MSM NT 2009.40 doesn't come with a mapsource installer. Keep the MSM v3.09 for reference in mapsource. Usually, the MSM map is released first for testing by contributors before it is released as a NT 2009.xx map. So the 2009.40 is about on par as the v3.09.
:tq: Redstorm. So for reporting error on NT 2009.xx map, therefore I have to attached
MSM v3.09 file from mapsource is that right?

For error and/or new POI reporting, use mapsource with the v3.09 map for reference. Just pinpoint the location on the map, save a copy and upload the .gdb file when you submit your contribution. This is the preferred way to contribute but you could contribute by just indicating the coordinates. Doing this way may be easier for your but tedious for the mappers as they have many contributions, not just yours, to handle. The .gdb file will help lighten the mapper's workload. Thank you.

Gohct, download, unzip and run this installer to replace v3.09 with v4.03 in Mapsource: [Download] MSM mapsource installer (note: if you had installed Borneo v3.09 previously, you might want to uninstall it since v4.03 includes Sabah/Sarawak/Brunei maps as well)

Yes, MSM ALL v4.03 can co-exists in your Nuvi with other My/Sg maps like MSM NT and City Navigator (provided that only 1 mapset is enabled at any 1 time). However, Nuvi1xxx series may have some issues using this cGpsmapper compiled map.
I take everything in moderation, including moderation.

Then I copy/paste gmapsupp.img file from MSM ALL v4.03 zip file to nuvi Garmin folder
and running ok.
