Difference between 205W US and 205W MAL/SING

#11 Post by rogerv2 » Mon Oct 13, 2008 8:16 pm

Hi,

Can anyone confirm the only difference between the US and MAL/SING version of 205W is the memory and firmware?

I had a look at a MAL/SING version the other day and the resolution was not sharp as 200W US version.
Maybe my eyes is playing tricks on me or the brightness was set too high??

Any comments?

Hi, I just got one 205W from Caltex Station at $399.00 (with GST) with SIN/MAL pre-load into the unit, so far I'm happy on it.
Try it in Local with no problem & easy to use, will try it on Malaysia/Genting on this 25th oct.

Cheers.

yap ya right... us region nuvi no POIs show while navigating,ma/sing region showed....

but, mal/sing region nuvi got low SW version 2.10... many bugs, example like...

1. incorrect 'turn indicator'(Upper left corner) when come accross roundabout...
2. wrong distance prompt with using "British English Voice" .
= NO CONTRIBUTORS NO UPDATED MAP =

What is the story with local version of 205W with documented bugs and no fixes.
Does anyone have any input on this? What do the dealers here have to say about it?
What about Garmin?

garmin support team just refused to say anything about it...
they write down the local dealer name and ask us to contact them...
but, according to some of the msm bro... they say they know nt about technical thing...
i think just give up la.... wait and see how they play Tai Ji with us
