I am helping a friend with a new GPS he bought. The configuration file wants to see a program located at the following place:

sdmmc\66-con\\maps\route66.exe

I think the program is located in the maps folder. The problem, I think is with the \\ in the syntax. How do I make the location agree with the \\maps folder?

I hope it is OK to post this here.

does it have ...... in between the \\ that may be a shortversion address

or just browse the GPS drive

The handlheld finds the exe that it is supposed to find. It starts to execute the .exe file. The maps for the USA are located on the SD card. I think it is looking for the following path:

sdmmc\66-con\\maps\usacanada.prm

That is the exact path, there are no.... in the path. The maps are located at the following, according to Windows when we look at the contents of the SD card.

sdmmc\66-con\maps\usacanada.prm Notice that the program is looking for the \\ before the maps. I think we need to set up a file structure so it is the same as the path. I do not know what the \\ means.

I hope this is more clear than my first post.
