Ada la .... here is a "youtube" video that describes all the I/O ports ... a picture tells a thousand words :thumbsup:

well, the big and high resolution touch screen become new standard. however, how's the track accuracy? have any one lucky enough to own a Montana, 60 or 62, 76 or 78? which can do the comparison?

i'm look forward to get one for myself in the future, but the track accuracy is quite important for me as i might have the tracks. :mrgreen:

Hopefully the government will budget up the gps device on the next general budget 2012, since all vehicles were now using car gps anywhere. Hehe. :D
