Default Who got bored? This guy. GPS modding

For those of you who have the Mio 310x GPS unit, there'* some pretty cool stuff you can do with it. http://www.miogrand.com/ is the link you want to check out.

I got bored the other day. GF was at work, it was snowing out, and I had nothing to do. So... I turned my Mio into a pocket PC (kind of), plus a modded GPS. When you turn the unit on, it now goes to my desktop, which is that that my avatar is. It also has an MP3 player, and a few other things that Windows CE comes with on my Pocket PC. If you want to use the GPS navigational software, you just simply click the icon on the desktop that looks like a Mac icon.

Here'* some pics:

Now that I know how to do it... I'm going to PS up a better splash screen

It made me want to keep this GPS, and not take the one I'm going to be getting for Christmas (Navigon 2100), but it has traffic monitoring lol.

That'* just about what they were on 2006'* BF at Fry'*. I bought one for that price with a warranty and then sold it to a friend, a truck driver, for a little profit.
