My china navi allows 3rd party apps. How to install Hobd?

Hunnenkoenig » 25 сен 2015, 16:28

I have a new in-dash china navigation device that allows 3rd party app installations.
I have games, Internet, Digital TV everything.
I have integrated bluetooth (for phone mainly).
I have WiFi and 3G.

I have an SD card slot for choosing .EXE files (the navi SD card slot) for app installs on the device.

I downloaded the hobd standalone demo and the icon package.
HobDrive starts fine from the SD Card.

My questions are:

1. Where to put the icons in the hobd file/directory tree?
2. How to install HobDrive actually on the device? I don't want to use it from the SD card.
3. Can I then choose hobd by icon from the screen?

Thanks for answers in advance.
Until then I will try to figure it out by myself with the demo version.

Hello,

You should download hobd-standalone package for winCE indash units.

Just unpack the archive somewere on SD card, then choose HOBD.EXE as a custom loader (this may be named as "Navigation Program path").
This should run hobdrive automatically.

Unfortunately to install it as an icon into your environment, you should investigate if the Shell app allows this on your unit.
If not, the only choice is to install some customized shell program which allows customization (like "iPhone today", Wolf shell, etc.)

It is your choice whether to install it on SD card, on on internal storage.

Thanks for reply.
I edited my original post.

As I state there, my device allows 3rd party app installs.
They also said, it'S possible. I don't just think so.
There are already games and apps installed on the device by the manufacturer.

I don't know what shell they used.

None the less I don't know if HobDrive was installed on the device or runs from the SD card, because the icon doesn't appear.

So if we assume, that I have a shell that installs the app on the device, then how is it done?

And still: Where do I put the icons in the HobDrive directory to be isntalled/used?

Well, not buying the product then.

Giving unrelated answers and then ignoring the topic is not helpful to get new customers.
I just saved $21 I suppose.

I will just use my iPhone for getting OBD2 data then.

Sorry, support is offline on weekends.

Once again for the installation: WinCE devices are often "closed" systems and allows only fixed set of apps. They however normally may be easily "fooled" by replacing navigation app path with what you want. In your case you should point your navi app path to HOBD.EXE - and it'll start hobdrive then. The same way you may copy hobdrive into the internal device storage and point in out as navi app path - it then will start from internal storage.

Hobdrive icons are supposed to be used for manual configuration, there is just no plain and easy way to put them into your shell interface. This should be discovered separately.
