I am looking for the best GPS to use in Main Land China, something that you have experience. I do Have 2 but they make me crazy. One say to the left and the other at the same time say to the right when i am driving there. Does anyone knows which is the best and accurate.
Sorry for my english...
Thanks all data is welcome...
Until I drive, I don't need to use a GPS, so sorry to say I have no actual experience with a GPS in China.
However I am told by Garmin that they sell a China map (with spoken directions in English at least, and probably other roman-letter languages too). I'd love to know whether the map is any good -- in case I need a GPS some day.
And I wonder how Garmin handles the written instructions that appear on screen -- in English (not useful since English never appears on road signs), in pinyin (only useful on major roads where pinyin appears beside the Chinese characters), or in Chinese characters themselves?
Garmin updates its maps frequently, which is necessary in China in view of the constant construction of new roads. Just make sure that lifetime updates are included in the purchase price; individual updates cost almost $100 for North America maps, and presumably a similar amount for China maps.
I recently used the Garmin GPS in Canada, and it was superb!
I don't know much about GPS but we have great OVI maps with voice navigation on our phones and there is an option of English or Chinese.
Thanks for the tip. I am sure it will be useful to many who drive in Zhuhai and outside of it. :o)
