    Why did you have swv 2.50 at first ? (2.50 is swv of US firmware)
    Is it possible that ., the shop converted US unit to other region ?

    Could you please go into inventory page to check boot HWID ?
    Normally it should be the real hwid of the unit.
    I bought mine from the IT Show in Taiwan. Which supposed to be the official Garmin dealer.

    So should I update my GPS using the new 2.10 Taiwan Firmware? Or will doing that brick my unit?

    Frankly, I believe you got a Singapore device. I guess the IT show u are referring to, was in July and at this time, the 3790 was not available in TW.
    But Garmin TW produces also the SG/MAL devices. Have to check which HWID has the TW device

    HWID 1259 is correct for TW 3790, still a mystery how u can have FW 2.50 for that device.
    Are u sure its this is not referring to a different FW of another component?
    Maybe you can upload a screenshot of your inventory page to show the FW versions. So far I would not recommend that you install FW 2.10.
    Another possibility, maybe u can upload your garmindevice.xml to a filehoster and send the link by PN. I would like to have a look on this

    Please go to inventory page to see what "HWID-SWV" is .


    Boot BLK B.HWID - SWV
    System B HWID-SWV

    The original unit have to get the same swv number both boot&system.

    And mystery solved.
    You have a TW Nuvi 3790 with FW 2.00
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    1259 is the HWID, 200 is the Firmwareversion. You can update to SG/MAL 2.50 or TW 2.10. I think no big differences

    So how come my GCD file is SG/MY instead of Taiwan?
