I even tried copying directly into the /.system folder. The map does not load!

There's nothing wrong with the way I'm doing it coz as I mentioned before I also loaded it on my 285W & that's working perfectly :-k

For 2465, the map file gmapsupp.img needs to be put in SD card/garmin as what Bro Redstorm advised in his earlier thread.
Alternatively, you can also put it in SD card /map directory. Advantage of putting map file in this directory, you are free to rename the file to any name you want to ie... MSM NT Sin-Mal

As a newbie, I suggest you do not "trial n error" adding / modifying files into main memory. Nuvi is VERY unforgiving to data corruption, especially map files and you will end up with a glorified paperweight :-'

Is there a problem in the latest map. I followed the same step as I did the last time. But this time, I don't seem to see the junction view at the any junction. Can anyone help please?

Hi,

Anyone know how to make Nuvi 205W to support MSM 2012 NT map?
Or this model cannot support this type of map?

Thanks.

Brother SilverBeauty, I have completely missed that out. Must be excitement of updating the new map as the previous one has a lot of flaws. So can I combine the new map with an old JCV file? Please advise.

Cannot as Map and JCV file are a matched pair.
