Quote from: Boyd on November 17, 2010, 05:13:27 PMYes, SP3 is a recent change to Mapsource. You could try an earlier version if you don't want to deal with that. Perry has archived them here: http://www.gawisp.com/perry/mapsource/The whole concept of how mapsource works almost universally confuses people. There are constant posts about it here from new users. It's not like most software where you open the files you want to use. Maps must be installed into the program and this is not trivial - it involves modifying the Windows registry. After installing you definitely want to just leave the .img files alone. This isn't made very clear unfortunately.And Garmin is not going to help you with free maps like these. As far as they are concerned, we don't exist. Maybe not such a bad thing; at least they don't harass us for using their proprietary map format.
