Re: Loading MSM into Nuvi part 3

Localized set are those pre-loaded with local maps by Garmin. Your set looks like for sale in Thailand. For nuvi 205W, there isn't much disadvantages on AP set.

Re: Loading MSM into Nuvi part 3

Just popped up in my mind, can I check whether my unit is original from Garmin or AP set? I personally believe the unit cant communicate with pc is ridiculous. Does AP set has anything to do with this? I read from other forum saying that ori 205W sells for around RM1k whereas mine was RM840.

Re: Loading MSM into Nuvi part 3

All, thanks for the prompt replies. Will try with other cables and pc. But of course any time soon I can refer to the seller but that would be my last resort since the unit was purchased in KL and I stay nowhere near KL. Cheers.

Select "No" will off the unit...

Re: Newbie Saying Hello to MSM [Post your HELLO here] Part 2

I tried connect the 205W to pc but pc does not detect it. Was using this usb cable: http://www.liquidware.com/system/0000/0 ... _thumb.jpg

I suppose that is the correct cable?
