MSM 4.40 vs MSM NT5.03

#211 Post by uniteen » Sat Nov 27, 2010 12:07 pm

When comparing MSM 4.4 to MSM NT 5.03, what does the "NT" mean? Does it contain the map for the whole of Malaysia?

To me NT means New technology. All our maps includes Malaysia (Peninsula, Sarawak, Sabah & Labuan),
Singapore and Brunei (BSB & KB).

The previous MSM 4.xx series maps were compiled using the third party cgpsmapper compiler whereas the current MSM NT 5.xx maps are now compiled using the Garmin compiler. The Garmin compiler can add more features like JCV and LA and it also allows for future incorporation of other features. All these features are not possible using the cgpsmapper compiler.

Hi to all Seniors,

I'm new to this forum.

I have inherited a Garmin nuvi 1250 from a friend. I'm totally new to this. Can I ask how to update the map and also how to check what firmware and which map version is my GPS currently installed with?

Some advice to me will be much appreciated. Thanks very much.

Ivan
:tq:

To check your firmware version, at the home page of your device, > Tools > Settings > System >About. Go to the Sg Garmin website to check if there is any latest firmware update for your device. As for the map, > Tool > Settings > myMaps. It will show you all the maps that are loaded in your device. For the latest MSM v5.21 map, download from here -
http://www.malsingmaps.com/forums/viewt ... 36#p191236. As for the preloaded Garmin CN map and MSM NT map, please verify with the Sg Garmin website.
