I've read the Comments and a lot of users are returning the units after they bought because they are not happy with it. Is it the software or maps problems? Will we have the same problems in Asean regions?

I'm still waiting for Papago update and might consider a Nuvi, BUT am still waiting.....

i have the impression that N1460 is the equivalent set for this region.

I was about to order a factory refurbished set N1490 from Amazon but there have been conflicting reports on the net that the blue-tooth will not work with my Samsung Jet.

:D

Hello...

Just got the unit yesterday and having no problem with MFM map...the unit is functioning well.

Anyhow, it cannot display the POI icons...
