Garmin 478 HELP

My 478 came without a Mapsource DVD. I chose to download NT 2008 online and upgraded to 2010 online. Hard drive crashed and now I don't have mapsource on my computer.

I called Garmin and after 15 minutes on the phone they couldn't help me. I explained in was my understanding that many of these units did not include the mapsource DVD and that Garmin could provide a DVD for nominal cost. They said they could not do that and I would have to talk to the software department. Call waiting for the software department is 30 minutes. I'm still on hold.

The unit was registered and there is a record of all the online downloads.

Any ideas how to get Mapsource 2010 DVD?

When I bought my zumo 550 it didn't come with a Mapsource DVD either. I called Garmin's customer service, explained the situation and the gal said it was very common but would mail it right away at no cost. I got it a few days after that.

I think you should insist they send it at no cost.

Update Garmin gave me another online download but would not provide a disc. They said since I had originally opted to download online... no disc for you

How do I get Mapsource on my laptop without the DVD

Not sure you will be able to see any map detail from your downloads. I think Garmins latest BaseCamp may allow viewing your downloaded maps from the GPS.
