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.

I have lost my Mapsource Setup cd for my Garmin GPS


  1. Download MapSource software updater from Garmin. The version as of December 4, 2007 is 6.13.6, and the trick also works on Map Source version 6.13.5.
  2. Unpack or extract the content of MapSource_6136.exe
    downloaded using WinRAR.
  3. From the extracted files, run MAIN.msi.
  4. Then, run Setup.exe. Note: The sequence to execute Main.msi and then Setup.exe is important to avoid “Previous MapSource not found!” error.
  5. Garmin MapSource now installed.

I have no CD software but i want to install online software, pls


There is no software for your etrex GPS to install on your computer. You can, however, purchase Garmin maps to install onto your GPS. When you purchase this mapping software, it will include a copy of Mapsource, which is used to upload and download tracks and waypoints to your unit.

Garmin gps60 connected to PC


You have the USB cable but what software? Have you got the MapSource CD? If not, there's a free and legal workaround. Download the free Garmin Training Center (from Garmin site), open it to check it works, close it then download the Mapsource update file, also from Garmin site. You'll now have MapSource and can uninstall Training Center. You'll need maps though - depending where you are there's some free maps otherwise get a Garmin map to make it easier to plan trips.

IQue3600 maps unavailable


You can get City Navigator 2008 CD from your local Garmin dealer. Cost around $100.
It updates via MapSource program and USB connection to IQue 3600.
Do not get "NT" maps as 3600 does not understand "NT" compression

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

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.

Garmin nuvi 250 mapsource


Verify that you have the correct basemap for the country that you are in. There are two maps inside a new Garmin. The basemap which shows all the major highways and mapsource which shows all the street. If you don't have the correct basemap try changing 'Navigation' Advoidance to avoid highways and Toll Roads.
