Ver. 6.5 - 01/03/2005
Changed software version number from 6.3 to 6.5.
Updated the default document format to the new GDB version 2 format.
Due to the availability of the Garmin nRoute application, no changes were made to the MapSource GPS tracking functionality.
Provided the capability for the user to define up to 64 custom waypoint symbols.
Added the capability to import GPX documents that use both versions 1.0 and 1.1 of the GPX schema and export GPX documents using version 1.1 of the schema.
Added the ability to batch-edit certain properties of user waypoints.
Added the ability to open GDB vers. 1, GDB vers. 2, MPS, GPX vers. 1.0, GPX vers. 1.1, and PCX5 documents using the "Open" command in the "File" menu. Added the ability to save data to GDB version 1, GDB version 2, MPS, tab-delimited text, DXF, and GPX vers. 1.1 documents using the "Save As" command in the "File" menu. Removed the "Import" and "Export" commands from the "File" menu.
Simplified the selection of symbols in the Waypoint Properties dialog.
Added the capability to do online software updates for non-Asian versions of MapSource.
Provided a right-click context menu available from the main MapSource window for showing and hiding of the MapSource toolbars. In previous versions, this could only be accomplished from the View menu.
Made some modifications to the Route Properties dialog to simplify the user experience. MapSource now disables the "Insert Waypoints" button when there are no waypoints in the active document, and disables the "Show on Map" when the route is empty. It is also now possible to insert multiple via points into the route in a single insert.
Added the capability for users to create a route by selecting one or more waypoints in the list on the waypoints tab and then selecting the appropriate menu option from the right-click context menu.
Added technology to allow for address searching in Asian map products.
Moved the capability to adjust map detail from the preferences to the view menu/toolbar and removed the map detail slider control from the display tab of the preferences property sheet.
Added the Icelandic Grid (ISN93).
Added visual feedback on the vertical route profile so that the user knows the exact altitude and distance for a point they click on the graph. Also added the capability to select a second arbitrary point on the graph and determine the altitude and distance changes between the two points.
Added new auto-routing configuration option to avoid carpool lanes, if desired. Note that this feature is not supported in all map products.
Changed the "OK" button to a "Close" button on non-editable properties dialogs (such as the tide prediction dialog) to decrease user confusion about how to exit the dialog.
Added the capability for a user to be able to automatically select all the maps adjacent to a route, track, or waypoint.
Modified drawing code so that the map labels are now drawn on top of GPS data like routes and tracks, but still appear below waypoint labels and the find results marker.
Added direction arrows on selected routes so that it is easier for users to discern which direction a selected route is going.
Lowered the minimum speed on the routing properties page to allow the use of more realistic speeds for generating routes using alternate vehicles such as pedestrians and bicycles. Also raised the maximum speed to allow more flexibility for the user in route planning.
Added category & subcategory classifications to property pages for map features. This was done to help users better understand the classification scheme and be able to use it in feature finds.
Added ability to zoom in on sections of a route profile.
Reorganized categories used by the find places and find nearest dialogs to make finding items more intuitive.
Added a reset button to clear the search parameter fields on the find dialog.
Changed the help menu commands. We now have the command "MapSource help" which replaces the two commands "Contents" and "Index" for accessing the MapSource help file. This was necessary due to changes made by Microsoft in the behavior of some system help file functions.
Modified the context menu that a user gets when he clicks on the map window to have the following behaviors: A context menu in the map window will only apply to one gps feature (the one under the mouse when the user right clicks), and Non route-specific menu items should not be in the route context menu.
Modified MapSource so that all files, regardless of type, are added to the most recently opened files list on the file menu.
Added the capability to create waypoints with known altitudes at any arbitrary position on maps that contain elevation data. On such map products, previous versions of MapSource would only fill in the altitude field in waypoints that were created on contour lines or point features that had a known altitude.
Removed option for sending terrain shading data to GPS from the Maps tab. The determination to send this information will now be made automatically depending on whether the GPS the maps are being sent to supports it.
Added technology to the find dialog for address and intersection searches that will exclude cities from the list of available cities that don't have any associated road information.
Modified the process for transferring maps to a GPS device so that MapSource checks to ensure that it can successfully unlock all the maps being transferred on the destination GPS before starting the lengthy index-building step. This will prevent customers from having to sit through the index building of their map set and then find out that some of the maps are unable to be unlocked (and therefore unusable) on their GPS.
