Montana/mac Software porblem - Help!
I have tried searching for a solution to my problem but can't find anything so would appreciate some help or a pointer in the right direction.
My Mac is an iMac (Intel), running 10.5.8.
My mapping software is City Navigator Europe NT 2012.3
I have previously been able to load these maps to my Montana 600 and everything has worked as it should.
Today when I switched the Montana on I didn't have any of my maps, just the base map (this may be as a result of me doing something wrong previously but it is some time since I used it and I really can't remember). I have checked that it's not just that the maps are switched off but they are not listed, just the base map. I even tried switching profiles to see if they showed up but they are not there.
I then connected the Montana to the iMac in order to go to Garmin.com to check my maps. I got a message from Garmin telling me that I needed to update my Communicator Plug In. I downloaded the update, double clicked on it as instructed and got this message
I have tried this three or more times and still get the same message every time. I even did a full computer re-start but still get the same. I also tried it with and without the Montana connected to the iMac.
Being unable to check on my maps through Garmin.com I opened BaseCamp and confirmed that the maps are there
So I open MapInstall and get this message
Click "Install now" and then get this
So, now I see a pattern developing, the "No default application specified" pattern.
I then tried MapInstall again but this time told it to do the upgrade later and when ahead and told it to load the maps to the Montana. I left it doing its thing and then it just stops with this
I can leave it like this for as long as you like and nothing further happens and I have to cancel in the end.
As a last resort I tried to re-install the maps onto the iMac from the DVD but couldn't do that either as I again got the "No default application specified" message.
So, I suppose that the main question is what is the default application and where can I get it and, come to that why haven't I got it!?
Any help would be most appreciated, thanks.
That's a Mac issue, not a Garmin issue. Usually it is just an association issue. So you need to re-associate the .pkg files with the installer. Here is something I pulled off a google searh:
First right click on the .pkg & select the get info. New window will appear, select the open with, Is there Installer app from the list to chose from?
Hope that helps.
Thanks for the advice - I didn't realize that it was a Mac problem. The /System/Library/CoreServices/Installer.app worked perfectly for installing the Communicator plugin and Map update, I am now in the process of re-installing my maps and will report back on the result.
Thanks again :thumb
