Re: The Nuvi 1250

Alamak, SB you should have shared this earlier! Anyway, I share another info. Although maybe you guys all know already. I took my iPhone 4 charger and plugged in a normal USB cable. Although it initially went into sync mode, it subsequently went into charging mode! I think both iPhone 4 and Nuvi AC ...

Re: Nuvis can now navigate in tunnels with NT maps

This simple feature is so useful that it is very surprising Garmin took so long to implement it. TomTom has it for some years already, and I raised it previously: http://www.malsingmaps.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=140399#p140399 Without it, our Nuvis are almost useless in tunnels as they go completel...

Re: The Nuvi 1350 SG/MY

discoburg, I believe not all junctions have junction views. Maybe you can let me know the exact route you took. I just bought a Nuvi 1250 so I think the map should be the same.

Re: The Nuvi 1250

Just a note to say that I got myself a Nuvi 1250 at Sitex 2010 at S$179. I think pretty good deal. Managed to get a case for $15 too. There were other offers for AC charger, friction mount, TMC receiver etc but I did not get them.

Re: MSM Junction View & Lane Info using our Garmin compiler

Pardon me if this question has already been asked as I have been away from this forum for quite some time. I just bought a Nuvi 1250 from Sitex 2010. It comes pre-installed with MSM 2010.20 and City Navigator 2010.30. By default, both maps are selected, which means, I believe, that the CN map will b...

Re: The Nuvi 1250

Must be my cocked-eye see wrongly. $198 see as $189. Anyway, $199 with the friction mount, case or AC adapter is a much better deal. I would take the friction mount. Should cost around $30 if purchased separately.

Re: Help~ cannot find the correct way in my Garmin 260W

Anything is possible, including the most common mistake of first-timers located in Singapore/Malaysia wondering why the overseas map they installed just wouldn't show up on the screen for them to do routing.

Re: Help~ cannot find the correct way in my Garmin 260W

I realised that quite a number of non-english speaking users are now coming to this and other forums for help. So, let's go easy on them. Nevertheless, they must still make the effort to give as much details as possible. At least, TS here gave some details. There are many others who are terrible e.g...

Re: The Nuvi 1250

Try Perfect Watch at Sim Lim Square. Should be able to get the same price less the free gift. I think. :-$ If you decide to buy in Singapore, you can also try Parisilk @East Coast. I had lunch nearby today, dropped in and saw Nuvi 1250 with a price tag of $189. I think no free gift. The friction mo...
