Can someone describe or post a Markwell on how to make the Garmin Mapsource look on the Hard drive for stored maps vs. checking the CD in the CD Rom drive?

I want to copy the maps to my HD and not have to switch disks or always have to have it in.

Any help is much appreciated.

Wish I could help but.....

I have Mapsource Topo maps, Road & Recreation, Metro Maps and World Map and depending on what I am loading I always just switch CD's. I know that for Metro and Topo East - I never have to have the CD in , so I must have loaded it onto the hard drive at installation is what I assume.

I have found that the ones I like best are the Metro and Topo. You can do without Roads & Rec and World Map (which is not much different from the basemap anyway).

.....I scratch my head at the thought of having to put my CD in the drive at all.....

During the installation process (if memory serves me). It asks what maps you want loaded and I believe you have to check every map that you wish to load onto the hard drive.

Hope it helps. Mark

Unfortunately, with the one I have, the directions talk about a typical install
and a full install, but there is only a typical install on the installation itself. The typical installation runs from the CD.

Thanks everyone for replying, and Cachew, I think that is what I was looking for. I'll try it out tonight.

I copied the entire CD onto a folder on the hard disk (doesn't really matter which one)then just ran the installation program from that folder. It works great (and it's easy).

That's way too easy... Why didn't I think of that?? Image LOL Oh well.

Cachew's Markwell works perfectly as well! Thanks!
