Title: Newest Version of MapSource
Post by: astainback on March 01, 2019, 09:45:21 PM
I refreshed my pc.
Now I am working on getting everything reinstalled.
I ran into the BaseCamp issue with maps installed, but not showing.
I created c:\programfiles(x86)\Garmin\MAPS to put everything in one place.
The MY TRAILS file from jbensman fixed the topo install issue.
Everything shows great now, except for the MyTrails file... All I see are random black dots.  No clue why this is not working.

Anyway, for track management, I always liked MapSource better than BaseCamp.
I got the newest file from the Garmin site, but it says that it is an update file and gives an error that no previous version is found.

My questions are :

What is the newest and best (hopefully the same) version of MapSource?

Do I need to find an older version, install it, then update it?

I found the link with all the old versions of BaseCamp and MapSource, but I hate installing and reinstalling software over and over if I can help it.

Thank you in advance guys/gals!!

Adrian

Nevermind...
I just ran the install again (after getting basecamp setup) and it worked.

But, the My Trails map is still not working.
Looks the same in basecamp and mapsource.

That's not something to mind exactly. Get over it.
