So I was able to copy the Veer's att nav package to my Pre3, it loads, no errors though I declined the end user agreement because I think it might automatically add navigation to my account(I think there is a grace period)

On the veer, connect to it with novaterm
run these commands
then put your veer in usb mode and copy the attnav.tgz to your computer
tar czvf /media/internal/attnav.tgz -T /usr/lib/ipkg/info/com.telenav.attnavigation.list
then put your pre3 in usb mode and copy the attnav.tgz to your pre3
then bring the pre3 out of usb mode and connect to it in novaterm and run these
You won't be able to remount /var as ro because I believe of the /var/log mount
mount / -o remount,rw
mount /var -o remount,rw
tar zxvf /media/internal/attnav.tgz
mount / -o remount,ro
point. At this point whenever I do this sort of app migration I always reboot the
device just in case something is cached by the system.
When the system comes up you'll see the att navigator icon
I've done this same process for many other apps in order to share them across my 4 webos phones, I'd much rather have a way to re-create the package (I had a thread about that a while back with no takers), since ipkg I believe is based on debian's package format (debian has a dpkg-repack to reconstruct packages that are installed), but I have not found any tools like that for ipkg, which is surprising to me since I was using ipkg back in 2004 on my sharp Zaurus, it's not a new tool.
put a couple screenshots here
