cefiro 2006 GPS

#1 Post by kellogs » Tue Mar 11, 2008 1:29 am

Hi

I am driving a cefiro 2006 which comes with the GPS system ...

After using it for 2 years i noticed that some of the routes are inaccurate and the gps system is pretty "dumb"

I am thinking to reinstall the GPS system ...

anyone has any thought or idea?

The GPS software packaged with the Cefiro is the AgisNavigator. This software is not supported on this site. It is also likely that the OS used in the navigation computer on the car is a Win CE which again is not as easily configured to operate the software which can accept the maps form here. Only two easy options for you are to:

1. Go back to Agis and kick their butt and demand better after sale support which you are most unlikely to succeed or

2. Forget you onboard GPS and but a new standalone system which can use the maps from here.

Well if you can have access to reinstall the OS, get Windows Mobile and you can use many other navigation software and even those from Garmin then you can enjoy the maps being produced here. However, I am not sure if this is possible as I do not own a Nissan. They could well burnt it in ROM being an OEM system.

It looks like a PC box to me under the front passenger seat ... i need to figure out if the OS is stored on the flash card or ROM ... if it is flash card i will reinstall it :)

Windows Mobile has driver for the GPS unit or I need to get driver from Agis/Nissan?

Thanks!

isn't the OS running together with the onboard ECU? or is it a stand alone for GPS only?

If you are able to upgrade your OS to WM, yes you do not need drivers from Agis as you are not likely to use anything from Agis thereafter. As for Nissan, for the GPS aspect of the configuration, you do not need any drivers from them but there may be other functions which your onboard CPU may serve and this you will mostly need support from Nissan. When you said you want to change the OS, I assume that you know what you are talking about and know your way around these things. I can only provide inputs specific to GPS navigation hardware and software in respect to you setup. As I said earlier, I do not own a Nissan and never had, so I am not familiar with their setup.

Of course, one can change OS of any computing system. The issues surfaces when you need to link this computing system with other subsystems, then you need the correct interface and drivers which more likely than not are proprietary.
