    Indonesian Junction View, I know it exists but how do I enable it in my 1490?

    Hi everyone...

    I have a Nüvi 1490 LMT (purchased in Canada), and I'm currently using it in Indonesia. It's got the southeast asian map in it. The problem is, the Junction View mode doesn't seem to be working in Indonesia, so I suspect that I need an additional JCV file for Indonesia? Anybody know where I can get the file?

    Take a look at the Garmin Indonesia site:

    nuvi 3770LM | Di jalan | Produk | Garmin Indonesia

    if you scroll to the very bottom, you'll see a screenshot of an Indonesian junction view (I know it for sure because the highways pictured in the screenshot are Jakarta highways)...so now that we know that it exists, how do I go about adding the Indonesian JCV file to my 1490?

    Thanks!

    Nuvi 1490t can't accept copied files above about 6Mb

    Hello, When connecting my Nuvi to my PC the other day, Win7 asked me if I wanted it to fix lost clusters on the Nuvi, and I said yes without thinking. Now it does not accept copied files above about 6Mb (including map updates) - always hangs at about 6Mb during a copy. I've tried deleting a number of unwanted language voice files, clearing about 40Mb, but it makes no difference.
    Please would you point me in the right direction? No alternative but to re-format? What is best way to reformat?
    Many thaks in advance (PS is doing a reply in an existing thread the only way to post? Couldn't find a "New Thread' option...)

    My Nüvi 1490 LMT car charger is acting strange...is this normal?

    If I use the 1490's car charger on it, the 1490 first goes into mass storage mode (green loading bar followed by a little image of a desktop computer -- which is what one would see when attaching the 1490 to a computer) before going into navigation mode.

    On the other hand, if I use my Nüvi 265W car charger on the 1490, the mass storage mode is bypassed, and the 1490 goes straight into navigation mode, which is what I prefer (since it's annoying to have to go through the mass storage mode, which causes me to have to wait longer before I reach the navigation mode...)

    So what's wrong with the 1490's car charger then?

    So if you could maybe zip up a copy your garmin folders and files and upload them for me. I dont mind contributing some beer tokens for help if need be.

    try to use Garmin WebUpdater for Windows to download all files necessary for your device.

    I tried web updater and it doesn't recognize device. However if I hold top left of screen then Web updater does recognize device and then downloads file but errors saying download corrupted. Also tried garmin dashboard using the same method but that says software up to date. I hence I need a copy of someone's back up from the there 1490 to enable me to get device running again.

    I used garmin-cure.exe to enable device to be recognised which worked I have since copied all files from a good device which now allows Web updater to see device.

    However device is still stuck on gamin boot image.

    Webupdater keeps telling me there is 6.20 firmware update available which I install however I do not think it's installing even thou Web updater and mydash say installation complete. Reason why is it keeps asking me to update device to 6.20 every time I use Web updater or mydash. So it just keeps looping device update.

    Another thing is if I use garmin cure to write original firmware it updates ok but then computer no longer recognizes device unless I hold top left corner which enables device to be recognised only by garminCure.exe.


    Any suggestions
