If you're using Malfree (this site's map), do not tick Malsing and Navteq as well.

Having all three Malfree/Malsing/Navteq selected confuses the software and may have affected the display. Untick and see for yourself.

By default, any map updates done will result it in being enabled. You have to manually decide to use or not to use map

The map shown in the screen shot is from 2013.20 Navteq ALL, uncheck it will show MCE.
The TPE junction of CTE & SLE is not in 2014.30-Malfree ALL yet.
