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.

Why is the update for the Garmin Nuvi 200 $70 on Garmin's website? Shouldn't these updates cost less if I am downloading directly from their website? Is there a free version anywhere?


Map updates are not free. It takes time and money for Garmin to research the new roads, POIs, routes etc.

Software updates ARE free. If you are looking to update the unit's software - download Garmins WEBUPDATER, and after you install it from that link, and plug in your device - your PC will recognize/check and update (if necessary) to the newest version every time.

Maps are written with proprietary software and not available anywhere for a free download.

POIs for Street Pilot 2610


Sometimes going to Garmin's web site can help answer questions like this. Garmin has discontinued the StreetPilot 2610, which means it has not been produced for some time. This is from the manual of the 2610/2650:

CD-ROM:
Accepts downloadable map detail from
Garmin PC-based MapSource® City
Navigator™ DVD (included), which
provides street-level detail, addresses,
listings of nearest restaurants, hotels,
ATMs and more. Note: Requires
CompactFlash® card (128 MB CF card included)2

Have you tried downloading the update again? It's possible it did not download correctly, If this doesn't work, it may be possible to download the previous version again.
