It kinda depends on what you want to accomplish using your GPS. Traveling cities, off-roading, work or play.

That's just an information message. It's telling you that there is no autorouting data in the maps so you can't do routes with it. Metroguide has never had the ability to do routing (except Metroguide Canada).

Thanks Ken there are so many programs. I got the wrong thing, I use my Mapsource Topo and It works in nRoute for off-roading in Colorado but I need a program like Metroguide for navigating streets with turn by turn and food stops.
I can't spend $120 for more software. What could I get that may be a little older, or used, to switch between like on nRoute, to do my topo and city navigating. It would be nice if some one did it all and it was simple.

Too bad you don't live in Canada. Topo Canada does it all. It has all the topo stuff. Plus it has all the same road routing data and search features (addresses, streets, intersections, cities, POIs, etc) that the Metroguide Canada road maps have. A real all-in-wonder.

You could check out the free maps at GPS File Depot or na1400.info and see if they have something that would work for you. Might be a bit of a learning curve, but then, nothing's ever really free.
