An Addonics 2.5" IDE mSATA adapter P/N ADMS25IDE with Samsung P/N MZMTE128HMGR-000D1 128GB mSATA SSD also works.

Interesting that the KingSpec P/N "PA25-128" 128gb SSD ide drive, did not get locked by the HU.

Redundancy, Hard drive was 8 years old, now I have a backup.(Another expensive item to repair at dealer)

Speed has not been a problem, will try and notice if it is faster when I search for points of interest near me.

How does one access the physical hard drive in order to replace it?

Remove the radio, flip it over and remove carrier with HDD. Unlock on old IDE computer with xboxhdm v1.9 on a cd, select option "3" lock and unlock in Linux.
Type unlockhd -p longUserPasswordFromMelcoCalculator (Or posted unlock codes)
press enter

Then copy with "HDD raw copy tool".

Note,
IDE HDD needs to be on primary master cable position.
No other HDD's attached to computer.
Laptop did not work for me.
Desktop requires a 44 pin to 40 pin adapter. ($5 on ebay)

Just tested POI lookup, WOW, amazing fast, as in instant results.
I remember lookup as being slow...
