Hi! I juz got myself a china branded Tablet pc running on Linux and has a built in GPS in it..Sadly, the software comes in chinese and I don't even know how to read it and also the maps it contains are china ones. What kind of software can I use or is there any shop in KL who can solve my problem?thanks

1. Buy and Install Windows XP ~RM500
2. Install Mapsource
3. Install Malsingmaps
4. Buy Noah a pizza
Mappers wanted. Read this to get started. Payment = Recognition = Priceless.

PC or laptops sold in China, Hong Kong or Taiwan all come with chinese version software.
In the 1st place, why purchase a PC with chinese software if you don't know chinese ? :-?
The only way now is to delete all your chinese software and install it with english software. Otherwise, chicken can't talk to duck. :ko:

I could be your Chinese tranlastor if you need. :D I hold in hand an Eroda Tablet with GPS, it is really good with multi languages if you are interested.

I think if you are getting the newer cheap tablets from HK or China, you can actually change the language settings to English because many of them are trying to sell themselves at international markets.
