    Default GARMIN 4592 CN - Require to change OS to English

    I'm new here.
    Just bought a Garmin Nuvi 4592 during my trip to China.
    However, it does not have Google Play and Google search.
    It does however have Baidu and some Chinese Search engine.
    I can operate the system in English.
    I also think it has preloaded maps of China.
    I intend to use this GPS in Mumbai, India.
    Following are my queries:
    How can I reset the unit to work in India - I am able to see the local map, and I think this is because of sattelite connection
    Can I delete Baidu and the Chinese search engine from the unit and install Google search and Google play - How?
    I cannot connect this unit to Garmin Express, as it shows as unsupported.
    Is it possible to download India Maps?
    Please assist.

    As I know there is Nuvi 4592LM SG/MY version too( it has English interface) but from what I can read on Malfreemaps forum there are many problems with this version too.
    Even it is android device, it does not come pre-install with Google Play Store.
    The Download Center (via Wifi) is kind of buggy, it keep pop up the software update in notification bar even i have tried install numerous time.
    You need to complete the software update before update map in Download center. So with the bug mentioned in, i never get to update latest map via wifi. But still can update via PC updater
    Spoiler: But read the info at this link

    I guess to delete Baidu and the Chinese search engine from the unit you must root it.
    You can use India map unlocked by gimgunlock+mapsigpatch if I remember well a post of one user in this forum.
    You find India city Navigator map in Maps Index/Maps section.
    You have to navigate to get to the good.
