I was using Garmin's Beta version of its MapSource software until it expired on Oct. 1. I am also a Premium Member at Geocaching.com. I discovered that I could upload a geocache wpt directly to MapSource (MS opened when you clicked on the gpx upload option). Very handy. The Beta version expired, I uploaded the latest version of MapSource, and now I can't do the MapSource/GPX thing, get an error message that "****.gpx is not a valid Win32 application". Anybody know why this no longer works?

Try this:

  • save the *.gpx file on your hard drive
  • go the folder in windows explorer
  • right click the file
  • choose menu "open with"
  • choose "choose program..."
  • click "browse" in the new window
  • go to your installation folder of Mapsource (for me it is C:\Garmin\)
  • click on "MapSource.exe"
  • tick the box named "always use the selected program to open this kind of file" (positioned just above the browse button)
  • hit the "ok" button

This way you link gpx files to mapsource. Should work...
