Hi jChin,

Thanks for the info, I'm really appreciate it.

I have a question. If I found an unmapped road... do I need to save the start point first and after that, how am I going to retrieve the whole road...?

I'm staying in Pekan Nanas and there are many many unmapped road in my area. I'm sure whether the latest version has it or not... But I believe my new home is a new housing development . So, to whom should I report and How can I save and later retrieve it from my Garmin 205W...?

I hope you understand y question and I do follow your instruction before I post his question.

And I found that the Garmin 205 W have some different from the way you demonstrate in the topic...

Rgds,
Wesley Loo

I am using Nuvi 200. On certain occasions, I notice that the car icon is on the wrong side of the road especially if the roads are very close together. This has caused the navigation to point me to a longer route to my final destination.

Does anybody know the reason behind this ? Is it due to the lower sensitivity/accuracy of the Nuvi 200 GPS receiver ?

Hi, wanted to ask this same question quite sometime ago and glad someone did prompt on this. I too am using Nuvi 200 and sometimes do get the car icon on the wrong side of the road. Usually. l will ignore it and after travelling some distances especially where l need to make some turns, the icon will keep to its right side of the road.

Any clues?

What map versions are you using? I used to get this problem but not recently. I checked with Sifu BernGPS
the routing seems ok in the mp files and in Mapsource. It is just probably the unit itself. What firmware are
you 2 guys using?

Hi Guys,
I'm unbale to find 'Jalan Awan Jawa'. I tried keying in 'Awan' or 'Jawa' in the spell name/address section but it said 'no matches found'. But Jalan Awan Jawa does appear in the map when i drove to that road. How come? I'm using malsing maps 2.30.

Hi Bartmp8

I'm using Nuvi 200, firmware version 5.0, map version 2.30b. Spoke to some who are using this map version but not Nuvi 200 and they told me they too face this problem "sometimes". Another problem l face is that the unit will prompt "recalculating" a few times. The unit seemed to be "lost".

Any idea on how to solve this problems?

Thanks in advance. :D
