But when I opened my device and went through each folder, I couldn't find its gmapsupp.img so I could overwrite it. Is there any thing else I need to look into? Thanks very much.
    sir, just copy gmapsupp.img to F:\garmin (susbtitute F: with your garmin's usb drive assignment).

    what OS are you using?

    ^ or you can try "F:\Map" on a nuvi 1300

    btw ... a new 1300 will not have a file gmapsupp.img on it ... the first time Mapsource is used to install a map, it will create the directory called "Map" on the unit and wites the gmapsupp.img file on it

    *desertfox615 and kinyo;

    Thanks for the tip. I copied the gmapsupp.img file into my device but still can't get a satellite reading. Pls bear w/ me as I ask this: do I also have to copy the mapsource file into my Nuvi? I downloaded and ran it and it's now in the PC. But when I try to access it through All Programs > OSM-PH Garmin maps > a drop down menu of "Uninstall" (with a crossed out icon) and "Website" appears. Is this the end result of the installation?

    Btw, kinyo my OS is XP.

    Thanks again.

    *JackFlash ... i think you only installed the OSM map for Mapsource ... not Mapsource itself ... to run Mapsource, you should be clicking on Start->Programs->Garmin->Mapsource

    if indeed you already installed Mapsource and as you say running, what version is it?

    Mapsource works on XP or Win7. It is installed only on the PC, not on the nuvi.

    Bro.liv,- I did, but I guess it was never corrected. Even PM'ed the admin.

    There must be an anointed way to do it, though....

    How does one get the updates on OSM maps? I've downloaded a map already but wondering if there are updates. Some of the streets and directions in the one I downloaded are no longer correct. Been searching through the OSM site but can't find any links on uploads. Thanks.
