    Garmin MapInstall (Mac) v.2.1.5 was released 24 Feb. 2010 to correct a problem in MapInstall v.2.1.3 that caused previously unlocked maps to lock. Has anyone succeeded in unlocking, selecting map portions and uploading BiCiMapas Mexico GPS Atlas 2008 v.3.2 or later to their Garmin GPS, after updating to this latest version of MapInstall?

    System Requirements
    Windows Platform PC
    Mapsource is required to activate and load the map into the GPS receover. It shall be installed and updated to the latest version
    NOTE: This map is not compatible with the Mac platform. A Windows PC is required




    I'm patiently waiting for the use of a friends PC to get the maps onto my Garmin, but will be watching to see if anyone found a workaround here....

    ChiTown,
    Thanks for the reply. I loaded the legacy Mapinstall 2.1.1 and it works fine. I gave up some nice features, but my maps are no longer locked.
