want to ask which Mapsource should I download and install? Because when I try install Mapsource 6.15.6, it said previous Mapsource not found.

Thank you, done.

Now, how can I open my map from the device? If I open img file it was not recognise? How to combine maps? As I want to combine my msm map with topo from mfm as msm map more details about the road and I need topo for my off road purpose.

I just upgrade to Mapsource 6.15.6

Using this version, I noticed that Garmin compiled map has thick fat lines for main road and small thin line for small roads.

Whereas mfm map just show different colour, but same thickness.

I think this is what Garmin says:

Changes made from version 6.14.1 to 6.15.3:

Enhanced the drawing of roads to better distinguish primary from secondary roads.

Not sure if you mean this, but it didn't work.
I just tried to reinstall with "Original Roads" instead of "Full Customization".
It still show thin orange colour in Mapsource for main road instead of big fat road.

Dear Sifus,

I met a problem.. currently my pc hardisk was "kong".. been replace a new hardisk and found that I could not setup Mapsource.

reason.. I have try downloaded latest + earlier version.. and the screen show me that "no previous version mapsource detected".

means, from now on.. I could not enjoy the Mapsource facilities? :cry:
