Have just received my garmin gb topo dvd and the 8 letter code would not work. used a 25 digit code and it said i had unlocked it ok but my garmin etrex keeps saying cant unlock maps? any ideas?


I have had this problem before. You have to make sure you have the proper map data selected in Mapsource before you start selecting data to download to the GPS. I had multiple maps loaded into Mapsource but they weren't all unlocked for the multiple GPSs that I own. if I got the licenses mixed up between the units it wouldn't work. There should be a setting in your option menus.

Hi I have a Garmin eTrex Venture and have downloaded maps from Mapsource. When I turn on the GPS and go to the map page, no map appears on the screen.


Did you download the maps via your PC into Mapsource and then transfer them to the Venture? You have to unlock the maps on your PC with the code which is specific to your unit.

How to Transfer Maps to GPSmap 60csx


You have use the unlock wizard to install the key that is provided with the software. When I bought my Mapsource CitySelect, it came with two keys. The way Garmin does it is, you can install the software as many times as you want on as many machines as you want, but can transfer the maps, data, etc ONLY to unlocked devices. Last I checked Garmin wanted $75 for additional unlocks. Some data is not locked, like Topo maps and some tide points since this data is obtained (by Garmin) from the gov't, which is free for us (wel, minus taxes we pay). Contact Garmin support, they are very attentive.

Garmin streetpilot 2620 in demo mode


Do you have any unlock code for your unit? Delete this code "demo" from MapSource and put unlock code for your unit and try to download to unit a small part of maps.

New Maps - Can't update unit


The new maps will be unlocked to your GPS using the code Garmin supplied you.

You will have to add these maps to a second SD card if your present card is full, or else purchase a larger card. Since all the Mapsource NT 2008 Europe maps are 1,395MB in size, you'll need to purchase at least a 2GB SD card.

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
Craig

Blue chart pacific v8.5- mapsource


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.
