Re: Garmin mapsource update v6153 available

Dang, I was just getting good at working around some of those bugs! Now I'm going to have to learn it all over again.

Seriously were some badly needed fixes that are part of this update. The routing tools work like they are supposed to now.

Re: Garmin mapsource update v6153 available

OK, then, try to make a route where the end is the same point as where it starts (or with a loop where one point is in the same route twice). Then recalculate ....




I think I'll stick to 6.13.7 for a while.

Re: Garmin mapsource update v6153 available

Your not supposed to do that. It hasn't been best practice with garmin to have the start and end position be the same for a long time now. My quest would even get confused if I did that.

So, if it is a bug you're not supposed to do that? IMO a program should not crash under these circumstances. If I'm not supposed to do so, I should get a warning.

Re: Garmin mapsource update v6153 available

I'm just saying it has existed in one form or another and the work around is easy either two routes or end your route different from your start. You are not the first to notice it. I learned if from a friend of mine two years ago. Do whatever works for you.

Re: Garmin mapsource update v6153 available

Yep its a bug. Found on another user group.

"I use Mapsource for motorcycling roundtrips in which START/FINISH is one
and the same waypoint. In cases like this, Mapcourse mercilessly crashes
when you try to recalculate your route."

That's odd... I do this all the time on both my desktop and laptop computers and it works just fine.

I just tried it with 6.15.3 and it did crash. It did not do that with 6.15.1.

Re: Garmin mapsource update v6153 available

This looks like a new bug. Two steps forward and one step back.

Yep, the new version does not want to do loops... Dang it! I wonder if you can go back?

Re: Garmin mapsource update v6153 available

You can download version 6.13.7 here:
http://www.gpsinformation.org/perry/...ource_6137.exe

Simply install it TWICE over the current version. The first time you'll probably get an error message.

Re: Garmin mapsource update v6153 available

I downloaded the new code and I think it is much more robust in redrawing and the icon size makes using the code much more friendly. I think it is more usable as I was using 6.14.1 and I don't like removing and adding same software so I stayed with it after I installed.

I think it is now better than previous editions. YMMV..

Re: Garmin mapsource update v6153 available

I agree, the new version has a lot of good improvements. I discovered that I can create a loop with the route tool just fine (instead of using waypoints). However, if I try to recalculate it that's when the program blows up.
