Re: mapsource update CD

Hi check out this wed site, it will help. HT maps for the Nuvi are NOT for PC use. The map load onto the GPS as you install Mapsouce. Reinstall Mapsouce and take option 3 on the startup page of the program.

Good luck

Most likely you had the 2007 or 2008 maps. Click on the wrench icon, then the maps symbol and then the word "info" or "about" and you should see the current map revision. If you updated it recently, it should now show 2009.

I cant download mapsource to install my australian map cd

If the CD is from Garmin, it will already have Mapsource on it, and it will install when it is installing your maps onto PC. If you ever install any other maps, the CD will check to see if Mapsource is already installed and will skip this procedure.

Map Update Problem

Firs of all I hope you are using Garmin Map Updates for 2009, not 2008. It sounds like there is a connection issue. Make sure you can go into the drive on your computer and see the device as well as access files within it. If that is all fine: I have not seen a troubleshooting section yet unfortunately with Garmin for this map update (came out about 3 weeks ago) so i would try the ones for the older versions, should be the same.

There should be instructions that come on the DVD. You may also visit this site for the latest MAPSOURCE software, version 6.13.5 as of Nov 20,2007.

  • WARNING: This software will not work unless you already own a MapSource product.
  • This version of MapSource no longer supports Windows 98, Windows Me, and Windows NT.
