    Psst! Maggy! I think i can get him to swap his 276c for a mod appointment. He's lusting after a burnished copper GLOBAL MOD badge. I reckon he'll settle for a slime-green MODERATOR sticker. See if yours will peel off easily.... Waddya mean ya don't wanna? We'll see how livable your burrow is after we dynamite your hole you insolent little hobbit! Everybody grab him while i stick this dynamite in his hole ... no not that way, turn him upside down, it'll be easier. Yay! Got his sticker! The skin and fur should come of with a bit of metho i think .....

    Hey Killbot! I got a proposition for ya! A moderator position has opened up quite unexpectedly and serendipitously. Amazing how the stars align sometimes isn't it? Waddya think, do y'want it? Give me your 276c and two grand [US not AU] and we'll pretend you actually know something about GPSs and PCs. If you refuse i'll stitch Maggy's sticker back on him and let him help you flash it ...[That last bit will seal the deal for sure, if he can't understand me properly then Maggy's instruction will be like Swahili to him]... You don't speak Swahili do you Kotkase?

    What if I gave u my gps and 2 grand (us) and then the queen comes along and sez, "You can't appoint no rough tough yank to be a moderator on a sweet an sophisticated australian gps joint like dis here joint here. That boy scare all the nice peepils away. You dun exceeded yo authority. Do dat **** again an yo ass gun get busted down from global muderator to streetcorner night watch muderator!"? Then where will I be. I'll be out 2 grand US plus my beloved and valuable 276C and back where I started. What about your plan to throw dynamite down the hobbbit's hobbit hole and then peel the badge off his dead body and then give it to me? What's wrong with that plan?

    Okay, Plan Z it is then. Maggy take the con. I'm going on shore leave for some well earned R & R. See what your hobbit brain can make of this poor half-witted [half-NY/half-AZ] fella's GPSMAP276C would you, there's a good little chap. Seems Kilroy's slipped seamlessly into another personality, just humour him and call him Melvin or Kowzno from hereon.
    BTW MK, for insubordination you've been demoted to temporary acting blank file [non-substantive]. We figured it'd make no difference to behead you as you don't seem to use it anyway.

    Sit down before I tell you the following. Don't read any more until you sit down. OK, are you comfortably seated? I don't want you to faint and fall down and hurt yourself.

    I DID IT!!! I've got 2016.1 on my GPS!!! Amazing! Bless you, my boy. I take back some of the bad things I said about you, like when I said that I hope the queen has your head cut off asap. Sorry about that. It wasn't very kind of me and I deeply regret saying it now.



    Next thing I tried to do was move the maps from my GPS to Mapsource on my computer. I always did the reverse before, downloading the maps to my computer and then moving the maps I wanted, that would fit, to my GPS. But now I get a popup window saying, "Some maps could not be opened because the following MapSource products are not installed: City Navigator North America NT 2016.1"

    Here are the directions that I followed to achieve my amazingly triumph:




    We know from your screenshots that as well as having test folder in umpteen other places you definitely have it inside another folder named test inside Garmin root folder, i.e. C:\Garmin\test\test. Inside that 2nd test folder you have the files gmapsupp.img and Install_gmapsupp.bat, also confirmed by the screenshots. Therefore, if you change the text in the bat file to read "C:\Garmin\WebUpdater\WebUpdater.exe /upload_file rgn=10 path=C:\Garmin\test\test\gmapsupp.img -autorun usb /i" [without the quotes] it will invoke WebUpdater to flash the map provided the path isn't too long. Now that should be easy for you to do hey? ..... Ah crap! Who am i kidding? You'll find a way to cock it up on purpose so you can blame me won't you?

    Sniff! Sob! Snorffle! My li'l boy's all growed up. He flashed it all by his li'l own self without much help from me or the hobbit. Well done Melvin [of course i know who Melvin Kowznowsky is! Waddya think i am, a complete ignoramus? I'm quite incomplete actually].

    That dipstick gene is prominent in your family hey? BaseCamp can see images on cards or devices. You can't see an image in MapSource, only a PC Install versio..... AH FECKIT! Here we go again. Ask Maggy Melvin, he'll explain it to you.

    Maggy, fercrissake tell him how to install a gmap folder into his PC, THAT'S what i wanted him to do in the first place so he could send a shortcut map to his 276C using MapInstall ..... mumble, rhubarb, mutter. FLlCKIN' YANKS musta won WW2 by sheer force of numbers not brain-power.

    PS: Didn't feint, only got severe chest pain and am very short of breath. Saddling up PC for a trip to the emergency dept .... puff, pant ..... ARRGGGH! sigh ... rattle ... cough ... snort... rattle ....sighhhh ........

    Gee, I hope daddy's OK. I'd pop over to give him a hand and help prop him back up on to his chair in case he fell off, but he's on the other side of the planet.

    "BaseCamp can see images on cards or devices. You can't see an image in MapSource, only a PC Install versio..... AH FECKIT! Here we go again. Ask Maggy Melvin, he'll explain it to you."

    Who's Maggie Melvin?



    Melvin


    PS Ever since my early Mad days that name cracks me up.

    "BaseCamp can see images on cards or devices."


    I think Foo is saying that I can get the new maps onto Basecamp, which I have on my computer but never use. I've only used MapSource. But right now I am using my giant brain to try to see if I can import the new 2016 map from my 276 to Basecamp, so far with the usual success rate of zero. As for Maggie the hobbit helping me, so far he hasn't talked to me. I don't think he speaks English. In fact the only person here who has talked to me is you. Perhaps if I bathed more frequently more people would talk to me.
