keep it quiet, until after I get one. They have mapping by navteq which apparently are the largest GPS mapping concern in the world. it would be good to see some competition for sensis

The onscreen shot they show has the Lane Cove tunnel entrance on it so it must be at most what ... 12 months old?

It does say navteq Version 7. Can anyone shed any light on the currency of that version?

Cheers

I think Navteq, Sensis etc all supply data to GPS firms .. so that does not identify the manufacture .. and if you want to update the map (or even put somethine else on like Europe) you'll need to know that ..

But as someone has already pointed out the cost of a map update could be more than the unit costs ...

Some Aldi stores put tomorrows' items on the shelves tonight (Wed) .. if you have the time to look.

NavTeq don't actually use version numbers they use 08/07 (for Aug 07) map data. Probably a 2007 release and probably includes LCT

Looks like a standard POS chinese box. You get what you pay for

It's Aldis house brand.
Generally they are very good about warranty and parts aren't even worth considering at that price.

that is right.. if it breaks take it in and get a new one.. unlike most others which need sending away to be repaired/replaced
