Mapsource

Postby yogi57 » Thu 2009-08-06, 14:04:01

I was looking for a copy of mapsource. I need it to load waypoints to my nuvi. I used my sister's before but her copy is in California.

I don't have a Nuvi, but it looks like GSAK can send the waypoints to a bunch of Nuvi models.

I have a Nuvi 350. With GSAK you can actually go paperless on the Nuvi, name, GC name,full description, ratings, hints, when it was placed last and last four logs.

But you need to have a wheelbarrow to haul it into the woods. :P

I know there's a macro to load all the cache infor for the nuvi but I just want to load the waypoints. I use the nuvi to get to general area then switch to my handheld.

Here is a way to get MapSource for free legally without resorting to a Torrent Download service:

http://abuhawa.wordpress.com/2008/07/26 ... mapsource/

It basically involves installing Garmin's free "Training Center", then getting the MapSource updater as mentioned previously.
