Hi Welcome to MSM,kingoflimbs wrote:Hello, I'm from the United States and there is a Garmin 1450 on sale for a good price. What are your thoughts on this model? I have an outdated model and it took forever to find the satellite in Singapore when I loaded msm. Will the 14xx series be an improvement in finding satellites quicker?
Final question, is the latest msm map release or the NT 2010 map better for this unit? Is there a difference?
ETA: I notice the mods are recommending 2465, but it's more expensive than the 1450 that I'm considering. I don't see the 2465 listed in the U.S. Is the equivalent model 2460?
Let me answer your last question: The lastest MSM maps (MSM v5.xx series) are maps produced internally by
our Admin, using data supplied by our Members and mapped by our Mappers. There is some JCV but at the moment
limited to certain areas of KL only. More JCVs will be added in the future. This map is released roughly every
The MSM NT 2010 is compiled by Garmin using Garmin compiler but the data came from older MSM v5.xx
This map has all the bell & whistle but only fully usable in localised Nuvi units (which the one you intend to get isn't)
This map is released whenever Garmin releases it and I assure you, it won't be a fortnightly even.
If you intend to get the US SKU unit, then go for the MSM v5.xx series map.
Sorry I cannot advise you on the functions of the Nuvi 1xxx series cos I don't have the privilage to own any
new nuvis Maybe some other Members can help you.