Changed the label of the column on the routes tab that was previously labeled "waypoints" to be labeled "via points".
Improved the error text that a user gets when a write operation to a USB card programmer fails to verify.
Added some improvements to the device auto-detection code to decrease the likelihood of a failure while searching for user devices.
Changed behavior of route dialog so that if a user aborts the calculation of driving directions when clicking on the driving directions tab, they will stay on the via points tab and not see the driving directions tab with empty driving directions.
Removed term "non-dangerous" that was in the description of some marine map features.
Put in improved error reporting to assist the user when problems are encountered trying to transfer a map set to a Garmin iQue device.
Added additional error reporting parameters such as stack traces to certain error messages to improve the ability to debug the error.
Changed the logic in the driving directions generation software to better discriminate between the need for a "u-turn" and a "sharp left/right" turn in appropriate conditions.
Modified MapSource to provide the user with more useful feedback in certain situations where the program failed because of an invalid entry in the MapSource registry entries.
Modified the transfer dialogs to correctly reflect the fact that the cfQue device does not currently support route transfer.
Modified the waypoint dialog to correctly truncate the timestamp string when it was too long for the field it is displayed in.
Added an improved description of the removable media devices that show up in the list of devices that are automatically detected.
Added additional postal code filtering to the finder logic to help speed up searches being done when a postal code is provided.
Modified the find nearest logic to speed up the find nearest searches.
Modified find places and find nearest so that the user has the ability to abort finds that take a long time.
Added elevation information to the position information that we currently display on the status bar when the user hovers the mouse over the map. This will be available in certain map products that include altitude information.
Repositioned the toolbar on the track properties page so that it would be easier for users to understand that the toolbar functions will work in the name field as well as the trackpoints list.
Modified the find nearest dialog to remember when the user types an entry in the "containing" field.
Modified the find nearest dialog so that the "Waypoints" category option is not displayed if there are not currently any waypoints in MapSource (so that the find would always fail).
Modified the find dialog so that the Find button will be pushed if user hits the enter key after typing in some entries in the find parameters.
Modified MapSource so that when a waypoint is created on a city map feature, the application will automatically use the City icon.
Modified the find places dialog so that input typed in the parameter fields is saved after the user clicks find. This was done to create a consistent behavior with the find nearest dialog. The previous version of the find places dialog saved the input data immediately after the user typed it into the field (whether find was hit or not). It was decided that this could be confusing to users.
Added support for scroll-wheel in the auto-complete fields on the find dialog.
Removed maximize and minimize buttons from the Waypoint dialog since these buttons were not appropriate and did not work correctly as well.
Added the select all menu option to the context menu that is brought up when the user right clicks on the via-points list in the route dialog.
Fixed issue where find results marker on map was not correctly cleared in the map window when the user cancelled out of a find recent or find nearest search.
Fixed issue where some controls on the route dialog were not being drawn correctly when the dialog was being resized.
Fixed issue where detailed map data was not correctly display in some maps associated with certain Blue Chart products.
Fixed issue where the auto-router would fail when trying to route in certain map conditions.
Fixed issue where MapSource would fail when certain modifications were made to a waypoint in the Waypoint Properties dialog.
Fixed issue where the Waypoint label was covered up by the map feature label in some instances.
Fixed issue where vertical route profiler could fail on extremely long routes.
Reworded potentially confusing prompt that was displayed when MapSource was started with no map products installed.
Fixed issue where the wrong color was being used to fill in certain non-map areas at some zoom scales.
Fixed issue on the find nearest dialog where the search distance was not being updated correctly if the user modified this value and then initiated a search by hitting the Enter key.
Fixed issue where the find dialogs might not correctly remember the category/subcategory of the previous feature search in languages other than English.
Fixed issue where a marquee created with the map selection tool might select the wrong maps.
Changed the color of the marine exposed rock symbol.
Changed the line style of marine clearing lines.
Fixed issue with reporting transfer errors with removable media.
Fixed issue where if the pointer hovered over a selected waypoint and it was deleted, the pointer popup wasn't removed.
Changed behavior of "Show on Map" for individual route and track points to be consistent with the waypoint's behavior.
