MapSource_6136.exe

I'm fed up with Winduhs and want to run MapSource on my Linux box. I've learned that MapSource 6.13.6 runs in Wine on Linux. Too bad Garmin no longer has MapSource_6136.exe available to download. The file is probably about 50M. Is there a copy anywhere that I can download? If not, do you have a copy that you're willing to put on an FTP site where I can download it?

Thanks in advance.

Yep------------that's a handy Linky----------as I won't run anything newer than 6.12.4 as it's has a special thing in it's utility menu I use all the time that disappeared in later versions.

If your bike weighs more than 400lbs. You might not make it.

Hey BigDog, can you comment what that utility is? Its probably something I used to use and forgot about it. I just grabbed that version off that link, but before I go install it, I'm curious what it is?

BTW, does anyone remember in the really old versions of Mapsource, probably back around v3 or 4, there was a tracking tab and with your GPS hooked to the PC via a serial port, you could track yourself live on the computer screen using the GPS. I guess that was back before most of the GPS actually had really good maps built into them, so you used the computer screen instead. I used to use that a lot back when I had a Garmin GPS III+. It later became nRoute and was taken out of MapSource, but then eventually was discontinued all together.

Hey BlueLghtning---------in the Utilities pull down menu of version 6.12.4 there is a selection called "Unlock Maps" that was and still is handy for me. I think it disappeared after newer versions.

Yes-----------I use to do the same thing with the old (really old) gps's from garmin and hooked them to a laptop in the truck. Seemed really neat at the time---but I guess not to much use now. I had forgotten all about that till you mentioned it.
