Just download the img version and copy into your card Garmin folder. But you have to rename the existing gmapsupp.img.
What software do you using either que or GMXT. If you are using GMXT then the only big problem was the abbreviated POI. Make your complain to Garmin.

Wish I can help you here but I am not familiar with your device at all. Did you manage to load any of the Malsing maps? If you have, follow the same procedure.

I hope you have checked the WIKI section.

Sometimes, it is a matter of trying till you get it right. Sorry. Hope you succeed. If you do, share your steps with other readers here. Cheers and have a good trip.

GMXT only allow one detail map ie gmapsupp.img.
Your existing Singapore map in your phone rename to sg_gmapsupp.img. You download & copy the Australia map to garmin folder(gmapsupp.img) in your phone.
If you wanted to used the Singapore map back. The now gmapsupp.img renamed to Aus_gmapsupp.img & rename the sg_gmapsupp.img to gmapsupp.img.

ok...but do u know where i can get the perth map? so izzit ok if i dl from this link? wat it mean by mapsource? and wic one to dl and use if the link is correct? thanks

This map forms part of the WA mapset. Download the Installer if you have MapSource software and wish to have both maps. Otherwise download binary files separately.

Perth City Map

It has been a looooong time since I posted a map here ...! Here is Build 51 of my detailed suburban map of Perth city which complements kc's broader, tourist-focused map. The goal is to digitise the Perth street directory ...

Includes Mapsource files.

Create a folder C:\Garmin\WestAust\, unzip files into this folder. Then run WestAust.reg.

Enjoy ...

I downloaded that in my Garmin but it wasn't much useful in City like Melbourne.

:welcome: bro steward low to malsingmaps where all Garmin is discussed.

Please take time to go through the wiki section for more knowledge on GPS

You can find maps of Perth in the general section under "other members maps"
