I've made mod on Taiwan fw2.50.
Firmware can be loaded into EU/USA version of Nuvi 7x5.
You will get some new and interesting options.
Firmware is in .rgn format so it has to be uploaded as "service firmware"

Link:
www.PouchX.com/customers/CURE/Nuvi705-715-755-765-775-785_fw2.50_HID_0870_Taiwan_PouchX.zip

Some tests made on our Polish forum:
http://www.garniak.pl/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=3745&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&start=300

INFO:
Before uploading:
- delete GUPDATE.GCD file or backup it to go back to original firmware
- backup your waypoints..etc
- after going back to original firmware, you need to make user data reset
- Taiwan firmware version numbering has no connection with EU/USA firmware numbering. Taiwan fw2.50 is dated to 30/03/2009

Cool! Is the default language set to English? Have you observed any "bugs" in this modified firmware?

All localizations and languages can be set as in standard firmware.
I used this firmware for 500km yesterday. No bugs found.

@yingyong
I have no N760 to test it now.

Nice work PouchX. I just wonder why Garmin US does not provide this enhanced firmware for 7x5's other than the Taiwan models.

I think programmers from Garmin TW make their own firmware.
As you can see on:
www.garmin.com.tw/car/index.htm ... many other units have futures that probably will never come to EU/USA unit.
That is internal Garmin policy that I will never understand also.

@BAVC10

- WAAS/EGNOS enabled
- POIs are shown in 3D mode
- TouchScreen calibration activaded on screen setting menu
- SpeedLimits are shown only when you exceed the speed limit
- little commpas in left-down screen corner
- handwriting recognition when you type address, street name, number.. etc
- above menu button, actual streetname you are driving is shown
- LaneAssist is splited into two screens
- more diriving modes: Car, Truck.. etc.
- animated batt charging icon
- satellite screen after one short click. Keeping it longer, enables GPS Simulation
- GarminOnline futures.

I'll just add onto PouchX's info:

On my unit with US maps, the smaller Junction View does not display correctly as it is simply too wide to fit into the half width screen area. It does however display correctly if you press the Green next turn arrow display which displays it in full screen mode.

*EDIT: I'm willing to bet that Taiwan uses a different Junction View format that likely have scalable aspect ratios for the actual views. As it is now, the US Junction Views used with the Taiwan split screen firmware are basically useless. Example:



Additional Route Preferences: "Priority to HWY-1" and "Priority to HWY-2". The "Less Fuel" setting that was added with ecoRoute is no longer listed (note however that ecoRoute *is* on the system). I have no idea how these two new settings affect routing.

The satellite signal strength bars now display the constellation screen with a quick tap (as in earlier nuvis such as the 3xx/6xx series) but you can now toggle GPS on/off by pressing & holding the sat bars for ~3 seconds. No more need to go into the system settings screen to do this.

I personally have not been able to access, nor have seen the handwriting recognition for any input (I don't know that I would want to anyways...seems that this type of input would take much longer and be more error-prone). Maybe I'm doing something wrong...

The "current street" display above the Menu button on the map screen displays only while navigating a route, otherwise it is not displayed. Example:

nüvi 3490LMT, nüvi 3790LMT, nüvi 765T, nüvi 855, nüvi 760, nüvi 750

This looks interesting. Is there any way to install this firmware using a Macintosh?

When you start typing street name etc, change kayboard type to TWN/CHN (last two on the types list).

Interesting for sure.
Can the speed limit be displayed all the time also, or no control with this OS, only when exceeding limit?

@tampa8

Seems the Speed Limit display will only show if you go over the speed limit. I don't see any setting or any way to change it.

Yes, the POIs are visible on the 3D map screen at 300ft and below zoom level.

Wow, that is also a change - 300ft. I now get POI's at 200 or 120ft only. I'm torn I like the new changes alot, but really like having the speed show all the time......I have found the GPS speed limit to be so accurate or within 5MPH so often I rarely look for the road sign anymore.

@SergZak

Are voice prompts work correct in your N765.. or they are messed up?

PS. Polish voice (VPM file) needs to be reedited :( I'm working on it.
