No maps shown after transfering maps to Garmin Mobile PC

Hi, I have a problem. I installed the maps via MapSource and I unlocked them, but I when I open Garmin Mobile PC doesn't show any maps, even if i go tools > manage my data > mapset it says no removable maps found?

Please help
Thanks.

What maps did you install in Mobile PC?

What device did you unlock the maps to? Eg. is it a GPS20x or GPS10x that came with Mobile PC or is it something else?

If you look in the folder that contains Mobile PC you should see a file named GMAPSUPP.IMG. If it's not there, the maps you installed were not installed in the right place.

Mobile PC is usually installed in C:\Program Files\Garmin\GarminMobilePC. The map files you should see in that folder are:

GMAPBMAP.IMG -- the world basemap that came preinstalled in Mobile PC.
GMAPPROM.IMG -- the detail maps that came preinstalled in Mobile PC.
GMAPSUPP.IMG -- the maps you installed, if they were installed correctly.

Update your copy of MapSource to the latest version and you won't have that problem.
