maps could not be opened on mapsource.

Postby alanpjs2 » Sat Apr 02, 2016 5:27 pm

"some maps could not be opened because the following mapsource products are not installed" error happened when i tried to transfer maps from my nuvi 42LM to computer. It says successfully received.

I can see recent tracks but with no map at all.

Or...is there any new Garmin software similar to mapsource to view our navigation history?

Never mind, i already solved this problem.

Actually i didn't install the latest MFM map from here: http://malfreemaps.com/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=15455

I only "received from nuvi device" to computer only the maps, tracks, waypoints, etc, but didn't install the latest MFM.

How did you view your maps on map source?

I can't load gmapsupp.img onto map source.

Thanks

Hi,

You need to run the .exe file downloaded from MFM.
After that, only you open mapsource.

today I open Mapsource again, and the map missing. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Then i just downloaded the latest MFM-Garmin-161031.exe, run it, then do one important step at Mapsource software:
View>Switch To Product>select Map with the date that I just installed (Malfreemaps 161031).

Then, all working fine... =D> =D> =D>

Just wondering, is there any alternative software to view map and history from our Nuvi at computer other than Mapsource?
Mapsource is outdated already,and no support also...hmmm.
