    Default My new ride Vitz 2006, fresh import

    Asalam-o-Alikum warahmatullah,

    I was planning to upgrate my Cultus Vxli 2008 for last three months. There was a big tie between Toyota vitz and Suzuki Swift. Both rides are awesome, but I had to pick one. So, in the end I picked Toyota Vitz. The main reason to pick it was the lack of auto transmission in Suzuki Swift.

    Second tie was in between 1.3L and 1.0L versions. Though 1.0 is the best if one wants to save fuel and taxes but I required power too. So I opted for 1.3 version.

    I will use this thread to keep you all updated about the ride inshAllah.

    10) Driving to Naran.


    ================================================== ====

    Major car part failures

    Thats the card I received from Pakistan GPS Maps.

    My new ride Vitz 2006 Fresh import -380086

    The card was with a Device ID and Navitel License Key. I registered the map online on their website. Afterwards I inserted the card in Map SD card area on right bottom corner of rockmars unit as shown in the figure.

    My new ride Vitz 2006 Fresh import -380088

    Afterwards the GPS was activated.

    It is always a fun to use GPS. That is the location where I have put the card. And now the maps are working with no issue.

    Here's a sample test run from the GPS navigation. The GPS spotting is almost perfect. It gave accurate commands to turn right and then left. Just forgive the video quality as I was driving and making the video at the same time. You can see the reflection of the camera. My index finger is raised as I was avoiding the start/stop button of my Nokia N95.

    No Sir. This navigation system is based on GPS coordinates received from GPS satellite which constantly throw GPS coordinates around the world. Any GPS enabled device can pick those signals to know it's location free all across the world. Only one has to buy the device and the maps of that location. There are 24 GPS satellites revolving around the earth as shown in this figure:

    AoA,

    bro this is a GPS antenna, not a GPS device. You require a GPS enabled device, for example a navigation enabled DVD player as installed in my ride. If you do not have it, you can also install in on your mobile if GPS is supported on it. Check this website:

    GPSMAP.COM.PK

    you can get the card for your mobile.

    Brother it has no use until you do not get GPS enabled device to connect it with. Thats what I know Better ask few others too to confirm. But do not dispose it. You can use it later.
