Google Maps Navigation is available in Malaysia

Yeah… Google Maps Navigation is officially available in Malaysia. No need hack version to use the navigation feature anymore. Does it better than Waze: Free GPS Navigation with Turn by Turn? Well, at least Google Navigation provides correct route from my house to other places. Waze provides the no entry path ~ a minor mistake. Anyway, both require Internet access as they are online GPS navigator (not like Papago offline version).

Google Nexus 7 (2013) ~ Ask your question here

Yes… Google Nexus 7 (2013) is in the house. It is not for sales at lot of places yet. So this unit came from US. Initial seller couldn’t make it on time, so I ended up getting from my previous 1st generation seller again. The availability and price of Nexus 7 (2013) at Malaysia? It should come in the middle of September or later. So don’t bother to get it from US if you can wait. As for the price, it should be RM999 for 16GB Wi-Fi and RM1099 for 32GB Wi-Fi (based on 1st gen pricing). No news about LTE version yet.

Google’s latest most popular Android tablet ~ Nexus 7 (2013) faced the same issue as the previous generation. Yup, build quality issues. Lot of users reported that their new Nexus 7 has issues like dead pixel, LCD screen light bleed, erratic multi-touch, GPS lock, low speakers volume, random reboot, oddly coloured pixels, dust under LCD screen, creaking sound… Some can be fixed by factory reset. Some don’t. That’s the fate of earlier adopters. Did Asus lowers quality control in order to rush to market on time? Anyway, just exchange for a new one if face issues.
