garmin.jpgSome time ago I wrote about how to download Garmin Mapsource, just in case you screwed up your Garmin device and you needed to install this important piece of software in the GPS unit again. Since I feel to have written the whole procedure a little too hastily, today I still want to speak about it, but I want to write the whole procedure in detail. Here is what you have to do:

  1. Download Garmin Mapsource installer from: MapSource_6137.exe
  2. Download and install Winrar here.
  3. Run WinRAR, and open “MapSource_6137.exe” (select “All files” at “Files of type”, to view other than normally supported extensions).
  4. Click “Extract to” on the Winrar window and put the whole content into a folder located on your desktop preferably.
  5. Browse and point to the downloaded “MapSource_6137.exe”, right-click and select “Open with WinRAR” (this will open “MapSource_6137.exe” in WinRAR as above).
  6. Click “Extract to” on the Winrar window and put the whole content into a folder located on your desktop preferably.
  7. Browse the folder that contains the extracted files and folders, and continue with the above instructions with “MAIN.msi” and “Setup.exe”.

If, after the whole procedure, your get an error like this: “There is a problem with the MapSource installation. Please re-install MapSource and start it again” you have to fully uninstall MapSource, as well as delete any remnant of Mapsource registry entry. Then only re-install MapSource using the method in the first post. If you don’t know how to delete the registry entry, follow these simple steps:

  • Click The Start Icon on your desktop
  • Type Regedit on Run…
  • Find this key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE –> SOFTWARE –> Garmin
  • Delete the whole Garmin folder
