May I know is there a specific file i need to download to make search by postcode possible?

Database of MsM map postal is not complete. It is an ongoing project.

Hi, recently I had just bought a garmin 55LM. Can advise on how to use the erp avoidance function? Cos I can't seem to see any rates at all and all the routes proposed by gps seem to go through the erp. Can advise whether there is any software or maps which i need to update? Thanks alot!!!

Hi all

I am new to the world of SatNav, MalSingMaps looks like a great resource.

I have a Garmin 42LM and have followed the instructions to download the latest maps & JCV release to an SD card, but when using the search function it doesn't appear to come up with results I would expect. When using the maps that came pre-loaded when I search it comes up with predictive text to allow faster entry, but it doesn't when I use the new maps. Also, when I search for Pantai Seafood there is no result on the new maps, but when I uncheck the new MSM maps and search again it is found.

Any ideas? I thought it could be a conflict of maps, so have tried un-checking the pre-loaded MSM (& others) but still no luck

Many thanks
:tq:

You may want to check whether your nuvi firmware is up to date. I'm not sure whether this latest firmware / software solve the issue

Thanks for the quick response & the suggested workaround which works fine. My firmware is the latest (v2.40) so looks like it has yet to be resolved

Many thanks

Hi

I have purchased a Nuvi 65LM, i have loaded the MSM NT 2015 v7.09 onto my SD card. Selected only the new map in myMaps.
But when I go to address, I can't do a postal code search. The only selection i have is Spell Town, Search All and Change Country. The country is already set to Singapore.

Please helps... Many thanks in advance.

Hi ,
Thanks for the reply. I read the guide before posting the question.
For the version i downloaded, it does'nt have the Spell Post Code button after i select Address.

Thanks again
