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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

@PouchX

Voice prompts seemed to be fine with the limited tested I did earlier. I noticed nothing out of the ordinary. My biggest issue was with the broken Junction View. After all, what's the point in having the newer split-screen JV if it does not work correctly...

Another thing that bugged me was the animated battery charge indicator that was constantly animated, regardless of the battery status. It never stopped moving.

I have since reverted back to US v3.40. If you need anything tested further, I could easily reflash TW v2.50.

Strange thing.
If your American_English or British_english VPM works good... Polish VPM should work also.
These VPMs use same .wav sample call table.
Have no idea why Polish.VPM does not work.

PS. Can you check BRITISH...VPM (not American)???

@PouchX

Do you mean TTS vs non-TTS? They are both named with a .vpm extension...
If so, I did NOT check any of the non-TTS voices. All I checked was American English Jill TTS.

As you may know, this forum was one of the first places on the Interwebz to discuss how to update nuvi firmware with a Mac using OSX (not Boot Camp, etc.), long before Garmin supplied any way to do it, so if you haven't done so yet, read the topic about that and see if it can be modified to do this type of installation. My guess is that it can't, but I've been wrong before [g].

Yes, I am relatively familiar with those techniques as I had (and still have) a 350 for the years before the Mac software was available but I have never worked with a .rgn file before as was wondering what I need to do to properly load it. Thanks anyways.

I tried the 765TWN fw 2.5 on my 775T and it installed without a hitch. I use the HK/Macau v7 ENG map and the junction view works fine now. The poi view and current street name were great.

After a few test drives I found that after selecting a destination the unit would freeze after about 5 minutes. This has happend everytime so I have rolled back to the previous fw.

Has this hapend to anyone else?

Hello,

I'm just trying to verify how to change f/w into Taiwan 2.5 on a nuvi 775t. I go into service mode by holding power, connect the usb and run updater with the rgn file in the same folder? Will that replace the current f/w on my nuvi 775t?

Thanks in advance.

Try this,

1) turn unit off
2) slide switch to screen lock position
3) launch the update.exe software on the computer
4) press and hold in the middle of the screen
5) continue holding while inserting usb cable
6) continue holding... Software will recognize device
7) continue holding... Click ok to start the update
8) continue holding a while longer.. After software says erasing, you can stop holding.

Aside from that, is this 2.50 taiwan firmware still the most recent for that region?

Got to field test a 765 with this firmware. Ran into a bizarre glitch. The compass points funny. North is up, south is down, West is right, east is left! Does a compass work differently in Taiwan than it does in North America?

Everyone should perform data reset after changing firmware TWN to EU/USA and back.

PS. In my N765EU with TWN firmware, compass works well.

I've changed my 765T firmware from EU to TWN already. Everything get find. But if there is new fimware version eg. TWN 2.60, can I just put gupdate.gcd of TWN 2.60 firmware in my unit to update it?. Do I need to wait for modified of 2.60 TWN firmware?

Other thing is if I'd like to revert back to EU/US firmware, what I should do is just putting gupdate.gcd of US 3.40 firmware back into my unit, right? Please recommend me if this is wrong.

Thank so much.

If you want to go back to EU/US version... just copy fw3.40 gupdate.gcd
If you want new version of TWN firmware.. you have to wait fo patched version.

PouchX, the issue still persists. When going west, it points to the right.

I did the reset by holding down one of the corners when booting the device. It asks me to select the language, etc like it did on the initial power on after purchase.

I think u have a misunderstanding in this case. The compass needle points always to North.
So when u drive West, then it points to the right side which is where "North" is located.

Hmm anybody tried out that TWN 2.60 version and found interesting improvement over 2.50 (apart from probable fix as in US FW3.60)? Me too waiting for new patch by PouchX but curious what will happen if one just simply copy the Gupdate.gcd to Garmin folder...
(1) it can upgrade the unit from 2.50 PouchX to TWN 2.60
(2) it will not be recognized by the system, hence keeps that 2.50 PouchX; OR
(3) system failure/missing software system and such...

PouchX,

I initially installed your patched version. On one of the other sites, there was a byte/byte comparison showing the difference between your version and the one that shows "loading maps". The failed checksum in the diag screen was bothering me. http://www.malfreemaps.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=618&start=240, the post by bahathir on 5/5/09 9:21pm.

