Tutorials
« on: February 05, 2010, 02:26:32 PM »
Would it be possible to make it much easier for someone to find the tuturial on how to load maps into mapsource and onto thier GPS?  I do not know about others, but people email me on a regular basis about this.  If someone could easily find the tutorial, it would cut down on having to answer emails.  Thanks.

Yea, I get the same thing.

I'm open to suggestions.  I am putting a link to it at the top of the contact me page and was thinking of how to implement it into all the map pages without interfering (pehaps after the download link)?

How about putting a button with Home, contact us, etc. for "Install/Usage Help" When they click on the button they could be sent to a page with a link for the excellent tutorials on how to Install mapsource and how to install the maps to mapssource and your GPS.  By the way, those are really good tutorials!

a readme is probably a good idea; as much as I hate them when I'm installing stuff but I'd guess I'm more of an anomaly.

I added the tutorial links to the contact page and on Monday I'll work on the FAQ article.
