i have succesfully install mapking G10 with malaysia map. when i run it, it say "GPS is now functionning" but i am no where in the map coz GPS showing i am in UK.

my quetions is, if let say i am now in Ipoh and would like to go to Jalan Pengkalan 8,

i use search, scroll down perak and type Pengkalan.....and it show my road....if i click "GO" commnad, will it automacaily route me like tomtom ?

i am confuse when to use the start and end function ? why do we need start because the gps will locate our current location ?

i play arond with Mapking map, it is very details and show the road i wan to search.

Mapking's start and end function as you can estimate your time and distance from different start point to destination. example: You have to meet up with few customer today, and they are different places, you can estimate your time and distance from start to 1st customer, then 1st customer place to 2nd customer place and so on...all before you start your car. actually there is feature in mapking to plan all the destination you will go, and plan a shortest route for you. There are few ways to search, but the search feature in mapking is easy, you can even search by key word, if you don't know which state or city the place you wanted to go .

No, clicking "Go" will only show that location on the map.

"Start" location can be your GPS location or other places, so that you can plan your route before actually being there. After you've selected "Start" and "Destination" locations, click "Routing" to calculate. You can also simulate the routing by clicking "Simulation".

Thanks for your sharing. i am not actually use it yet coz still in kl. let me give a senario.

1. i am now in Ipoh, Jalan Pengkalan 9
2. i wan to go to KL, Jln 13/6, 46200 PJ

step 1. open mapking, and gps will show my current location, Jalan Pengkalan 9
step 2. click on serach button, select KL, and type 13/6, and click "Go", will show the location of Jln 13/6, 46200 PJ, off Jln University.

Question 1. do i need to set start point for (1) and end point for (2) ?

Question 2. which button shold i click when i start driving ?

Question 3. Must i use start and end point evertime from A to B ?+

I am thinking it would function like tomtom or garmin.

I woudl appreciate any comment

thanks

btw i bought the GPS bluettoh for £40 (about RM 300) which is cheaper than in Malaysia. is it ture ?

Actually when you want to use in navigating mode, click GPS after opening Mapking.

Answer 1: You just have to click screen > Destination, which will bring you to a page where you use Find, Favorites or Recent to select your destination.

Answer 2: At the same page, once you click the location as Destination, Mapking will calculate the route and bring you back to GPS navigating mode.

Answer 3: If using in navigating mode, Start location should always be GPS (actually you don't have to select GPS as Start because it is default location). If you have more than 1 destination, in navigating mode, click screen > Destination > Routing which will bring you to the Route page, you can add more destinations at the Destination box. You can also rearrange any destinations to suit your needs. After finishing, click Routing > OK. This will bring you back to navigating mode.

BTW, I'm using Mapking G10.

Dear dvpro

thanks for your answer.

for your Answer 3, i can just ignore the STart beacuse GPS is my start point. so which ever place i wan to go, i just select as "End". and i can start driving ?

sorry for being so stupid because i have not tried it yet so i am just famliarising myself. 3 more days to go..i am using G10 too. is it better to use mapking 2007 ?

Actually the steps above are used when you are already in GPS navigating mode.

If you start from map view mode, and if you can find your destination (by scrolling the map), just select a location and "Add as End", click GPS, it'll bring you to the GPS navigating mode with the route ready.

If you need to find a destination by name, click the Find icon (magnifying glass). At the Find page, select finding method and enter the destination name. When you've found your destination, click and hold on the name > Add as End > OK. This will bring you to the map view page. Click GPS and you're ready to navigate.

Is it the most current / newest trial version from the Mapking website? If not, get the newest version ..
