This map is totally useless for finding your location in China, which is probably why you are buying it. Can be as much as a quarter to a full mile off. I have had a long email exchange with Garmin upon return from China on the subject. Apparently, the Chinese government requires a "shift" to be put into the map program that accounts for this dislocation. Garmin's response on how to fix this was convoluted and abstruse, requiring elaborate programming (creating new waypoints, pulling the card ou...

This map never worked in China, total fiasco. Asked Garmin for help, never answered. Still fighting for a reinbursment.

This product is absolutely useless in China. Does not provide accurate positioning and the information is so off the map that it renders the product unusable.

Initially, I was having the same offset problems with my China map, finally, after communicated with Garmin Taiwan and China, my Garmin is now working fine with this map...essentially, Garmin has omitted a "006B082300.bin" file in their earlier batch of SD card that were sold in the United States, once, this "bin" file is copied to the SD card, it will solve all the offset problems faced...It is sad that Garmin didn't recall their faulty product swiftly to avoid all the inconvenient caused to th...

I asked Garmin technical support about this and got this reply (June 1, 2009):Thank you for contacting Garmin International. It is not intentional on our part, however the Chinese government does "shift" the mapping.I think this is mainly to with China's legislation in regards to security in China and the use of GPS devices, so as to distort it not to give an accurate reading.We would not be able to guarantee the accuracy of the mapping. Some customers have found it useful and some have not.

I bought this before a two month trip to China. I checked it first in the US, and it had the maps of China, and i was able to identify my main places of interest. However when I arrived in China I was stunned to see that the maps were all offset from actual positions. I would be on a highway, and it would show me as a mile out in the ocean. Garmin technical support was little help in resolving the problem either.I began to be worried that this was not an original map, because it didn't have ...

This map product is not only out of date on what roads and expressways exist, but there exists a shift from real location. If tracking on a long stretch of road, it can be seen clearly because the track created by the GPS unit runs off to one side by a 100 meters or more. Makes it tough to navigate in a city.

China shift
 
This product is indeed useless if you want to navigate in China. I talked to Garmin after getting back from China and finding the maps have a"shift" in them that puts you off by several thousand feet. This shift is also not consist about the country. Garmin claimed to be unaware of the problem and I directed them to several websites documenting the problem. They said they would get back to me but nothing (it has been several months)

Trash. It's better to buy a GPS (loaded w/China maps) in China.
 
I had purchased & used the China NT 2008 map with my Garmin Oregon 400T within the last month. This was a useless combination. It gave me loop-the-loop navigation, failed to show travelways over 10 years old, and was generally off by 100s of feet. This product deserves negative stars as it is also a waste of time. I would not even resell it to anyone as it would wreck my reputation. Certainly Garmin's version of this map has wrecked their reputation. Recommend purchasing a GPS in China - like ma...

Absolutely Worthless As-Is -- DO NOT BUY
 
Despite the other reviews on this site, I purchased this software with the understanding that Garmin had corrected the previously described map offset. Guess what? They did not.On my GPS, my actual vs. indicated position on the map is off by at least 500 yards, making the maps completely useless for point-to-point navigation (which is the point of having a GPS and associated maps to begin with). Garmin had indicated prior to purchase that the maps would work fine with my 60CSx, ev...
