MapSource is Garmin's mapping software. It provides geographic data that can be viewed on your PC and added to the basemap of your compatible Garmin GPS device. With MapSource, you can:

  • Transfer saved waypoints, routes, and tracks from your GPS device and save them to your PC
  • Create, view, and edit waypoints, routes, and tracks
  • Find items, addresses, and Points of Interest (POI) included in the map data
  • Transfer map data, waypoints, routes, and tracks to your GPS device

Garmin provides an Error Report Form on their website to submit errors in their maps to their cartography department.

Additional maps can be purchase and installed into the MapSource application. MapSource products for Australia include City Navigator, MetroGuide and WorldMap.

Third-party MapSource developers produce map data for other countries that is compatible with the MapSource application. This allows transfer of map data (streets, locations, POI) to compatible Garmin devices.

There are a number of Open Mapping Projects creating free maps for MapSource.
