Thanks first for your guidance.

Download our free map from this link : http://www.malsingmaps.com/forums/viewt ... 39#p194539

Buy a SD card. Unzip the map file gmapsupp.img. Create a directory /garmin and put the map file into it.

you can install to the internal memory...

but..
jasonlee wrote:An SD card should be your primary storage - not an alternative. SD cards cost almost nothing if damaged. A damaged internal memory will cost you as much as a new GPS. Try not to save any maps into the internal memory if possible. Another important point - if a map in the SD card is corrupted, the GPS will still boot but not read the map but if a map in the internal memory is corrupted, your GPS will not boot and you end up with an expensive paper-weight.

installing malsing maps into sd card

#294 Post by wong01 » Tue Nov 29, 2011 2:22 pm

Hi, being a newbie and heeding the advice of sifus here to install the map update onto a sd card (so as not to brick the nuvi should something go wrong during the install process), I downloaded the correct map for my nuvi 1460.
I then extracted the map with the correct unlock code, the process went smoothly until the last part where the actual installation takes place. It then said that the nuvi was not plugged into the pc and I could go no further.
How do I get the installation to search for the sd card (which is mounted into a card reader) so that the map can be installed there.
Any help/assistance on this matter will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance.

Via PC, copy to SD card /garmin directory

Enjoy and please contribute map errors reporting / new POI etc... :thumbsup:

Many thanks for the speedy reply. I would really like to install Malsingmaps Malaysia/Singapore/Brunei NT 2011.30, not MSM NT 5.31.
Anymore hints.
