    This info is not complete and could never be completely trusted.

    ROM 8 GB is complete internal storage capacity:
    ROM (system partition - could be up to 4 GB max) + Internal storage (permanent memory for user programs and data - somewhere over 4 GB)
    For maps and other user data stored in device there is usually abot 4.5 GB left (that's important info)

    RAM 256 MB:
    separate memory for program execution (faster and not permanent) probably is 256 MB

    Definition of ROM (Read Only Memory) is that you can't change it. If maps and "other user data" are store in ROM, it can't be change; therefore worthless for any future uses.
    Definition of RAM (Random Access Memory) can be taken as caching memory, normal memory and sometimes storage memory like SD related. Since 256 MB is way to much for caching (it will be expensive) it could be normal memory or storage memory. But giving the fact that ROM is already used for storing maps, there is no reason why this would be storage memory. So normal memory for program execution is correct.

    I know very well what ROM and RAM are.
    I agree with that theory, and that's why I said that those specs are NOT COMPLETE and NOT RELIABLE.

    What I wrote is what it is in reality.
    256 MB is REAL RAM
    Windows CE, Mobile, etc.... do have 64, 128, 256 or 512 MB of RAM memory.
    From picture (and from specs) it is obviously Windows device (not Android)

    Rest of 8 GB total (declared in specs as ROM) is in two parts: SYSTEM part (acting as real ROM), and USER part which is used as internal storage (you can name it internal SD if you wish, but is not).
    System part only acts as ROM, because user could not change (write to) it.
    With system update, this first (system) part could be changed, so it is nor real ROM but is acting as one.
    Second part is in Widows devices internally often named as "Internal storage" and real SD is named as "External storage"

    Difference between "RAM" and "Internal storage" (which is also kind of RAM) is that real RAM is temporary memory (content is lost with lost of power) and Internal storage is permanent RAM (like SD card)
    RAM is therefore much faster memory than internal storage and is used for program execution.

    Do not want to go any further, it seams like I went too deep anyway.

    No argument from me regarding unreliable info from seller. In many cases (especially from China), sellers of item is posting wrong specs (don't know if it's on purposed or lost in translation) You can see this on ebay, Amazon and other chinese sites. They often confused:
    1. ROM with storage (internal or external accessible) And combining them to make it seem larger.
    2. RAM with storage (making buyer thinking they got large memory) Example, Amazon post of android spec for a tablet of having 1GB RAM, but it just has 512MB and 1GB of internal storage.

    P.S. I said "SD related" since "internal" memory are using the same type of NAND chips for storing information as "external" SD

    Hi. Thank you!

    Those things worked, buy they workfor the iGO software, I need something for the GPS itself, for the hardware.

    I hope the last update is good, this fucker has gone mad in France. It's set to Fast routes, and it takes me here and there on national/departamental roads. Roads which are very slow to travel in France. because you have a lot of villages and alot of roundabouts.
    I know use 70% of the time, the navigation from Trimbre CarCube. It does it's job betterthan my GPS.

    Wow. Please, mr.UNHleaSHD, use [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], grammar rules and common sense.
