    Ano yung OSM, sir? How do you switch maps? Thru the renaming method (gmapsupp.img)?

    edit: after a quick google search, i found OpenStreetMap (OSM)

    Hmmm... I wonder if OSM and roadguide.ph are open to the idea of importing from each other's maps? (or is it sacrilege for them? ) I was surprised to find that OSM seems to have more detail.

    The equivalent, sir. I have the DEMO map, and I viewed it on MAPSOURCE.

    I mean, even in the provinces, particularly Pampanga.

    ^ My dad has that and regretted buying it. It sometimes inexplicably recalculates every couple of seconds. Also, it would often get lost or would show you driving at least several meters away from the highway.. on a clear day without obstructions to the sky!

    I think testronix' videos taken during his recent trip to La Union would summarize what we similarly observed with the A800.

    I do hope that accu-map update their software and map soon.

    no regret in buying it since complete na ang map of manila and nearby provinces .... namili din ako between garmin and avt nung nag demo ang tropa im impress with avt .... and yes meron din naman error lalo na pag malalayong province na pupuntahan mo but within metro manila ,tagaytay,baguio at yung puntahan pang torista its accurate and it has more than 12,000 POI......

    I got tempted to buy a Xenon GPS NAV-350, but realized I will get more peace of mind if I go for a branded one. Fortunately, my officemate was in Canada at the time and I coerced him to buy one for me.

    Now I'm enjoying my Nuvi 255W. :clap:
