Start CE

Icon - Start CE
Start CE - autorun for satellite navigation (GPS). Launch different applications depending on the presence of the memory card in the device.

How to use it?

Download the file Start CE from the download page.
Extract the folder Start from the downloaded file.
Edit the file Start.xml The default content:

Parameters:

  • card - path to the file which will be launched when the memory card is inserted (eg StorageCard \abc.exe),
  • nocard - path to the file which will be launched when the memory card is not inserted (for example, a path to a default navigation software),
  • loc - name of directory of memory card in the device (for example StorageCard),
  • wait - time in milliseconds after switching on navigation, before checking the availability of the card in the device (1000 ms = 1 s).

Copy the directory Start (with Start.exe and Start.xml) to the device memory (not on the card).

In the device settings change the default path of navigation application to the path to Start.exe. Optionally check option named like "auto-start navigation software on device startup".

How it works?

Principle of operation

The program will check if the memory card is inserted in the device. When the card is in the device, the Start.exe will launch the program from the path given by parameter card (configurable in Start.xml). If not, the application will launch the program from the path given by parameter nocard.

If the option named like "auto-start navigation software" is activated, the device after turn-on will launch the Start.exe. Else, after click in menu at icon of a navigation software also Start.exe will be launched.
