GPS: Garmin 60csx
I have a garmin 60csx, and i have been using an old version of Mapsource 6.13.x i think. I had GM-mysin already installed in the past.

I was having some bugs on it so i went to do a software update to 6.15.x. However now that i got the updated mapsource, i got the error when starting it. The error is "There is a problem with GM-mySin installation. Please re-install GM-mySin to start Mapsource again"

As it was years ago that i first did this, i'm now pretty lost. Can some kind soul please help me with what i should do next to fix this?

Thanks in advance

GM-mySin is 2009 old data. Why not download & install the latest v5.42 for mapsource? 60csx has no issue to use NT maps.

Thanks, i didn't realize that i could use NTmaps for the 60csx. The wiki only pointed to the nuvi models.

Guys, thanks for your guidence and help so far.

I've downloaded and installed MSM NT 542 for Mapsource and also installed it on the 60csx. I've also updated the firmware for the gps to 4.0.

I do see the NT542 map in mapsource, however on my 60csx, the maps available still show up as North Pen Mal-R v1.3.09 GPSmappers Dec 2009. There's a whole bunch of 2009 maps there too. I followed the wiki-newbie guide to copy the gmapsupp_v542.img into the GPS (i did it via the usb cable rather than the microSD card).

However i didn't delete the 'old' gmapsupp.img file. As it was in a different folder.

The the question is how do i see the 542 map? Do i need to delete the old img file or is there a setting that i need to change?

Sorry again for the dumb questions, this truly is confusing to me.

If you have already installed mapsource version of v5.42, why don't you transfer the map directly from mapsource?

It does not matter how you access the SD card (by card reader or by USB cable). The contents should be the same and the 60CSx does not have a user-accessible internal memory. The map should be copied to a \Garmin folder in the SD card.

????
What different folder?

To be able to read the v5.42, it must reside in a \Garmin folder as gmapsupp.img. If you have an older map, just delete it. You cannot activate 2 maps of the same geographical region simultaneously.

I followed the 'other' set of instructions to copy the file into \Map.

I kinda figured that i should copy it into \Garmin, and delete the old file. So i see the new map now.

Thanks guys for all the help and support! Really appreciate it.

Good that it works for you now.

\Map only works for the newer GPSes - the 2xxx and 1xxx range. For older 3-digit models and all handhelds, you can only use \Garmin and if in the SD card, the only filename that is recognised is gmapsupp.img
