hi all. i hope someone can point me in the right direction. i am buying a new laptop and need to get mapsource with my downloaded gpsfiledepot maps and also the web updater onto my new pc. can anyone help me? thanks.

 

I'm a Mac guy and not a PC person, but I'd assume that they would automatically transfer over when you do a migration to your new machine. Windows can do a migration to the new machine can't it?

oddly enough, we ended up buying a macbook pro. which did you have first, the gpsr or the mac? any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

I wonder why often not so tech-ish people end up buying Mac, then wonder why it isn't working.

 

i wonder why people make silly assumptions. the Mac is working fine. i haven't even tried to install mapsource or basecamp or whatever on it as of yet. i figured maybe i could get some tips from a Mac user before i start, and actually my original post was about getting mapsource transferred over to a pc anyway. as i said, i ended up buying a mac. do you have anything substantive to add?

Sure the Mac is a very nice machine, still it's very incompatible with sillions of programs, unless you know how to handle them, if you can live with that.

Problems will be bigger then a mapsource transfer.

Garmin has a Mac site

And I did read the next message, MS has his problems also.
