Any suggestions?
Trip and Waypoint Manager is sold at about USD25 on Amazon. :)

IIRC, you will not be able to track using Nuvi.

Yeah, no tracking on Nuvi. But i was hoping to contribute some on the MSM map. I've already spotted some errors and some stuff missing on the last edition. :(

You might want to try using Google Earth to illustrate some of this information. I've seen other forumers used it. My suggestion:
  • Errors -> Image capture (screenshots)
  • POIs -> KML
Sorry I can't be of more help.

Thanks. Will check around to see if there are other ways.

3. Install maps from MalSingMaps "GM-MySin v1.26.exe" and "GM-Borneo v1.13.exe"[/i]
I tried the steps above (Step#1 ok) and i got "Previous MapSource not found! Setup will terminate" message when i did Step#2. What am i missing?
Anyone else can confirm that the "TrainingCenter" workaround no longer works to get "MapSource" to run, as bimmer posted? :-k

I was using:
- TrainingCenterForWindows_323.exe (this one installs ok)

Then i tried:
- MapSource_6131.exe (did not work)

Tried this also:
- MapInstall_3111.exe (did not work)

Then lastly:
- MapSourceBeta_61301Beta.exe (did not work also)

The error message was the same each time. Did i get the right version for the various .EXE files? They were all downloaded from Garmin website on 27/08/07.

Mmm ... Did you run it after installation? Which Windows are you on? XP or Vista? :-k
