Re: what the highest range of the gps?

i dun think 60CSx and HCx use the barometric to calculate altitude......they require a 3D lock for calculation....... hence any gps can give you altitude reading if the manufacturer include it in the interface....... Here's what garmin says: "Garmin does not publish an accuracy for the barometric p...

Re: Mapsource World Routable Basemap v3

Thats an old map. Garmin confused everyone with WorldMap program ver 3 and the contents of the Map which is ver 2.01. There is no program version theretically, only the install program.

Re: Young lady lost for 19 days in jungle, found

Re: Worried M'sian VIPs snap up anti-spy devices

Do not be misled! You are only "half covered"

Those detector devices only detects wireless signals. If CCTV uses coax - then you are in shit! There are no signals to detect. Do not fall for gimmick like these.

Re: Wireless IP Camera

I assume that you need to have a desktop/notebook to record the images? That would add another RM2K to the overall cost, wouldn't it? Yes 'cos the output is ethernet or wifi. Ther are cheaper non-wifi/ethernet cameras tha uses standard RGB cables or simple RG58/62 type coax. Even for these type cam...
