I have several City Navigator NT maps on my computer. The only one I need to see in nRoute is CN Australia/NZ. Do I need to convert all my CN maps or just the one I want to use with nRoute?
Just the one(s) you want to use in nRoute.
Every time I do a lifetime update, MapSource will be updated to whatever the latest version is.
Nope. Mapsource will never update automatically.
Mapsource is the program you use to manage the maps and do travel planning. It has never updated automatically.
The Lifetime Updates only update the maps.
I hope this helps dispel the confusion between Mapsource - the program - and the fact that Garmin also sticks the Mapsource name on many of their map products.
For whatever it's worth, there will no longer be any new versions of Mapsource - the program. It is officially dead. Basecamp is the program that Garmin is focusing on for the future for managing/installing maps and travel planning.
Do I need to have MapSource version 6.13.7 for nRoute to work OK or will nRoute pick up and display the converted CN Aust/NZ map regardless of the MapSource version?
Once the maps are in the right folder/file layout and the correct registry entries are in place, nRoute will find the maps just fine without Mapsource 6.13.7.
Oh - and 1 more, in making the map for nRoute, in MapReverseConverter, do I tick the "Don't use TYP file" check box?
No. At least I never do.
