Hello,

Can't get Locus and Tomtom working on my note 3
the Navigation programms are installed and are working fine, however it is not possible to get any access to the navigation maps
Already did the work around in this Topic: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2617921
(is this only working for media or also data)
Also changed the path, where the Navigation maps are stored, even stored the navigation maps in the main storage
it seems to me, that the Navigation programs are looking for the navigation maps a non excisting map, or can't acces that map.
Anybody an idea, Tia

Hi,

I had a similar problem after flashing the official 4.4.2 ROM from Samsung, and applying the same fix.

I just used Root Explorer to move the whole TomTom directory from the root of the External SD card to the root of the internal SD, (NOT phone memory) and then it all worked with no worries.

Hope this helps you out.

Hello again, tried several folders, so far no good, is it possible for you, to discribe from scratch which folder you used? TIA
for instance, mnt/sdcard/tomtom/ or storage/sdcard0/tomtom/

Hi wiebew

Apologies for not getting back sooner, I've been out most of the weekend.

Just fyi, I had this problem when I updated to the official Samsung 4.4.2 (N9005XXUENA6_N9005OXXENA5_XEH). I'm running rooted using Chainfires awesomely easy to use, CF Auto Root.

This is what I did, step by step.

1 - Using Root Explorer, I copied the tomtom directory from the root of the extsd card
2 - I then pasted the tomtom directory to the root of the internal sd card. So afterwards it was /storage/sdcard0/tomtom. I may have rebooted, but can't honestly remember now, sorry.

I didn't have to change any permissions or anything else, after this copy/paste procedure TomTom started to work again.

I've since updated to the latest official Samsung ROM (N9005XXUENB3_N9005OXXENB1_XEO) and TomTom is still working quite happily.

Hope this helps, if there is anything else I can do to help let me know.
