The tunnels which 7x5T able to track without 'satellite signal lost' error is Penchala Link and tunnel near Jelapang at North South Highway. Other than that, such as SMART tunnel and Karak Highway tunnel, 7x5T showed "Lost Satellite signal" dialog after around 1 km. inside the tunnel.

Looks like in this significant area, Garmin has still not improved. I used TomTom before. When it enters a tunnel and loses satellite signal, the display will grey out but navigation continues based on the projected route and speed. Not accurate but at least it gets you out of the tunnel at the correct exit. Is there a new Nuvi model that does something like this? If not the 7x5T, then which series?

Congratulation... ianazlan, and welcome to the 7x5 club :)

Yes, 7x5 cannot shows certain customized POI icons, and quite plain during navigation. But, this is my first GPS, I have not much problem with it.

If I have a chance/ :$gone: I might grab this one :) Or just wait for Garmin release it's firmware to 7x5T.

hi folks, i have been doing some read up on nuvi 755T, a quick question. how accurate is the Text to Speech pronunciation?
E.g.
Kg Java should pronounce as kampong java not kilogram java

Anyone has encounter on this?

thanks

I believe that until and unless there is a localised English voice for this part of the world, current voice packs for Nuvi will always think "Kg" is "kilogram" and will not be able to pronounce names such as "Telok Kurau". It is not a case of the TTS being inaccurate. Just that it is a ang moh TTS.

Hi, I am new to this forum but own a 755T. Now resident in US and got this unit online at very....very attractive price during Christmas promotion. Would be returning to Malaysia in summer and would like to have the Mal/Sig map in my unit.

Do have a few questions to ask, can the map run on version 3.1 software? Can I keep the US map and download the Mal/Sig map on a SD card?

As long as your gps brand is GARMIN , u can use our free maps

better prepare a SD card

Thanks. I have downloaded and the map file is indicated on the map screen list. I guess I only able to see the map function when I reach home. Another question. To function the Mal-Sig map, what I need to do is deactivate the North America map and activate the Mal-Sig map, right. Will the text voice and traffic function?
