I just downloaded the Basecamp software, and the MFM map looks so much better than in Mapsource.

You guys should have a go
Contribute exclusively to MFM. MSM don't get it !

I have both Mapsource and Basecamp installed in my machine, and when I installed a Mapsource product, the mapset will appear in both Mapsource and Basecamp.

And in addition to that, if a Garmin device or data card is connected to PC, all installed IMG's will be loaded into Basecamp as well.

Maybe TS was comparing to the older version of Mapsource.

My Basecamp is on MacOS, no MapSource for Mac. Any chance of having MFM installer for Mac?

I can help you generate MFM map in GMAPI format (archived in TGZ). Thereafter you can use (MapInstall &) MapManager to install the converted map.

You can view instructions on migrating Garmin map products from Windows to the Mac here.
