Am I ok if I just leave the img file in a folder named garmin? or do I need to leave it in a folder named map?

For 255W, you are correct in that map file gmapsupp.img is kept in /garmin directory of SD card.

Looks like yours is a case for Dr.Garmin. In Sin their distributor is either Navicomm Technology or Allbright or you can email to Garmin Taiwan direct

Thanks for the suggestion, I just called them a few minutes ago. Repair is possible, but at a "small" cost (admin cost $60 n repair cost $150).

Try my luck and ask if they are still have the IT promotion fair price, but it is over. So I guess I have to start looking for another GPS unit. Any recommendation?

Thanks all for the excellent help. I really appreciate it. :prayer:

One last thing, any one need a GPS paper weight? If not I will keep in the car and use it as ballistic weapon to throw at thugs if I do encounter any on my road trip. :axe:

Cheers

GPS: Garmin Nuvi 255WT
Dear Senior Bro Administrator

I owned a Nuvi 255WT but a US Version (with the default US-Canada map pre-loaded) as I had lived and worked in the US before coming back. So mine is a NON-Localized Nuvi 255WT (traffic receiver)

Now that I am settled back to Singapore - I just managed to discover this great website with lots of Info. I just narrowed my search as I was looking for a Singapore and Malaysia map.

Is the MSM 513 version the correct one for me to load into a SD Card for my US Nuvi 255WT?

Thanks !

Unless the MSM v5.16 shares the same file name as your other 2 maps, which is not the case here, then it will not have any effect on your others maps.

Just to add to Bro Redstorm's comment, I have the same Nuvi and also two other SIN/MAL maps in the main memory. I have the MSM v5.16 in the SD card.

And there is no problem.....the main thing is that I only select one of the map to use. If you use all three maps together, of course they will "argue" and "quarrel" with each other when all three come to a same location but have different idea ofof the next road to take. :mrgreen:

In other words, there should only be one "King" in the nuvi at all times. :lol:
