I had the Mapsource World Maps on the OLD GPS III+. Can that be loaded in a Nuvi?
I don't believe the Mapsource maps will work. Nuvi maps have to be in a compressed format like the Navigator NT that is pre installed. It has to be an NT version maps.
Not sure about the World Maps however I did load my old TOPO Maps onto the 660. They worked great. Give it a try if you still have the software.
How do you do it?
You will need a copy of Mapsource, update your version of Mapsource to the latest from garmin. connect the 660 to the computer using the included cable. Select the world map as a map set to send to the unit and click on the send to unit button. That is how I sent the Topo Maps to my unit and they worked very well during my trip this weekend.
I just received the Mapsource CD from Garmin. Thanks for the responses so far.
Sorry 'bout the questions:
1 How do you remove the maps if you no longer want to use them?
2 How do they appear on the unit? As a map separate from the City Nav?
3 If you use Topo maps will there be a conflict in using both City Nav and Topo maps?
4 Can you install the maps to the card instead of main memory?
I just called today about getting a copy of Mapsource for my nuvi 660 they said it doesn't come with one and I dont need one. I also sent a text message to tech support because I have read that some people are getting them. Did the Mapsource come with your nuvi 660 or did you have to send for it?
Here is the link I used. I received the disk today.
No Nuvi comes with the Mapsource disk.
I was able to load World Maps onto the Nuvi. You just cannot navigate on the roads. It is still helpful.
