GPS is making me go a merry-go-round tour

#1 Post by bropearl » Mon Feb 06, 2012 3:00 pm

Hi Peeps,

Just bought the Garmin 2465 dec last year, was very happy with the set and functions but lately, I have noticed that when I need to go some places, it make me go one big round b4 reaching the place I need to go.

Example, I wanted to go from Paya lebar to Kallang area. I was made to go by hougang ave3, batley rd, lorine rd.. :-? :-? then some how reach china town area :-? :-? ...Haiz....but I managed to find the place myself.
**Forgive me if I get the rd names wrong..... :rolleyes:

It's about 7-8KM from Paya Lebar to Kallang area but the GPS make me go around about 30km ](*,)

Thinking of sending it for servicing. Think the GPS has gone bonkers. :cry:
Anyone has similar issues? please share.

Thanks

Thanks for your prompt help, jusbella. mine is set at fastest time, but for the avoidance is for traffic and toll center. does that make a difference. I've checked the custom avoidance, all disabled.... I think may need to remove traffic....but I am using the live traffic cable :-k

Which map are you using? The malsing or the garmin, you need to select only one, need not to select more than one, it will cause confusion to the device. Alternatively, you may have a corruptted map, try to re install it. Hope this help. :wink:

Thanks Singawon, Wow, Map corrupted can still be used? Hmm....another option I should take after testing the above changes I have made. I use only one map, The Malsing map instead of the nuvi map.

Hope this helps me solve the problem :thumbsup:

I'm lazy to revert back to old version of map.

Don't see any issue on the current map.

Can you try to update your map and see if the problem is still there?

MSM 2011.40 is out already.
