It appears that Garmin has re-thought their approach on the value of Map products and are now looking to hold on to Cartography a bit more tightly.

At the other end of the spectrum is Nokia (NAVTEQ). Nokia has made all of the NAVTEQ maps free for their compatible handset customers. Now there is a value statement for you.

Slightly off topic, but of interest and maybe a solution for a few of the problems the latest MapSource has created. MapSource Reverse Converter I just used it on a CNNTNA 2010.4 map and it worked as advertised. I'm now using the new maps in 6.13.7. There's also a link to a 6.13.7 source.

some riders in Me. are liking their delorme PN30/40s about the same size as a 60csx and they didn't have to buy 2 products to get topo lines along with the roads...

That looks pretty cool and is probably worthy of its own thread! I know lots of people have been hanging onto their 6.3.17 MapSource. This gives those with the NuMaps update a solution too.

Should I update to 6.15.7?

I'm currently running Mapsource 6.15.6. Should I bother updating to 6.15.7? I don't want to inadvertently screw up my maps.

MapSource v6.15.7 should not cause you any problems.
