    You must always push your limits. Because if you never fail, you will never succeed.

    There are a few ways to load additional maps into your Garmin device but I have to know a few things before I can advise you:
    - which model is your GPS
    - what maps are already loaded
    - is there a SDcard, and is there map inside
    - is your Thailand map named gmapsupp.img if not what's the name

    Malfreemap (MFM) , in the FREE DOWNLOAD Section, under Topic "Free Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei & Thailand Garmin GPS Map", Thailand map is included but don't expect street level details like Singapore.

    Once you download the self execute file "MFM-Garmin-xxxxxx.exe" to your PC, just follow the instructions to the part of degenerating the GMAPSUPP.IMG file. Click NO to transfer the file to your device, that that would finish the process, and close the application.

    Now look for the GMAPSUPP.IMG, in your PC. Insert your SD card into your PC, and create a sub-directory by the name GARMIN in the root directory ie x:\garmin, and copy the GMAPSUPP.IMG into that directory.

    Insert the SDcard into you Zumo and power it up and it will automatically load the new map to the system. To confirm if it was successfully loaded, you can check in SETTING>MAP>MAP INFO.

    Always load maps from online into SDcard because if a corrupted map is loaded into the device, you could "brick" your GPS.

    It's better to get someone who is familiar with this process to show you once before attempting it on your own.

    Instead of garmin apps. Why don't you install google maps. Buzz App | Buzz Apps | Apps Buzz | Twilio Services | Shopify Services | SMS Marketing | Wordpress SMS Plugin You don't have to upload images into it. You can get updated images in it.

    I have been using Garmin mobile app for more than year for now and as compared to Google map i have found it a bit more unfriendly. You could say i am now used to it.
