dvpro, the topic which you linked for me is talking about GPS Bay model E668. The latest advertisement displayed is referring to GPS Bay 3303.

Nevertheless, the discussion does touch on WinCE PN device's compatibility with Malsingmaps Mapking maps, which should be taken into consideration when deciding for a GPS navigation device (especially for use in Malaysia). You may also ask a few of the previous model users on their experiences with the promoting company itself.

I read yesterday's Kosmo / Harian Metro (cant remember which one) about GPS navigation, and one of the locals were interviewed regarding his experience with his GPS, the Altina. [Product Link]
I never heard of this brand before, and it does looks like it uses tomtom's maps.. but I could be mistaken. Anyone ever heard/used this brand before? Just curious.. because I'm assuming this brand would be integrated with the proton's new mpv coming out very soon (as what the advert in the papers showed although the gps is branded 'proton').. it could be using the [A800] or [A860] model.. :-k

it depends on the v-cool tint grade that you have in your car. they have different quality. Best is to borrow a Nuvi and power it up in your car. also compare the accuracy while inside and outside of your car.

yes. but you need to get the re-radiating type. personally, i would prefer the external antenna that connects directly into the gpsr unit. i don't like re-rad antenna.

you can get it off the shelf. no need to DIY.

do a forum search and key in the keywords rerad. you should get some results. I do have the PC-Mobile rerad and i am not impressed. there is another type RA-46

in the vendor's corner there are some sellers.
