How is the GPS feature used?

hi, for GPS function on RT90, you need to use your RT90 mobile radio in the car.
And it will shows the longitude and latitude on the display!

I repeatedly see references to the Retevis RT90 stating it has a capacity for one-hundred thousand contacts. I own one and find it interesting that the transceiver does NOT store more than ten-thousand contacts. The supplied manual also clearly states ten-thousand (page 84).

There is a ten-food difference between 10,000 and 100,000contact capacity as statement by some. Am I missing something in translation?

Please advise.
