Franky speaking if this upgrade applies to local set only and does not applies to those US/Europe set, I do not see any reason to be happy [-X about it bcose mine is US version. and i cannot upgrade the formware. Based on the poll conducted by the MSM admin in Feb (I think), more than 40% of set belong non-local set.

Not to stir shit here [-( , Garmin Singapore maybe are just making use of MSM map to boost its local/regional sale figures against the losing battle between the Parallel importers.

Of course it is good to have Garmin to have MSM map recogonised, but do hope MSM is not taken for a free ride [-X too.


There are 2 channels of map distribution, 3 if you include new buyers who purchase the 255Ws. Nuvi owners who own local sets (Asian) now, will be able to download the NT maps through the Garmin website very very soon. Unlock codes will be issued by Garmin FOC.

Those with imported Nuvis and other GPSs - they have another channel to get the NT maps. How and where .. the announcement will come. Just sabar a bit longer .. :wink:

I should clarify : the firmware that supports Junction View are only available in the latest models. I do not think there will be a firmware update for the older Nuvis. Very much like Mapking R10, R12, R17 - you want the feature, you have to get the new model.

i must admit i didn't do enough reading before I bought.
the huge Garmin advertisement board over their store had me believing they are the authorised dealer.
don't know if its a PI set, its made in Taiwan.
