You can't export an Excel or text file into GPS language. If there is text in a file you wish to convert to waypoints, use this website.

Using dnr garmin or map source how do I transfer from excel


I've just had to do this. Somewhat annoying and I'm sure there must be a quicker way. Let me know if you find one. <br /><br />Firstly you need ArcGIS or something that can create .shp files. Load the Excel file into this. In Arc you need to right click the table and display the x y data (just to make sure it's all okay). Then save as a layer. Then export as an .shp file. <br /><br />You can the open the.shp in DNRGarmin and upload to your GPS..,<br /> <!-- from fixya rte -->

I have lost my Mapsource Setup cd for my Garmin GPS


  1. 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.
  2. Unpack or extract the content of MapSource_6136.exe
    downloaded using WinRAR.
  3. From the extracted files, run MAIN.msi.
  4. Then, run Setup.exe. Note: The sequence to execute Main.msi and then Setup.exe is important to avoid “Previous MapSource not found!” error.
  5. Garmin MapSource now installed.

Warning on my garmin gps to download a free version of city navigator NT v 8


FREE? Yes there is a way believe it or not...
TO GET 2009 MAP IS NOT EASY! Software update is, from the Garmin site you can update software easily BUT THE MAP... you must purchase for $69.99 OR if you're a technical person who knows the following instructions you can save some $$$

search torrent for
"CNNANT2009-1 MapID 396"
under torrent sites, you know what you're doing.

Use these instructions if you have downloaded it.

Download these first:
cgpsmapper.exe
gmaptool.exe
MapSetToolKit.exe
and MapSource where u can directly get from Garmin site
http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=209

Create these folders on the root drive: (I will choose one to make things easier, you can change)
C:/grmtmp
C:/grmtmp/extract

Connect your GPS to USB, and BACKUP then remove
X:/Garmin/gmapprom.img and gmapprom.sum (may be gmapsupp.[img+sum]) approx. 1GB

1) Copy gmapsupp.img from this torrent to C:/grmtmp;
2) Extract gmaptool.exe, cgpsmapper.exe and mapsettoolkit.exe to C:/grmtmp/extract
3) Open a command prompt, and navigate to the extract folder ("cd/grmtmp/extract")
4) Run "gmaptool -S ../gmapsupp.img" Note that is -(CAPITAL S), lower case s is for different option
5) The above will extract files, you will get some warnings about 10 degrees. Ignore them.
6) Run "cgpsmapper mapset00.mp"
7) Run "MapSetToolKit"
8) In MapSetToolKit, press "Install A Existing Mapset"
8a) TDB File: "mapset00.tdb
8b) Overview map: "mapset00.img"
8c) Registry name: "WhateverYouWant" (I did "Grm2009.1Update")
8d) Leave TYP files blank, and hit "Install"
9) Close MapSetToolKit and run MapSource
10) Ignore any requests to unlock map, not ready yet.
11) Go to "Utilities-Get Unit ID" and Find Device with your GPS plugged in USB. Write down Unit ID.
12) Run Garmin Unlock Utility, Enter that Unit ID at the top.
13) Select under "Select Map Product"
14) Ender 396 for the FID/MapID, use the Generate button to get 25char code.
15) In MapSource go to "Utilities-Manage Map Products"
16) Go to "Unlock Regions" Tab, and hit "Add...", enter 25char code, comment optional
17) Now on the main MapSource screen, type 'm' to enable map tool.
18) You should see a large white rectangle, with rectangle outlines (these represent NA maps)
19) Click and drag to select them all, you can click "Map Set Name" if wanted.
20) Click the "Send to Device" button. Wait an hour. Enjoy.

Mapsource not recognizing Garmin type files


.img files do not open directly in Mapsource. You will need one of the many freewares available on the net. I use MapSetToolKit. The file is available at http://cypherman1.googlepages.com/. You can find out how to use this software from http://cypherman1.googlepages.com/intruction_en.

Garmin gps60 connected to PC


You have the USB cable but what software? Have you got the MapSource CD? If not, there's a free and legal workaround. Download the free Garmin Training Center (from Garmin site), open it to check it works, close it then download the Mapsource update file, also from Garmin site. You'll now have MapSource and can uninstall Training Center. You'll need maps though - depending where you are there's some free maps otherwise get a Garmin map to make it easier to plan trips.

Unable to send and open data sent to my Garmin GPS from Anquet map. I planned a route on my Anquet map software with wayponits etc but was uable to send it to my gps. I have enquired with Anquet and they...


Currently, the POI Loader only supports CSV files because that is the format that most data vendors support. POI Loader may support additional formats in the future.

MapSource only supports .mps, .gdb and .gpx files. You can save files as .txt files if you wish to use this data in other applications.

Sadly Garmin does not produce any software which can convert .txt files.

However, this maybe possible with GPS Utility. Please note GPS Utility is not Garmin software and Garmin does not support this. Click on the following link for more information:
