No such thing.
For every major version upgrade, the map format will be changed. Can you imagine getting a converter program to convert powerpoint file into autocad file?

omg......so this is how they make money. Once bought the V7, the new map of G10 i cannot buy also.......then wat is the point of buying mapking software when u know that V7 may not want to upgrade its map anymore....when that happens, i need to fork out extra $ to buy Version 10 programe........well, i called that unethical business strategy!

Well, this is the practise of software realm. Also the fact that new software, additional features will need format changes to cater.
So, when you buy software, read the agreement. (99.9% people don't read). Check their upgrade agreement.

Anyway, I think v7 still have updated map. There are also special discount/offer for v7 to upgrade. That's also why Malsing can play a part as usergroups. With current G10/2007 agreement with Mapking, we can make it to the full use by custom updating our own map together here.

as far as i know the malsing for mapking (ppc) version can only be used for G10 version (.g10) & 2007 version (.g10 rename to .m7a)
ask not (just) what malsingmaps can do for you
ask what you can do for malsingmaps (also)

Iayah ](*,) ](*,) #-o Wsian oledi explained that Malsingmaps only support G10 (or V10) and also Mapking2007 only. Version earlier than G10 can't used the maps here.. ](*,) So if u hv V7..u still can get Malaysia maps but not malsing,aps. from their website directly:
