Dear sir or madam,

I have a problem with my car gps unit which was produced by Magneti Marelli. I am sending this e-mail because I red somewhere over the web that the software of the unit was developed by Ciao Technologies running on VxWorks Tornado 5.5 Automotive. I searched for VxWorks on the Internet and my search led to EPICS. This is the reason I decided to send you the e-mail. I wonder if you could explain me some basics about all these programs or protocols or systems because I am confused. I would like to ask you if I can load the software of my car gps system on my PC and make some changes I want. I found additional information for my gps system and I attach them below as I found it over the web:

"Quick bit of info. Theres a lot of talk on forums about what these units contain. Due to the lame interface somepeople thing the operating system is Windows, this is untrue.
  • Radio/Amplifier board manufactured by Grundig
  • Motherboard manufactuered by/for Magneti Marelli
  • Wavecom GSM telephony (AT command set)
  • Osprey GPS reciever
  • Software built by Ciaolab Technologies running on VxWorks Tornado 5.5 Automotive
  • Hitachi SH4 SH7750 CPU @ 166MHz @ (HD6417750F167I)
  • 6.5" 256 colour TFT LCD panel manunfactured by Toshiba
  • 8mb Flash ROM (TSOP 2 x 4Mb, option for 1 x 8mb also), TrueFFS filesystem
    • Fujitsu 29DL323TE-90PFTN is one known model
    • Intel E28F320-J3A110 is another"

Thank you in advance,
Konstantinos Ziakas
