K-One GPS

#1 Post by Kamleman » Sat Sep 06, 2008 4:34 pm

Hi Folks,

I was given a brochure for a K-One GPS in Low Yat the other day. The interesting thing about it is that it has an AV input, so you can connect your cars reverse camera, (and I suppose any other stuff) to it.

Also has MP3, fm radio, bluetooth.

But the technical specs on the GPS are pretty vague - "High Performance GPS internal antenna" is about all it says.

Anyone know anything about it? At RM1500 it looks like a good device to mount permanently in the car - provided of course that the GPS works, and the maps are OK. :)

The next question you should ask is "what about map up-date?". That all I'm going to say.

True enough, supposing even that the map is OK to start off with.

Where do these people get their maps from anyway? There seem to be so many new players on the market now, each with a Malaysia/Singapore map - is there a common source that they are using?

There are cases where they illegally use Mapking OS in their PND until Mapking issued a warning.

This is the web site http://www.k-onegps.com/index.htm. Very short on details - technical support seems non-existant?

Better to stick with Garmin. I think they are all OEm from one manufacturer. Just like the Electronic Dictionary Besta, they also have a GPS running on Mapking. THe set includes a dictionary too. (I am not putting down on any other GPS maker here). So to be on the safe side, stick with Garmin, just my opionion.

Yes, I guess you're right.

The nice thing about this device was that it had an AV input, and only cost RM1,500, so was a cheap way of getting something that could live in the car. Would you know of anything similar that Garmin offers? :-?
