you should not convert to local unit using the gupdate, you should use the rgn tool to use back the original boot.bin + sg/my fw_all.bin

this will make sure you dont brick your device.

Hi, if I update my US Nüvi 265W to the MG/Sig so it accepts lane assistance and junction view, can I later turn it back to it's original firmware? the US one?

Thanks!

Hi,

I have a 260w bought 2-3 years back from USA. Can I flash it to SG/MY Firmware v3.10?

Would any experts kindly advise before I take the plunge and brick my unit please?

Best regards,

So means msm and Mfm is different?
So means in my gps I should choose either Mfm or msm in map?
