May be has 2 version of MFM. one is non-POI display version for who don't like to POI display during navigation
and another one is POI display version for who like to view POI during navigation.
I wish it will become real in the future. hehee

Same here, it was a pleasant surprise as I joined MFM yesterday and uploaded the current v.1.15 maps and road test to day. In addition to you can see during navigation, I can see bank POIs also, cool. I wish traffic lights and petrol stations POIs can be seen also and that should be enough. Too much info could also clutter the display. Kudos to MFM \:D/

Some pics showing the POIs during navigation mode.

I stand corrected, can't see any bank POIs. However the Fastfood POIs, Tenaga Nasional, Mosque, temple, Pos Malaysia, water treatment plant can be seen clearly. It would be nice if the Petrol Station and traffic light POIs show up. It would definitely elevate the GPS navigation experience on a Nuvi200W =D>

Same goes to my n200 US version.

If the size of the POI for bank and Petrol Station is similar with the fast food, govt that would be nice!

Cheers!

The place of worship like 'Masjid' icon really is helpful, easy to stop at nearest location when the time comes for praying. Kudos to MFM =D>

My brother's 200w is a Taiwan set, while mine is a US set. Really could see the difference while navigating.
In the Taiwan set
1. Font seems bigger
2. All POI icons could be seen
3. There is a compass icon shown while u navigate around - good to know where North is! ;)

All these features are not shown in my US set! ;(
