    Default Try to convert Nuvi 50us to Asian.

    What I tried.
    1). Us boot.bin + CHN fw_all.bin--> .rgn (.gcd won't work)
    2). Us boot.bin + SgMy fw_all.bin--> .rgn (.gcd won't work)

    Result
    Nuvi start , Garmin logo appeared for 2 seconds and then power off.
    Plug in with USB/charger + press power on--> nuvi won't start.

    Press power on button for 15 seconds then release.
    Nuvi will start with shortly appear of Garmin logo then power off.

    Preboot.
    Run updater.exe , connect comp-nuvi , press for 15 seconds , release finger , suddently press finger at left upper conner , then we are in preboot mode.

    Not yet to try with original Asian firmware.
    I guess nuvi will be dead.

    someone told the unit part number is written in a special memory area. Tough to convert from US.

    But at least the older Nuvi50 CHN was able to convert US and SG. I assume the Asian unit may not a big different.
