Thank You for the information.
I have tried your suggestion:
1. Turn GPS Off (In Door Simulate routing mode)
2. Set location at Brisbane Airport.
3. I can search through POIs and Simulate routing.
4. When I try to do street search, however, it says that there is no Map Data Available.

What does this mean? Is this what you meant by the map is not compiled for street search?
Any pointers on how to find street searchable map for Queensland?

Thanks again for your help. :tq:

Cheers,

IMHO I suspect that the OSM Queensland map does not have address data so you can't search for things. You can only display the map and your position on the screen.

Singapore topo map available here via this link : http://gpsmaps.jwpixs.com/

Put it either in /garmin directory or /map directory :-k
You will save a lot of "grief" by putting it in SD card /garmin or /map directory :-'

Hi !!!

Thanks for your reply.

I downloaded SGTopo.zip from the website.
Do i only load the img file in /map/ folder?

When I turn it on, how do i access the map?
Is there settings i still need to activate?

Many thanks.

Just load map file name gmapsupp.img into SD card/map
Turn on unit and access MainMenu and look for map menu and "check" box
By default new maps are already selected
