    Using any US/EU Nuvi in Asia usually results in a less than perfect experience. The Asian JCVs for instance are different to US/EU/AU type jcvs and even are sometimes differently encrypted to each other. No original US/EU unit will read any Asian JCV without a crash/reboot error. SG/MY fw seems the most versatile at reading other type of jcv files including CH. But i don't think most CH unit fws will read SG/MY. Your only answer may be to try a risky cross-flash with Asian fw, worst possible scenario is a bricked nuvi resulting from that. Read this thread: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], i know it's about 3790 but that a not too different unit to 34xx. Read it all, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] might give you some hope. Maybe someone has already done it for 3450 and will post it for you.

    People seem to be more interested to do it the other way around, but maybe ask in here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
