If Mapsource is free why does Garmin prompt me for 8 digit product key when I tried to unlock the 2.30 MSM map in Mapsource? Pls help.

Maybe u try to unlock MSM maps the wrong way
or u have the non free Mapsource :mrgreen:

Our unlock code is 25 characters not 8 digits !

After getting the unlock code n install the maps (V3.03) in mapsource
just click - Utilities / manage map products / unlock regions / add ...
copy n paste both your unlock code one by one by repeating add
Click map tool n select your map ( yellow box covering map tiles u interest )
Repeat selection for next mapset
attached your GPS n click Send to device

:D ... FREE MAPSOURCE click here
