What will be the different between this map and "here" maps?
I was told if I purchase the new Garmin device, I can only install the maps from Garmin web site, is it true? Thanks.



I'm bit confius with phrase " What will be the different between this map and "here" maps? "

Please specific your questions,TQ

I'm referring to the new model 4592, came with here map for life.
http://www.garmin.com.sg/products/ontheroad/nuvi4592lm/

Can this model install MFM (cGPSmapper) map or it can only install map from garmin web site?
and also since this is an Android OS, will the map still in .img format?

OK Got it

HERE Map = Navteq Map = Nokia Map

Malfreemap = Malfree Map

As i know,Garmin Streetpilot base on Android devices running smooth on both Map with IMG format like normal Garmin unit.
So i think it should have no problem for your Garmin Unit to use this Map.Sorry for my missunderstanding cause of confusing HERE and Navteq,i bit late to follow the Navteq rebranding their product.

Is MFM-Garmin 150622 the latest map? Are there any update for 2016?
