Bylot, April 2, 2009 Just install mapsend topo canada under Vista. It
won't load but dont care to much. Install Mapsend
lite v2 free. The v2 version can load any other
mapsend map already installed. You get a single
interface for all your mapsend maps whenever topo,
topo 3D or other kind. On topo map, mapsend lite
offer 3D view and profile. Not much is missing
from the original mapsend topo Canada software.
Brunodog, April 2, 2009 Try the Program Compatibility Wizard in Vista.
First, completely uninstall all Mapsend
products. Reboot. Then go to
faqid=470&prodid=1223 and following the
instructions. Don't worry about the way you
screen looks during the process. It should work -
it did on my Toshiba laptop and eXplorist 500. If
not just reverse the steps and kick yourself for
not reading teh box.
Ray, August 27, 2008 Some things are great - others not so much. I have a Sportrak Pro, and
run Mapsend Topo on a XP with SP3. No problem getting everything I
want out of the system. Having to load the CD is a pain in the butt,
as it runs slow, but it does get the job done. However, when I tried
to load the program into my Vista laptop - no luck.The install won't
load some drivers. I see from the other posts I am not alone here. I
use Magellan's Canada S&D program for streets and built-up areas. That
program loaded into Vista OK. I do a lot of sea-kayak guiding and the
Sportrak takes a bit of a beating and dunking. My problem with
customer support was dealing with some water leakage in what is
suppose to be a waterproof unit (it's not). I contacted Magellan by email,
and it took about two weeks for them to get back to me. The best Magellan
could do was to offer a discount on a newer unit. So - seeing as the
warranty was gone anyway, I opened the GPS, found the damage, fixed
it, sealed and closed the unit, and off I go. It's been working fine
for months now. I guess my biggest complaint is how quickly Magellan
drops suppport on their less-than-brand-new units.
Curt, August 14, 2008 I rated it a 4 because when it works, it works pretty well.
Unfortunately, like the rest of you, I bought a new Dell with XP-pro
loaded. The only way I can get MapSend to install and run is with a
clean boot. And, once it's installed, you can get it to run (most of
the time), by putting it in your 'Start Up'... that way it 'runs' at
start-up (duh)before all the USB ports?? fire up and kill it. But
then just try to turn it off and back on sorry: "This program is
already running" ....try the three-fingered salute "Ctl-Alt-
Delete"..and kill it yourself.. just my 2¢, Like I said, I use it All
the Time great bunch of maps...
