Hi Everyone,

Need some help. I am using Nuvi1350, i bought the unit locally some time back but could not seem to get a unlock code from the Garmin Singapore website.
Anyway, i downloaded from the below link under Garmin User B and manage to unlocked the map with my Unit ID, created a MAP folder in my 1350 (i got no SD card slot)
http://www.malsingmaps.com/forums/viewt ... 23#p153923
The strange thing is that i cannot seem to find the original map file on my 1350, so i guess i have 2 maps on my device. Here's what i see:
Malsingmaps Malaysia/Singapore/Brunei NT 2011.30
[1] MSM RC3
[2] MSM
City Navigator Singapore/Malaysia NT 2009.31

Everything seems to be working when i uncheck the NT2009.31 but my GPS seems to hang quite oftenly when calculating route, it always gets stuck at 80%.

Is MSM and MSM RC3 trying to work together and causing issues? Do i need to get rid of my original map file first? If so, where can i find it?

I think the first thing you should tell us is how many maps have you ticked under myMaps setting? It should have only one map ticked/selected.

Hi Eddie,
Where did you got that RC3 build anyway? That version only released for mappers to test and got bugs that need to be addressed. Please download the official release from garmin.com.sg.

Hi muhammadshahrul,

1. Please download the map from HERE.
2. Extract the gmapsupp.img from the zip files to Garmin folder of your E71 (usually installed in your microSD card).
3. Ignore product.jvc files since your model does not support junction view.

i am trying to generate unlock code from http://www.garmin.com.sg/mapupdate/4community

It prompted Invalid ID or passcode. Please try again.

i am using the username and password i am login to this forum and put in Unit ID on Garmin 255.

Is there step that i have missed?
