    What is MapSource? Description of it and it's configuration.


  4. Transfering and loading maps

    As long you stay within the region of the loaded maps you only have to do this once. If you go to a new region, remember to load the according maps.


  5. Transfering and loading routes, tracks and waypoints to the GPS

    Before you use your GPS becomes really useful you need to load Waypoints and/or Routes and/or Tracks. For Brevets we provide the file to load with all needed 'Waypoints', 'Routes' and 'Tracks'.
