Hi all,

My Garmin is about to croak (nuvi 1460) after buying from Perfect Watch and then getting a refurbished after having problems with the battery. I am looking for another Garmin and went to SLS but do not see Perfect Watch anymore. Did they move to another location? If they are no longer around, any suggestions on reputable gps stores?

I am looking at getting the 2465 or the 2565 and wanted to hear if there are any pros/cons from current owners/buyers. It appears the functionality is more or less the same though screen size is bigger than the other one. I wonder why the 2565 doesn't have bluetooth to connect your mobile phone?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Perfect Watch is still around at ground level of SLS, near to the escalator. I have the 2465 and it is among the best I have owned so far. Satellite logon is extremely fast.

Hi,
Can anyone describe here what does it mean by "Garmin AP Set"? Is "AP" different from Original? I searched the forums but could not find my answer.
Thank you
Marry

AP is generally a term used in Handphones. In GPS speak we have Localised Versions and others.
Even then Localised units only has a difference in certain units of NUVIs. Handheld on the otherhand
are unaffected whether its Localised or not-localised.

Certain units of Localised NUVIs are needed to show Junction Views when using the Garmin MY/SG CN or
MSM NT 2012.xx format maps. This is how Garmin protects its local interest. For our case, Localised means
a unit designed for and sold to Malaysia/Singapore and Brunei markets. If you bought a Nuvi from Taiwan or
US, you'll still be able to use all the Garmin Maps but you won't see junction View when you're using MY/SG
maps. If your Nuvi model doesn't support Junction View then it makes no diff whether you bought it here
or in Timbaktu.

Handhelds like Oregon, HCx, 60 CSx etc ate not affected because it doesn't support Junction View to begin with.

if you buy garmin gps from malaysia and singapore you will have jcv.

how jcv works is actually depending on contribution from people. so if lets say if you need to turn left, if there is a jcv on that place, it will show you to turn left on your gps with a picture on the right hand side (half screen)...

Junction View was a feature where the GPS device will attempt to replicate the next turn off via a graphic / picture illustration of actual junction on your GPS display. So if you are on a highway and the road sign says “Exit xxx”, your GPS will display a similar sign picture on the display screen letting you known that is where you need to go. See Picture example

Any of the Nuvi models including the 50LM should be fine for your use in Malaysia and Singapore.