I edited your rgn file to values shown in the "loading maps" column, reflashed with update.exe utility. All was good. I then located the link above - at that time it was 2.50, figured see if I can try updating with a gcd file instead of rgn (easier), it took!

Last night, went to that same page and downloaded the new 2.60 ver and reflashed.

My guess is the US/TW versions are nearly identical on the hardware side, with perhaps a few differences in the ROM code (which explains why lane assist looks funny after the flash), and/or the screen is formatted differently. The 'patching' forces the unit to take the non-US firmware by changing header bytes or similar? Btw, after installing the TW firmware, the HwID changes to 006-B1007-00 from "006-B0870-00" with the US firmware.

Ok, so I'm kinda new to the Nuvi game. I had a SPIII for a long time and just got a 755 for my B-Day. Anyway, I did the 3.60 update based on the advice here, and I'm trying to get a better understanding of what the Taiwan firmware adds, and whether it's worth loading it. Has the junction view been fixed in this version?

thanks

PouchX mate, I just bought Nuvi 765 Australian version, can I upgrade it to your this 2.61 mod firmware directly? or Do i need to upgrade it to you 2.50 twn version first and then this?

@ s_kates81
It depends what hardware ID do you have.
If you have 870 you can upload this firmware.
You can check your HID in GarminDevice.xml file in tag <PartNumber>006-B0870-00</PartNumber>

How to upload this firmware:

- turn off your Nuvi
- run UPDATER.exe
- keeping one finger on the screen turn your Nuvi ON and very fast slide to LOCK
- it has to be done very fast (dont wait for Garmin logo on the screen)
- connect your Nuvi with USB cable to PC
- in UPDATER window your Nuvi should appear in USB DEVICE list (check it)
- press OK
- you should see LOADER../SOFTWARE LOADING on Nuvi screen (you can remove your finger now)
- wait until Nuvi reboots itself
- dont disconnect USB cable
- delete GUPDATE.GCD file from Garmin folder in Nuvi.

This is more easier steps if your nuvi still can be turned on....
1. Connect USB for storage mode and delete GUPDATE.GCD (make sure there is no GUPDATE.GCD in nuvi drive)
2. Disconnect USB cable, the unit will turn on as usual.
3. Press and hold down 5 seconds on battery icon, the unit will go into service menu.
4. Then, connect USB cable while you are in service menu.
5. Run updater.exe, you will see your unit in the choice.

Please make sure you have more than a half of your battery capacity.

PouchX steps is most proper to the unit that can't be turned on as usual.

Help please! After examined the TW firmware decided to go back to EU 3.40.
Then I restored the GUPDATE.GCD into my 765t. Everything works fine except that when in route I cannot see the arrows (lane info) in the upper left corner as usualy. How can I solve this problem, have I to reset the unit? And if somebody knows how can I go back to previous firmware versions, if thiw will be a solution?

The Junction View problem is still there, I think that problem was "introduced" in v.2.50. 2.40 didn't had that problem.
Taiwan has also TMC and the GTM-21 is sold for the 765 here. So TMC should work.

Just out of curiosity, does someone have the jcv file from a taiwanese unit? if so, could that person place the jcv file into the US/Euro Nuvi 7x5 and try it with the TW firmware. I wonder if that will give us the 1/2 sized junction view?

Maybe no need anymore. Taiwan released today FW 2.70, maybe fixed with US/EUR JCV.
Most interesting is, the GPS Firmware is updated to Version 2.90

I highly doubt the TW firmware will fix the JCV for the US/Euro 7x5 nuvi, they are designed for TW 765 nuvi and I don't think they expected people to install modified FW on different platforms. However, if you are right, that would be nice.

Well, Garmin sells in Taiwan also the Europe and USA Maps. And the JCV is also broken with Orginal 2.60 Firmware. So if someone buys here the map and travels to Europe and get this JCV then, how happy he will be about? So as soon as I bought the map and the problem still exists, then its only 20km to Garmin Taiwan from my place and you can bet that I will insist to fix that.

But JCV for Singapore is only available for Singapore/Malaysia Devices. Garmin states that clear on their webpage. For Taiwan Models there is no statement that JCV works only for Taiwan. You cannot compare that.

