Downloading mapsource
« on: October 09, 2009, 06:57:13 PM »
Hello I am new to this website and using GPS units and I need some help downloading Topo Maps. I purchased a new 60CSx and When I try to Install Mapsource from the link on this website I get the following error message ( US topo installation not found download will terminate) I am confused because  I have to download it before it can be found and If it were found I would not be trying to download it. I do have the disk downloaded for Trip & Waypoint manager but there must be some other software I need to download Topo Maps. I would also like to download software to enable me to use my 60 like a Tom Tom or a street pilot for finding address or business if thats possible  Please help   Thanks Tony

You will have to install your MapSource Trip & Waypoint Manager first off.

Then, you can get the MapSource update here:
http://www8.garmin.com/software/MapSource_6156.exe

After installing the update, you can download and install Windows versions of maps from this site.

Start there, untill you get that happening, you won't be able to progress.
