Hello to All Sifoos & MFMers...

It is glad to hear that we have such a forum for GPS lovers.

Currently I'm having a Nuvi205W and just installed the MFM-Litev163. I found it much better than the preinstalled one. Looking forward to contribute if I find any 'cun' places or anything for the benefit of GPS lovers.

Thanks!

Of course mfm maps are better =D> . BTW, the 'standard' map runs well on the 205W. I don't use the 'Lite' version anymore.

:welcome: to mfm. Would appreciate if you could contribute in tracks and POIs... So, do you often travel with your laptop for navigation?

Hello there... I'm Jason from Penang and I thank you for this site... I'm very new to GPS mapping and I do hope that I can contribute enough for MFM. I will be uploading more of Clinics and hospitals (if there are any still not in or new ones) as I go around northern region quite a lot.

It'll be good if the POIs section does carry a clinics & Hospitals tab too. I'm currently on Nuvi 206W

Cheers and have a jolly good time guys! :D
