    Default new igo map showing old speed mph on gps??

    I have recently got a 7" gps called gps 84h-3 which loads up at the starts up with mediatek. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    the maps were outdated 2012 infact, but I have loaded some igo 2014 maps, but when using it again today I have noticed that certain places such as clifton boulevard in nottingham which is the a52 road where the speed limit changes from 40mph to 50mph which was changed years ago my gps is still showing 40mph on it. I have deleted the old uk maps out and replaced with new 2014 so why is this still showing 40mph? surely if the maps was not installed properly my sat nav would not be able to pick up the map right?

    Also I have noticed these chinese gps's are loaded with different software such as igo,navtek etc is there anychance i can flash mine with better software? And how do i get tomtom maps to work with this gps? Any help much appreciated.

    Sorry if this is posted in the wrong section of the forum?

    If maps shows old speed limits, you should ask maps creators for that. That is their mistake. Gps device have a job to locate and show where you are.
    Chinese navigators are usually or without any software or with lot of. You can delete anything you want, but you must have some knowledge about it. Conect it on computer, look the structure of files, backup/delete/modify, etc...
    It is WinCE based so, you can put Igo/Primo wor WinCE and latest TomTom maps for Primo, but, that is not true TomTom software like on TT devices, and you can never have TT on any WinCE device.
    Btw, this is very cheap PNA Hope it will serve you well...
