1. MAPSOURCE INSTALLATION
- DOWNLOAND MAPSOURCE
- MUST USE WINRAR TO VIEW THE FILE
- RUN .MSI FILE (MUST)
- RUN SETUP FILE
- MAPSOURCE INSTALLED -BUT EMPTY
2. MAP INSTALLATION
- GO BELOW INSTALL THE MAP, THIS IS BASICALLY CREATE A PULL DOWN MENU IN MAPSOURCE SO THAT YOU CAN CHOSE WHICH MAP YOU WANT TO USE.
-CHECK C DRIVE, GARMIN FOLDER, MUST HAVE THE MSM FOLDER
3. GET THE MAP
READ SOME WHERE, MAPSOURCE IS OBSOLETE, NO WONDER THE DOWNLOAD SITE IS NOT UPDATED ANYMORE, AND IT IS REPLACE WITH BASECAMP, THE DOWNLOAD SITE IS AS LATEST AS OCT 2012.
Donwloaded the Garmin mapsource and try to install but failed..error - previous mapsource not found -
From here it seem like Garmin only provide update but first you need the original mapsource software..so how to get around this?
This guy give steps below
- Download MapSource software updater from Garmin. The version as of December 4, 2007 is 6.13.6, and the trick also works on Map Source version 6.13.5.
- Unpack or extract the content of MapSource_6136.exe
downloaded using WinRAR.
- From the extracted files, run MAIN.msi or MSMAIN.msi.
- Then, run Setup.exe.
Now I can see the .msi file inside WinRar..run .msi file then run setup file from WinRar..it worked..excellent..
next is to get the map..how?
open up the mapsource it is blank..now installing garmin training map , so that can display some map in mapsource..after download the garmin training map then what? here..it never explain further..
actually to make the Garmin unit work, according to here, you just need the img file and created a folder in the SD Card called Garmin and put the file there. [http://www.malsingmaps.com/wiki/index.php?title=Newbies_with_Garmin_Streetpilot_or_Nuvi_GPSr]
here is another forum talking about how to get the Garmin work fast..click here..basically similar to above just copy the .img file into SD card..
Found this, quick good step by step..but stop at installation not need to continue on application..
need to install the map using this forum link ..here..the file is as below
after installed this it work, now can see on the top left corner there is a pull down menu to chose the map..
now i can see the map in the mapsource, next how to transfer this map to Garmin SD card.?
Just do the transfer to the Device, make sure the Find Device is your SD Card if you are not plugging in your Garmin physically. check the folder, you should see the latest gmapsupp.img file there..
