Hi! I'm lost (lol!). Is this thread only for POI (eg Hotels, Office Buildings, Post Office etc) or can we also include HDB blocks postal codes and other buildings' postal codes?

If we can include postal codes here, is the format to be in the following?
Example:
Coordinates: N01 19.557' E103 56.045'
Postal Code/Address: 462220 220B Bedok Central

Else kindly point me to the thread where I can contribute postal codes and coordinates to be included in the weekly CGSMAPPER for Garmin XT.

Thank you.

I'm using Garmin XT 5.00.20wp with Mapset MSM MYSGBN v4.35 running on Omnia II I8000, Windows Mobile 6.5.

When I do a search for the following, it says none found:
18 HAVELOCK ROAD

But when I navigate the map manually, going to New Bridge Road and "shifting" the map manually and point to the building, it shows the address correctly as follows:
Ministry Of Manpower
18 Havelock Road

Can someone kindly advise how am I to do a search in Garmin XT so I can find this address?

Thank you in advance!

I tested MSM v4.34 using GMXT 5.00.20 WM and managed to find Havelock Road (I believe premise numbering is not supported in this map).

1. How did you install the map? Did you use GMAPSUPP.IMG or transfer map via Mapsource?
2. Did you specify Singapore when searching?
3. Is there any other Singapore/Malaysia maps installed in GMXT?

Oh. I can find Havelock Road. No problem with that.

I just could not find the building "Ministry Of Manpower" whose address is 18 Havelock Road.

I tried searching for it 3x. Strangely, today I am able to find it using the EXACT same method I did when I first started searching for it. Hmmm, I wonder if the phone has cached it or something :-k

Following are answers to your queries:
Yes I am using GMAPSUPP.IMG
Yes, I selected Singapore when searching
No, there are no other maps installed

What I did for my search then (and today) was as follows:
Launched GarminXT
Tapped on "Where to?"
Tapped "Points of Interest"
Tapped "Spell Name"
Typed "Ministry of Manpower"

Like I said, today I can find it. Don't know why I couldn't the other day. Thus I resorted to using address, instead of building name. But looks like that was not my day for using GarminXT :)

Can you also kindly advise how do I go about searching for postal code please? I have been reading that postal codes are not fully coded into the system yet.

And yes, I sincerely do appreciate your prompt reply.

Thank you very much.

Best Regards,

nitro

Hi! Can anyone enlighten me on this please?
Also, if I find an entry existing on the map, but a postal code is not associated/tagged to it, how do I contribute pls?

Thank you in advance!
