    Probably a rather stupid question: I have a Mexico City Navigator on Micro-sd card for my 76csx. How do I get it to Mapsource on my PC for routing/trip planning? Can't figure it out.

    you can't. not back into mapsource atleast where you create routes and such.
    i believe with basecamp http://www.garmin.com/en-US/shop/downloads/basecamp you can read the cards maps right of the disc and create routes.

    next time buy the dvd with the maps not the preloaded sd card.

    As noted, you can't load the SC card to Mapsource.

    You can install it in the unite and then use Basecamp to view the data.

    Just a warning - with a 76CSx as the unit the sd card/map's installed in, it'll take a long time for Basecamp to read the info from the map. The 76/60 series has a very slow USB connection.

    And for this to work, the unit needs to be in mass storage mode.

    But aside from those caveats, it should still work.
