This appears to be inherent with Nuvis, even with the 2xx series... :-?


This also happened to my Nuvi2360 but I thought it was a loose connection.

Agreed on the lock in speed - very fast indeed, within 5-10 seconds, and complete road address and coordinates given.


U try exclude the polygon & tick custom when generated the gmapsupp maps.
Don't choose full.

I think it can solve the problem. My friends use 3790 also have this problem. After tick exclude polygon & custom. The problem is solve. Maybe 2465 is same.


Tried already, but problem still remains. I notice this happens when zooming in. At some point in the zoom-in, the map will disappear. Then all you need to do is zoom-out one step and you'll get back the map. Of course this can't be done while driving! I'll just have to live with it until Garmin comes up with a patch, hopefully. Since this happens only on mfm maps and not msm maps, it might take a long time for this issue to be addressed. With the nu2465, each map has it's own problems. I finally have to agree with my wife that: "You cannot rely on the Garmin all the time one. You have to look where you are going and have some sense of direction." *sigh* How humiliating to be proven wrong about the reliability of technology. :oops:

+1 for disappearing roads on Nuvi 2465.

I will try the "exclude polygon + custom" hint and report back.

I have only MFM Maps and 2 MFM POIs selected and both City NT/MSM NT are deselected.

Does anyone have an MFM+2465 configuration that is working - no roads disappearing during nav?
Can you tell me what options you use in generating gmapsupp.img?
Did you use MapSource to upload or MFM generator?

Tks.

No. After the gmapsupp.img has been generated, I manually transfer it from my PC to the Map Folder in the SDCard.

Just to weigh in on the somewhat similar problems I encountered with the 2465, which I bought in Sg on the first day of its release in the market. It came with the Garmin CN and MSM NT maps preloaded. I loaded the MFM map and started encountering some of the problems described by you guys here. With the MFM, the first thing I noticed is that simulating any route using eitherGarmin CN or MSM NT map is affected as the car icon keeps rotating round and round and never seem to be able to move along the selected route. I resolved the problem thru trial and errors, by deleting one map at a time, to see what was affecting the simulation problem. Without the MFM map, the simulation on both Garmin CN and MSM NT maps seem to work well without the problem described earlier.

With the MFM map installed, problem like route disappearing happened not only to MFM map but also the MSM NT map. By removing the MFM map, using either the Garmin CN or MSM NT map, there has not been any problem of disappearing route when used either in SG or MY. So, the view by some a few that Garmin or MSM produced lousy map which disappeared during navigation does not hold any water, if my own "tinkering" is anything to go by. My own conclusion is that this model seem to have some sort of conflict when used with any third party map (using cgpsmapper compiler). Even the inclusion of Jerome Wee's map, which is also considered a third party map, also produced the same problem. I have highlighted this problem, when used with third party map, to Garmin Twn, thru our local distributor, and hopefully they will rectify the problem with a new firmware update.

Just to share.

Mine is a Nuvi 2350 from US and it has been loaded with both MFM, and MSM but only checked MFM. I have never encountered those problems such as routing or disappearing roads...etc.

Furthermore I have also Jerome's map of the Singapore Straits loaded, and everything is still ok.

sharing with u guys :) Free pedestrian & public transport navigation from Garmin®

Free pedestrian & public transport navigation from Garmin®

Singapore/ June 1, 2011 - Garmin Corporation, a unit of Garmin Ltd., the global leader in satellite navigation, announced with summer around the corner and bright sunshine in the sky, sometimes it makes sense to walk instead of getting in your car. Avoiding the jams and crowds by taking shortcuts through green parks, jumping on buses or tubes and strolling through picturesque pedestrian zones, cityXplorer™ can be quicker and more pleasant than driving. If you’re visiting a new city for work, a short break or long summer holiday it is even more important that you can find your way around without always relying on the car.

That’s why this summer Garmin is offering a free cityXplorer™ map, for pedestrian navigation, including information such as when and where to catch buses and tubes*, for customers buying a compatible Garmin GPS from June 1st – September 30th 2011.

cityXplorer™ maps give you the confidence to navigate your way around an unfamiliar city and travel like a local. The enhanced pedestrian mode gives you walking directions including footpaths and shortcuts – places you wouldn’t be accessing while in your car. They also tell you bus and train connections, and give you public transport timetables to help avoid long waits (dependent on the city).

If you’re not sure whether it’s quicker for you to travel with or without your car, cityXplorer™ can provide an estimated time of arrival. If you’re somewhere unfamiliar, on holiday or for business, cityXplorer™ can be invaluable, helping you choose the best method of transport for you.

cityXplorer™ maps are available for cities in Europe, North America and around the world and are easy to download from Garmin’s website.

If you want to make the most of the summer and get out in the fresh air, you can rely on cityXplorer™ to guide you to your destination, however you travel. With the city of your choice in the palm of your hand, you will always know where you’re going.

Tks - my 2465 SG/MY is working again with "Exclude Polygons".
Use MFM own map generator rather than MapSource.
The roads are not disappearing anymore. :-'

Have not tested the Simulation problem reported by RedStorm.

Question about Singapore Postal Code:

Can you use City NT to locate by postal code, it will then appear in "Recently Found";
then disable City NT and switch to MFM for the navigation?
Thinking of this as a workaround if MFM doesn't have the postal code, but I prefer its navi.
