Re: New Nuvis can now navigate in tunnels.

I bet the feature does not work with the cGPSmapper version.

Re: The Nuvi 255W - Part 3

Bro Ace, don't worry, you can only brick the Nuvi if you mess up it's ROM, where the firmware resides or if you place some types of corrupted data in it's internal memory. Even if you format Nuvi's internal memory, the Nuvi will still work, albeit without a working map. The worst thing that can happ...

Ah... yes, forgot about that. So does this "poor man's dead-reckoning" feature work with both City Navigator and MSM NT maps?

Re: The Nuvi 3790

Had notice that lately, the 3790T will navigate us through the entire length of Kallang / Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE) expressway tunnel ( almost 3km) without the error " lost satellite signal". Looking at the situation, my guess is the GPS is tracking via vehicle speed through software. The satelli...

Re: looking for gmapprom1.img and gmapprom1.unl files

You're welcome. I have copied the file gmapsupp.img into the GPS Garmin folder. You can verify that the map is installed correctly by checking at Nuvi's Map Info. But it seems like it has problem to acquire satellites and my current location (Malaysia). It may take some time, and you need to be outd...

Re: looking for gmapprom1.img and gmapprom1.unl files

No need for any of those, just download this latest MSM map file: http://www.malsingmaps.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=181719#p181719 Then, unzip and place GMAPSUPP.IMG in the map folder. If your Garmin is a Nuvixxx series (3 digit model), the map folders are Nuvi:\Garmin and datacard:\Garmin folders. ...

Re: The Nuvi 255W - Part 3

Bro Ace, I'm just curious. Is the disk (not necessarily with a drive letter) detectable in Window's Disk Management?

Re: The Nuvi 255W - Part 3

Bro dvpro, what do mean on "which version the Nuvi is"?? I mean you should determine the localization of Nuvi, because some localization use a different method to update, ie. Sg/My units should not use Webupdater to update the firmware. I have backup the original Nuvi content when I bought it. So i...

Re: Noob question about GPS (Garmin 1350)

Correct.

Re: The Nuvi 255W - Part 3

I concur with Bro KPLoh, if everything else fails, drive formatting is the way to go. Just make sure you know which version your Nuvi is so that you know which method of updating is suitable for the Nuvi.
