Navman iCN 520 by Floyd
Hi Folks, I have a Navman iCN520 and I've seen hacks to stop it starting the GPS software at startup and allow the PDA functionality to be used. Has anyone tried this? Many Thanks, Floyd

nio map V2 on miomap A201 great--but something i don't like by SiGreen10
miomap V2, it has advantages like input by geographic coordinates, and off road map capability but one thing really bugs me .. why oh why did they take away on the V2 version the "view route by turn by turn listing", with an ability to easily remove roads sections so it could tweak the planned route as before, its really difficult to see what the route is its planned, you have to follow it by...

Mio 168 / AA Navigator by JC
First post so greetings from NI. Brother has a Mio 168 with AA Navigator (Navtech powered I think?) installed on it. Was provided by his work as he travels a lot within Northern Ireland. The system as originally supplied came with GB&I maps, POI etc but apparently it had a few bugs and before he received his it was provided with Ireland only and no POI's. However in the box there's three...

GPS Newbie Question by Mike Saunders
I have a Garmin GPSmap 60cs, with the Position Format set to British Grid, and the Map Datum set to Ord Srvy GB. For the position of my house, the Grid Ref indicated on the GPS is spot on. However, I live on a main A-road and on the GPS base map, the road is shown as being 0.4 miles way. Also if I import a route (straight down the A-road) from mapping software, the route is also offset...

Need new GPS receiver for my Mobile by aardvark5
Some git has knicked my Tom Tom Mobile bluetooth receiver out of my car and I need a new one. Does anybody know a cheaper alternative to the Tom Tom's receiver that will work in England with no problems. My phone is a Nokia 6630 if that makes any difference. Thanks

Structure of TomTom voice .chk files by Oenone
I don't know if this is the appropriate place to ask, so here goes anyway. :) Does anyone know of a document which will detail the internal structure of ..chk files, as used by the TomTom devices for their voices? I can see that it's a table of contents of some description followed by the raw .ogg files that form the spoken instructions, but haven't yet figured out exactly what goes in the...

Garmin i3 waypoints by John Bean
Today I bought an i3 (from Argos, 159) and I'm pleased with it after a bad first experience. I also have a eTrex Venture that I use for walking and for simple road navigation in conjuncion with Fugawi UK mapping. So to the question: I can define "waypoints" on the i3 only by marking the current location - which automatically saves it as a "favourite". Is there any way I can import the waypoints...

Tom Tom Go 300 or 500 or something else? by The Invisible Man
Newbie here so if there is a faq or somewhere better to post this please let me know I have a CoPilot 6. My wife reckons this looks a bit complicated. Mainly because I often want to go a certain way and on a 400 mile trip this means putting in a few waypoints and checking which way CoPilot intends taking us. Although my wife is PC literate she wants something she just has to put an...

Medion GPS cheap in Halfords - but is mine OK? by Jonathan
I bought a Medion PNA 250 (aka MD96800) in Aldi when it dropped from 229 to 199. Seems fine to me. However, in Halfords, I've just seen th PNA 100 for 200 and the PNA 175 for 175, which are both half price. Question is: Are they better/the same models (the pna100 seems to be portrait screen, rather than widescreen of the others), and should I be visiting Aldi for refund?!? On the medion...

Mio Update by Retired
I've just got my Mio update, accompanied by a letter apologising for the delay which was due to Mio's "uncompromising approach to testing and simulation" The letter tells the recipient to follow the steps described in the enclosed instruction sheet. Unfortunately their uncompromising quality assurance failed to include the letter! - I wonder if anyone got it?

Garmin StreetPilot maps by Mike Lane
I've been playing around with the Garmin SP2610 and also the i3 which I bought for a relative. I have just noticed that the i3 comes preloaded with City Navigator V8 maps for the UK, whereas the latest maps for the 2610 are City Navigator V7. I wonder why Garmin can't make V8 maps available for all their units? -- Mike Lane (UK North Yorkshire)
