Mapsource Patch Failure
« on: February 26, 2009, 02:03:53 PM »
Anybody know why when I would download the latest Mapsource patch from Garmin's website it fails to see that I have a version already loaded so it gives me an error?  I just have the Garmin folder set-up and within that folder is the Mapsource file.

Here is the link from the Garmin website.  http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=209

The version is MapSource software version 6.15.4 . 

It does not recognize that I have Mapsource loaded regardless of which folder I copy the patch into when I launch it.

Installed fine for me on Windows Vista SP1.  I installed it directly from Mapsource using "Check for Updates" from the Help Menu.

I installed it from the website and it also worked fine.  Just uninstall your current mapsource (it won't remove any maps) and install the new one.
