Just bought a 1350 from US. \:D/
Is it normal that MSM NT v5.02 cannot search by postal code ?
Tried using MSM NT 2010.20, no issue with postal code.
Thanks :thumbsup:
No, it is not normal. Using the MSM v5.02 map, it should be able to search by postal code too albeit by a different method than when used with the MSM NT 2010.20 map. I don't own the 1350 but mine is the 3790 but I believe it should work the same way. With the MSM NT map 2010.20 map, to search for postal code, you use the "Address" function to do whereas when using the MSM v5.02 map, u use "Point of Interest" followed by "Spell Name" then key-in the postal code number.

Hi memolink,

In 1xxx series devices, the maps resides in GPS:\map folder. If you want to save the map file in you microSD card, then you need to create garmin folder & put your map there.

Help needed

#145 Post by bryan09 » Wed Nov 10, 2010 2:14 am

Hi all gurus, wanna ask about 2 things.

1) How can I download an update for the maps of SG and Malaysia and store it inside my Garmin Nuvi 610? And how do I go about installing it into my device? Through the SD card or the GPS unit itself?

2) My uncle is using a China brand GPS unit which is using MapKing (but the file names seems to be malsing), and he accidentally deleted all the files inside his SD card and now he cant access the view map icon, saying that it cant locate map. Which file can he download to make his GPS working again? If I'm not wrong the format of the files in his GPS is ".G12"

Please help me thanks!!

Go to our download section and get our "all-on-one" map. Rename the file to gmapsupp.img and put it in SD card /garmin directory. As with all gadgets, backup, backup, backup first :thumbsup:

If it is map needed, then we do have a mapking version of MSM. Go to out download section and download it. If it is OS/firmware, there are many China made GPS devices in the market using cracked software to enable them to use Garmin / Mapking maps and yours is probably one of those. Sorry, we dun provide any form of help here for such devices. Please refer to the manufacturer or google for assistance. Thank you.

Hi,
Can the POI from MSM be displayed on the Garmin 1350 ?
Read that POI from MFM cannot be shown on the 1350 ?
Btw, does v5.02 have POI ?
Thanks.

Hi there,


I have encountered a problem while updating my GPS, hope you can help!

My GPS (Nuvi 710), is not a MY/SG SKU, so I followed the instructions to download the gmapsupp.img and gmapsupp.unl files and pasted inside the SD card. I downloaded the MSM NT 2010.20.

It installed properly and I can see the map updated in the GPS.

However, when I tried to search for an address, e.g. Waterloo Street in Singapore, it is unable to. It says "no matches found". Also, the postal code search also disappeared.

I have since backtracked and I put in the backup copies I made into the GPS. It works as per normal just that the map is the old 2009.30.

How can I resolve the problem and load the new map? Thanks a million!

Shi Wei
