How to install Garmin Topo Canada V4 DVD on Mac OS X Sierra

Recommended Posts

Topo Canada v4 is an excellent product however hasn't been updated since 2008, so the installation DVD is no longer compatible with Mac OS X Sierra (OS X 10.12).

I spoke with Garmin support and got a solution for installing this on the Mac:

  • Click Finder
  • Click "Go" in menu bar
  • Click Utilities
  • Click Terminal
  • Type the following in the terminal window: open -a "Garmin MapManager" /Volumes/*/*.gmap
  • MapManager window will pop up, click Install.
  • DVD should spin up and start installing maps.
  • After installation finishes, click Close.

After that maps should be available for BaseCamp, which can be downloaded for free at: http://www.garmin.com/en-CA/shop/downloads/basecamp

After launching BaseCamp, click Maps in the menu bar, then click "Topo Caanda V4" to use Too Canada maps.
