn't have .ftr file for uk. It was working fine until last week but now it's not considering heights when calculating routes and is taking me through too low bridges.. Any idea why?
Maybe there was ftr file there on first update and i deleted it? Strange since it was working fine..
Thank you for your answer.
Kind regards

Given the circumstances that would seem to be the reason. A number of people have loaded maps to the Resources section so you should be able to download a set to obtain a .ftr file to use.

That was months ago, before I realised that Nozatec and the rest were using pirated maps and software and dumped what I had. I'd actually forgotten that my upload to the resources section was still there when I referred to a number of people having loaded maps there.
Unfortunately I think you will need to subscribe rather than expect members to circumvent the rules which restrict resources to subscribers.

ok, so Im wanting to update my satnav, and have had the same issue regarding the website, but worked it out, downloaded it....................now what? how do I get it from my laptop to my satnav? I connected the two devices, but nothing shows up..........so I now have updated maps on a zipfile....whatever that is............which is completely useless when I engage with a new roundabout/motorway connection up in Scotland, as happened recently.......satnave had no idea where we were or how to progress. Why dont they make things easy for us dummies
