MapSource™ is compatible with all GARMIN GPS systems except the GPS 100 family of products (GPS 100AVD, GPS 100MRN, GPS 100MIL, SRVY II) and panel mount aviation units. Trip and waypoint planning is possible for all other units; however, the map transfer feature is only compatible with the following GARMIN GPS units: GPS III+, GPS V,, GPSMAP 76, 12MAP, NavTalk, GPSMAP 162, GPSMAP 168 Sounder, StreetPilot, StreetPilot ColorMap, StreetPilot III GPSMAP 295, eMap, eTrex Vista, and eTrex Legend, GPSMAP 176, GPSMAP 176C, GPSMAP 182, GPSMAP 188 Sounder, GPSMAP 232, GPSMAP 238 Sounder, GPSMAP 2006, and GPSMAP 2010.

MapSource software allows you to view color maps on a personal computer, with zoom and pan functions for easy map browsing. Use the trip and waypoint manager functions to create waypoints, routes, and tracks, and transfer them between your PC and nearly all GARMIN GPS units. This is excellent for planning your next outdoor adventure, business trip, vacation, or recreational outing without ever leaving your house.

For those units that accept the map transfer feature (see product list above), users can either download MapSource CD ROM content to data cards or directly to their units depending on the GPS product that they own. To download information directly to your GPS, simply connect your GARMIN GPS to your PC using a PC interface cable. Select the map areas on screen, and with the click of the mouse, the information downloads to your GPS. Some units require a GARMIN data card to download. GARMIN offers a variety of blank data cards, including an 8MB, 16MB, 32MB, 64MB and 128MB. Choose the size that best fits your required coverage area.

When using a locked MapSource product, the real-time track plotting function will work only with a valid unlock code for the GPS unit being used.
