Re: Garmin Nuvi 7XX hotfix

Thank you.

That probably explains it.
Yes I did delete the original maps that came with the Nuvi!

Luckily I managed to reinstall mapsource - after a desperate search via google!

thanks again for the explanation.

:tq:

Re: Garmin Nuvi 7XX hotfix

I guess what I'm saying is that Garmin Express has its advantages in that it gives me the option of updating the firmware with the hotfixes which I would probably never know about. As for the map updates, I always like to have the maps installed on my PC and the SD card in the Nuvi. The reason is be...

Garmin Nuvi 7XX hotfix

I have a nuvi 7xx series. Recently connected my Nuvi to my PC to update the maps. On its own, Garmin Express was downloaded and I was advised to upgrade the firmware and there were 2 hotfixes for the GPS chip inside - which I did. Must say that after the hotfix upgrade, its capability to get a locat...

Re: The Nuvi 760 - Part 2

Not sure if the 760 is able to display junction view or lane assist. At least mine from US is unable to. Hi, I have a US version 775T. Also cannot display JCV or Lane Assist. At best only gives turn right or left(or I have yet to see it when I travel from Singapore to KL last week)! Sighed! estima1...

Re: Why can't my Nuvi 7x5 route a non-NT maps?

Many thanks

I think you may have hit the nail on the head. My MSM map is combined with JW Sin map!
Will test it out when I get back.

That sounds the most probable answer!

Re: Why can't my Nuvi 7x5 route a non-NT maps?

Tks. I downloaded the MSM 4.21 file onto a SD card and also installed it on mapsource with the installer. I can route on mapsource from Velocity shopping centre to the Genting View Resort (hotel in Genting). Using the same SD card, I cannot route on my Nuvi 7x5. After 80% route calculation, it said ...

Why can't my Nuvi 7x5 route a non-NT maps?

Hi I noticed that since Mar 2010 MSM maps have been released in 2 versions ie one the standard version and a second version for 765 and the the 1460s. I have recently purchased a 7x5 series and I note that the Nuvi 7x5 cannot route the non-NT maps. As an example, it will not route from Singapore to ...

Re: The Nuvi 310 - Part 2

Upgrading of firmware is a sure way OEM control your usage of their products. The most obvious is the removal of firmware download from Garmin for the Nuvi 200 & 300 series. This is to ensure that you have no means to revert back to the older version. You are at their mercy now!.... :fire: You can ...
