I have tried that with Mapsource but it was not able to access the CN maps on a uSD card in my Montana. There was no problem with Basecamp. Have you actually connected to Mapsource and have it access the CN maps on a uSD card in a gps?

I really dont want to take this off topic to far, but Im in the learning stage with Basecamp and CN. I have a Nuvi with lifetime maps. I did an update last week and the updater asked if I wanted to update the Nuvi or Nuvi and Basecamp. I chose both and now I have full CN street maps on my Mac even when the Nuvi is'nt attached. I can route, find POI's, all kinds of stuff. Am I just lucky???

CN on SD

My experience with CN was with the Garmin SD card version. So I don't know if the Lifetime maps are different or not. In working with the 2011 version of CN on DVD, I was able to copy CN to my computer and use it there without being connected to the gps.

In a previous response I indicated that I could access CN 2013 on my computer (using CN on SD) in either Basecamp or Mapsource. I just double checked and I can only access CN in Basecamp--not in Mapsource. I have been bouncing back and forth between BC amd MS trying to make to switch to BC. Sorry if I confused anyone with with my reply.

This whole CN thing is tricky. I purchased the Download version of CNNA for my Oregon, loaded it onto my SD card and when I brought up Basecamp for the first time it wiped the full version of CN I had saved on my Mac from my earlier update (see my earlier post). Not really a big deal, all I have to do is plug in the Oregon and all is well but I felt like I had a freeby there for a little while, then lost it.
Just FYI, the Oregon is supposed to be able to handle up to 4 Gb SD cards, but it runs a 32Gb just fine. That would be a lot of maps now!
