Hi, I'm new here. Staying in KL. I have browse through some of the topics and still getting use to it. I have a question here, I'm using Mac and the map is only available in .exe format which Mac doesn't support. Is there anyway I can get around it to install the map & software? Thanks.

Sorry we do not support MapKing format which is what Shinco uses.
Suggest you contact Shinco for support or retire your GPS and go buy a Garmin :mrgreen:

Hi all
Got stuck with a new purchase... Asking my friend where I can get help and he pointed me here. Initially I thought was a free download and glad to learn that this is a group of enthusiasts getting things done and making them right! :thumbsup:

Was using zumo 660 and thought it was crap... Sold that away... Been using my iPhone with Sygic maps and thought that was the best thing every happen since bread! Haha... Until I flooded my iPhone!

When online and started looking for a weather GPS and got this Chinavasion Rage GPS... And got myself another piece of crap! Hahaha... The tech support never reply and the customer support says it's not their problem... And now I know why it's call a Rage! :fire:

Posted my queries earlier and hopefully some Sifu here can pull me out of this crap! :prayer:

Best regards
Akhaltek

Answer- I cannot accept this,because as i know,my hometown village road in MFM is more detailed than Google Map,there is highlight of unpaved road which doesnt included in google map.

example :
1.)
5.419661,101.15128 ( google map )
N5 25.359 E101 09.182 ( MFM 131202 )


2.
2.29377,102.577922 ( google map )
N2 17.544 E102 34.712 ( MFM 131202 )


Please compare this,

so I come here to see what I can help with the map


So how this happen? because i'm taking a part to tracked my home town road which is never exist before,now i'm happy to check my hometown in MFM map,so you can start tracking and contribute your track log to MFM,since MFM gave big support to Garmin user.And Google map do nothing to Garmin user,because of this MFM community,Garmin also surrender to keep sell their map and lastly offer the LM unit to My/Sg Garmin end user,and finally use MFM map as their official map.I hope you can keep support MFM community to produce a free map.Without MFM ,i dont think we can have our privilege like we had like now since other biggest country from us still suffering to have a free map because garmin dont have competitor there so they monopoly the map market price.TQVM
