Bought a 1/2 day tour at tanah Rata..@RM60/pax (Children RM30)...price include 4WD journey from meeting point at Butterfly Farm & thereafter ~40min ride till Lojing's Temiang ppl settlement.

Picked up 2 orang asli guides from the kampung & thereafter a scary roller coaster ride for about 2.5km & thereafter walk for almost 1hr or about 2.5km to the rafflesia flower site....This time the flower bloomed on top of a steep hill & climbing up & down the hill..damn scary.

Wanted to share this info or bug. I was using the maps and indeed it was very useful in helping me to find all the places in Cameron Highlands especially in Tanah Rata. On Friday mid noon we decided to go to Boh Tea Plantation from Hillview Inn in Tanah Rata and unfortunatly it decided to take me on a non existing road directly at the back of Hillview Inn to Sg Palas Boh estate. Is this a bug or is it because of the weather (rainy and foggy) or something else? On the way back the map was perfect. Please escuse me coz Im a newbie to GPS maps in terms of tech!

Based on reading other forums regarding Cameron Hihglands, one of the quoted ones and I've seen on the main road of Tanah Rata is Kong Travels. They're quite popular with the backpackers crowd I noticed
. Hope this info helps!

I'm truly sorry but I didn't log the coordinates as I'm still learning to use my Garmin . Just wanted to share my experience! Thanks for taking the time to answer!

I went up Cameron Highlands over the weekend.

As per my now practise, I will take the new road at Simpang Pulai-Brinchang route going up and then the Brinchange/Tanah Rata/Ringlet-Tapah old road going down.

My route is to and from Subang Jaya and my 255W is set for shortest route. Going up I had MFM-Garmin-100125 installed and going down I had MFM-Garmin-100201 installed.

On the outbound journey, the route suggested by MFM is the old route. This is understandable cos the new route is a lot further. I ignored it and it then suggested to exit at Simpang Pulai, which I did.

Then the routing went all crazy, it kept recalculating and show a straight line from Tapah to some point on the new road about 7 km from the Brinchang. There is no road there.

Then on the return journey. When leaving Tanah Rata, I set it to route home. It kept prompting me to turn back and go down via the new road. This is despite the fact that the shorter and faster route from Tanah Rata is via the old road to Tapah. This kept happening until Habu when I decided to switch off the routing.

I cant explain this. Anyone.

Dear all MFM master,
I have a question about the route the PND show. I don't know whether its related to the above issue or not. Last 3 weeks I had went to Cameron. On the way back (From Tanah Rata), I set the PND to route me to Bharat Tea House. But the result I get, It show me direct without following the road. Is it happend to everybody? I try to use mapsource, then it show the same way. Why is this happend? You can try by set your PND in simulated mode and set the stating point at N4 28.263 E101 22.500 and Last Point at N4 27.242 E101 22.147

I guess the real answer to the above problem is the moral of the story i.e.

When you know the way, keep the GPS. When you dont know the way, you will never know when the GPS leads you astray.
