Re: How to install map to my GPS

I did a reset (hold at top right hand corner when switching on) with the SD card out.
The favourites are still in the Nuvi but the Malsing map is now not in Nuvi, only the preloaded US and Europe map.

I will use the Garmin map in US and put back the SD card when I am back.

Re: Garmin Nuvi BT series questions...

Oh thanks... :(

That's indeed bad news :hair:

I'm guessing it's the phone's issue. The BT stack might not have the option of multiple connections option. I remember read some brochures saying that some headsets allow multiple pairing (2 x phone with 1 x headset). If only it can be the other way round.

Saw quite a few Nuvi model selling very cheap in eBay US. (example Nuvi 660 selling RM1.2k (shipping cost included) while in Malaysia maybe RM2k+) =P~

Would like to ask if anyone bought a unit through eBay before? can tell me which "seller" do you bought it from?

...will have more confident to do business with them more if ppl here can share their buying experience

below are some of the price I tagged on eBay, refurbished unit? any problem with buy them?

Please do share your buying experience at eBay...

One consideration is the hassle of returning the GPSr to US for any defective claim.

Nuvi 205/255W improvements over 200/250W
- Faster 333Mhz processor (using new ST Micro Cartesio chipset)
- Shaded Relief map
- Qwerty or ABC keyboard layout
- 1000 waypoints vs 500 previously
- Hotfix satellite prediction for faster lock
- Where Am I feature
- MSN direct/FM traffic compatible (not relevant in SG)
- Geolocated Picture capability
- Improved screen layout
- Physical size same but lighter: 147.42gm vs previous 172.93gm

255W features not found in 205W (same as 260W over 200W)
- Full map of USA
- Speak street names

Drawback of new models:
- Shorter battery life 4hrs vs 5hrs of 200/250W, maybe due to faster processor ?

Thanks for the heads up info.

I read it this morning from an email but it did not have the specifics as what you posted.

Dear all,

I am in urgent need to buy a Garmin Nuvi that can download latest Malsingmaps from time to time.

I do not need the extra perks in a Nuvi - the most basic one will do (equivalent to TomTom GB)

Pls Pls Pls give me advice on which model will suit to my need and if there is a link of instructions that I can follow to download and install Malaysia and Singapore map to my Gamin Nuvi model.

Thank you thank you very much for all the help. :prayer: :prayer:
