    Default Venus Series & Official City Navigator China 2011.12 NT CHS

    Requirements: Any Garmin device and software supporting NT maps and Chinese language

    The official Garmin China maps have artificial shift (coordinate deviation) added for national security reasons. Using these maps on normal GPS devices or software will not display your actual location on the map. Instead, you will be a few hundred meters away from your actual location. Only GPS devices and software approved to be sold in the China market have additional built-in firmware or program to use these maps without shift problems. Even so, the saved waypoints, routes, tracks are still shifted. Neither can topo maps be used with them.

    Venus is a series of maps derived from the official Garmin China maps but with shifts corrected. Nothing but the coordinates are changed, so all road, POI info, as well as routing, searching capabilities remain intact. Saved waypoints, routes, tracks will have no shift problems. Compatible with topo maps too. These maps can be used on any regular Garmin GPS devices and software as other maps. However, some maps are in Chinese language only and require Chinese support on your device to display and search in Chinese.

    Disclaimers:
    1. No guarantee or warranty is given. Use at your own risk.
    2. The correction is not perfect yet. A few places may have a gap between roads.

    For this 2011.12 map:
    a. Map is locked.
    b. Map ID is 2111.
    c. All road and POI names are in simplified Chinese.
    d. This map should fix the search problem of 2011.11 map that many users had.

    The type 5 have all-in-1 file; map, JCV, Dem, 3D + ASR.
    I had tested them OK on my 3790 SG/MY, except the ASR, all original file is "LOCKED", need un-Lock process.
