I have not used a GPS previously but was looking at buying one for a trip to Birdsville from Bne. Blow-me-down but I FOUND a Tevion beside the road today and it works. I THINK I know why it might have been thrown away - it is very hard to press the lower left of the screen (and previous owner broke the corner !).
I have found my way round a little of it but can anyone tell me where I can get any useful software for it. (IT has no card in it yet, but I can sort that easily).

Can one put Tomtom software on it? If so, from where, and how?

I have it charging on a USB cable and have downloaded a manual, though it has little re using the Navigation software.
Would it be any good out from Thargomindah, Birdsville Marree etc?

Any comments appreciated. Sorry to be SO ignorant.

Reading up on the Tevion Forum within this site is your first call before asking.

Would it be any good out from Thargomindah, Birdsville Marree etc?...Sorry to be the bringer of sad tidings.

In a nutshell it will be running Route 66. Pretty ordinary GPS engine. And no it will not be much use on outback tracks. No street navigator is; without additional mapping ... and you can't get additional maps for R66.

As for unlocking the unit; check the Tevion threads as Nicko mentioned. :)
