This might be OT. But since i can't find any other thread that talks about
GPS in the Philippines, i'll let it go.
I saw this http://www.newelectronx.com/products.php?cat=46
Is it possible to view Philippine routes and maps through this GPS?
alaric, did you happen to find a new link for the gps?? if so point me in the right direction. i followed the link you gave here, but the company said they are expecting stock soon. so any new leads on this would be helpful. tks bro
alaric, didnt hear from you about this and i kept checking the link tho. went on ahead and got the gps you recommended. the company threw in some free maps and stuff. so just waiting on it to arrive. the price was actually too good to be true for what is included. if you decide to chime in then no worries bro, i got it coming my way and i will update anyone who is interested to know how it works.
just in case anyone else reads and follows this old post like i did then heres a link for reference with more details about what i went to buy. hope it helps yall out.
The GPS I bought for $105.00
Planning a trip to the Phil in late Feb and trying to find a good GPS with local maps - did you ever make a report on the the GPS you mentioned and bought ???
I have a 478 and wondered if I could download the maps from the website mentioned. I also plan to do a bit of " off road" riding.
It's all free here. No registrations, user codes, or sign-ups required.
Of course, anyone would be happy with any donations.
Reviving an old thread...
I've been fiddling around with various maps on a few different GPS devices, a GPSMap76CSx, a StreetPilot 2820, a Montana (all Garmin) and various Android apps like Google Maps, OsmAnd, Oruxmaps and Mapswithme.
For maps I've been using roadguide.ph (both the downloadable demo map and PC-only full version for non-contributors which is Garmin / Basecamp compatible) , Google maps and now the various OSM (Open Street Maps) maps. All of these are basically free.
I've been using all of them as none of them are totally accurate or complete.
I did attempt to become a contributor to roadguide.ph, but the submissions I made seemed to be ignored and then disappeared. However the full version of this this map seems to have the most information.
I'm still playing with OSM. Oruxmaps gives access to various OSM maps (I really like the cycling map as it combines road and topo data), but map management seems way behind OsmAnd.
Google is quite good in the city but a lot of inaccuracies out in the provinces, and caching or downloading of the entire Philippines isn't on the cards, unlike OsmAnd and Roadguide.ph.

I've pretty much worked with the same resources planning my travels in the
philippines and come to mostly the same conclusions. None are really
complete or accurate, so it is best to use a combination of the available
Google is pretty much useless, requiring an active cell connection at all times
to download the map. Doesn't work in the middle of nowhere and can't be
cached on my Android or downloaded to my Garmin so Google is out. In the
city OSM is accurate enough, but all of the map products have some issues in
the provinces-- Either the road/trail does not exist at all on the map or it is
roadguide is good, and seems to have more paths marked in remote areas
than OSM does but comparing them side-by-side reveals that OSM beats
out roadguide in some areas and vice-versa. Really helps to use both when
planning a long trip.
On my android devices I like Oruxmaps, it seems to give the best mix of
features, and adding maps to it is fairly easy. Even the georeferenced
scans of paper topo maps were easy to add. OSMand seems a bit
restrictive and limited in what it can do with maps, so I am curious about
your comment that the map management is better than Orux...
Send me a pm at RoadGuide. Same username there.
