    Does anyone know if a map that works on Garmin Mobile XT will also work with Garmin Mobile PC?

    I tried this because I have one of the Garmin GPS in my car and I really wanted the same software on my computer. Unfortunately all these maps and stuff are confusing as hell for me!

    I installed the software but no maps and was informed to get them online and unlock them with a code they gave me... now I have no idea how to get maps or load them on?

    So confused haha I gave up basically.
    Mine starts quickly though if thats any help, it just doesnt have any friggin maps!

    How do you acutally get the map into the Garmin Mobile PC program though?

    What happens right now is that it opens up with no maps and I'm simply an arrow in the middle of a blank screen. I installed that map and it mentioned MapSource? Im guessing I need Garmin Mapsource to acutally install the maps into Garmin products?
