The nuvi 205 has mapsource pre-loaded. You can buy it separately from Garmin, or follow the way shown by rcmaps on page 1 of this thread.

Mark your waypoints in MapSource and then save as a GDB file.

Try to uninstall your mapsource. Install Garmin training center first, then install mapsource. I did that and the v6.14.1 works well with my vista. :D

i had the same problem earlier....here's how i solved it..

1) uninstall the old MFM map
2) after the un-installation, launch mapsource and just try to do a find using other maps i.e. Garmin, MSM, anything
3) then install the new MFM map...

and try the *find* again...it ought to work...

Need help from you chaps. I have Mapsource 6.13.7 installed from CD and running well since August (I thought), but I now realised it's actually not running so well when I got the unlock codes for MSM G V2.30. Haha.

Each time I try to unlock the map or hit Ctrl+U, I get a message "Unable to start the UnlockWizard. Please reinstall this program and try again."

I can generate the gmapsup via the MSM installer and copy it directly for use in the gpsr, but I can't load the detail map onto Mapsource due to this UnlockWizard problem.

I have used the Mapsource CD to reinstall it after uninstalling; didn't work.
Reinstalled from CD after I've removed all Garmin products using regedit; no help too.
Finally, I've reinstalled after I've removed "Mapsource" and "Garmin Trip and Waypoint Manager v5" using CCleaner. Yet, I'm unable to get the UnlockWizard to work.

Have I missed a step? I'm a Macuser here (still confused with the c/ and D/ drive naming and terminologies), and trying to get this to work on a Pentium III

Thanks.

LL
