MapSource Tutorial

Hi there,

Not posted anything for a while here but I have recently finished writing a MapSource Tutorial Document for those new to MapSource or having trouble with it.

Take a look and see if you're interested:

Feedback welcome.

Re: MapSource Tutorial

i've long thought it funny/strange that Garmin and Magellan both use a software package called "MapSource." I've never used a Garmin, but it's a lot more popular than my old Magellan and the Mapsource software that came with my Magellan eXplorist SUCKS. I am routinely disappointed by topics like this that tease me into thinking that someone has finally found a way to properly use the Magellan Mapsource program.

I'm sure many Garmin folks will find it very helpful, though.
