Hello,

I'm actuallty working on Ford's SYNC3 system which is based on QNX 6.50. I have full access to it and would like to modify the navigation system. Actually, the system uses either Telenav (for EU and NA maps) or NNG (for rest of the world). None of those two systems is really satisfying as they are closed source and don't allow much modifications.

Therefore, I would like to build (compile) or port another system; preferably open source.

First I thought of osmand which is open source but I was told that QNX doesn't have everything needed to port it. Now I wonder if Navit : www navit-project org could be compiled for QNX.

So I would appreciate if anybody could help me / give me some info on it.

Regarding closed source apps, I saw that some car brands using QNX run Tomtom. But I can't find anything regarding an SDK for this.

Thanks in advance for all your help / hints.

Maybe it is not appropriate to ask here.. But it seems you have already give up your another thread.
I'm also on to that SYNC3 system, but I only got a update image that I dont know how to extract. Can you tell me how you extract that image?
It seems like QNX6 filesystem but I failed to mount it. I downloaded the files you posted in your another thread, and carved binaries from my own image, the files seems to fit.

Sorry I can't help you about your problem, and sorry for the interrupt, but I really need some help and find nowhere to ask. Thanks.

Hi stang18, I wish I had knowledge on the topic and could help you, but I can't.
I'm very interested if you could elaborate on how you gained full access to the SYNC 3 system.
I would much appreciate it and I believe the people from this thread would also be interested:

Thank you so much and I hope someone will be able to help you too.

Well I just noticed that the thread I added above was yours to begin with and seems you've managed to get all the access you wanted.
I'd be very happy if you could share the procedure of how you managed do it.

Thanks!
