Mapsource map for Iceland

If you need a free map of Island for your Garmin GPS, here is one!
http://www.ourfootprints.de/gps/mapsource-island_e.html

You can't auto navigate, but I didn't need that when I was in Iceland this summer. The map is very good and accurate.





And be sure to email recorded tracks and positions of campsites ect to the creator of this map, to keep the map up-to-date.

Question

I have tried to load the map without success, think followed instructions OK, but the registry bit is beyond my expertise - could anyone that has sorted using the map offer any advice? It's on my PC in a seperate Iceland Directory, but I can 'see' it in Mapsource. (I am on the latest version of Mapsource by the way) Off to Iceland in Aug so could be helpful though I'm a map man really. Thanks in advance if anyone can advice. Cheers Fritz.

If you don't want to mess with registry files then you need to download .exe type of installation, not .zip file. Run it and it will install the maps and also registers them in MapSource. Close MapSource before starting the installation.

Thumbs up Oops

As expected all my fault :-0
I had downloaded the zip and not the exe.
Having done as per instructions it's all there...and bloody excellent I may add. Not sure what all the way p[oints represent, but can have fun guessing!
Excellent resource, hope we can capture some new information to add to it.
I was going to edit my post, but Rebaseonu you answered too quickly ;-) Many thanks, fritz
