Hi all,

I too bought my GPS from the US and have copied the Malaysia map to the Garmin folder. However, my GPS still showing the US map (which i have deleted and replaced with the Malaysia map).

Can anybody help? Many thanks in advance :)

It is probably still showing the base map. Go out to the clear blue sky to have satellite lock.

@waykengliew,

I assume it's a Nuvi? If so, can you also check that the installed map is listed at Nuvi's Map Info?

BTW, which model is it? If your Nuvi is a 4-digit model, the map folder is not \Garmin folder, but \Map folder. Thus if yours is a 4-digit model Nuvi and you place a supplementary IMG map file in Nuvi:\Garmin folder, Nuvi will not recognize it.
I take everything in moderation, including moderation.

Hi all,

It works now, I have a Nuvi 4-digit model, there wasn't a "map" folder at first. I created it and copied Malaysia map to it and it works now!

Thank you very much all :)

For Garmin 1xxx series, map label in file name of your choice to reside in Main Memory /Map or SD card /Map sub-directory :-'

To perform a Reset on the nuvi 1xxx series:

Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power
1. Touch and continue to hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger and power the unit ON
2. Release the power button when the device powers ON. You will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
3. Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
4. Touch Yes

Hi,

Just bought a 1350 from US. \:D/
Is it normal that MSM NT v5.02 cannot search by postal code ?
Tried using MSM NT 2010.20, no issue with postal code.
Thanks :thumbsup:
