POIs are already embedded in map. You can add to your own personal POI via your Nuvi or through Garmin Mapsource

I have a map update question for my Garmin. I purcahsed a Garmin nuvi 1360 in Singapore about 1.5 years ago. About 1/2 year ago, I have had the Garmin replaced at an authorized distributor because of some faulty issues and it was replaced with an apparent refurbished nuvi 1360. My question is on the map updates. The maps have both Malsingmaps Mal/Sing NT 2011.10 and CN Sing/Mal NT 2011.20. I am seeking an update on both maps and have attached to the Communicator and it is telling me my maps are up to date even though I know it is not the case? How do I update the maps? Thanks.

Thanks for the referral - as I managed to download the MSM NT 2011.40 and installed it fine.

As for the City Navigator and trying to install the NT 2011.20 - it said the device is not eligible. Is it because these devices are allowed one update and the rest must be purchased?

Any shortcomings to using MSM NT 2011.40 and not having CN 2011.40?

Thanks again.

No short-comings to be expected as you can only use one map at a time anyway.

It is a matter of personal preference on the choice of map.

MSM NT 2011.40 was made from contributions of members of this Forum. CN 2011.40 used commercial data.
Lean not on your own understanding

Please advise me on map installation. I just got nuvi 50LM from USA, I cannot find any topics which talks about 50LM.

Can Malsing v545 be used on 50LM? Need unlock as well?

Thanks

Nuvi 50LM is one of the latest model. Look under section "Nuvi 1xxx, 2xxx, 3xxx & all the latest model"
