Being very new to all this please excuse if this is a daft question and I am missing something really obvious.
I have downloaded Navigator V9 and Contours V2 to my 60CSx and everything works absolutely splendidly.
However in Mapsource I would like to view Contours overlaid on the Navigator map the same as I can see in the 60CSx but I am unsure how to do this.
Any help would be appreciated

Neil

You would think that if the GPS unit could do it then Mapsource would be able to!!

You would indeed think that (and so would I), but it doesn't.

This is probably because Garmin regard Mapsource as nothing more than a tool which enables comms with their units.

They've never really treated it as a useful piece of software in its own right - even though it is - and that's why so many potentially "useful" facilities have never been implemented.