So, Garmin should inform the dealer in taiwan, and the taiwan dealer should educate their salesman or salesgirl, because before I bought the map, I did ask the salesgirl, Can this asia map can support JCV and lane assist in singapore and malaysia, she replied "yes". after came back to singapore, but actually JCV not support, You know how happy I am ? then, it's only 2000km to garmin taiwan from my place. and you can bet that I will insist to fix that.

Sure, I would be pis... But frankly, it stated on their website: http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/sg/support/MapUpdate/
But for Europe it's not stated anything that JCV won't display correctly.
After searching some taiwanese forums, it looks like they bricked this with FW 2.50.
2.40 was according to them fine.

Hi PouchX,
I have an Australian nuvi 765 with the correct HW ID as mentioned in the previous post.
I tried to update to your modified 2.71 TW F/W but on my unit, I get the first screen where it tells me to select a Locale and I can't progress from there. It seems to be stuck. The Next & Arrow buttons can be pressed but that's all.
I was able to load 2.61 OK but 2.71 seems to not work.
Any ideas?

I have encountered similar problem twice (when using my own way just like when I did for PouchX v2.61 but it didnt work for this version and cant move ahead as what you have explained above).

Later strictly followed PouchX's step by step instruction, then successfully installed the new version 2.71

Garmin local distributors (Sing/Mal region) were having difficulties to sell their product as they cant compete with much lower prices for units brought in from Taiwan and even US/Europe. For their survival I think, apart making their price to be more competitive than before, they somehow managed to convince Garmin to encrypt JCV for Sing/Mal map to only works with the local units (Sing/Mal region)... those who have bought map for Sing/Mal but not using local units will only be able to use the map, but not the JCV features...

How abt if the unit have MalSing firmware? Will split screen+JCV still work? I found on the net some instructions for changing into MalSing fw for 7x5 units.

quote:

Taiwan has also TMC and the GTM-21 is sold for the 765 here. So TMC should work.



All I want to know is whether TMC will still work in EU/US (esp for UK & USA where TMC is subscription based, as EU/US 765T have lifetime sub).

Hi pouchx, have you been using your excellent software on my EU 765, in Singapore. Was wondering, would it be possible for you to make a similar "patched" version of the Singapore 765 firmware, to be used in my EU set? reason being the official Singapore maps will only show JCV properly in Sg/Mal sets :(

Theoretically it should works. I have been waiting/searching for one to try out, not knowing it is available now... where did u find it?

P/S: There are 3 types of garmin maps for Malaysia/Singapore available at the moment:
(1) Garmin NT V4.03 - Preloaded in local units or sold separately, with JCV (for local units only), lane assist, expressway exits guide
(2) Malsingmaps 2009.5 (June '09) - Requires contribution for unlock code, with JCV (for local units only), expresway exits guide
(3) Malfreemaps - Free download, no JCV (yet), no expressway exits guide, no lane assist

Separate 3D buildings map can be used with any of the maps above, but IMHO malfreemap has the best coverage thus far as it is updated weekly (every Monday morning)

OK after many attempts I finally managed to get FW 2.71 working on my Aussie 765. Initially I did try performing user data reset before and after FW update and it would still not progress past the screen (even with the screen unlocked).

I then thought, maybe it's because the screen is still in the lock position when the FW is being updated. So as soon as the unit got detected by the updater, I unlocked the unit, clicked OK on the updater and once the FW finished, hey presto... it now works!!!

I also notice that my HID has changed from 006-B0870-00 to 006-B1007-00. Is this OK? Or should I restore my backup GarminDevice.xml file back to the nuvi?

1007 is fake HID and it is only in GarminDevice.xml file.
Your real HID is still 870.
You can copy original GUPDATE.GCD with fw3.60 EU/USA and your Nuvi will accept it.

Sorry, I made a mistake. The instructions are for flashing EU/US Nuvi 2x5W to MalSing 2x5W, enabling JCV.

Why should it not work? Don't get it. The subscription is in ur GTM-21 and not in the Nuvi.
But when I bought my GTM-21 here in Taiwan, I got a lifetime subscription for Via-Michelin France activated. Don't ask me why, never been with my Nuvi in France. After 3 days, the subscription showed suddenly up, valid till April 10, 2049

Well so far this new 2.71 TW FW of PouchX is great.

Few of the extra features not found on the EU/USA FW are nice.

Some minor things...

I wish the Speed Limit sign would remain on the map display rather than only appearing when you go over the speed limit of the street you're travelling on.

