Hi All, sorry for the second post on this issue, however the search doesn't see it in the text. Anyone that purchases a Holux overseas the warranty will be honoured by us, just make sure you have the invoice with your name on it.

Hi Niko:
Pardon my ignorance, but (1) what is "Holux", and (2) who is "us" as far as the warranty is concerned? I initially thought it was "Hilux" and was a typo, but may be wrong.
This is a genuine question and I am not being smart.
Thanks
Jack

I can't find the first post Niko. I must say I'm very impressed with the price and performance of the AR-10.

I got mine for $85 plus $5 P&P from ebay. I see there's another there but it's gone up to $85 plus $6 P&P. I think the above mob sell them for $90. Whatever the price they're a damn fine unit and work very well with the re-radiating antenna up to about a metre away.

Very presumptious of me to assume people know what Holux is, www.holux.com.tw
will give you an idea of who Holux is. They are a first tier GPS manufacturer (one of the very few manufacturers who buy direct from SiRF and we, as in OctaPC distribute the products in Australia. Therefore, anyone who purchases a Holux GPS from anywhere in the world can come to us for warranty or replacement. Although we have the products on our web site, we will be solely distributing to dealers very shortly. If you want your dealer or even this web site to purchase these GPS to sell on to the end user (namely you) please do not hesitate to let me know and I will twist their arms a bit for you.

G'day Niko, know who houlx are, I bought a Dconnex DC-230, (holux GR-230) through Ebay. Took me a bit of surfing throught the internet to find out exactly what I have. The one thing I did learn is that cheapest deal, even good quality, is not the best. I am happy with the pedigree of the product, but the provider, and his iafter sales service lacks considerably. I hope you can help me with software that actually works with a palm O/s5. No luck with talking to the bloke from singapore. You can email me off line if you think I might be too embarassed to hear what you have to say.......lol.

The funny thing is, very few manufacturers make anything for a Palm, in comparison to a PDA. Taiwan manufacturers have tended to concentrate on Windows based PDAs and forego any development on Palm. The only people really working with Palm is Garmin and that's because they can get the volume sales to make it worthwhile. Rayming state that a number of their GPS units work with Apple Mcintosh and I have sold a few of them on that basis with no returns thus far. If you are looking for any informations on main stream manufacturers (not OEM manufacturers) then go to gpsaustralia.net for details. You can't buy from them unless you are a dealer/retailer. The site has only just been setup and progressing to be complete by the end of the month. Remember though that cheap is for a reason, but it costs importers extra on goods than end users because often the end user's item is below the threshold. Support, service and infrastructure add to the costs. So, if you want to help us grow, better buy local. There is a special on for the Holux GR230 at OctaPC.com.au

Niko, is the data cable on the dc-230 simply a usb to mini usb or is the wiring different. If so, can I purchase one from you. Ta.

The standard USB cable used to power and charge the GR-230 only provides power, not data transfer. However, there is a data cable but what is the other end? A PC or PDA? If PDA which model.
