However, I noticed that directions usually just bring me to the road (or centre of road) instead of the exact address.
For eg, I searched for directions to 25 Pandan Crescent (not using postal code). The directions brought me to Pandan Crescent, but not the exact address.
This is annoying, esp for very long roads.

Is it a limitation of MSM?
I recalled that the official Garmin map allows directions to exact addresses.

Thanks.
I was wondering about the same thing. Have you already found the solution to this, cyanide24?

I've been updating my Zumo for a while now. V7.56 was the last version that I could search properly, all subsequent versions turn up with non related search result. For e.g if I search IMM with key words like IMM, Jurong etc, results will be totally non related.

after each update I will still roll back to 7.56 :(

I think you are searching by address.

Use search by POI.

Hello Mranger,

Can you pls give us more info as to what "navigator" you have? Is it a Nuvi or handheld?
There is a Newbie Help you can read http://malsingmaps.com/mediawiki/index. ... es_Pitstop

Here is our latest map: viewtopic.php?p=214406#top

Do you have a mSD card? It is recommended you install maps in the SD Card under a folder called "Map" or "Garmin" depending what
GPSr you have.
