How To Upgrade:
from PatchMap on MapSource to PatchMap on MapBuddy
Follow these instructions to upgrade your PatchMap.
PatchMap in MapSource, due to Garmin changing the rules, has been deprecated. MapBuddy is a program created by SkyBase so we have much more control over how it functions. MapBuddy is a free download available from our website and here.
Once MapBuddy is successfully loaded you are ready to get a trial or purchase the PatchMap (DisPatch) Extension. The code for the Extension, once e-mailed to you, is to be inserted into the PatchMap DisPatch slot under the Manage Extensions drop-down next to the Gear icon. Once it is re-opened MapBuddy will have some magical capabilities, including such things as communicating with any Garmin GPS unit … moving points & tracks and even georeferenced photos back and forth.
