    self same problem



    Need to up[date mapsource to v6.14.1, but cant do from inside MS as the self extracting file has an erro. Going to try to update manually from outside mapsource. Judt update drivers for 705 successfully.



    Never been beaten yet! keep trying, and maybe it will stop raining so I can have a decent ride to test ithe 705. I'll report bak late if I successd.

    Solved!!

    seems you have to carry out events in order, and you need some extra not mentoned in top level starter info, it'sburies in the helpl files.



    First you need the Garmin Communication plugin- not mentioned - this allows your garmin 705 to send its id to mapsource. 2.6.1 is current. and for Msourcce to reach the net.



    Next update Mapsource - outside of ms and install from the downloaded *.exe file.



    Register your products Edge 705 and your topo maps.

    follow the instructions in my garmin



    You then get the 25 digit unlock code.



    In Msource - > utilities> manage maps> second tab unlock regions >. Paste the 25digit code in the box and you're done.



    What a pain!!!

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!

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.

I am trying to unlock my mapsource topo but it will not connect to the internet the disc has loaded but I cannot use the software can you please help


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.

Garmin etrex hxc gps adding m,ore map detail.


You will need to use Mapsource to transfer the maps to your GPSr unit. This should install when you install the Topo Britain program.

You will then choose which map segments you want to transfer, and the program will do the rest.

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.
