hopefully my question as i describes here are appropriate in this post.

can i know any application which may help me to create custom alerts or info as like the GPI Creator ?
i am too poor to get the applicationas it costs USD 500 :( its way too expansive.

or any programmers here which may help me to describe the strings ? if there are, i could help u guys to create the string creator for the application.

thankx

Don't worry. Most everyone started as a newbie... I think your present firmware should support the current maps. Why don't you try and see for yourself?
