bro ketanitem,

i know how you feel man. This is crap! The way they do it, is for supporting chinese text display.

Can you write to Garmin to see if they can have some updates that can display english text properly on the GN-52 China version?


Now, I get it ... since it's for china market, then the allignment is like that. I actually got the s/w update
from local distributor here (prev. s/w version 2.0, now it's 2.1)..but still the same.
Do you think I can upgrade with the international firmware?

thanks.

i don't think so. You must write to Garmin (China/Taiwan) to request for a proper english display support.

Yes, the font display differently with the firmware for chinese text.

I flashed my 76CS with the firmware for 60CS meant for Taiwan market sometimes back. The malsing maps' font was like what you encountered.

After I flashed my 76CS back with the original firmware, the font display is back to normal.

If you are gung ho enough, you can try to flash your GVN with a firmware meant for international market.

I wonder what will happen if I flash it and thing goes wrong? Can I reflash it back again
to the "original" firmware? Has somebody done it before? Care to share the story?
