MioPocket 4.0 Release 68: A Comprehensive Guide
MioPocket is a popular and versatile unlock for GPS devices running Windows CE. It allows you to use your device for more than just navigation, such as playing media, reading e-books, browsing the internet, and running various applications. In this article, we will explain what MioPocket is, what features it offers, what devices it supports, and how to download and install it.
What is MioPocket?
MioPocket (MEE-oh-pok-it) is an "unlock" for GPS devices (also known as PNAs) running Windows CE. Such devices almost always boot into the manufacturer's software with no way to exit it, meaning that you cannot run any other software; i.e. the device is "locked." Unlocking your device allows you to use it for far more than the manufacturer intended (ex. for music, movies, appointments, other navigation apps, etc.) and more like a PDA.
MioPocket is the most-packed and most-fully-featured unlock for PNAs available and is free and legal to use, as it consists 100% of freely-distributable content. What MioPocket is not is a replacement for MioMap, Mobile Navigator or any other OEM navigation software. It is just a frontend from which you may launch the navigation software that came with your device or that you purchase separately.
What features does MioPocket offer?
MioPocket comes with just about everything that you might want: three media players (video and audio, nearly all popular formats, including MP3, WMA, AAC, OGG, MP4, H.264/AVC, WMV, MOV, DivX, XviD and more), four e-book readers, multiple dictionaries (including English to 5 languages), dozens of games, two image viewers, two paint programs, MS Office document viewers, text editors, handwritten note-taking apps, four general GPS plotting/mapping apps (good for geocaching), three different appointments/tasks apps, internet apps, registry editors, task managers/switchers, file managers, a contacts app, a calculator, a unit converter, an alarm clock and more (all free/shareware). See the Readme file for a full list. Note: MioPocket does not come with MioMap, iGo, Garmin, TomTom or any other commercial navigation software. Icons are included for them, but not the programs themselves (since they are not free).
What devices does MioPocket support?
Technically, MioPocket should run on any Windows CE-based device. Despite the name (a nod to the Mio brand), it's evolved to become flexible and not hard-coded to any particular brand or configuration. Every device is slightly different though and due to the great many brands and configurations that are out there the ease of installation and the number of apps and features that actually work will vary. Most major Windows CE-based GPS brands such as Mio Magellan Navigon Navman Sanyo and Asus (as well as many other lesser brands like Becker Rightway Insignia Binatone Medion Nextar Route 66 and Wayteq) have installation instructions in MioPocket's Readme file. For brands that MioPocket does not include specific instructions for there are also some general instructions for SD-free installation on just about any device but it's always a good idea to check around online (especially in the gpspassion.com forums) to see if and how others have done it. Note that TomTom and Garmin devices are Linux-based and hence MioPocket (which is Windows CE-based) cannot run on them.
