Thanks Bro. Have read that earlier but I'm stuck here:

"3. Download Mapsource Recommended Old version 6.13.7 click here
http://www.sendspace.com/file/2siza6"

Now I have the 2siza6 file, what to do with it?

Thanks Silver.

Now I know the problem ... I dont have the Mapsource as I'm using Garmin Mobile XT installed by my phone shop. Looks complicated but let me try.

Anyway that I can get the full version Mapsource (I mean the version that come with the CD) so I dont have to go thru the hassle?

Hi all, i was wondering how to install new maps into my samsung ace which is using ppg x5 with 10mmdd.
So, i google-ed about it and came across this site, and just registered few minutes ago. :D

I downloaded the 110301 version and thought that it would be fine for me to just copy the whole folder and rename it with the country name but i found that the file i downloaded was a .exe file.

Can i have some help with the installation of the updated map ? thanks

b.t.w : :rox: :rox:

after searching for a while in the site, i know now...^^...
