Using the MSM NT 2011.10, I managed to find Jalan Bakti by using > Where To > Address > Change Country (change to Malaysia) > Search All (skip "Spell Town", do not enter "Johor Bahru"). Skip "Enter House Number" by clicking on "Done" and next, "Enter Street" It will produce a list of places in Malaysia with the same road name. I believe the Jalan Bakti in Johor, you are refering to, is in Senai. It is shown in the result.

GPS is not infallible. Use initiative to find closest and best match.

Between City Navigator Singapore/Malaysia NT 2011.10 vs Malsingmaps Malaysia/Singapore/Brunei NT 2011.10, I managed to find the closed match with City Navigator Singapore/Malaysia NT 2011.10 :thumbsup:

MainMenu - WhereTo -Address - ChangeCountry - EnterCountry (Malaysia) - Done - SearchAll - EnterHouseNumber (4) - EnterStreet (Jalan Bakti) - Done

A list of names appears.

Choose the first one Jalan Bakti. If finds the location and based on Postal Code of 80300, it is closest match to your address to find.... "No. 4, Jalan Bakti, Kawasan Perindustrian Larkin 80350 Johor Bahru

Hope this helps.

Thanks.
for your method as above, bypass keying the "Enter City" step, it will be showing whole malaysia "jalan bakti" result. Why we need to bypass the "Enter City" step ? if we enter the City name, it will be shorten the result list. Where can I feedback this problem and get the fix on the future map ?

hi bro Silverbeauty,
For your mention Postal code, I can found the "Spell Postal Code" at Address search page when change country to Singapore, but it only search the Singapore's Postal Code, how about malaysia ? for "jalan bakti" place what i wonder is not in Senai. it is near to Pasir gudang according what my friend told me just now.

your help is much appreciate. Thanks.

Bro SB is right. The GPS is not infallible. So your best chance of success is to expect the logical not to happen.

From my experience, the best results are obtained when you are less specific. Do not fix the city but search 'All cities' and search for the keyword of 'Bakti' instead of Jalan Bakti and see if there is a difference in results.

We have not programmed Malaysian Postcodes into the map for searching yet.
Lean not on your own understanding

Bro Jack_Kwek, I did a little research as to your final address via wikimapia.org. Based on your address, are you looking for :

Pusat Poslaju Johor Bahru
No. 4, Jalan Bakti, Kawasan Perindustrian Larkin
80350 Johor Bahru
Tel. : 07 - 2352 142/3/6
Fax : 07 - 2357 055

If so, the POI is already on MSM NT v5.13. Co-ordinates is at N1 30.659 E103 44.501
