Garmin Training Center and mapping software

Postby Nicola » Thu Jul 12, 2007 2:10 pm

I recently bought a Garmin Edge 205. After my first ride, I downloaded the info from the Edge to my Training Center program. It showed my track, but no street references. The Help page said something about unlocking MapSource. I called Garmin to find out how to do this, I was informed that I would have to buy the MapSource for about $130. I called back to find out if Traing Center is compatible with DeLorme Street Atlas. The person on the other end of the line seemed at a complete loss and gave me this website. Nice customer support, eh? So the question is - will the Training Center use third party mapping software or am I going to have to buy MapSource? In either case, how do you get the mapping software into Training Center?

I don't imagine Training Center will work with any other maps. If you install MapSource on the same computer with Training Center they will both find the maps. There are a couple of third party options for seeing your track on maps.
