    Can't find our Chinese sat nav anywhere .....we last used it a couple of months ago when we went in the motorhome to pick up some car spares for Max's XR 4x4
    Had every drawer in the house out ...it must be somewhere but we can't find it.
    Anyone got one for sale ? before I go on fleabay for one as we are off to Scotland soon.

    As mentioned on other threads, the map updates for the Chinese sat navs no longer contain truck files so can't be trusted. If your local Aldi still has any Garmin Camper 660s for sale you will be better off with one of those.

    Oh wish you had posted this on Sun morning. The car boot sale in Glasgow was selling them for a right bargain of £15 seller showed me one working too. I can check if the seller is back again next week if you dont get one prior to that.
    Or you can borrow mine at Falkirk and drop it off on your route south again.

    If you are there on Sunday and they have them could you get us one and I'll send you the money.

    I believe that they give you the roads suitable for your vehicle and don't send you on roads that are unsuitable ...so far our Chinese unit has been very good here and in France and Belgium but as @denisejoe has said she must have claimed political asylum..either that or she has gone up in a puff of smoke because she isn't anywhere to be found:rofl:

    Sorry to go OT on this.
    Can the Chinese Sat Nav be updated (with or without truck data)
    I had read on here that it couldn't but a post on here suggests that it can albeit without truck data which presumably means 'car' mode.

    yes it can be updated, as a car or as a truck/car.
    latest maps (2015) are downloadable
    or you can download the complete new igo system
