thanks for the breakdown :wink:

question:
1. garmin will know whether if its local set as we need the serial number to download garmin's version right? how about after we download for a localized unit, we transfer the data to a non localized unit, can it still work?
embedded firmware in set controls the function

2. whats CGS?
third party mapping software used by MfM

3. i tried to download from garmin website, but a check with garmin website, my serial number is an error?
does garmin give limited years of support for their localized sets?
Check with Garmin. We cannot commit on what, why, who, when on happenings in Garmin website

4. how can i manage 3 map sets from MFM, Garmin MFM, and Garmin SgMyMal map sets in a device?
Depending on model and firmware, maps can reside in main memory under Garmin defined terminology map file name (gmapprom.img, gmapprom1.img, gmapsupp.img etc... or in SD card /garmin ( gmapsupp.img ) or in SD card /map ( any user choice file name ) sub-folder. Use our search to locate threads that tells how this is done :-'

I tried MFM map sets and GARMIN MFM complied map sets

Both are ok, just that GARMIN MFM don't show CPOI and nearby POI.

BUT I realized that seeking road names, eg RIDLEY PARK, on the MFM data, we can search everything almost by name, typing most of the characters

BUT GARMIN MFM, some (or maybe all) road names must and can only search via address search only. Same goes with postal code, search via address search and it can help a little with matching word and postal code search

Here viewtopic.php?p=123970#p123970

Download the installer
Go buy an SD card
Create a sub folder /garmin in the SD card
Run the installer to generate map file gmapsupp.img
Put the map file into the sub folder /garmin in the SD card

Enjoy our map and please contribute error reporting and new POI. :tq:

I have just updated my mfm map from 2011.xx to CN SGMY NT 2012.40 from garmin.sg. I've read in this thread that these recent garmin maps support Lane Assist. Well, how do I enable that. I have tried doing simulation but both LA and JV are not displayed,,, unless I checked on City Navigator Sing/Malaysia NT 2011.10 as well along with CN SGMY NT above. Do I have to tick both maps for the LA & JV to work? :-?

Thanks in advance for your help.

sorry... i am using nuvi 2465. i downloaded the installer from http://www.garmin.com.sg/mapupdate/ so i think that is the latest version. no problem with installing. Serial no. --> unlock key verification went well.

I think you are right about the JCV file which I need to put it inside different folder instead of where the installer puts it.

UPDATE: I have checked the installation files in my nuvi and everything seems in order:-

Filename: gmapsupp.img
Date Mod: 27/12/2012 10:23 AM
Size: 62,712 KB
Path: MAIN:\map

Filename: SgMyMfre.JCV
Date Mod: 20/12/2012 3:02 PM
Size: 288,047 KB
Path: MAIN:\.System\JCV

The selected map in settings is as follow:

Attachment:
7925.png


But still, no Junction View and Lane Assist shown!!

BTW, the update file downloaded is malfree_201240_2465.exe (320 MB/327,850 KB)
And my nuvi is local set.
