Jerome's map of Sg should show the physical location of all the HDB blks. If u want to see the blk nos. in your device, please zoom in to the maximum and the blk number should appear. Jerome's map covers only Singapore and Johor and I dunno what is the term and condition for using his maps when your bought your Nuvi 205. For those who made a donation to him, we are given a permanent unlock codes for all future release of his maps. In your case, I would suggest you visit his website at http://gpsmaps.jwpixs.com/ to enquire about your case. For malsing maps here, there is a free version 2.50 dated Feb 08 and it is good enough to get you started and u need to make at least 2 contributions towards error and/or POIs in order to qualify for unlock codes for the latest version of the map - v2.30.

Hi bro muhd izzaaz,

There are 2 versions of Singapore map from Jerome.

One of them is the one you found here, he is one of the mapper here. These maps are free (I consider 2 contributions as free) and I think your pre-loaded map is from here.

The other one, which have HDB blocks and numbers, is as mentioned by Bro Redstorm. You'll have to make a very small donation for a lifetime of updates. Please remember, it is very hard work making the map.

If you wants to meet up, I've only got the time tonight. I'll be back to Indonesia tomorrow.

You still need to unlock the map in mapsource. Click on "Utilities" at the top and "Unlock Map" to go thru the process of unlocking it. Thanks.

In SD/Micro Memory card...... you must create dir name \garmin and copy gmapsupp.img there.
If you want more map in your device, just combined all map using sendmap or read WIKI to do that....
... but you must have only one file name gmapsupp.img

.......gmapsupp.img must sit in garmin directory in your memory card.

malaysia map installation onto garmin nuvi for beginner??

#27 Post by BigBonedBen » Wed Oct 22, 2008 1:16 pm

hi guys,
i've spent my entire morning trying to make sense out of the stuff posted here, but i'm afraid i'm just another beginner trying his luck.
well my story goes like this, i bought a garmin nuvi 250 from the uk (with pre-installed uk and european map), and am now trying to load a malaysian map onto it, how can i go about doing so?
- i've obtained an east malaysian map from http://maps.three15.org/download.html, downloaded a software called mapsource 6141 from garmin main site.
question 01: where can i download a full malaysia map??
quesiton 02: how do i open it using mapsource?
question 03: i've got a sd card. how do i transfer the malaysian map onto my garmin? without erasing my original uk map? (cause alot of warning are being given out here that original map will be wiped off)
question 03: how do i get it to work on my garmin nuvi?

any tips and hints given will be very much appreciated.
thanks very much.

question 03: i've got a sd card. how do i transfer the malaysian map onto my garmin? without erasing my original uk map? (cause alot of warning are being given out here that original map will be wiped off) The preload UK map should named GMAPPROM.IMG if you did not make any changes, so you may name your Malaysia/Singapore map to GMAPSUPP.IMG, you may connect your Nuvi to PC with USB cable to make the transfer the file of maps
question 03: how do i get it to work on my garmin nuvi? Once you downloaded the file @ Q1, run it, then copy & paste the GMAPSUPP.IMG file to your Nuvi or to SD Card
Good Luck
