Re: Garmin Vista HCX

Hi Bro Ojsi, You mean a 2 GB MicroSD card, right? :mrgreen: Anyway, could it be that to get a lock on while moving, that you are in a tinted car? Sometimes, it takes a really, really long time (especially if you're using Vkool). My Vista locks on faster than my Nuvi, so that's not so bad, relativel...

Re: When is our Big Bro Antyong back...

Just for the sake of asking, is Bro Antyong the only one who can generate unlock codes? Do we have a contingency plan or "acting code generator"?

Holiday can be addictive.... :mrgreen:

Re: When is our Big Bro Antyong back...

Perhaps Bro Antyong has extended his holiday, or maybe back already but need to focus on work (being away for so long).

Anyway, hope he's back safely and look forward to hear some stories of his long journey.... :mrgreen:

Re: Radiating antenna in VCool car

Hi again, Bro PSP, For the external antenna on the roof of the car, do you need to run the wire into the car for power? How to do this? Need to pull through the window? This should help to explain. http://www.mightygps.com/oem/GPSre-radiatingantennakit.pdf 12v power ----> Radiating Antenna (inside ...
