Thanks for any suggestions or advice.
You get a free CNNT2010 download from Garmin with the purchase of your new 478. Register your gps with them, and IIRC, you should get an e-mail with a link to download your new map. Then follow the directions for install on your 478 and PC and you should be good to go.

There may be something I'm missing about your map download, but that's what I can recall from memory.

Good Luck
