How to Get a Free Garmin Map Update by Robert Kingsley Global positioning system units — such as the Garmin unit you keep in your car — can make driving to unknown locations as simple as cruising your own neighborhood. The unit determines your exact position using GPS satellites and compares your location to its stored maps to determine points of interests around you — whether roads, restaurants or rivers. With accurate maps, the unit will provide concise instructions to reach your destination, but if its maps are out of date, it could send you the wrong way down a one-way street, use inefficient routes or call for a turn where none exists. Garmin gives you the chance to download a free map update with the purchase of a new unit to ensure accurate instructions and proper performance of your new device. If the download button does not appear, your device is not eligible for free updates.

GPS is very impressive but scary at the same time because the satellites can actually track where I am. I do have some experience with GPS because I borrowed from my friend a few times and managed to know how to find a location, updating the unit software and also looking for the latest maps. The menu on the GPS unit is pretty straight forward and easy to understand but the technical part such as putting more than one gmapsupp.
I found out that MapSource, a software provided by Garmin is able to create, view and edit waypoints, routes and tracks as well as to find items, addresses and POIs. When I tried to install, I got the error message: Previous MapSource not found! Setup will terminate. It seems like the file that I downloaded is an update and not the full installation setup. Luckily there is a trick on how to install MapSource without having the original installation CD.

Run the installer and when you see the Welcome screen go to the Temp folder. Look for a folder with 7zxxx. Copy that whole folder to your chosen location.