Fixed some localization issues in several Asian languages.
Fixed several auto-routing issues.
Fixed a vertical profiling issue.
Fixed issue with trying to create a route near the North or South pole.
(This version can be downloaded from: Garmin Support Download Section)

Ver. 6.1 - 05/24/2004
MapSource 6.0 and newer will no longer support Windows 95. Also, for NT 4.0 computers, MapSource will now require Internet Explorer 4.0 or greater to be installed.
Updated the toolbar and menu layouts to simplify the experience for new users.
Changed the view toolbar so that the product selection box is not shown unless the user has multiple map products installed.
Added the capability to auto-detect all types of connected Garmin devices. This simplifies the process a user must go through to send/receive data with their Garmin device. Technology was also included into the auto-detection of devices to remember the last auto-detected device. Thus, if the user always has the same devices connected to the same ports, they should not have to search for their device more than once.
Updated various places where MapSource interacts with the GPS to use the new auto-detect technology, including transferring data to/from the GPS, getting the GPS' unit id, renaming the GPS, and setting the PC Clock from the GPS.
Added ability for the user to associate file links or Internet addresses with waypoints, routes, and tracks. These links will be exported to text and DXF files when a file export is performed.
Added support for waypoint categories.
Added support for terrain shading display for products that have this information in their map data.
Added option to the main Maps tab to include/exclude terrain shading map data in map transfers to the GPS. This option is enabled if any maps in the selected map set contain terrain shading information as part of their map data.
Added support for vertical profiles of routes on maps that support vertical route profile information.
Changed the waypoint dialog to allow the user to show more or less detail. The default setting is to show less detail.
Modified MapSource to detect fully locked map products at start-up and notify the user of available unlocking options.
Changed MapSource to use the UnlockWizard for providing the user with map unlock services in non-Asian language versions of the program.
Added 'find recent' and 'find nearest' options to the route dialog.
Provided users with the capability to limit "find nearest" search results to those matches that "contain" specified words.
Added the ability for a user to perform a 'find nearest' search from the context menu of the via point list in the route dialog. This allows the user to find map features closest to the via point that the user selects in the list when he or she right-clicks to bring up the context menu.
Improved interface for finder. Added "auto complete" technology that uses a drop-down control to display word matches while the user types.
Removed the color field from waypoint and track dialogs since MapSource does not use this value. The color value associated with a waypoint or track is still preserved as part of the item's stored information so that it will still be present for GPS devices that utilize this value. However, users can no longer view and edit this value from the MapSource user interface.
Updated MapSource to use the new GDB file format.
Added capability to import files from the old MPS file format and export GDB files to the old MPS file format. When importing older format files, the base name of the files is preserved in an effort to simplify the conversion process.
Added the capability to copy and paste between this version of MapSource and other applications (including older versions of MapSource) which may use a different version of the data.
Updated the route dialog to copy a text version of the via-points onto the clipboard. Also provided the capability to copy the text of driving directions to the clipboard from the driving directions tab.
Added temperature and time stamp to waypoints.
Improved the vertical track profile by making the window resizable and adding keyboard support for scrolling and zooming.
Reorganized route and track dialogs to make more commonly used fields more readily accessible to new users.
Added a preference for avoiding unpaved roads while autorouting. Note that this preference may not be fully supported by some older Garmin map products.
Removed the use of the F3/Shift-F3 shortcuts, which were used for navigating the recently found places.
Added the accelerator Ctrl-Alt-F to bring up the Recently Found Places.
Changed the 'recently found places' dialog to automatically select the first 'recently found place' when it is brought up.
The strings specifying the types of files MapSource can export were translated so that they will appear in the same language as MapSource. The previous version always displayed these in English regardless of what language MapSource was using.
Changed the color of the question mark being displayed over the vessel (when its location is unknown) to white for enhanced visibility.
Modified the application so that all dialogs with system menus in the upper-left corner (such as the route dialog) will now display the MapSource icon for this menu. The previous version displayed the default Windows icon to mark the menu.
Added code so that MapSource beta builds now expire 60 days after their build date. After expiration, the application will instruct the user on how to update their application to the latest version.
Changed MapSource so that the entire map is not redrawn when the crosshair is enabled.
