Garmin old gpsmap76 does not have sufficient resources to load MSM maps. It only has 8M memory with no ability to use external SD. FYI MSM V227 needs approximately 27M. Even the free version needs about 26M.

You may try these steps:
  1. Download and install (create) GMAPSUPP.IMG locally in PC: [IMG] GM-MySin Jan 2008 (Free)
  2. Connect GPSMap76 to PC using serial cable.
  3. Run SendMap20, add GMAPSUPP.IMG.
  4. As GPSMap76's memory is limited to 8MB, you need to remove some maps (original size is about 21MB). Any IMG files (see File info) can be safely deleted. Remove until "Approx. size of maps:" is projected below 8MB.
  5. If "Auto" connection is selected, just click "Upload maps to GPS".
  6. Otherwise, if not successful, try with Com port that works.

Hi rizz538, you need to be more specific in explaining your problem. First of all, can you confirm that your Garmin model is GPS76? If so, looking at the specs, apparently it does not accept map data except POI data. Furthermore, the connection interface is serial, not USB.

Or, maybe you're actually referring to Garmin GPSMAP76? Well, this one still uses serial connection, but able to accept map data. Nevertheless, the built-in memory is only 8MB, so you need to use Mapsource with installed Malsingmaps map to select only some of the map tiles so that it would fit into the limited memory.

However, there is one problem though, current map version is compiled in a format not usable in these older Garmins, and the only working maps are the older v3.09 and any version prior to that. Please read this topic to learn how to acquire the map: Maps woes...

Having said that, if however your GPS comes with a USB interface, then maybe the model in question is Garmin GPSMAP76C / GPSMAP76CS. If so, you may download the USB driver from here or here. But not unlike the Garmin GPSMAP76, it's compatible only with the older v3.09 map.

Garmin GPS76 does not accept map data except POI data, so I don't think MSM v3.xx map is transferable to this model.

Nevertheless, you can try acquire and install MSM v3.09 and see whether POI data is transferable.
