    Hi, has anybody managed to update their cheapo chinese sat nav, the ones from navibuzz etc.
    mine is a 5" truck one, naviextra web site does'nt recognise it.
    freemapsupdate .com needs a password.
    i have used it for France this summer and it worked ok, probably better than the tom tom.
    But it keeps coming up with maps out of date, so i thought i would try and update it.
    which is supposed to be free....?

    Hi Lou,

    I have a unit from navibuzz, not used it much, but well pleased with it so far,

    Not had occasion to update yet, but if you need a password, the one they supplied me with is . . . .12890780,

    Hope it works ok for you, let us know,

    Best of luck,

    Ke

    cheers Ken, that password worked, i managed to download some zip files, just need to find out how to put them on to the sat nav,

    Don't know whether the files are updates or not,,, i suspect they are the same files/maps which the satnav came with.
    i am waiting for a reply from navbuzz / pnavi as when i bought it they said free lifetime updates, but on the naviextras website it states you can purchase updates?

    thanks for your help:thumb:
    Lou
