Looks like a good GPS running Route66 street mapping and an operating system WINCE 4.2 NET

so long as the software runs off an SD card it should work

In theory yes it could run Oziexplorer. However, you would need to be IT literate enough to be able to configure and get it working, which may take a deal of mucking around (There are instructions available on the net to assist with this) .

Also, I noticed it takes a SD card, but it does not indicate if it will also support SDHC. If it only supports SD then you are limited to 4GB. Finally, the screen resolution is only 480x234 so it will not be the best quality display.

Yes, guy here at work has exactly the same one.

Biggest SD Card we could find was a 2gb, 4gb are SDHC which wont work.

But basically put OziCE on a new SD Card & name the Ozi binary the same name as Route66 executable, then when you select Navigator it will load up Ozi.

Ozi finds the GPS no problems & loads maps no worries.

I used my 4.3" one a few weekends ago, exclusively on Ozi. Mrs loved not having to nurse a laptop.

The unit seemed very slow everytime he did a turn, also it showed
the train station on screen but not the railway line across the road , I wonder if the Garmin does show that on the screen. I can see it on the PC , the price seems good for the size of screen
