Hi All

I'm new to all this SG maps updates as I was away from SG for 7 years and since now that I'm back for good, I need to have a SG map. I have a few questions that I hope some PROs here can answer for me.

The GARMIN NUVI model that I bought from Taiwan is 1450 which I know is not available in SG and basically it came with the Taiwan NT 2011.40 map.

My Question is:
1) Is there a difference between this 2 latest version of the SG maps, NT 2011.40 (a EXE file which can be downloaded from GARMIN SG) and MSM 2012 NT v5.49 (from here MALSING website) ? Or are they actually the same maps?

2) [a]Is is advisable to install the NT 2011.40 (from GARMIN SG) which is a EXE file and overwrite my current files in my NUVI 1450 which has all the Taiwan maps and settings.

Or just make life a bit easy and just copy the latest MSM 2012 NT v5.49 into the SD card and that will solve my problem.

I just afraid by running the EXE file from the Garmin website will screw up the GPS.

Any kind of reply will be gladly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

- NT 20xx.xx are the maps compiled by Garmin while NT v5.xx compiled by MSM using Garmin compiler. NT 20xx.xx using 3 months older data. NT 5.xx is compiled weekly thus the map is more up to date

2) (a)Is is advisable to install the NT 2011.40 (from GARMIN SG) which is a EXE file and overwrite my current files in my NUVI 1450 which has all the Taiwan maps and settings.
- you can install NT 2011.40 into your device but you won't be able to utilise Junction view image (JCV) just because the map JCV only can be displayed for MY/SG region device market

(b)Or just make life a bit easy and just copy the latest MSM 2012 NT v5.49 into the SD card and that will solve my problem.
- much more easier and up to date data. :D

I just afraid by running the EXE file from the Garmin website will screw up the GPS.
