5.Can GPsmile 61E support to receive the RS-232 signal?

Currently, we only two models(GPSmile 62G / 61E) can support to receive the URAR signal by mini-USB interface port. And it worked for receiving TMC signal when you had used external TMC receiving module by mini-USB interface, then your navigation softwawre should decode the TMC message protocol.

If you really need to use with RS-232 interface, it extra need to be made the converting cable from mini-USB(URAT) to DB9(RS-232) interface, then it should be compatible with our PND.

7. I bought 61E in Singapore but where can I download or update the map files?
Holux just belong to manufacturing GPS receiver of expert and provide technical and repair service for hardware device. And Holux sell these GPS hardware devices to abroad distributor of customer.

Then the local distributor will take responsible to decide which kind of map navigation be used and attached the backup CD of map navigation into the package.

Therefore we (Holux) really don’t have any map software reference or development skill.

But I think you may contact our local distributor in Singapore for support directly, they could help you. Sorry to make you inconvenience!

Q & A  (Chinese)

3.請問GPsmile 61E可使用到多大的記憶卡?

而GPSmile 61E可以支援Micro-SD card最大容量8GB(可支援SDHC的規格);而由於目前SD card的廠牌眾多,我們無法

電話: 03-6687000轉1281或1282

6. 請問,61E之多媒體功能使用時,影片撥放為何會有延遲lag的情形?

目前WMV有分3種profile格式 (Simple / Main / Advanced),而62G記憶體DDR RAM 目前只有128MB;當執行WMV的檔案屬simple profile時,所耗費的記憶體處理量,仍夠負荷播放。但到main profile的等級(甚至Advanced以上)時,其播放運算處理之記憶體便有不足的情形;故會有機會出現播放不順暢與lag的情形。



另外也有相關論壇再介紹說明影音轉檔的建議,可參閱該File:PDA看高畫質AVI檔- Mobile01 討論群組.pdf說明檔。

11.請問GPsmile 61E是否可支援接收RS-232訊號輸入?

目前有兩款機型(GPSmile 62G / 61E),確實是有支援URAR訊號輸入至導航機裡。而其應用就是用來做TMC的訊號接收,當以TMC的模組接收外接,其訊號輸入介面為mini-USB(URAT訊號)接頭;使PAPAGO的軟體會解讀該訊號之資訊。

此部分可參閱該File:Nav 62G & 61E + RS232 Y cable working diagram.pdf示意圖說明檔!


12. 請問,61E到PAPAGO網站註冊,為何沒有此機型的型號可註冊,請問該如何註冊又該下載何種版本的圖資?
