And they will have to be placed into your nuvi internal memory named 'Garmin', create another folder named as 'vehicle'.
Now copy your *.srf files into this folder (-vehicle).
And try to see if you can select a different vehicle under the Map settings.


Thnx, will try again. BTW, also unable to transfer files for HDB blk/postal code, Speedcam, Voices. Abv also must save unit internal memory or can put in SDcard?? Tried in SDcard, but failed.


Thnx edgarchen. Solved vehicle prob now.
But rest of files still an issue.

The custom POIs files *.gpi should be placed into the internal Garmin memory, you will have to create another folder named 'poi'. Transfer all *gpi files into this 'poi' folder.
To access to custom POIs, you have to select All Point-of-Interest, then Custom POIs.