Added access to the "duplicate routes" function in applicable MapSource context menus.
Removed the "make waypoint" button from the finder dialog in situations where the user opens the finder from within the route dialog.
Changed style of MapSource toolbars to have "grippers" so that the individual toolbars are more easily visible to the user.
Added notification for transfers to the iQue reminding the user of the need to perform a Hot Sync with the device to complete the transfer.
Added new waypoint symbols to MapSource. Added the following symbols in the colors red, green, and blue: flags, pins, circles, ovals, rectangles, blocks, letters A-D, numbers 0-9, and triangles. In addition, added the following individual symbols: blue diamonds, blue squares, bike trail, police station, fishing hot spot facility, ski resort, ice skating, wrecker, no anchor, beacon, coast guard, reef, weed bed, drop off, dock, marina, bait and tackle, and stump. Modified the waypoint symbol previously called 'marina' to now be called 'anchor' to better associate it with the symbol.
Because of quantity of new waypoint symbols, the color descriptor for the waypoint symbol types that have colors was moved to the end of the symbol ID so that like icons would be grouped together by symbol type and not by color (for example, "red square" is now "square, red" and will be grouped with squares and not red waypoint symbols).
Added the RT 90 grid.
Modified the scale on map window to display text notifying the user when all map detail is locked and, thus, not visible or available for transfer to a GPS.
Added the capability to display a highway's cardinal direction as part of its map label.
Added the capability to display tide stations notes when a station has this data available in the map.
Added the postal code parameter to address and intersection searches to allow users to limit these results to those in certain postal codes. The postal codes users are able to use are specific to the Garmin map product in which they are searching. Some map products may not support this capability.
Made the waypoint, route, and track dialogs consistent in the way that they handle repositioning and zooming of the map window that occurs while the user is in the properties dialog. Now, each dialog will remember the initial position/zoom scale of the map when the user opens the properties for a waypoint, route, or track. If the user exits the dialog by clicking 'cancel', MapSource will return to the position/zoom scale it was at when the dialog started. If they exit by clicking 'Ok', the dialog will remain in the last position/zoom scale that it was while the user was in the dialog.
Added new map symbol for non-dangerous underwater rocks.
Added inherent support for mouse wheel scrolling to the map window, vertical track profile, and tide dialog. This is necessary on both machines with Microsoft's Intellipoint version 5.0 and newer (since Universal Scrolling was removed in version 5.0) and on machines that lacked Intellipoint.
Changed how MapSource interacts with the system clipboard so that users can cut and paste between instances of MapSource without having to leave Mapsource open for this to work. In previous versions, if you copied something to the clipboard and exited MapSource, the information would not be on the clipboard for pasting when you opened up another application. Now, MapSource data will stay on the clipboard until the next time the user does a new cut or copy.
Changed the precision of the display of inter-tidal depths to be one tenth of a unit. Also, changed the way inter-tidal depths that are actually heights above the water are displayed to be consistent with the manner in which they are displayed on paper charts.
Updated the map transfer process so that if the user selects a map set that is too large for his or her destination device, MapSource will provide them with a more useful error message. The message lets the user know how big their selected mapset is and how much room the destination device has, so that the user will have an easier time determining how many maps must be removed from the current set in order for the new set to fit.
Moved via point properties button on route dialog from the route dialog's toolbar to a standard button labeled "Properties".
Changed how waypoint name conflicts are handled. We now will automatically resolve these conflicts when possible. If this is not possible, we have added a more informative error message for situations where the user must make a decision about how to handle the conflict.
Updated the Austrian datum to match the new standards.
Modified the route and track dialogs to allow the user to paste into the dialog when no item is selected if the route or track is empty.
Updated route dialog to allow copy, cut, or delete when the item is selected.
Changed transfer to GPS code to strictly enforce Garmin-defined waypoint specifications. This was done to prevent failures that occurred on some GPS' when waypoints with extremely long names/descriptions were transferred.
Updated waypoint dialogs to only change the symbol and display type after the user exits the field when they have made a change to the value. The previous code would change the icon every time the field changed which resulted in the icon changing while the user was merely scrolling through the list using the arrow keys.
Provided some optimizations for improving the drawing speed of the map.
Changed right-click menu option on tide stations from "Feature Properties..." to "Predict Tides..." for added clarity as to what this menu selection actually does.
