Hi David,
 I assume you've realised the model number - even the model - is fairly irrelevant. Maybe of interest is something I did once for Singapore for one of my first trips there. That was to search for gps coordinate listings via google for singapore (same for any city or country). I found several sites which had the data for points of interest which I could fairly easily import into my gps. An example of a site with such lists is - that was one of many from a google search for "gps coordinates tokyo points of interest"
 It worked fairly well for me, except in the midst of tall buildings!! I also found a few sets of coordinates by finding places (relative's homes) in google earth and entering them manually.

one last thing... I bought a TyTN II smartphone which has a gps built in. It came bundled with "mapking" maps and they're supposedly specialists in asian maps. I'm not recommending them, just pointing out an alternative mapsource to look at. They're at or (chinese)
no, here's the last thing... have you looked at google maps for mobiles? (

I've used a garmin emap gps receiver often in the past and imported routes into google earth. Worked easily and well. Have used it to log path of a plane too, and had a 3d route in google earth.

I have access to a TYTN II / TomTom combination. Used it for driving in Scotland/England for 2 weeks while on hols from australia - worked wonderfully with voice instructions.
Also, at home, house hunting, it was great to put in a lot of addresses from the real estate section and easily navigate from property to property.
One of my better investments!

one thing useful in exifer (and probably in other apps too) is the ability to save templates so besides batch tagging files, you can reload a set of tags to use again ... eg Ive a template for a sheep station I camp at a lot, so can load it up and only have to make minor changes to tag images from each camping trip to there.
