So I got one of those out of a skip at work.

Is there anything interesting I can load to it? Seen a few links to open source projects but a lot seem dead.

Anyone have any experience of these?

Utube battery replacement if needed, goto navitotal.com and they will teach and help you get it working if possible. It is basically a tom tom start.

Saw some Linux builds which add MP3 player and other stuff LOL.

It was just something for me to noodle with at work. or I could give it to my dad, not that he needs one.

Seems to be OK, guy that threw it out said the 2GB wasn't big enough for new maps. Although he was talking about when he went on holiday somewhere abroad, I think.

I might have a try, I don't really like registering for things though :).

Was hoping for an open source build or something to fiddle with. SatNav has probably been wiped out by smart phones in non-commercial driving.
