How to Find MSM Version No./ How to Update MSM

#1 Post by dysl » Wed Feb 13, 2008 3:58 pm

Sorry for this newbie question - I just got a Garmin Nuvi 200 yesterday which has a preloaded map from malsingmaps. How do I find out what is the version of the map in the GPS unit (seems to be quite outdated as even "Pavillion" shopping arcade is not in there)?

Many thanks.

Most likely the June 07 "open Map" version Prebundled by your vendor as you need to make min 2 contribution for the latest Feb 08 Gold Edition.

Go to Setting>Map>Map Info.

Why don't you start your contribution now...

Anyway welcome to Malsingmaps..

Blk POI is the the S'pore HDB POI (just like road poi) see http://www.malsingmaps.com/forums/viewt ... ?f=17&t=47

As for Maps uploaded with SendMap, its means that the map was uploaded to your Nuvi using Sendmap. I'm not sure what is the version however, as I said earlier, most likely June 2007 version since it was the last unlocked map.

Bro ivan1973, :welcome: to MSM.
I think you query should read : ''which version of (MSM) map in the GPSr''.
Most of the GPSr you buy from vendor if come with Malsing maps, it should be the free version which do't required unlocked code. If by any chance you purchased a GPSr completed with unlocked malsing map, most likely, and unfortunately, the map was cracked, which is unacceptable and unauthorised. :thumbsdown:
