Hi, I'm a newbie. I have a Garmin Nuvi 1300, purchased in Oct 2009, in Singapore. I am looking for map download for my upcoming hike in Penang, with the hike trail waypoints marked on the map, from Chin Farm (in Batu Ferringhi) to Batu Ferringhi Dam to Bukit Laksamana (also known as Laksamana Hill, or Eagle Point).
I understand that this trail is available in MSM.
How do I go about doing the download to my PC, & loading it onto my Garmin Nuvi 1300 GPS unit?
Many tx !
HI Bro KokSoon,
Download from HERE
and unzip then place the resultant gmapsupp.img file in an SD card
. You can create either a \Garmin folder in the SD card and place the gmapsupp.img file in the folder with the filename unchanged or create a \Map folder and place the gmapsupp.img file in the folder where you have the option to rename the file to anything you wish as long as the extension remains .img e.g. MSM NT v529.img or koksoon.img or leave it as gmapsupp.img if you do not intend to store another map.
Remember you have to use an SD card as I would not recommend any other way.
Please note that your battery of your Nuvi may not last the distance of the hike.
