Just downloaded from MFM and uploaded the latest release V1.16. Wow! the map is very colourful now with more polygons than before. I could also see my contributions in this release =D>

Still the POIs for Petrol station/Banks/Traffic Lights still not visible during 3D Navigation.....nonetheless the maps are very nice indeed =D> =D>

Correct me if I am wrong. There is no tracking feature in 200W. Amazingly GMXT has this function.

Hi seethoe,

You need to have firmware version 2.70 in your nuvi unit. Please check your nuvi firmware version, you may need to upgrade/downgrade to have this feature.

mydear,

Your post create more questions than answers. What are you trying to do?... update your 200w firmware to 205w or you want to know if a 205w style firmware for 200w is available? You cannot use the 205w firmware for your 200w and you have to ask Garmin for any new interface for your 200w... cheers!

Actually I am tempted to try that on my 200W #-o

Few months back, did some others stuff, and conk out my 200W, had to send it back to garmin taiwan for repair, and they were kind enough to allow a warranty claim as it was within the warranty period :-'
