If the device is shut while writing files you'll end up with heaps of corrupted data turning your system useless.
2. problem I have is that cuting the power to the battery is one of the worst choices I have seen so far
I totally agree with you for the data stability and the choice...LOL
The problem is that I cannot tamper with the ignition and/or anything else in this car as it's still under warranty.
I own a GARMIN 760 too and being used to not having to start/stop gps manually (always starting/stopping with ignition) I wanted to have the same thing...I know this is different from GARMIN because it has the WinCE OS and the gps runs as an application on top of the OS. I am not much of a WinCE user, and I will probably never use it as an OS in the car.
If you don't mind me asking, if I am not copying/moving files from/to the WinCE interface or running anything else that would create read/write I/O within the OS, what else could corrupt?
Is the GPS soft (IGO8.3) writing anything into the OS files?
Or the whole thing is running on top of the OS?
I am asking these questions because I have no idea how these devices with WinCE work...
Thanks and forgive my ignorance if I am asking stupid questions...
