Bro singawon, buy one of those FM transmitter from SLS ( one that plugs direct into the cigarette lighter of car ). Now quite cheap, plug it into the audio out of your Kohjinsha. Set the FM transmitter to a free band. Tune your in-car-audio system to that frequency and viola ....

The FM transmission waveband is ideal only when one is out of range like within the flat open space or in remote areas. It is most disruptive within city limits esp. in densely populated regions with many FM stations and it becomes a nuisance to have that option on. I hardly use this feature that is built-in with my TomTom.

Here's a photo taken when I was comparing the Nuvi 200 and the Nuvi 760. See both gps on the windscreen the same time.

Both seem to respond about the same time whilst navigating around in KL. However, I did notice that the 760 screen refresh is a wee bit slower than the 200.

:cheers:

The only problem with this, you cannot listen to your favorite FM radio channel as it is tuned to your FM transmitter.

If you are routing to a destination, especially to one which you are unfamiliar with, you would not listen to your radio ..... :-'

Well, believe it or not, i still do that, have my CD or radio on a comfortable listening level (not very loudly) and hearing my handheld beeping, PDA or smartphone on GMXT in unfamiliar territory. Does not need to be totally silence and listen to the routing alone. After all you still got visual display. And you are not in unfamiliar territory all the time. Otherwise everytime you are on navigation, either can listen to your GPS or Radio/CD only. To each its own. It can be done :nehneh: :mrgreen:

If on your own...ok lah... but with others... can become absurd and an irritation too plus, when driving albeit alone or like a "taxi" trip.... :evil: how to really enjoy with such distortions and audio disclarities driving one's head to nutz.. and focusing on the road plus incoming Hp caller and while changing lanes for quick exit etc.... not safe meh ... all because of FM (foolish maneuvre) use... #-o

I dun think so i will go for the FM option as the idea of having a good sound system on board is to enhance the pleasure in driving. \:D/

Spending well and on a super sound system on board is terrific but is completely separate to the erratic transmission that the FM passes on... that quality is in itself non controllable and a quality sound system on board gets downplayed by that very instable clarity passed on... :evil:
