Hi seriously need some help here :prayer: .. i bought my 205w from a friend yrs back and had not updated my map since then. Still running on malsing v2.30... :(

I tried downloading the NT maps but the device states that there is no map available.

What are the maps/ files that are required in the garmin directory?? i have 04 Disc image files, 02 XML files, 3 SUM files and 1 GCD file. Do I need all of these or i can delete them???

hi all,

please guide me. i would like to know on the copyright issue of the map produce by malsingmap. i want to know if i can use the map that i download here for commercial purpose.

For example, i download the map than i load it to my special application, not garmin or any gps device. the map is for my mapping application for tracking device.

so, do i need to pay amount of money or the map absolutely cannot be use for commercial purpose.

please advise. thanks a lot..

What device are you using ?

Please double confirm that you had actually deleted the old map and no other maps reside in your main memory / SD card.

It's my colleague's Nuvi 255W & the map "SGMYMAL.JCV" is inside the unit memory under the folder "JCV" now. For the SD card, sometimes I leave it inside & sometimes didn't cos it makes no different to me.

The file u loaded is a Junction View file, not a map file. Files in folder JCV are for Junction view function only :-'

Go to our download section and download our latest map 5.29NT. Unzip map file gmapsupp.img and place this to SD card/garmin directory.
