Yup, that's what you need to do. So I used gmapprom1.img, gmapsupp.img & gmapoem. (please see the topic under garmin maps)

Since I used the gmapsupp.img in GPSr memory for the MSM My-Sin maps, my SD card is now empty and is ready to load some other mapset there (using gmapsupp.img).

I've tried this and it works. So I don't need to linl the East Malaysia maps with the Singapore ones by sendmap20/Patchimg as that'll lsoe the address function in the latest release of the Gold edition Malsingmaps.


Wow... Interesting!

In order for that to work, gotta name the additional maps as either gmapprom1.img, gmapoem.img and install in the main memory?

While MSM's mysin map remain the name as gmapsupp.img and let it resides in the SD card?


Thanks in advance :thumbsup:

i stored my "AXN stations, ERP Gantries, and Speedtrap" in a POI sub-folder in my SD card. During the initial boot up, my 200W will prompt me whether to upload these new POIs into the system memory. After which, these "gpi" files are automatically created in the "POI" folder in the "EXTRA" menu. It can store more than 1 "gpi" files.

:wink:

Just a newbie user to 200W, some questions here.
1.Will the map come up with a close up instruction shot when it approaching a turn likes it appears when u press the right bottom corner? Last time I used Garmin Q with my PDA with Malsing map, it will automatically pop up when a detail turn instruction before a turn.
2. Is there anyway way to display the speed and distance to destination information on the screen when u are navigating?
I understand when u press the left bottom key it will bring up all the information like speed and distance travelled, but I think it will be more useful where it could display together on the navagation map..

Thanks

Nope, not when navigating. When you're just drving around, then yes.
