Mapsource is not finding maps
« on: January 20, 2012, 03:31:23 PM »
I have Windows 7 and after downloading MapSource then Florida topo I follow you steps on how to upload to my Garmin Dakoto 20 when I open the MapSource theres no drop down menu in the upper left corner the zoom mag glass is there only. How do I find the map? Confused...

Try downloading this:

Make sure MS is closed when you install it.  Note that this only shows detail at zooms closer than 7 miles.

Can you see My Trails in MapSource/BaseCamp? 

If so, uninstall FL topo and re-install it, with all map viewers closed.

If not read the tutorials.

in mapsource/basecamp, go to view and make sure BASIC map only isn't checked.

Glad its working because that map should have just worked out of the box; it shouldn't have needed My Trails.
