Default MAPSOURCE QUESTION

DO I NEED A BLUE CHART PROGRAM TO RUN THE MAPSOURCE OR CAN I JUST BUY THE TRIP AND WAYPOINT MANAGER TO TRANSFER DATA BETWEEN MY PC AND MY 5212?

THANKS FOR ANY HELP.

You are going to need both programs (bluechart and trip/waypoint manager)

You can use Trip and Waypoint, but you wont have any detailed data which is ok for just entering waypoints, transfering them to your unit, and backing up data.BlueChart will do the same as Trip and Wapoint but with detailed chart data. You dont need both, its either one or the other.

I just loaded the laest version of Map Source BlueChart Americas on my laptop.

It has a release date of January 2008.

You cannot display G2 Vision Charts on Map Source.

You want the one for the region you plan on running in. If you go to the Garmin site, there is a link that gives you a listing of the regions.

And Tron was right. You can use either Trip and Waypoint manager of Mapsource (Bluecharts). IMHO Mapsource is much better. Costs more too.
