I am using 3790 and 1350 and 765 with MSM NT 5.40. All found the address, though POI is a little offset :-'

I am replicating what Bro JasonLee says in his thread but in more detail step-by-step .....
MainMenu - WhereTo - Address - ChangeCountry - Enter Country as MALAYSIA - Select MALAYSIA - SearchAll - EnterHouseNumber as 46 - EnterStreet as Jalan Anson - Select Jalan Anson - Select GeorgeTown, Pen - 2 Jalan Anson will appear. It is not spot on the POI but is nearby and then use common sense to search for address # 46.
Thanks Bro Silverbeauty,

One word of advice in making searches. Although we are purging our map of inconsistencies (and it will take time), there are still many as our map is a collaborative effort done by many people over the years. So try not to spell a name completely or be too specific. USE KEYWORDS. The keyword for Jalan Anson is ANSON. There may be many versions of Jalan XXX in our map. It may exist as Jalan XXX or Jln XXX or J. XXX or XXX Road or XXX Rd or XXX, J or XXX Jln etc. If you key in the wrong version, the result will be NO MATCH FOUND. However had you keyed in XXX, you still have a chance to decide if what you found is what you want.

Hi everyone,

1)i would like to know how can i find

Quayside Isle, 31 Ocean Way #01-01, Sentosa, 098368

can't seem to find it in my nuvi2465

i tried searching for
"098368"
"quayside"
"ocean"
"sentosa"

but either there is "no results" or not the exact address.

2) i have use an old nuvi300, and now using nuvi2465

on my 300, when i type "simon" i am able to get "simon road"

but on my 2465, i cant find "simon road"

the search function on my 2465 seems to be less powerful than my old 300.

Does that mean we need to use Navteq to search first then use MSM to navigate?
I am in SG and have Garmin 42LM. I am on latest MSM NT v6.48

basically when I doing search with MSM NT v6.xx selected, this is the result:
Method 1:
Where To=> Search => type keyword of address (like "botanic" for botanic garden), returns nothing to me
Method 2:
Where To=> Address => search All => house number => street name, it usually can find the street i want but the house number usually get ignored..

What I have to do is: search in Navteq first, then save the address. then switch to MSM NT map and start navigation. which is very troublesome if you need to change destination during the trip...

Well, nothing beats planning before starting your journey.

For me, I accept the limitation of our map. I used various ways to get the GPS coordinates and saved them into the GPSr before taking a drive... of course unplanned detour will result in a scenic drive.. minus the frustration..

But end of the matter is this. The GPSr is just a tool, Singapore is not big and using some common sense will still get you to the place you want to go. Too dependent on the GPSr is an obsession which is unhealthy. :mrgreen:

Hi all!

I've got an old Nuvi 1390 that was previously used in Australia, i got it updated with the latest MSM 2014 NT v6.59, fired it up, got signal and displayed the map fine..
but then i wanted to search for addresses in Singapore, none showed up, its strange as when i try to manually scroll to the Singapore map it displayed all the street names fine.

What do i do to get to do address searches again?
Any advise will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!
Eugene

Have you changed the country for search?

You may still be trying to find a Singapore address in Australia.

I think he is expecting to search by house number perhaps? Our maps do not support street no.

Thank you Sirs for the reply.
It was just a plain street name search, no street number nor postcode.
I have overwritten the Australian/New Zealand map that was previously inside.


Thanks again
