Does Garmin provide free lifetime map update?
When I bought the device, the salesman claims that Garmin provide lifetime free map update.
But when I tried to update the map at Garmin, it ask me for a subscription account!

If you read the fine print you'll know that this is true as long as their map providers still provide free map....

What region map are you trying to update? If you bought your GPS here in My/Sg you are only entitled to this regional map... For other region maps you need to buy.

Hope this helps... Cheers!

Not sure what you mean by "subscription account". Can you post a screenshot?

I bought my Garmin 40LM not long ago.
The following are the maps in my internal memory:
- Mfm 2012.30
- Malsingmaps Malaysia/Singapore/Brunei NT 2012.10
- City Navigator Singapore/Malaysia NT 2012.30
- MFM-Garmin 121001
- Mfm Poi 121001
- Mfm Poi 121001

I tried to use each of the maps available and discovered the following:

a) MFM-Garmin 121001 have the most up-to-date road info but no lane-assist and
speed limit warning.
b) Malsingmaps Malaysia/Singapore/Brunei NT 2012.10 has lane-assist and speed limit
warning but the map is out-dated. It says there is a round-about in front of the
Chinese Assembly Hall in KL, and advised me to take the 1st exit!
c) City Navigator Singapore/Malaysia NT 2012.30 has both lane-assist and speed limit
but seriously lacking in POI info.

I have the following doubts waiting to be cleared:

1) I love the Mfm 2012.30 very very much but I also love to have lane-assist and
speed limit warning at the same time too. Can I have both worlds ?
2) Can I tick Mfm 2012.30 and both the Mfm Poi 121001 ? (By the way, why are there
2 Mfm Poi 121001 ?)
:rox: :tq: :good:
Thanking in advance.

BTW, thanks to all those mappers, contributors and experts. Well Done. :)


Yes, It works on my G60, M10 and A50.

BTW, Malfreemaps 2012.30 is out!

Sorry, i tried to download it, and keyed in the serial number of my A10. But it stated "your serial number is incorrect". Did you experience this problem?

May I know how did you update the map into your phone? Thanks

This is a Garmin thread....

Papago x3 map is no longer supported. Please go to your dealer to get it upgraded.
