Just a short question in regards to Pq2 GO-710, 7"screen GPS from E-Bay (China) running Route 66 on SD card. Is it possible to run Shonky Map loadded on a separate SD card, and what software is required to read and use Shonky Map???
Thank you for your help

The OS is the operating system.

Judging by the specs above your GPS has a proprietary OS and wouldn't run Shonky or Oziexplorer.

Without knowing anything about the Pq2 GO-710, 7"screen GPS I think it highly unlikely that you can use any other map than that provided with the device can be installed. Most PDA based in car navigation systems have the option of running other software butb devices such as Tom Tom Navman etc cannot.

I think to run Ozie etc you need a Windows operating system
Usually Ce or similar
