There also is a (pay) product called Mobilla Player, I think.
BUT: pretty much ALL 3rd party apps, free or not, have been killed off by TT with its firmware 8x.
(TT used to welcome 3rd party developers, but no longer ..... )
FYI: It seems that it was 8.300 that really broke the API. I have the Mobilnova software running under firmware version 8.010, and all of the on-screen buttons for that application work. In fact, I just demonstrated a running copy of "The Sting" that was converted from DVD to their TT format using their Windows app to do so. I may have found it necessary to, ahem, fiddle the DVD data on the way to my hard drive to make that happen, of course.Pretty much though there are some posts that the author of Tripmaster has gotten or is working to get his product to work with N8 firmware.
If you have a complete Explorer, not Home, backup of your unit with installed software prior to V8 (ensuring hidden files/folders are showing), then it's usually a case of overwriting the loose files in the root of the unit.
But, be aware, N7 firmware won't work with version 8 maps.

Don't ask me why Mobilnova (not freeware, BTW, but inexpensive) still works under 8.010. I am also able to operate OffRoad Navigator under 8.010 with the one exception that's been there for a while -- some of the setup screen gets a bit messed up, but since the config file is easily editted with any ASCII text editor, that's posed no real problems.
When I decided to back up from 8.300 and its other problems, I thought it would be necessary to back all the way up to my Navcore 7 setup to regain these applications, but it seems that is not the case. And my jump was directly from Navcore7 to 8.300. I had to scrounge a copy of 8.010. If it matters (and it may or may not), these applications were installed while the unit was running a version of Navcore 7.
I am unaware of any that work with any recent version of the TT firmware. It takes the authors quite a bit of work, especially now, to write compatible applications. For the pain that TT has caused 3rd party authors, the 20 euro isn't bad at all. Understand, it's also more than a player for the TT. You need (and get) a Windows application that will convert your media to an appropriate size and AVI format for your TT to play. I'm quite impressed with the conversion software. The Sting is a mere 337MB in size with quite good video quality. My passengers really enjoy the audio thru the car's FM, too.3. Other than the paid software Mobilnova (20 euro doesn't seem to be cheap to me), what's the best media player (freeware) you guys would recommend?
That would be the ONLY reason to update the firmware, yes. Without the modified maps to go with it, all it does is create other annoying problems that didn't already exist at 8.010 and prior.4. What is the advantage of updating the firmware? Is that just for being able to use the latest map?
5. How good is the new map (v815)? Do we really need it?
