GPS Systems

Post Posted: Thu Jan 19, 2006 3:04 am

Does anyone know of a good handheld GPS unit that I can use in Shanghai? I would prefer it used English voice directions and had the capability of generating its own directions. I've been looking online quite a bit recently but I have not found anything sold in the US that has mapping for China. Anyone have any ideas?

Nope!
But if you find out where to find one -please post it! I'm moving to Shanghai & Wuhan in a few weeks. I'll look around here in Vancouver, Canada & let you know if I find anything. I can see where a gadget like that could save my ass too!

I've have not been able to find any with mapping capabilities for China. A few will work in Japan and Europe, but so far I haven't had any luck

There are some handheld GPS systems sold here in China that have maps of Chinese cities, e.g. Shanghai.
Seen them n Hongkong and Guangzhou

Hi Guys, I just bought a GPS with China map and with English menu and speech. Works absolutely fantastic. A lady is selling it at www.cityweekend.com.cn...iew/9225/. Good luck !!

Hey, jsnijders! Can you tell us more about the gps system? Like battery life, user interface, and all the juicy details. How long have you had it? Are you still happy with it?
