    Thanks that is so cool! Can't wait to get my unit. Just wondering, what if you wanted to update the pre loaded map? How would you do it? I live in the south area and would like to contribute in updating the map, also in the Mandaluyong area.

    Thanks for all your help!

    Has anybody tried this? [SIZE=1](not necessarily in the Phils.)[/SIZE]



    It's a PlayStation Portable (PSP), with a PSP-290 GPS receiver and MapThis free navigation software using Google maps.

    MapThis:

    I see PSP-290's selling around the same price you'd pay for a decent GPS receiver [SIZE=1](43 in the UK),[/SIZE][SIZE=2] and there are other GPS receivers supported by MapThis. If you already have a PSP and your location has good details on Google maps, it's a cheap satnav system. [/SIZE]

    I have this PSP-290 (gps unit) and my homebrew is mapthis and to download the maps I use GMDL. The philippines still doesn't have a street level map available for the PSP (from google maps, yahoo maps, microsoft maps). I only tested this to and from work which is within qc area (bulacan-panay ave). It works great. The length of position acquisition of the gps unit takes around 1-2 minutes (on open sky). I don't know whether the gps unit or the map is inaccurate because roosevelt ave and NLEX is way off.

    It's mostly the (Google) map, so it's not really worth to use it on Philippine roads for now.

    Do you have version 5 with the voice prompts? I'd like to try it ... If only because of the PSP's screen - which is very good.

    I'm using version 0.5.20. It does have voice prompt like speed warning. I still haven't tried the turn by turn voice prompts because i don't know how and probably, we don't have geodata/route for the philippines (for PSP) yet. Is there a way to download the map from openstreetmap.org instead of google maps, ms virtual earth, etc.?

    Alam ko na kung pano magdownload ng maps sa openstreetmap.org, meron kasi dun street level ng quezon city at some part ng manila, much better sa google at microsoft. I'll test this and i'll try to give some feedbacks later

    Quick question:
    If I load the Philippine map into my Nuvi 660, will it erase my original map (North America)? Just want to know if I can seemlessly use it whenever I am in Manila or here in the US?

    TIA

    For my 250w both are loaded. Then using settings you can choose what map to use

    To be safe, load the Philippine map on an SD card via card reader. Don't hook up the Nuvi via USB to your computer. One wrong move and you'll lose the factory-installed US maps.....
