I've downloaded the MSM MY/SG/BN NT Map v5.15 into the micro sd and inserted it into the 2465 but doesn't seems to work for me. Is there any way for me to see those details on my map?
Sorry as I'm very new to GPS. Pls advise. :tq:

Create a directory /map directory in your SD card and put the map file there. Rename the map file to any file name you want.

In your earlier post, you already mentioned you have downloaded the v5.15 map which is the latest map here, and therefore it should have the latest details.

I suspected that your settings in not set to see the most details of the map...you probably need to go to the map info setting and select "Detailed" view or something like that......in other words, you need to check your nuvi's map setting first....

Tks for ur reply. Yup. I've got the v5.15 map but it can't see the blk number on the map. I've also noticed that the JCV doesn't appear or 2465 could'nt support it. As for the map setting, I've put the Map view in 'Detailed' mode.

MSM5.15 got "limited" JCV images but map is more updated.

You want JCV, use the preloaded Garmin NavTeq map. All bells and whistles available.

Use only one map at one time. You will get "weird" results with multiple maps active .. :-'

Block numbers not visible in NT maps :cry:
