Wait at the ...

Re: GPS equipment Import Duty - 5% ?

Do you shipped using usps? Last time I shipped using USPS and got tax by custom at KLIA.

I bought quite often from the net (5-6 times already this year). Bought a nuvi, gps mount and some other electronic stuff. All shipped using DHL and Fedex, so far all of them went thru without any problem.

Yes I find the TTS useful and beside can impress your friend with it. :thumbsup:

The bluetooth function for Nuvi 360 is really good compare to my old Aztech bluetooth handfree car kits.

Re: What is the average time for garmin to acquire satellites?

I am using Nuvi 360. It took sometime to load the map when start, about 30 second or so. After that it basically will get fix on the satellite in about 10 second or up to 30s. I previously used holux 236, only got a nuvi 250 last week. On the holux, if I use it everyday I can get a satellite fix wit...
