MI and MS don't use the same algorithms to compile the IMG files and although there are no problems with MS using older PC installed mapping data it's best to use only MI for all image compilations. You can continue to use MS to do other functions on your PC but you may find things that you both like and dislike compared to using BC.
    I have read that before but have not 'noticed' this phenomenon. The problem that I have with MI is that once you build the mapset, you have no information as to what map segments are included, and selecting the segments is awkward, to put it nicely.

    Would you play also Russian Roulette? Ok, the possible consequences are not so devastating but you surely don't want your Garmin to have a hissy fit when you least expect it [it will eventually].

    I agree, it's clunky. Not to mention the stupid auto naming. Swings and roundabouts. Garmin giveth and Garmin taketh away .......
