    Default Garmin map update 2014??

    Hi, can anyone advises if they know of Garmin update for map of Singapore in 2014?

    I went to check and realise that they stop at 2013.30 .... no updates of the recent Marina Bay changes & MCE makes it so unusable!

    Wrote in to customer service but no reply... anyone who have information can share and advise?

    My impression is that these maps tend to have a more extensive POI database, other than that, work exactly the same as Garmin maps. I believe they are created/updated by members of the MSM community. They started out technically unofficial but have since received Garmin's support and endorsement.

    E.g, Garmin website directs users to download MSM/MFM maps (but it's probably more direct to go to the source, you'll get latest updates):