Changed the menu option for bringing up map data unlocking features from "Unlock Regions" to "Unlock Maps".
Added menu shortcut key 'M' for the File menu's "Send Mail..." feature.
Added the ability to export waypoint categories to DXF and tab-delimited text files.
Changed medical facility symbol to a blue cross.
Added ability to receive tracks from the ForeRunner GPS.
Added access to duplicate routes function in the context menu you get when right-clicking on routes in the Routes tab.
Added the ability to search for partial strings in the finder for feature search feature names and city search city names.
Updated the trademark symbol after the name 'MapSource' in the splash screen to be a registered trademark.
Modified file export dialog to automatically fill in the base name of the current gdb file as the default name for the exported file.
Modified track stats display so that if a track is selected from either the tracks tab or the map window, the statistics display will always show the track stats for the entire track.
Added capability to remember the last file extension type from which the user imported.
Fixed issue where a detailed map might not be visible at certain zoom levels if the map is very close to the edge of the screen.

Fixed issue where MapSource would fail if the user pasted auto-generated routes from one instance of MapSource to another non-empty instance of the program and then tried to replace any duplicate waypoints.
Changed MapSource so that all devices that allow map transfer will consistently and correctly handle how they check for whether a map set of a given size can be transferred to a device. Also added code so that if the size of a set of maps is greater than the size of the destination device, it will alert the user to this problem much earlier in the process.
Added support for IOS tide stations.
Fixed issue where MapSource would exit with a Window error message if the language dll file was missing. Now the program detects that the language file is missing and notifies the user that he or she must reinstall it.
Ver. 5.3 - 10/03/2003
Fixed issue where the abbreviations for north, south, east and west were incorrectly displayed as localized strings in latitude and longitudes.
Fixed issue where the go to position dialog was not working correctly in Asian localized versions of MapSource.
Fixed some translation issues in Asian language resources.

Fixed issue where the route dialog would fail if an 'undo' or 'redo' action resulted in an empty route and the user clicked on the driving directions tab.
Fixed issue in the route dialog where an attempt to add consecutive duplicate via points in the route resulted in the undo button being activated - but when the user clicked on the button, nothing was undone.
Fixed issue where the autorouter was sometimes adding unnecessary loops when calculating autoroutes.
Fixed issue where, if a route had non-consecutive duplicate via points and the user tried to delete any one of these duplicates, MapSource would always delete the first one, even if the first waypoint was not the one selected.
Fixed issue in MapSource where the redo button was not being disabled correctly when the user performed a waypoint insertion and the redo button was already enabled.
Fixed issue where MapSource would have a pronounced delay if the user tried to insert a waypoint into a route with no insertion point selected in that route.

Integrated translation corrections made by Taiwan to the Traditional Chinese, Korean, and Japanese resources.
Fixed an issue where the Tide Prediction calendar control was not working correctly in some date ranges when Windows was set to a time zone that automatically adjusted for daylight-savings time.
Corrected an issue where MapSource would allow tide predictions to occur outside the appropriate time range restrictions imposed by the current tide prediction code. This would lead to some invalid prediction values for the out-of-range times.
Fixed an issue where MapSource would crash if the registry value that stored the user preference for distance units, which was set by MapSource 4.09 and older, contained an invalid value. Now, if an invalid string is encountered for this preference, MapSource will replace it with the default value.

Modified code to improve performance of data transfers to GPS unit.
Fixed several defects associated with the handling of Asian characters.
Fixed problem where hovering over the print icon did not show a tooltip.
Fixed bug where route headings were being exported incorrectly.
Fixed bug where scrollbar on the real time tracking page was not always displayed when it should have been.
Modified creation of the waypoint description so that it used the name of the nearest feature, if any, or a date/time stamp if no feature name is available. MapSource 4.10 always inserted an English language data/time stamp in this field.
Fixed bug where MapSource would crash if it could not correctly read in the value for Grid, Datum, or Heading written to the registry by an older version of MapSource.
Ver. 4.10 - 12/13/2002

Modified cursors for adding, moving, replacing, and inserting points into routes using the selection pointer to display a graphical cue instead of English text labels.
Added new waypoint symbols (contacts) for Rino.
