    GNS 5860 is a GPS-RDS/TMC receiver SOLD BY MApfactor

    Has anyone tried the GNS 5860 is a GPS-RDS/TMC receiver SOLD BY Mapfactor?

    Does it do what it is supposed to do? Does it integrate well with Mapfactor and show traffic without hassles?

    I was thinking of buying the version of MapFactor made for trucks (it give height and weight restriction info so you don't get yourself in trouble).

    I have a Garmin trucking GPS that not only shows traffic and weight/height restrictions but it also tells you well in advance if there is a weigh station up ahead and if the station is open or closed (Via data send over TMC). I am hoping this feature works on MapFactor as well.

    Did you ever pick one up and try it? I'm curious as well because it seems like I'd heard the European versions wouldn't work here in the states.. I'm looking around for further information

    Got one, yet to try it....

    Life got a bit screwed up for a while for me but should be back on course soon. I will update when I get there.
