But it work just fine before i downloaded the new mapsource. I already uninstall T4A and install it again, but it still doesn't work. can you please help me?
Try skipping the installation wizard and use your coupon code to unlock the maps/GPS online at Garmin's website.
Also if you downloaded the mapsource software online, the download may have been corrupted. You may have to contact garmin tech support to try another download.

Check the 6 phillips head screws that hold the front and back parts of the case together. If you have ever had the battery changed and the screws were not snugged down all the way, the USB connection on the back may not be making contact with the circuit board inside the GPS. If the screws are snug, then you may need to take the unit apart. If you are comfortable with this, removed the 6 phillips head screws. CAREFULLY pull the front and back parts of the case apart. There are wires holding the two halves together so handle these parts carefully. Looking inside at the circuit board, there are some small circuit trace pads (about 4-5 or so), in the area where the USB port would line up. Use the alcohol and q-tip to gently clean these pads and also the little spring connectors on the other part of the case. Carefully, reassemble the case. There is a rubber gasket that fits between the two parts of the case. Make certain it is not kinked or crimped. Gradually snug down each of the 6 phillips screws, working your way from one side of the unit to the other and criss-crossing. You may need to use your fingers and pinch the unit together as you snug a specific screw. When the unit is reassembled, try the USB again. If it still does not work, it may need to go back to the factory.
