Anybody get the Mapsource DVD for the Mac...yet?

 

Hi Mac users,

Garmin has released the Mapsource DVD for the Mac. Does anybody have it yet? If so, what are your impressions?

Thanks for your time.

Mac Map, csv 2 gpx , and Bobcat Beta

I've had the Mac Map for 4 days and am slowly figuring out how to use it.

If you want to load a .csv file on the map it will need to be converted to a .gpx file and the "Mac Garmin Tools" converter has been working for me.

There's a feature to "create new folder" on the map. I tried the drag and drop method to move items into the new folder but after many attempts and a good nights rest found that copy and paste works.

Be sure to get the latest version of Bobcat. ( I am using the 2.0.0.2 Beta version )

I was told by Garmin 2 years ago when I got my Street Pilot I would be able to get the NT version replaced by the Mac version when it came out.

I'm hope they live up to their word.

Please keep us posted on how you make out on this request.

Thanks, Mike

Thanks for the help

Thanks for all the help in the listings

No I haven't got it yet, but

No I haven't got it yet, but you certainly make duplicate with the help of

    DVD CD Duplicator

. Is that correct?

RE: Can't Find it

I just checked out the link. It appears to be a link to the maps, which do in fact work on the Mac. I don't know about Mac Map. I'll have to research that some more. I have been using Road Trip. It works okay. That's available for download in the Mac section of the Garmin website. Still have to load maps onto it, though.