The road that I live in is a "Tce" (Terrace), which the nuvi now says "T C E" instead of Terrace. EU/USA FW correctly pronounced Terrace.

I notice now when I go in to the Language Guide, it's not the Garmin Language Guide. Which I had the complete version installed. I guess there's no way to get that one back with this TW FW?

Other than that, I like the additional features of the TW FW and will remain using it.

Standard (default) setting for FW TWN2.70 is "Over Speed Limit". You may select "Always On" at Tools>Settings>Navigation>Speed Limit.

Thats only in the beginning. During driving it will correct the issues and the Nuvi "memorizes" your driving style. So after a few times driving the time will be shown correctly

Hmm... I checked there and I don't have that option. Only Route Preference & Avoidances.

Perhaps I might try and reload TW FW 2.71.

During selecting Locales, chose the default which is Taiwan.
If you select United States or Other, this option is not available.
So u have to restore the settings or make a hardreset

It seems like the TW or CHN versions have some very nice graphics - when used with their local maps.

TW Version

Looks like only the TW/CHN fw support maps for Japan & also PRC/TW.

Some interesting screen shots from Singapore and Malaysia Garmins, looks like even SG/MY 760 is capable of displaying line assist and junction view. US 7x0 Garmin owners would be real winners if SG/MY software is adapted to US units.

Well, these features sounded so intersting I decided to try them. I go to the end of the instructions and my nuvi rebooted, then it wants me to set the locale - but it won't accept and screen presses. It highlights the selection I make but doesn't activate it. it is like in windows if you single click an icon it highlights and only activates if you double click.
If I hold the lower right corner and start that way to delete user data it does the same once it asks if I want to delete user data and I select yes, it just set there I can select yes or no and it just set like it neaver really takes the selection.

I encounted this also and managed to get through it in the end.

Try the following as per PouchX's instructions I did only 1 thing different (in BOLD)...

- delete GUPDATE.GCD file from Garmin folder in Nuvi
- turn off your Nuvi
- run UPDATER.exe
- keeping one finger on the screen turn your Nuvi ON and very fast slide to LOCK
- it has to be done very fast (dont wait for Garmin logo on the screen)
- connect your Nuvi with USB cable to PC
- in UPDATER window your Nuvi should appear in USB DEVICE list (check it)
- press OK on the UPDATER
- you should see LOADER../SOFTWARE LOADING on Nuvi screen (you can remove your finger now and slide the screen lock to normal position)
- wait until Nuvi reboots itself
- dont disconnect USB cable

Hopefully that should work for you.

Yeah I intially selected one of the locales and only saw the Speed Limit option, but then I reset it again and selected another locale and saw the JCV Road Sign On/Off option.

I noticed that with different locales, the icons in Where To? are organised differently. Had to find one that had at least Address in the first screen since it's one that I most frequently use.

As soon as I take the slider out of screen lock the updater.exe quits seeing the Nuvi again. At least it is eay to copy my backup files back over the garmin folder and restart and it restores everything.

Below is what is in the Readme - So where do I do the user data reset and Screen Calibration and copy the ExtData and RemoteSW?

How to upload this firmware:

- delete GUPDATE.GCD file from your device
- perform user data reset
- turn off your Nuvi
- run UPDATER.exe
- keeping one finger on the screen turn your Nuvi ON and very fast slide to LOCK
- it has to be done very fast (dont wait for Garmin logo on the screen)
- connect your Nuvi with USB cable to PC
- in UPDATER window your Nuvi should appear in USB DEVICE list (check it)
- press OK
- you should see LOADER../SOFTWARE LOADING on Nuvi screen (you can remove your finger now)
- wait until Nuvi reboots itself
- probably you will get Screen Calibration
- perform user data reset
- copy ExtData and RemoteSW directories to you Nuvi

To perform a user data reset...

- Turn off the nuvi
- Hold your finger down at the bottom right hand corner of the screen then Power on the nuvi

As the nuvi starts up with your finger still pressed on bottom right corner of the screen, you will be shown a screen that displays...

"Do you want to erase all user data?"

Select Yes.

I wouldn't worry about the screen calibration as it didn't appear when I applied the firmware.

The ExtData and RemoteSW folders should be in the PouchX archive when you extract it. Just copy these 2 folders to the x:\Garmin directory. It will prompt you that the folders already exist, do you want to copy? Just select Yes.

