Re: SLOW SEARCH using GMXT

I guess the conclusion is that a dedicated GPS unit always functions better and faster then a PDA/Phone running the GPS software. I tried various POIs last nite again, like bottle tree restaurant, wisma atria--results were the same. On my basic NUVI200, it takes a few secs and results start to flash...

SLOW SEARCH using GMXT

wow 4 pages and no straight answer for pzull's question.... Here it goes... For Nuvi 200 and 200W (maybe other nuvi's can too), you can put up to 4 different gmapXXXX.img files into your unit, so long as the combined size does not exceed the limit (160mB's or so). This does not include gmapbmap.img...

Re: How good is the City Nav Sg/My map from Garmin?

You can use both maps. I works with my Nuvi 350. Garmin map you can use for address searching. But you can't display malsingmap on top of it. Malsingmaps is for POI only. gmapprom.img -> this is your Garmin map gmapsupp.img -> this is Malsingmape Example: If u search for Petrol station, then you wi...

Re: How to install other maps in SD card

yes... you have over written the mysing gmapsupp file on your sd card with the latest wa & perth gmapsupp file. I suggest you copy the mysing gmapsupp to the nuvi internal memory and the foreign gmapsupp to the sd card. you may combine the maps into one but the combine file may become too large and...
