Do you mean, it needs about 15 minutes everytime you boot it up or did it only take as long at the very first time?

Thanks for the link.

There seems to be a aigo mid fever going on all around and its you fault :)

Im just waiting for mobilx to have available and i will order one. its easy than ordering from dfj-store because from mobilx i dont have to worry with customs tax and all that stuff.

Mobilx claims that their version has a sim slot alredy installed?! do you thing its possible that the mini pci slot is already there too? not the 3g card it self but the slot.
Did yours already had the sim card slot too or you soldered both parts? maybe im drifting around here lol...

It seems the GPS software is running on Windows XP but I am wondering if there is a software for linux that comes with Aigo MID. I would rather stick with the original OS of the device.

Hi, which software did you use to view the maps Aigo MID? I've installed u-blox but it didn't work.

Could you help me in this?
