MapSource for Macs!

Garmin announced today that it will begin making all of its hardware and software compatible with Mac OS X. Beginning this spring, Garmin will offer a Mac version of their Training Center software. Also this spring, MotionBased will be OS X compatible. But the big news in my mind is this tidbit:

"By the end of 2006, Garmin intends to have made all its popular hardware and software applications Mac OS X compatible. This includes the ability to load MapSource map data to Garmin units via a Mac, as well as waypoint and trip planning applications."

    Two years later this is still not reality

  2. Well.. make that four years and 4 months later. Still no OS X mapsource. Odd.

  3. No, but MapSource appears to be on the way out. Maybe this will help…

    I have had Garmin handhelds for 10+ years, used for backpacking. I have always been a PC user and recently converted to a Mac Powerbook so I need to be able to download my trips onto the Mac. Problem is the software I have used until now was TOPO 2008 and Trip & Waypoint Manager which of course are not Mac compatible. I have gone onto the Garmin webstore and cannot seem to find what I need to get back on the trail, or maybe I am just not looking in the right place?
    Anyone have any ideas? Yep I know I need to update the TOPO to a current year.
