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.



Yes you can. This is what I do. :thumbsup:

Just bought tis device today, i compare with my nuvi 1350, notice tat the screen is a bit yellowish and not as bright enough as nuvi 1350, another thing is the battery life is bit short(eventhough i hv turn off the bluetooth), other than tat all is fine . :thumbsup:

Use MFM own map generator rather than MapSource.


Still doesn't work for me, despite excluding the polygons (i.e. at certain zoom levels, map disappears).

the main problem on Nuvi 4 digit (1xxxx, 2xxxx, 3xxxx) series is... not 100% compatible with old nuvi (3figit) format map.
the 4 digit nuvi firmware needs new NT format, whereas mfm's map compiled with 3'rd party cgpsmap compiler.

its not stable but can still be used :-'

Been using MFM on my 3900. Initially got a lot of problems loading MFM but worked out the problems through Garmin firmware update and workaround with MFM map. Now quite stable. Got me everywhere I want to go and took me back home via MFM. :thumbsup:
