    Default No more PC downloads

    On another forum there is a story circulating, supposedly from Garmin, that they will not be allowing map upgrades to be downloaded direct to PC, only to devices. It doesn't sound very likely. Does anybody know anything about this?

    It depends on maps, some maps can be downloaded actually on gps only, for example South America City Navigator or some African city Navigators, but nobody knows if it's forever.
    CNE and CNA till now could be installed on pc.
    Mapsource is discontinued and has some issues to display new maps and to send imgs to devices, pc install actually means Basecamp install.

    Yes, I understand about Basecamp. I didn't know that about South America City Navigator. The information, which supposedly comes from Garmin, applies to Basecamp install of CN EU, as of the next update. I just wondered if anybody else had heard that.

    Pan Africa is only for Device only so Far.
    Southern Africa Topo is device only.
    If the Map was never offered as a Pre-Loaded Map or DVD or Lifetime Updates the you cannot get PC Edition.
    This is how it seems to be.
    These Maps I mention are only purchased by download.

    Am just guessing but maybe the manufacturers are getting smarter and only allowing upload to Device only so we can't forward on a COPY to anyone else

    Of itself it is not news since the Basecamp replaced the unsupported MapSource. Garmin declared what you must run Basecamp and run MapInstall under its shell. Be wait for release!

    Have only used Basecamp a couple times and didn't find any benefit over Ozi for my Old Garmin Etrax so one day will have a new device "the way it's going is going to be a few years yet" by then I should have a better idea of all this software you lot talk about. ^_^