Updated the version of the MPS file format to 1.04. Note that MPS files saved using 4.10 are not backward compatible with previous versions of MapSource.
Modified MapSource so that user waypoints created by the route tool follow the user preference for display mode as set in the waypoint preferences tab.
Modified the transfer preferences page so that users who have no serial ports will not get stuck in an infinite loop with an invalid input prompt repeatedly being displayed if they enter this page.
Auto routing progress bar is now only displayed when generating routes with maps that have autorouting information.
Added check box for including autorouting information in transferring data to and from a device to the transfer dialog. Retained a duplicate of this check box on the transfer preferences page. This new check box was added to simplify the process of not including autorouting data in a transfer to a device after the user has been prompted that the map size was too large for their unit and told that they should try removing the autorouting data for the transfer.
Modified the Export dialog so that the option to export to DXF files is not available if only Maps are selected.
Route exporting was updated to export autoroutes correctly.
Fixed bug in Waypoint Properties dialog that caused MapSource to fail when an invalid depth was entered.

Fixed bug where waypoints submerged under routes when using the map tool.
Fixed a problem in the Route Properties dialog where an invalid input prompt was displayed twice to the user when the user entered an empty route name and the Enter key was pressed.
Modified the Find dialog so that it switches back to the current product upon canceling. If a search has found a feature in another product of the same family, MapSource automatically switches the product to show the feature. The prior behavior did not switch back to the current product if the user cancelled after such a search.
Modified the Error dialog to prevent selection of the text inside it.
Fixed bug in Track Properties dialog that caused MapSource to fail when user paged down in the trackpoints list.
Added the capability to display a slide show of logos after the splash screen is displayed.
Added the capability to display copyrights (text and logos) in the lower-left corner of the map window if a copyright should be displayed there.
Removed the restriction that the names of waypoints, routes, tracks, map sets, etc. can only have characters which are English letters & numbers, blank spaces, +, and -. Users can now enter any character for these labels. However, the ability to enter and display these characters correctly is now dependent on the language settings for the user's operating system (i.e. to enter and display a waypoint with Chinese characters in the name, the user would have to change the default language to Chinese).
Modified how waypoint names are created from map labels to work with internationalized map products. Now the label from the map is truncated to a user-defined, fixed number of characters (with white spaces removed) and then made unique. Previously, MapSource created abbreviations for names, but this did not work properly in non-English map products.
Fixed a bug where the map drew twice when the viewable screen spanned the Anti-Meridian.
Fixed defects where MapSource would crash when the screen was locked and Mapsource was either displaying a popup window, transferring data to the GPS, or real-time tracking.
Fixed bug on Serial and USB transfer pages where tabbing between fields would not work properly if the OK button had the keyboard input focus and it was disabled.
Fixed bug where the Center on selected item feature in Track Properties dialog was centering incorrectly on every 99n + 1 trackpoint.
Fixed bug where Find would not locate Bismarck if North Dakota or ND was specified in the state field.
Updated NMEA real-time tracking so that MapSource can now do 3D tracking rather than only 2D tracking as was done in the previous version.
Fixed defects in real-time tracking in NMEA mode.
Fixed time field on Tide dialog to display times according to Windows regional settings.
Fixed problems with items on the map not being drawn properly while real-time tracking.
Fixed bug where inappropriate entries were being added to right-click menus when there are more than 25 items in the menu.
Modified MapSource so that it would not display a right-click menu to select a "feature" when only a single feature was available.
Modified MapSource to not draw overlapping, adjacent trackpoints at all zoom scales. This will prevent the track from being obscured.
Renamed "Detail" tab in Preferences dialog to "Display".
Added the capability for the user to change the font used for map labels, popup windows, and waypoint text from Display tab in Preferences dialog.
Increased the default map font size to improve readability.
Modified the Select Waypoints dialog so that when a user types a letter, it selects the next waypoint in the list whose name starts with that letter. In previous versions, it selected the next waypoint in the list whose symbol type started with that letter.
Provided a visual highlight on both the map window and the Waypoints, Routes, and Tracks tabs so that it is more obvious to the user which one has the input focus.
Modified the Waypoints, Routes, and Tracks tabs on the main application so that when one of these tabs has the input focus and the user types a letter, it scrolls down to the first item in the list that has a name that starts with that letter.
