SOLVED! See post 8.
I've used iGO 8.3.2 for several months. It's not the most stable, but I still like using it. However, a few days ago suddenly it will no longer load!
I was literally playing with iGO in bed looking at some POIs I'd imported and it crashed. Since then, it gets stuck on the "Starting..." status when launching. If I reset the prefs, it gets stuck after accepting the EULA, and if I re-launch, still stuck on "Starting..."
I've wiped out the entire install, only installed the very basics required (a map, a voice, NO pois, NO custom anything) and it still gets stuck. Checked AGPS, don't use HTC Home, those are two problems with iGO I've found researching this problem. iGO8 doesn't seem to have any registry except a basic one in HKLM which I also tried wiping out.
I'm not sure what else to try.. My only other guess is a corrupted contact, so I've tried disable_outlookpoi=1 in the sys.txt, but not sure that makes any difference, and I have no real reason to think a contact is corrupt.
I'm really at a loss. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I'm pondering trying iGO8 8.0, but not sure I still have it anywhere.
For giggles, I turned AGPS on and launched it. It gets stuck at the POI Manager with it on. Turned it back off, stuck at Starting. Yay.
