    * DBanker - Best to just try adding a small video file on the SD card. Try converting a small video file into different formats (.AVI, .MP4, etc.) and see if it'll work on your GPS device. WinAVI Video Converter is a good software for conversions, and it's free. Just don't forget to make a backup copy of your original SD card. And If the file won't fit on the SD card (because of capacity), try another SD card.

    It'll most probably work ... if you use the right video format.

    * jbserbael - You're welcome. But keep your ears open ... Some people may have a different opinion on the iPhone's GPS.

    In a matter of few months, Google has improved its Philippines map.
    Check out:http://www.google.com/mapmaker

    Even includes buildings, gasoline stations, etc.

    I'm sure it will get better in the few months.... something to look out for.

    Naghahanap din ako ng reliable GPS na madali sundin yung map gaya ng sa 3 series ng BMW. Meron ba map from Lagun - Metro Manila - Pangasinan?

    AFAIK pwede yung freewebs Philippine map diyan sa StreetPilot 7200. I've browsed the available maps for the StreetPilot 7200 and it also uses Garmin City Navigator NT maps ... the same type of map for Garmin Nuvi's that also use the freewebs Philippine map.

    I'm not familiar with the Pioneer AVH(?)-P6850. If it doesn't have an accessory like a GPS module then maybe you can just use a small portable GPS with a Video-Line output and feed it to the P6850's Video-In ... if all you're after is a bigger GPS screen.

    Di ba ang GPS sa BMW-Philippines eh Garmin Nuvi din? I remember a thread somewhere here in tsikot announcing that. And among the different Garmin Nuvi models, the basic functions and layout are all the same ... even that of Garmin Mobile XT that runs on phones or PDA's.

    So you really don't have to look further.

    Unless you're talking about the BMW Business/Professional Navigation Systems ... which can easily cost in the UK as much as an older car (like an E36) - 1.5k to 2k as an option for new cars but much much more expensive as a retrofit.

    Nokia 6110 Navigator has a pretty good GPS system but map is limited to Metro Manila up to just past Susana Heights on the south bound area.

    Other Philippine maps can be added but limited to Davao, Boracay, and Cebu so far.
