Anyone been able to download and use maps on a Mac. I would like to be able to view and plan trips.


Pretty much everyone has been able to download maps on the Mac. :) Choose the map you want and just click the download link for the Mac version.


It's downloading as a folder. Doesn't have an install command. Are there specific instructions anywhere.


When you see a folder instead of a map file, that means Garmin MapManager has not been installed on your computer. Download and install Basecamp

It should install three programs

Garmin Basecamp
Garmin MapInstall
Garmin MapManager

Confirm that these are in your Applications folder. After they are installed, that "folder" should change into a "file". When you double-click it, MapManager should open and ask if you want to install the map. Then see these tutorials (unfortunately, I think they're a bit out of date however)
