    I am getting a new laptop soon and want to upload my mapsource software. Is there a limit to the number of times it can be loaded on to a computer before the unlock codes will not work? I purchased all the software new.

    Thanks, Dennis

    Unlock codes are based on number of GPS units (2) by serial number, not computers.

    When you say 2, does that mean you can use 2 GPS units on one unlock?

    Nope, it means you can get two unlock codes, one for each GPS with the normal software, like city nav. I think you might be limited to only one unlock for the NT version, but I haven't gotten an answer on that yet, but I do intend to test the waters.
