I was happily surprised to find so much information about these things here, with Aussie based people talking about them.
I bought one of the boxes and it is my first experience with any GPS. On first impressions I am very happy with it.
800 x 480 pixels. The Total Memory states 131072KB so I assume it is a 128MB model.
As with all firmware based equipment I like to try and keep it up to date and tweaked for best usage.
It comes with iGO 8 (220.127.116.11621 Mar 2009) and I have installed the Aussie maps onto it (Primo Australia Map Sensis R17 12 Aug 2010) from fixmygps.
The device reports that it has:-
SW Vers: V3.6.E60.12.22
OEM Info: YFAtlas4
Platform ID: 5955414E46454E47
Device ID: 0000000000000000
The GPS itself seems fairly slow to confirm the satellites (~2 mins).
My questions to the knowledgeable people here are:
What firmware would you recommend running?
What iGO 8 version should I be running?
Is there a better app for playing music and/or video than the installed?
Are there some better apps I can install? (I know very open ended question.)
Can some of the installed apps (like games) be removed? From the screen or removed all together?
Is there anyway to move the icons around on the main screen and have them stay there?
Edit: I forgot to ask: What is the best way to back this thing up before I start stuffing with it.
Thanks for your help.
