Updating maps on mapsource

The View toolbar, which displays map set names, zoom in, zoom out, map scale and map detail settings selection, is also not displayed or shown.

Map Source requires at least a legitimate map installed on Map Source in order to display other free maps that have been installed, probably as a safeguard against unauthorized map usage.

) because you need to have two maps installed before the map selector shows up. Note I still recommend to install Garmin Basecamp nevertheless: Get it here: Please update to at least 6.16.1 -- earlier Mapsource versions miss a lot of ways and streets and make the maps unusable.

People who have bought a Garmin GPS will have a CD shipped with it including Mapsource.

I recommend to use the most uptodate version by Garmin (as of writing this is 6.16.3)Earlier versions of Mapsource (also 6.13.6) are now incompatible with the Velo Maps as they do not show all ways and streets!!!! Note that while Basecamp shows contourlines, Garmin Mapsource doesn't.

Another reason would be that Garmin Mapsource has a search function that is identical to your GPS Device.

The search function is actually much better than the Basecamp search function - but for general use I don't think that makes it worth-wile to stick to Mapsource.

Thus, for the free maps to work on Map Source, a properly licensed map must be installed on the Map Source, which can be map from the series of Map Source World Map, Trip and Waypoin Manager, Metro Guide, City Navigator etc.

Unfortunately, most of these Garmin products are not free.

The added memory can also store new maps if you need to take a business trip to Europe, South America or another country to close a deal.

Installing new maps is easy to do with Garmin's free Mapinstall software.

The most important thing is that the Training Center software is free, and is available for free download for both Windows and Mac OS X platforms.

Introduction Installation Overview Working with Maps Working with tracks, waypoints, routes Working with real time tracking Other features This discussion is based on Mapsource version 4.09.

The advantage is that with Mapsource you can select the region on fullscreen - instead of the small popup screen of Basecamp/Map Installer.
