I agree, it"d be an excellent to include custom software, customize the layout that the screens, etc., however I don"t really mean it to happen. If GPS service was no free, I"m sure someone would find a way to hack it till they found a method to get it because that free. However, due to the fact that it"s already free, the "hackers" probably have actually bigger points on your minds.

We have the right to still keep our finger crossed though..


We recognize it"s an eight processor. Look in ~ the shutdown diagnostics and you check out a CPSR it is registered which is characterized in the arm architecture.

If girlfriend are acquainted with computer style take a look at pg 8 ARM7 register collection at http://tinyurl.com/2sjw4t

As much as the OS I have examined the binary in a hex editor and it"s eight assembler. Over there is no indication what OS is used. I doubt Vxworks or home grown closed os based on the licenses in the mechanism about. No GPL or BSD license so more than likely not a Unix derivative. Note: the FreeType Project, JPEG and also the Expat XML parser licenses.

Most installed OSes are stripped come the bare minimum, therefore it may not be easy to determine the OS components.

The diagnostics display screen showing the OS stacks yes, really does not show an OS , but you have the right to see the storage foot publish of the features of the OS.

Note: ns have worked on various installed OSes top top various computer architectures (Intel, PPC, ARM, MIPS).

The Garmin iQue offered Palm OS


The Garmin iQue supplied Palm OS 5.2. I am pretty sure the nuvi os is not Palm OS based unless access has stripped down version of Palm OS. I have actually not offered an OS from access since lock bought PalmOS so ns am not acquainted with their current offerings.

Some that it? that is just a


Some the it? that is just diagnostics pages because that Garmin engineering and also manufacturing. Production uses it to make certain your Garmin is not dead-on-arrival.

The batter test web page is very useful! The number of cycles (Chrg Cycles) will certainly tell you once your battery will certainly die. Roughly 300-500 discharges/charge cycles until your battery will be worthless.The Bat Chrg stats are an extremely useful because that anyone do a homemade charger native parts.

The Audio check page has a great tone generator you have the right to use to tune a piano or guitar.

Data card Test page would be an excellent to use if you doubt your data map is corrupting data.

additionally we deserve to extract some info on the design. It"s an arm based tradition processor and also a few other tidbits choose the USB_ID which her Nuvi uses on USB bus to determine itself to your PC. I"d have to go through all the data....

It"s actually fairly easy for the sensibly handy person. I replaced my 760"s battery a while ago and the battery add to the little tool kit was much less than $20. Good as new again!
