How was the progress of your problem??


I am still trying to configure what should I do. So basically in my SD card, I just create a new folder, and named it "Garmin", then just copy my gmapsupp.img into that folder, right? Correct me if I'm wrong

Hey guys, I'm using a nuvi 1300 and I was just wondering where to put the gmapsupp.img file in because I tried putting it in the Garmin folder but nothing happens...

Go buy a SD card, cheap nowadays vs bricking a Nuvi
Create a sub-folder in the card labelled /garmin

Copy the map file gmapsupp.img into that sub folder in the SD card

Hi,

I have a slight problem while trying to reinstall the MFM Map... usually I won't have this problem but only after I tried to update again after installing the official map updates from the Garmin website.

I know I shouldn't have done this because previously I didn't even bother to update with the official ones and my hands were itchy today and hence this problem arised.

Under the Settings -> Map -> Info, I am not able to find or detect the usual MFM map created by the guys here but instead I was given a file named "CN SGMY NT 2014.20-Here" instead of the usual file name I've been seeing... for example,"MFM-Garmin 131007, Mfm Poi 131007" or whichever the file name is like that goes according to the update version...

It seems that now I am only able to access the default maps and like I said... usually I that doesn't happen.

Already tried to install again many times but still same problem occurs acting as though I have yet to update it... :(

Please advice! #-o

Need help.

After the installation of MFM-Garmin Map, in the "Malfreemaps" folder, I saw many ".img" numbering files, for example,

60028000.img
60020000.img
60018000.img
...
and many more, > 30 of them, do I have to copy them in the SD/Garmin folder together with the gmapsupp.img? what about those files with "MFM.*",
MFM.img
MFM.MDX
MFM.TDB
...
Do I have to copy them into the SD/Garmin folder as well?

Thank you.

After download the installer, it will create a file name gmapsupp.img in the pc / lappy root directory label as garmin. In that directory look for sub folder malfreemap. You will find the file gmapsupp.img. Copy this file into a SD card /garmin directory. Plug this into your Nuvi SD card slot.

Checked with my 1350 no problem. Reload and reinstall from fresh copy. Mine stored in SD Card/garmin under gmapsupp.img

Make sure you select country Singapore or Malaysia according to your location
