Voyager,

For Garmin Nuvi 255w, if I purchased it in US, it comes with the US map.

Can I still download the MalSing map into it, and have both the US map and MalSing map in the device?

So, after buying the device, there will be no extra implicit and explicit charges (since all maps are free)?

Thanks

Giap Seng

Hi Giap Seng,

Please refer to my article about adding multiple maps in Garmin Nuvi 255w GPS.

The maps might not be free, depends on your purchase T&C with Garmin/vendor. For example, MSM is only legally free for Sing/Mal version of Garmin GPS, which you need to get the unlock code from their website with the serial number. Alternatively, MSM is free if you joint the MSM community and contributed something to their map.

However, MalFreeMaps (MFM) is free for all to use without any condition.
