MapSource Tutorial Document

Hi there,

My first post here (I'm secretly a GS owner but no-one has to know )

I've been working selling some GPS recently and one of the things that seems to be lacking is a decent MapSource Tutorial document for Garmin GPS units. So, I'm not sure if you'vr already got one on this forum but here's a link to one that I wrote last week if you're looking for something like this:

http://www.bestbikingroads.com/usefu..._Tutorial1.pdf

Feedback welcome,

David

Thanks David. I will take a closer look at it later today. I always seem to have problems making routes. It seems that I have to zoom way in and click many waypoints in order for the route to not side track.

Thanks David. Nice write-up for the beginner to get started with. I'm sure that was your intent and it's very well structured for that audience.
I've always had a problem with seeing my routes because of the waypoint data covering it. Is there a way to remove the waypoint text on the map to expose the route?

Thanks, Jer
