    Does iGO8 run via the SD card?

    Have a look at the card with iGO8, as there will most likely be some simple text file pointing to the iGO8 executable.

    Mimic this on your new SD card with OziCE's executable.

    Yes iGO8 is on a 2gb SD card
    There is a shell notepad in the folder
    igo8\iGO8.exe
    I changed it to
    igo8\iGO8.exe\OziExplorerCE.exe
    it shows up on the menue but when you hit the gps button it say's can't find excutible shell file?

    The shell.ini is a simple addressing text file.

    In the first instance it is pointing to folder iGO8 then the executable.

    For Ozi CE you must change the shell.ini to address the Ozi CE folder and executable.

    You need to download the PNA version of Oziexplorer and follow the install instructions.

    By default OziExplorerCE will be installed into a folder called OziExplorer.

    So something like

    OziExplorer\OziExplorerCE.exe

    Ok so do I need to download OziExplorer before I dowload the CE?

    Sorry I meant the PNA version of OziexplorerCE, which sounds like you have.
    On my PDA, the file structure of Ozieplorer is;
    Oziexplorer 2\OziexplorerCE

    We're all tripping over ourselves.

    Bshwckr is on the right track. My memory fails me at times.

    ... with a '.exe' on the end for the shell.ini
