Thumbs up HOW TO: Get Route66 to download maps and make voices work

Out of the box, your Samsung i8510 can't download maps from Route66's (Samsung Navigator's) online store... here's how you fix the problem:

1) Connect the phone to your PC and select Mass Storage mode (or use Y-Browser if you're familiar with it)
2) Navigate to the E:\System folder on your PC (where E: is the phone's internal mass storage, NOT a memory card)
3) Create the following folders (each is a sub-folder of the one above):
3.1) Apps
3.2) Route66_V8
3.3) Data
3.4) Maps
4) Check you now have E:\System\Apps\Route66_V8\Data\Maps as a folder path
5) Disconnect the phone from the PC (to give the phone access to it's E: drive again)
6) Go into Route66 > Extras > Maps > Route 66 store and see if it will now let you download maps to your phone

To get voices to work (your phone has one voice pre-installed, but in the wrong place) you need to do the following:

1) Download Y-Browser from
2) Install Y-Browser onto your phone
3) Open Y-Browser and navigate to Z:\System\Apps\Route66_V8\data\audio
4) Copy the english-female.speech file there (press options > edit > copy)
5) Navigate to E:\System\Apps\Route66_v8\data\audio
6) Press Options > edit > paste to copy the file into this location

*that should be it, but to be sure, there's another file worth copying*

7) Navigate to Z:\System\Apps\Route66_v8\data\StringRes
8) Copy the 01 - english.lang file in there (press options > edit > copy)
9) Navigate to E:\System\Apps\Route66_v8\data\StringRes
10) Paste this file into that location (press Options > Edit > Paste). IF Y-Browser pastes both files into this location, highlight the english-feemale.speech file and press the C key to delete it

That's everything - in Route 66 you'll now have English Female as an available voice.
