Hi,

I bought a US 1350 and managed to flashed to SG/MY V2.5.

But its not showing the Junction view and lane assist.

After the flashed i have downloaded the full file of MSM map from Garmin website and installed it.

I check the junction file is inside the Garmin.

What could be wrong ? Anyone have experience ?

I found that my device can't detect my SD card. The map inside SD card is not seen in the device. Anyone see this issue? I am suspecting software problem as I flashed my device from US to local firmware.

I managed to flash my 205W to till 2W series.

Step 3
When I tried to enable the TTS until step 9, suddenly the 205w keep switching on and off, I disconnect the 205W from my PC. When I try to start the 205W, there is a white screen follow by Garmin Logo and it just switch off.

Please help.......... :cry: :cry: :cry: :prayer: :prayer: :prayer:

Advice needed.
Hi ..., I am stucked at the step #6 (There are no USB device available). I tried several times @step #5 (Even downloaded/installed the specific USB driver from Garmin website) but still cant get through the Step #6, whilst waiting for the "Updater.exe" to allow to select the Garmin device (Refer to screenshot). :-k :-k :-k

I am using Garmin 205W S3 board. Made in Taiwan. I did check/follow the preparation steps.

5. Slide and HOLD the Power Button of the Nuvi, then quickly plug in the USB cable to
connect to the computer. (Continue to hold the power button).
6. The updater.exe will detect the USB Device with your model software and Unit ID.
(Continue to hold the power button)

you can activate the usb manually, at main screen, press and hold the battery icon for few seconds, the usb will be detected and you can flash.
