    i did bring my 2 Nuvis when we went to Singapore last January... no problem whatsoever... the FA even saw it and didn't even bother asking me to turn it off.

    dont worry about leaving things behind. once, i put a 2 way radio inside my hand carry, they wont let me bring it along. so what they did was issuue me a claim ticket to be claimed upon reaching destination at the baggage area.
    i think they let the stewardes hold on to it

    Hi sam,

    Not all FA will be lenient to you. If you are planning to log your flight, take a window seat and put your gps somewhere near your sleeve facing the window to ensure a continuous good reception. Make an improvise pocket on your jacket sleeve facing the window.

    While in Singapore, on board the city train except the subway, switch on your GPS 5 minutes before you board the train otherwise you will have difficulty in locking with sattelite once the train move because of high rise buildings, trees and tunnels and the train high speed.

    thanks to all you suggestions hbt and RoadGuide.

    atleast the last recourse is to leave it to the fa and you will have your unit back when your back on the ground.
