If the device cannot be loaded Malaysia map then it would be a totally wasted :cry:

Bro Richard, sad to say you have to go back to manufacturer for assistance in loading maps or updates.

This forum is bias towards Garmin and Papago hardware and maps. Our maps will not work with your China GPS. :(

it is the map got speed alert and roadblock..??
TQ....



I'm also a newbie, as I know it will inform u of speed trap zones which are identified by mappers. but road blocks... I don't think so.... GPS is good... but it's not THAT good ahhahahaha! maybe one day apple will come up with some kind of iGPS that can do that :peace:


sorry ar... I was wrong... it also identifies roadblocks :thumbsup:

I decided to go for Garmin 255W , during my test run over the weekend it tells me when there's police roadblock site as well as speed camera sites.