So if I install this latest version of the TW firmware on my 765T, what features of the TW firmware will not work properly or not work at all?

Will I lose any of the features / functionality I have now w/ US firmware v3.6?

somebody needs to come up with JCV re-sizer in order to adapt US JCVs to TW software.

Anyone has real service firmware for Nuvi 765 EU or any solution?. After I tried to use PouchX ver 2.71 My Nuvi response very slow. I tried to convert it back to EU 3.6 but not success. It displays message fail to update firmware.

Get it from here: http://www.garmin.at/show_page.php?pid=391
Click on the "GUpdate.gcd", thats version 3.60. Sorry only German but the only source I know and I hope that there is no difference in EU/USA Firmware.
Did you make a hardreset after applying the Taiwan Firmeware? Cause the functionaity of the Firmware is from my understanding the same, only the ID was changed to apply this FW on EU devices. But PouchX knows better what he did ;)

So the only thing that doesn't work properly in the TW firmware is the Junction View feature?

Are there any features from the US 3.6 firmware that's missing or not working in the TW firmware?

You can also get it directly from Garmin here...
http://www.garmin.com/software/nuvi7x5_regionfileonly__360.gcd

Once downloaded, drag and drop the nuvi7x5_regionfileonly__360.gcd file over to the WebUpdater icon and WebUpdater will then copy it over to your nuvi for you.

I don't have Australia 2010 maps with JV on my nuvi yet so can't comment on this, but the only items I've noticed that is different between the TW & EU FW is...

* The Language Guide on TW FW is only English to Chinese & vice versa (but is empty).
* TW FW prounounces some street names incorrectly compared to the EU FW.

I downloaded and installed it to see if there are any differences to the TW FW.

* The Garmin Language Guide is restored in the SGMal FW.
* Map display is similar to TW FW but it does not have the little green bar above the Menu button showing the current road you're driving on.
* In Tools --> Settings --> Navigation, JCV Option is not available in any of the asian locales I tested with.

Map refresh seems to be a lot more stuttery with my testing.

I've since reverted back to PouchX's TW FW 2.71

2.11 SIN\MA can used locked Thailand JCV.
Have same problem with 2.71 TWN and 2.11 SIN\MA.
Touch screen was hard to respond.
Very slow to draw map.
But 2.61 TWN was very good.
Can you fix this problem?

The Highway mode is only available when u selct as Locales "Taiwan".
That's working for the TW Firmware, the SIN/MA maybe not.
But highway mode won't help you at all when the maps don't support it.
From my knowledge only Taiwan Maps have the highway mode included.

I think THung who tried to told you that change your uit Locales to "Taiwan", check whether the highway mode still not available. you can change the locales by using the clearing the user data method.
1. Turn the unit off.
2. Place your finger in the lower-right corner of the screen.
3. Keep your finger there and turn on the unit.
4. A prompt will appear to clear user data. Select Yes.
after that, unit will restart, and going to the Country locales selection screen, select Taiwan. and try,

Just thought I'd chime in with some recent experiences with the 2.60 TW firmware. I know that 2.70 is more recent, but my 765 seemed much more sluggish with it, so I reverted back to 2.60. Haven't had a chance to actually use it until today. I notice that street names on many streets is lacking when in routing or non routing mode. I don't recall this was the case with the 2.50 version. When I have some time off of work, I will reinstall 2.50 and see if there are indeed more street names present.

Typical garmin, 1 step forward, 3 steps back.

For the same reason, I am keeping Sing/Mal FW2.10 despite TWN2.70 offers better features/performance perhaps. I can get to see more street names and building/area names with Sing/Mal FW2.10, which (for me) very useful indeed when navigating around unfamiliar places.

Hi,
I have both the Nuvi 760 (Australian Version) as well as the Nuvi 760(Sing/Mal Version). The latter unit has JCV.

I had tried copying some files from the Sing/Mal version and pasting them into the Aussie version. However, no function changes were observed. Just wondering how to get my Australian version to have local JCV as I now use this unit almost entirely here locally.

Thank You.

AFAIK nobody could successfully convert nuvi 760 firmware to other region (e.g. Sing/Mal) just yet...

Although I was at first hesitant to try your patched firmware... I tried your firmware and after it uploaded, the nuvi displayed "Software Missing"!

Luckily I was still able to use PouchX's to fix this.

I think that's the last time I'll be trying someone else's modified firmware other than from PouchX.
