Question about Garmin zumo 550 GPS Receiver
I have installed my garmin software on my new laptop with a Vista OS. It initially worked but will not open and comes up with an error message "Access was denied when Mapsource tried to read from the registry." Anyone know of a fix? GPS is a Zumo 550
I now this issue, and it's quite easy to work around, right mouse click on the executable and select run as administrator.

I had the same problem with Vista Ultimatre and a new install of Mapsource from the Metroguide North America v8. It would load just after install, but not start up when clicking the program file. I got the update here: http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=209

You have to do the following :
1) run regedit
2) got to HKCU/software/Garmin/mapsource
3) right click on mapsource and select Permissions
4) Click the Allow full control then OK
5) do the same for HKLM/software/garmin/mapsource
