Re: Converting Nuvi 255W US Firmware to MAL/SIN Firmware

I don't know why the update insists that we delete the TTS voice files before the update. Any way, this is what I did: 1. rename the voice folder to something else, eg. _voice_ 2. Use winrar to extract GUPDATE.GCD to the garmin folder of the unit 3. reboot and the unit will update itself to 2.80 4....

Re: Nuvi 255W

I just bought from Challenger yesterday @ S$349 (member price) where is normal price is S$359. Eastgear sells at S$329 at their website I was quick amazed at the margins for the GPS sold in SG.

Re: Converting Nuvi 255W US Firmware to MAL/SIN Firmware

Are you sure you are using British & Australian voices on your Sg/My unit? Please verify. From what we know and from what I experienced, British English TTS voice is not compatible with SG/MY firmware and will brick the unit. Actually I have Karen_Australia voice on my converted set. I used the...

Re: Converting Nuvi 255W US Firmware to MAL/SIN Firmware

I guess I'll follow drsec's advice by enjoying the device 1st...who knows LA and JV is not that significant afterall \:D/ Actually I agree with drsec. Enjoy your set first. I actually converted my set as well. Initally, the JV was fun to look at. But after awhile, I realised that it is difficult to...
