    Default MapThis w/ 4.01m33

    Hey guys

    Going to Japan next week

    Want to know, will this work in japan and will it work with Dark Alex's 4.01 custom firmware.

    I have access to a PSP-Fat(with 4.01m33) and the official Sony GPS unit (the 290)

    If so can I also request the map for Japan?

    Please get back to me ASAP

    Thanks.

    Why wouldn't it work in Japan? It's a Global Positioning System after all. If you had read the MapThis! wikibook, you would've known it should run on about any recent CFW.

    Also, we don't take map requests, as in most cases, you're not allowed to share those. Use GMDL to download maps yourself.

    I have DAX's 4.01 M33-2, on the Phat PSP with a PSP-290 GPS. For some reason I was not able to run MapThis (0.5.20) without getting the "ERROR: could not start USB ACC driver GPS will be disabled"-message at the start up of MapThis.

    1- When I copy the mapViewer folder (from the FW3XX) to the PSP\Game401\ folder it sais "There are no games", regardless whether I have set the kernel to 1.50 or 4.xx.
    2- When I copy the mapViewer folder (from the FW3XX) to the PSP\Game150\ folder the app runs, again, regardless of what I have set the kernel to in the recovery menu.

    So here I am, already deviating from the Wiki guide.

    So, obivously using option 2, I run into the GPS error, and I checked these two topics:
    -http://www.dcemu.co.uk/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=76816
    -http://www.dcemu.co.uk/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=76696

    And they inspired me to do some of my own problem solving: just play and see what happens. So I copied the mapViewer folder to the PSP\Game\ folder (kernel set to 4.XX), and guess what... it runs without any errors (So yes, Jehuty77, you can use Dark Alex 4.01 custom with MapThis and the PSP-290 GPS).
    So rather than sticking nicely to the guides and faq's, some tinkering by a newbie (me!) fixed the problem.

    Has anyone experienced the same?

    Whatsup....


    yeah i have the 4.01 m33-2 installed on my PSP SLIM .from Dark-Alex.. it took me....FOR REAL it took me about 5 minutes to install maybe less.
    i found that using the LED PANDORA battery when installed gives you a menu startup screen and everything.

    Now i had ver: 4.05 latest network update installed and it copied right over it with no problem.
    The MAPTHIS app works perfectly with my GPS PSP 290 receiver. only one thing i cant get to work is VOICE PROMPT SPEECH turn by turn... how do i activate it?????????? do
    you know??

    Did you have it working with 4.01? Are you using POI directions from Google?
