    Yes OR No

    Yes OR No.

    Yes answer:
    If these third party maps CAN BE loaded into the Garmin Mapsource program and then transfered FROM the Garmin Mapsource Windows program to the GPS you are all set. Of course you will have no routing ability with the Mapsource will only show where you are.

    No answer (most likely this is the answer)
    If these third party maps CAN NOT be transfered to the Garmin Mapsource Windows software (as in they use their own software to transfer the maps), you will not be able to display it on a PC.

    So do you know if this 3rd party software sends the maps to the Garmin GPS or does it actually INSTALL into the Garmin Mapsource Windows software?
