Caught in the road block because of using "illegal" map? This must be joke of 2007.

You don't have to threaten other to comfort yourself what you have purchased worth the value.

hello,

m personally not too concerned with the legality of the maps but more with using the gps set when riding (motorcycle) or driving. often we fiddle with the buttons n take our eyes off the road to check the screen. if stopped by a cop, can i be booked for driving without due care (just like using a handphone when driving) ?. and with that nuvi 200W coloured screen smack right in front of me on the dash board, how to explain ?. #-o

Ha Ha , Funny tho', Part of my hobbies is to use and play the GPS gadgets in the malaysian market, how to comfort myself what I have purchased worth the value, in fact, I do own most of them.

Perhaps this "Correct! Correct! Correct! Correct! Ya! Ya! Ya!" lawyer in Malaysia can explain this matter better.

I brought several units of Garmin back in 4 years ago, much much older than this website, Mysubaruclub's website... and so forth.

In those days, I paid off the custom guy to clear my GPS unit at KLIA since he was clueless about GPS.

Using the GPS on the road was much of a hassle. whenever there is a Police Road Blocks, I need to hide the GPS unit under the glove compartment so as to avoid more problems with the Police.

Ppl if you do not want to repeat what i did some years, my advise is buy GPS unit which comes with legal maps. It may not necessary be Mynavi, it can be any brand

Hide GPS when police road block??? This must be the joke of the century. I've never heard of anybody got caught with GPS. You think the police will screen each and every car for GPS device???

Funny it may seem.

I was once stopped by a cop in PJ. He tried to enquire what I placed on my dash board. I said it is GPS Nuvi 200. He asked whether I have any license for the devise, asking this and that (Local terms: 'carry makan". To cut short the conversation, i have to forked out 20 ringgit. No sure anyone has a similar encounter.

Perhaps, I should send this bill to Malsingmaps or who ever think this ia a joke.

The cop was enquiring your use of your GPS device, not the maps. :nehneh:

Anyway, if you had used Garmin maps, would you send the bill to Garmin then?

Or, the next time a cop pulled you over for using your HP while driving, perhaps you should send the bill to Maxis / Celcom / Digi. =D>
