wow lucky i come across this thread...just disabled my AGPS. and the gps lock in just as fast without the AGPS.

anyone used both full and lite version of mfm map? any difference in lag? current we canot search by postal code...only by road name?

also, when getting the new full map and installing using mapsource, do u guys choose "Map Display Customisation" to be

(i) Full
(ii) Custom POI only
(iii) none.

For those who duno what i'm talking about, refer here

i chose option (ii) and just wondering what's the difference other than the road display is different. any effect on the lag?

and did u guys experience hang when u browse map? after scrolling for awhile...the programme just hang. happens every single time i try it.

basically, when choosing an option there, it is just some minor tweaking.. during installation, when you select your option there, just move your mouse there, and it will tell you which models are surpose to use which option.

For 5800, which uses GMXT, option (ii) will be best. Although i choose Road POI as well.
The other options are for Nuvi, 70csx (or something like that) and so on..

pretty new to gps stuff and has been reading up a lot recently.

so i guess the full and lite version no difference? so i would rather use full version...have yet to test it out yet cos was using msm previously.

Welcome to the club my friend!!! :peace: :peace: :peace:




yaya.. thank bro... but my phone hav a prob ley... =P~ =P~ =P~

what problem are you experiancing? if hang, try NOT to use it in landscape mode.. it will crash.
if lag, try removing all custom POI and topography. the 5800 does not have a dedicated graphics 'chip', unlike the N95.. thus the slow re-draw/refresh rate..

i miss my N95.. much better when it comes to graphics handling.. but 5800 LOOKS much better.. sigh..

\:D/ Actually, After a few tries with the GMXT on N5800, I begin to like it. In fact it has more powerful features than my dedicated GPS Zumo 550. The only drawback is the power consumption. For short distances it is fun to use. But for long trips in the car, you have to connect it to the car charger. :peace:

You can aslo use the N5800GMXT on a bike. To do so you will need special mounts and a waterproof casing with flexible screen cover for the touch screen.
below are pictures and links where you can purchase them.
