265 is really cheap in Australia. After conversion it is a shade below RM1000. If you have friends in Australia or going there - you can consider. Its difficult to find the handhelds though. Nuvis u can find anywhere. Dont forget to pay additional AUD15.00 for international warranty.


Even in New Zealand also cheap... http://search.dse.co.nz/search?w=garmin ... a87f3b070b

NZD1 = RM1.9

Anyone want one? :$gone:

Cheers

.. it has!

"It can even record a track log of your journey."

"Track Log Feature
Records a track log of your movements (approximately 4 days of normal travel) which can be viewed on screen (as a line) and can be downloaded to computer. To download to computer, you will require a Garmin Mapsource product, minimally Trip and Waypoint Manager. The track log includes time, direction, distance, speed (at average 20 second intervals), and can output as a text or CSV file suitable for further analysis."

Is a trip log - that log your trip where ever you goes and it doesn't come with 1sec log.

If really want a track log it has to be in 1sec log, this is much prefer by most of our mappers

Cheers!

Yes it do have, but not good enough for making a map. Not one second track. I've been using this for the past month. Great unit. Bought for NZD422 (RM850).

handheld ? GPSmap 60CSx ? It will never charged when u use usb or external power supply !
For nuvi series around 4 hours will be enough ... when charging u will never know ...
just eject the usb and the battery meter will appear on the top right hand corner !

:D

Charging is best achieved with a home outlet i.e. when you are back home and not using anymore once out of the car.

Connect to usb and switch off the unit and it goes into default *Going into charging mode* to charge up and when its FULLY charged, within 2,5 hours in my Nuvi650 case, it stays fully charged until I return & unplug it and replug it back on the holder in the car. Its pointless to try charging in the car as it is meant to be utilized when you are on the roads and the unit is serving its purpose. Always try to have it 100% charged B4 using it in yr car so that you have maximum power available as standby should you use it outside or when leaving the car for pedestrian mode usage.
