Hi,

I have logged the first track Jalan Dua, 2 more to go before I started to post in the feedback post. But can someone advice me how to paste a jpg file on my post to explain further e.g. no right turn, one way, u-turn etc... this part of the right is quite complicated after LTA completed the underground circle line.



Please help.

Open your track using mapsource.Then "printscreen" mapsource. Paste into microsoft paint and edit. Save as jpeg. then upload the jpeg file.

Maybe you can try this RoadTrip for Mac software version 2.0.2
Notes:
  • RoadTrip allows you to transfer waypoints, tracks, and routes between your Mac and Garmin device and manage your data using your Garmin maps.
  • RoadTrip provides the ability to search for points of interest from the convenience of your Mac and then send the locations to your Garmin GPS.
  • The included utility MapManager copies maps and unlock codes into the right place to be accessible by RoadTrip and MapInstall. To migrate the maps from your Windows PC, download MapConverter onto your PC and follow the instructions.
  • Download and install MapConverter for Windows to convert your unlocked PC maps for use on your Mac.
  • System Requirements:
    Intel-based or PowerPC G4 or later Mac
    OS 10.4.11 or later
    512 MB RAM
    USB port

    Recommended:
    Intel-based Mac
    OS 10.5 or later
    1 GB RAM

Some older versions of Mapsource run on Linux via wine, so this may work on Macs too.
The current version causes a fatal exception error

Yes, Bro Fancheng is correct. Roadtrip for Mac is almost the equivalent of Mapsource for PC. Read here for discussions on using the software (including installing MFM as a map product): Garmin Roadtrip (for Mac OS X)
