Mapsource is just the software to view maps....

Now you need to install the maps from here:

Are you looking at a blank screen in Mapsource?

If you have installed it correctly, go to the menu at the top, from one of the drop down selection (I can't remember which one), you will find the Map version 5.53, that you've installed, and select it.

Yes, i only saw a black screen. When i try to open the map, i didn't work. The file type of the map is .img, but there is no .img file type in the drop down selection.

or maybe i installed at the wrong folder? i installed the maps in C:\Garmin\MSM\MNT.
