Yeah ! It is very cool if they upgrade your GPS to speak which lane to drive on to because we don't have the lane assist thingy .

If you have a lane you'd like us to put in Lane Assist, just holler.

Unlock Your Nuvi's Potential !

#303 Post by aminpro » Sun Dec 06, 2009 11:17 pm

Here's something that i want to share with you guys. I've tried a search and nothing such as Garmin Mobile PC is in this forum. Sorry if there is....
Anyway, if your Nuvi is not powerful enough like mine :P Use your computer's power instead !
Here you can also see the satellite status that cannot be done on the nuvi 200.

The stats interface is also nice !

We can also record tracks! Well... we can record it too but this one doesn't need any patch lol :P

All i can say that it will turn your Nuvi into a top line GPS interface !
You can also open up your google earth and start tracking LIVE !

Here is the instructions:

Download:
http://franson.com/gpsgate/ -GPSgate
http://www8.garmin.com/support/download ... sp?id=4049 -Garmin Mobile PC

Install GPSgate.
To install Garmin PC, you have to use winrar or other similar software to extract it and run MAIN.msi

Connecting your GPS to PC:
1.Turn on your nuvi.
2. Get to diagnostic mode by holding the battery icon
3. Connect USB cable
4. Exit diagnostic mode
5. Run GPSgate
6. On GPSgate setup wizard, check box "Search for Garmin USB devices" then click next
7. On the next menu check box "I want to share my GPS between several application" and click next
8. Click finish
9. Run your Garmin Moblie PC and click Trial version
10. Your GPS is connected and you can play with the interface now !

NOTE: The software works just like your garmin. Go to the folder where the software is installed and you can add POI and stuffs like that. Maps can be send via mapsource. Mapsource will treat the software as a device

Anyway, don't try to find my house using that coordinates, it's simulated LOL :nehneh:

Got the map running and simulating from my house to somewhere ! COOL !!! Now i can really use my Nuvi 200 Just like a Top model Nuvi! The POI search is really fast and easy ! :thumbsup:

So far only MSM MYSG V4.02 beta..... Can't install Malsingmaps NT cuz the installer won't detect. Tried to extract the map manually but failed :(

GPS device based on Windows CE & Mobile XT

#304 Post by atah » Mon Dec 07, 2009 11:09 am

There are some GPS units currently available in the market using Windows CE & Mobile XT platform and selling at much cheaper price than Nuvi 205. Any idea whether these units will perform on par with Nuvi 205, in term of satellite locking speed and re-routing speed?

I'm currently using my PDA phone and found that it's very slow, so it might be the same with those using Windows CE & Mobile XT?

Thanks

How do I see the coordinates in a saved waypoint

#307 Post by ivan1973 » Thu Dec 10, 2009 6:54 pm

How do I see the coordinates in a saved waypoint in the gps unit? Assuming I am not using mapsource. There are times where I would like to just share the waypoint to another person who has gps. Please advise.

No better way I guess. Purely manual without using laptop or PC. Here is what I always do even though quite tedious and time consuming.

1. On your unit, set to GPS off by pressing Tools>Settings>System>GPS Mode>GPS Off.
2. Press OK and press back few times until you reach the main menu.
3. Press Where to>Favourites>All Favourites and then choose the waypoint that you have saved assuming in Favourites.
4. Press Map and then Set Loc. This will bring your location to this waypoint.
5. Press Back few times to go to Main Menu.
6. Press Tools>Where Am I will show you "My Location" with the coordinates of your waypoint.

Good luck.

Is it possible to download MSM Maps into Non SG/MY unit?

#310 Post by baileyng » Tue Dec 15, 2009 9:33 pm

Hi bros, I came across another unit of Non SG/MY unit (Thailand) but this time the model is 205W. This time I managed to get some info from that unit. The software version is 5.3, Audio Version is 2.0, GPS SW Version is 3.10b.

My question :
1. Is it possible to download MSM NT Map into this unit?? (Currently the maps inside are Taiwan (gmapprom) and Thailand (gmapprom1).

Since the owner is a Malaysian, the seller installed MFM map into her unit (gmapsupp). Since I cannot see Garmin units any MSM maps, I called her to get an SD card and I've installed MSM Ver 4.04 into her SD card (gmapsupp also). Please advice.

p/s: again, this is not my unit, OK? :lol:
