trendmobile get the nuvi from eastgear?? what kind of customer service is that since tm provide local warranty??

dun worry...you only lost jerome donor maps.......pm jerome with your unit id see whether is he willing to help you out as jerome would have your unit id since TM "donate" for you .......come to worst just donate again if jerome dun want to help and you wanted his map badly.......but i would not donate if jerome have the same attitude as TM....the free map from msm is good enough................
if i'm not wrong should be eastgear got it from trendmobile cause i bought it from eastgear and they gave me a form to fill up for the jerome map and on top stated as trend mobile

if EG get from TM, then why TM ask him to go to EG??
more likely TM has agreement with jerome for his donor maps, hence EG tagged along TM for jerome maps.....

Is there a plastic casing for the 200w? similar to those PDA plastic protective casing we see at sim lim..

I'm interested to mount my 200w on my bike handle bar clamp using velcro or wadever i can think of..

I know it is not waterproof,but i won't be riding in the rain anyway..

Any tips to mount the 200w onto a bike ??

Cheers! :thumbsup:
I have a 200W for the car, and a Legend C for my bike but I'm tempted to mount my 200W on my bike too.
For water-proofing, i have thought of using a customised clear transparent slip-on, to give it some protection till i find shelter for those sudden downpours.

On my bike, i DIY a mount, less than $5, for my Legend C, and i could probably adapt for use with the 200W.

The only disadvantage of using the 200W over is that it doesn't have "track log' function.

:D

Anything I can do to recover the lost files??

Thanks
An update:

I have managed to recover the following files
card_test.tmp
gmapsupp.sum
_MAPSUPP.UNL
Jan_08_GMAPSUPP.IMG
Jan08_GMAPSUPP.IMG
J_GMAPSUPP.IMG
_MAPSUPP.IMG
_AT
HoluxNavi

Which of these should I install on the card?

Really need your help here as I'm in a fix.

Hi bro beebox...
not sure if it's possible..
ask the guy if he can ship to VPOST at Portland, USA?
U need to have a vpost account though.
the shipping charges are also cheaper than wat overseas online shops charges.