Modified the way that the keyboard shortcuts for the tools work so that these shortcuts can only be used to select a tool if the map window has the input focus.
Fixed a bug that caused autorouting to fail when No Map was selected.
Fixed bug that caused MapSource to fail when the user aborted a USB transfer during the Map Initialization phase.
Fixed problem in real-time tracking where the check box for keeping the vehicle on the map was not being unchecked when the user caused the vessel to go off the screen from the Go To Position dialog.
Fixed bug where the 'Recalculate', 'Invert', and 'Show On Map' buttons were not being correctly disabled when there were no points in the route.
Fixed bug that caused the edit boxes in Waypoint, Route, Track, and Map Set dialogs to not be highlighted properly when the user tabs to one.
Fixed defect where degree symbol was not displayed correctly on non-Western European language operating systems.
Fixed defect where MapSource would crash if the name of a waypoint was edited using the Waypoint Edit button on the Route Properties dialog.
Added ability to view a product's "Notice" file, such as an End User License Agreement, if the product contains such a file.
Fixed problem with missing "Poor Signal" indication when GPS 35 USB loses coverage.
Edited pop-up text over generic highways (e.g. those in Europe) to not prepend "Hwy", while still prepending "Hwy" to US state highways.
Modified MapSource's behavior so that when it is activated by the mouse, it handles the clicks in a consistent fashion with other Windows programs. (i.e., If the mouse-click is on the minimize, maximize, close, or system button, it responds immediately to the click. But if mouse-click is on the client area, such as the map or the scrollbars, it only activates MapSource without further processing.)
Made updates to the Autorouting feature to fix a bug where MapSource would fail to observe access restrictions on certain service roads when computing a route.
Added logic to handle situations that arise when the user switches to an installed map product whose required code page is not supported by the user's operating system. If this situation occurs, MapSource will notify the user of the problem, and switch them to "No Map".
Modified default value for Finder Address matches to 100 instead of 25.
Fixed bug that caused MapSource to fail when the user would change the route ID in the route dialog and then try to show the route on the map from the right click menu.
Fixed bug in the waypoint selection dialog where the user's selection would be highlighted, but not be made visible, if the selected waypoint was not already visible in the window.
Added some optimizations to increase autorouting speed. Improved the autorouter's handling of data problems present in some map products. Fixed problem where the autorouter was failing to correctly handle an error reported by the database.
Modified autorouting so that it would correctly route pedestrians against the flow of traffic on one-way streets.
Fixed defect where PCX files were being imported incorrectly in certain regional settings.
Fixed problem where the font dialog provided access to certain fonts that would not display map labels correctly.
Fixed problem where the incorrect keyboard shortcut was listed for "showing selected items on map" in German resources.
Fixed bug that caused MapSource to crash if two waypoints symbols had the same name.
Fixed bug where MapSource crashed while displaying popup windows when the user was hovering over features near the edge of the map window.
Modified finder dialog so that the buttons for spell and find address and city searches were disabled if the current map product lacked the required data. Also modified finder dialog so that the spell and find feature worked correctly for Asian languages.

GTC now supports Power workout creation/editing.
GTC now supports Repeat Step targets other than step count in support of newer devices that provide this feature(Repeat Until).
GTC now supports Power Zones and Bikes in the User Profile.
GTC now supports auto-error reporting like more current Garmin Windows applications.
GTC can now properly sync user profile with FIT mass storage devices such as the Edge 500/800 & Forerunner 110/210.
GTC no longer has a rigid folder structure where top level folders force a sport type on the folder's sub-elements. User's can create sub-folders and mix elements in any manner they desire regardless of the sport type of the activity or workout. The only provided "System Folders" are "My " and "Imported " where is Activities, Workouts, or Courses, and a folder with the default "Example Workouts".
GTC will allow the user to directly import Activity Fit Files from the Import->History menu.
GTC provides the user with the ability to change the sport type on activities and workouts since this can no longer be accomplished by moving an activity between Sport specific folders.
While GTC will not bring in multiple copies of the same activity to "My Activities" when doing a receive from device, the application also no longer requires that activities have a unique start time. Thus, a user may have an activity that was imported from a TCX file in "Imported Activities" that duplicates an activity brought over from the device in "My Activities".
