Mapsource Unlocking maps - 2nd GPS?

Recommended Posts

My husband has a Garmin GPS 60CS and he also has Mapsource. Now we've purchased a second Garmin Etrex Legend (blue one) for our son. When I go to Mapsource to try to send some maps it says they aren't unlocked for that GPS. Do you have to purchase an unlock code for a 2nd gps???

 

THANKS!

Stacey,

 

Mapsource is the base program that all the other mapping program run from. If you have to unlock maps then you either have City Select or City Navigator, both of which need to be unlocked to the GPS. Both CS and CN used to provide 2 unlock codes but that was changed on/about 7 Jun 07. I would try to unlock the program to the GPS and see is it will allow it. If not you could try calling Garmin and see if they will honor the second unlock code.

 

Just to let you know the Legend does not autoroute and with only 8 MB you will not be able to put many maps segments on it anyway. You might want to look at Metroguide or Topo 2008 for the Legend.
