Can You Declare My Order Value To Be Lower Than US$20 To Help With Import Taxes?

We always try to help our customers as much as we can, but we cannot offer formal guidance on import taxes. Please check with your country’s customs for up-to-date regulations. While it is true that lower declaration values can help you with import taxes, it’s not always feasible to declare lower values, especially lower than US$50. This may lead to you losing your package or paying a high tax as a penalty.

In short, the answer is, if we can help, we will, but to a sensible, feasible degree. You can get a lot more information on this matter by researching our knowledgebase article about import taxes.

Where can I download free GPS software and maps?

Use your favorite bit torrent search engine to find GPS software and maps. Or use google. Try “[insert name of GPS software manufacturer here], rapidshare, megaupload”.

Once I have the GPS software and maps, how do I install it into this device?

Copy the software and maps onto an SD card. Insert it into the SD card slot. From the main menu go to SETTINGS. The first thing you will see are the settings for the GPS path. The GPS path is where the device looks for the GPS software. Click on the browse button (magnifying glass) and it will allow you to browse your SD card. Look for a file that looks like this: nameofGPSsoftwaremaker.exe where the first part of the file before the dot is the name of the software maker, and the part after the dot signifies that it is an executable file.

How do I pair my phone to this GPS navigator?

Easy. From the main menu, click on the Bluetooth icon. Once in the Bluetooth menu, click on the PAIRING icon. Then from your cellphone search for Bluetooth devices. You’re looking for a device called “GPS”. The default pincode is 1234. Now you’re paired and can start making and receiving mobile phone calls from your GPS navigator!

From the main menu click on SETTINGS. Once in the settings menu, you’ll see three icons on the left side: GPS, Common, and Normal. Click on the COMMON icon. Along the bottom of the screen you’ll see the FM icon which stands for FM transmitter. Adjust the frequency to whatever MHz you wish. For example 88.0 fm. That means all audio will be output to your car’s radio on the 88.0 fm channel. Next turn on your car radio and turn the dial to 88.0 fm. Whether you’re playing music, on listening to GPS voice instructions, all audio will now be sent to your car speakers!
