Plug & Play. As I mentioned, you need to have a clear sight of the sky in order for the GPS unit to sniff out the radio signals. Within the city itself, it is very dificult to lock on to signals due to the close proximity of the tall buildings

I was in Shanghai a few months back ( Shanghai ). Also Plug & Play. No problems using my Nuvi there.

Don't know why it just doesn't get any signal at all. :(

it's ok. I'll try again if I've got chance to go over again.. hehe
I did notice that if the weather was hazy with lots of clouds, GPS lock on takes longer. This is my observation.

Bro's..

Heard my nick mentioned, so.... Also reference to the HK map..

This map is not locked, and COULD be useful to visitors to HK. The HK Island portion of the map is VERY accurate - even for navigation. The mainland portion is not quite so accurate...

So... for them that wants it... Hong Kong..

I've added SilverBeauty's POIs to the map and re-processed.

More POI's, corrections, tracks, etc are always welcome...

Bro rotweiler,

Thanks for the HK maps. Did no navigation there but was helpful when trying to get back to my hotel. Only problem is the signal lost when entering highrise area... it's a constant problem in Hong Kong. Collected some POIs but most are out of place due to environmental factors..I guess. Only managed to get four good POIs. Hence, just this little contribution to show my appreciation.
