    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.

    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!!!

How to load topo to external hard drive.


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!

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.

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.
