Mmm...I think you have the same problem as bro trajet2b is facing, delete and uninstall your GMXT, load in the new version, can accept more than 1 gpi, tested and confirm.... :mrgreen:

see here viewtopic.php?p=36885#p36885
I am using the new version......40W... OK.. I'll uninstall all and reload again ....


Does anyone else face what Waypoint is facing ? ie.. an upper limit for number of gpi files ? cheers.
Look on the bright side ya? :muak:

Anyone knows where I can get the nuvi 350 in Singapore? Can't seem to find any info on this in the forum. (And approx price, if you happen to know.)

Thanks.

Try making a trip to the SimLim Tower and look for Hoan Enterprise on 1st Floor...I think, and seeing its a nice weather there for a Tuesday afternoon, making it just a half hour before closing...you may get a bargain with Mr Yeo... the "uncle" running the biznuz there... goodluck! :mrgreen:

Hi Triton,

Having owned a plain vanilla 300 and meddled with a TTS-enabled 300, I can only say that I am glad that I was not swayed by the TTS and got the bug-infested TTS-enabled version(no offense, guys).

You have done your research well and may even want to look into it further at GPSPassions' Nuvi forums at - http://www.gpspassion.com/forumsen/foru ... RUM_ID=172.

Looking at your handle, I presume you're driving one?

BR,

For local usage where you are familiar with roads, you probably do not need TTS. Some may even find TTS annoying. But when you are in US/Canada, where I just spent 3 weeks driving around (and you indicated you will be going), TTS is really, really useful. A combination of jet lag, insufficient sleep, driving on the "wrong" side on unfamiliar and totally dark roads in winter conditions require you to keep your eyes peeled on the road. There is little or no time to keep checking the Nuvi display, which you can afford to do locally.

Instead of "In 300 metres, turn right", you get "In 300 metres, turn right at Exit 274A to Highway One East towards Pike Street". What do you think?

Tks guys for the comments/feedback.. I have already gotten the China version nuvi 300 with TTS awhile back. I like it alot.. :thumbsup: TTS is very useful IMO although pronunciation of certain local road names can sometimes be hilarious :rolleyes: I installed the British Male voice pronunciation and find it to be closer to our "local style". So far no serious issue with the firmware and I have not updated it either.
