Routes in/through BC

When trying to create a route to AK from US my MapSource V5 program does not compute. Thinks I traded my LT for an airplane and just draws a straight line to the final destination.

Works fine inside of AK and in the rest of the US. It just will not route on roads through BC. Is there something I forgot to unlock?

Thumbs up

I contacted Garmin after trying everything I could think of. The Garmin/Mapsource Tech I spoke with said Version 5.0.1 of Mapsource did not have the maps for the Yukon Territory so there was no way the program could calculate a route via roads. Therefore, it just computed a direct line from A to B.

The maps are present in the 7.0 release. Garmin is a great company to deal with. I explained I will be traveling through the missing maps area next month and since I bought a map program (V 5.0) that states it contains maps for all of North America I thought it only fair to expect the maps from California to Alaska to be present. I politely asked if they would either send me the maps in a compatable format for my software or upgrade me.

7.0 upgrade is on the way at no charge. They said 8.0 will be out very soon and will be a $75 upgrade. No details as to what changes will be in 8.0.
