What is a satellite lock ? I am still able to select " View Map " and it gives me the correct position while i am driving , the only issue I have is that it couldn't route from A to B hence can't give me any directions.



Bro younster, your problem is really one for the X-files. ](*,)

A GPS does not discriminate cross borders across different countries.

Question : Does your really work in Klang, Malaysia ? :-?

All the diagnosis points to a possible faulty GPS ... :-k :-'

If you can show your GPS to one of the Sifu in Singapore, it can very quickly be determined if it is an operational or configurational issue or your set needs to go into ICU.

Unfortunately you are too far from Penang for me to help.

I was wondering....why the error occurs?

And if I read this issue correctly, it could means that he is routing from two saved POIs or to a saved POI from his current position.

I do know that sometimes the exact location of POI on the map could put it out of alignment after the map is updated. So maybe, he could try reacquiring the POI from the map again and see if the routing error would still occurs.

Ace, sounds very logical , i always route from present location to POI in the map.

How do I reacquire the POI from the map again ?

What bro ace means is to navigate from-to an embedded POI in map vs personal POIs in "favourites of Nuvi"
For example Fullerton Hotel ( N1.28611 E103.85279 ) to Park Royal Hotel Beach Road ( N1.30014 E103.86048 )

Sometimes if a POI is placed too far from a road, this could cause the error as what you experienced.

In simple terms....

Don't use the POI that you have saved in your Favourites.

Look for another Point of Interest in the new map or search for a familiar POI in the new map. And route to the new POI and see if the error occurs again.
