this is better than google maps which will suck your wallet dry of data charges.

I tried a version of papago x5 on mine, it wouldn't start. I read somewhere it doesn't work on 1.6, only 1.5 ... probably due to some native code it bundles with. will try on a friend's 1.5.

but if it can work, especially with MFM maps, I don't mine paying for this. Anyone know how much it costs?

dont know. no one knows if its going to work on adroid 1.5 or 2.0.
probably if they launch they might make for both ?

and yea i hope they come bundle with free map.

cost wise no one oso know. hope is cheaper than garmin mobile lor. hopefully between RM 100 or so.

i've bought this PapaGo X5 weeks ago and really wow~!

yes, its already released and price NTD1980 if converted to RM280+ (with Maps) , of course you may also download MFM Maps.

the problem is you will have to go through taiwan purchase system with chinese language. rclxub.gif rclxub.gif

i will try to put up some reviews..

To those who have high levels of patience, I suggest we wait for Eclaire first..I'm suspecting the point-to-point navigation on GMaps will be out for Malaysia too..Best of all, it will be free (except the data charges of course), but as far as I played my GMaps, it doesnt really use data intensively..

I will give see if I got some extra cash to buy the maps too..Will write the review too if I do.. biggrin.gif

lol..you're relying on a taiwanese company who doesn't even have an english site to guide you through Malaysian roads..And comparing it with a company which has made a breakthrough application (Google Earth + Google Maps) and has the most maps any community could ever have..

Personal preferences still I guess..To me, if its Google, it never turns me down..So I'll trust GMaps more than a community app..Besides, Google will do their homework of course - and we all know that smile.gif

No hard feelings bro..Just personal preference (and opinion) smile.gif

feel free to click on my signature.
MFM has the most updated poi's and also reliable ones.

MFM has been around for slightly more than a year. started making maps for papago not too long ago, cant recall when. for a good gps unit to work well, the map has to be constantly updated, routing constantly updated and poi's constantly updated.

Totally free usage are some of the things we always look forward to. Google maps consists of data charges while pure gpsr's believe in being totally FREE, especially from data charges.

Every week, there are roads that change, roads that turn into 1 way street. these are turn restrictions. satellite imagery from googlemaps can only be done once in a while as the cost is high. but not from community maps. directions are corrected almost everyday, feedback and especially points of interests. shops close and move every single day, new shops sprout out as new highways and roads and housing areas as well.

community maps will always be the best source and application.

im just curious to ask, which GPS system can detect Police Speed Roadblock Alert?? some ppl said the latest Garmin could do the detection few miles before you reach the speed scan.

detect as in real time? i doubt it can, those alert are come with the map (MFM, MSM) which mark some regular speed trap or police roadblock spot only. definitely not as like what u said that like satellite detected a roadblock ahead of you and sending you a warn.

all these years owning pda phones, i've used gmaps (turn by turn), sygic, tomtom, ndrive, iGo, garmin & mapking. only mapking with mfm & malsing maps gives best accuracy & updates. till today, although using iphone 3gs now, i miss the days using mapking+mfm+malsing. it'll never get u lost!

juz my 2cents worth....

my recent xperience with garmin is simply horrible...directing me into s'pore for a u-turn to get to danga bay, jb!! the UI to re-route is simply confusing & tedious.

i look fwd to getting papago+mfm once my htc hero arrives this weekend...

i can attest to that...i tried speeding pass an alerted spot by garmin in which i confidently knows there ain't any speedcams. true enuf, tak kena saman pun...imo, it's another sales pitch to try 'differentiate' themselves lo...
