Re: Download & use Mapsource for your error reporting

#241 Post by dchoo » Mon Jun 22, 2009 12:13 pm

I have successfully downloaded v3.04 and installed it on my device.

However, my Mapsource still shows my older version (v2.29). How do I view v3.04 on Mapsource? I have read "Adding new maps to Mapsource" (http://www.malsingmaps.com/wiki/index.p ... _Mapsource) and tried to click on the link to "Mapsource mapset installer" but this link does not exist.

Would appreciate some help. Thank you.

If you install the map product while Mapsource is running, exit and restart Mapsource, and you should see the newer version in Mapsource.

Use the same unlock code to unlock map product in Mapsource.

If using Mapsource v6.13.7, select Utilties > Unlock Maps. Then click Next.
Click Yes, I have 25 char unlock code. Then click Next.
Click I have 25 char unlock code, I will type in. Then click Next.
Enter 25 char unlock codes, then click Next.
When asked to register, Click No.

For later versions, Utilities > Manage Map Products.
Select Unlock Regions tab, and click Add.
Enter 25 char unlock codes, click OK.

I've tried that and unfortunately it does not work. I've updated my Mapsource and also reinstalled it. The version still remains as v2.29.

I used the installer from this link: viewtopic.php?f=64&t=16921.

Anyway, I just managed to figure it out. I went into C:\Garmin\GPSMappers\MySin and click on "Uninstall", and then reinstalled v3.04. v3.04 is working on Mapsourse now. Thank you for your help.

Sorry, I did not realize that you are updating from previous v2.9 to v3.xx. The steps you did is the correct method, v2.9 must first be uninstalled before installing v.3xx.

Try this link.

And thanks to you, I found that v6.15.7 is out yesterday. :thumbsup:

Edit : I think I know what happened. Look here for v6.15.6.

I tried to install MapSource software version 6.16.3. But installation instruction said that it will only work if you own a previous version of the MapSource :-k

Where can I find the previous version to install?
