    Default Previous Garmin MapSource not found error fix

    Download Garmin MapSource for Free and Install Without Media


    Garmin GPS receivers come packaged with free MapSource application. MapSource is required for Garmin users to upload and download maps data, POI (Points of Interest), waypoints, tracks, and routes to and from GPS unit. In other words, those without GPS unit or map product such as Topo, City Navigator and MetroGuide will not have MapSource CD or DVD installer. If you for some reason need to install MapSource on your computer, there is a workaround trick to get MapSource for free.

    Garmin officially provides a MapSource version update download, which will only work if there is previous version of MapSource installed. If no MapSource software is detected, the MapSource update setup will abort with error message saying that it cannot find previous version of MapSource. Follow the following trick to hack the setup file so that it can be used to install MapSource clean and fresh without any prior installation of MapSource.

    Download MapSource software updater from Garmin.
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    The version as of December 4, 2007 is 6.13.6, and the trick also works on Map Source version 6.13.5.
    Unpack or extract the content of MapSource_6136.exe
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    downloaded using WinRAR.
    From the extracted files, run MAIN.msi.
    Then, run Setup.exe.
    Note: The sequence to execute Main.msi and then Setup.exe is important to avoid “Previous MapSource not found!” error.

    Garmin MapSource now installed.
    The trick is useful is you have lost or forgotten the MapSource installation disc and wants to upload and download maps and other data to Garmin GPS receivers, or for GPS addicts who needs Map Source to open files in gdb, mps, gpx and loc formats, create waypoints, routes and tracks; view maps especially free maps; save point, route or track data in gdb, mps, gpx, tab-delimited text and DXF formats; and export waypoint, route and track data directly to Google Earth.

    However, if you have any Garmin maps, installing the maps will also install the original and genuine copy of MapSource

    Thanks catymag, but I do have a genuine Mapsource CD (City Navigator Europe v6 and v7).
    I have downloaded City Navigator Brazil maps, but cannot get them onto my computer. They show up as files, but the maps cannot be seen. I get a message to send an email to Garmin.

    Catymag, I'm trying to get maps onto a Garmin data card (not a phone). The only way I know is by using Mapsource software and Mapsource maps. Do you know any alternatives?

    try nominating one of the two file GMAPSUPP.IMG in GMAPSUP2.IMG or your unit will see just one of the two files, import directly in your unit

    never bother me bro!

    sorry for bothering.

    I just recently installed the gmxt on my mobile aim (great tutorial) and just tried to install the mapsource. I download the newest version, extracted it and ran the main. Afterwards, i ran the setup and launched the program. it says that i don't have previous map products installed so it aborted it. I'm really new at this so any help would be great.

    I wonder if i'm doing it right, after i install the app on my e71, i just use mapsource to create maps and then where do i put it into?

    Thanks so much.
