    Thanks for the message but I already have the unlocking code the problem was that every time I tried to enter the code and press next it would come up with the message unable to connect to the internet, I went onto the Garmin website and found a download to overcome the problem. This problem only occurs when you are using windows vista.



    Thanks again Richard

Have you tried doing with the internet explorer instead of with mapsource? Youll need a printer or a piece of paper to jot down the unlock code when you fullfilled your payment.

How to load topo to external hard drive.


Hello,

All that you will need to do to load the TOPOs to an SD card is insert them into your nuvi > plug the unit into the PC > open Garmins MapInstall program or if you are using he older version of the TOPOs you will be using MapSource.

Hope this helps!

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.

HOW DO YOU LOAD MAPS TO THE GPS UNIT?


You will need to load the MapSource software on your PC then load the maps into MapSource. After the maps are loaded and unlocked you can plug your GPS into your PC with the USB cable and load the maps.

Hope this Helps.

Map down load


You can view segments of the maps at the Garmin site and it will show you how much detail there is.
Go to http://www8.garmin.com/cartography/mapSource/topous.jsp#
and on the far right side of the page, you'll see a link to Mapsource Map Viewer Topo USA 2008. Click on that and zoom in to your area.
Yes, you can download the map segments to your unit.

How do i load into my nuvi660 a garmin usa topo 2008


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.

Notes:
  • 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.
  • Works with Windows Vista.
