Any particular reason why you want an old version?

2 reasons:

1)Primarily a shedload of old files that are in the old Garmin format (so unreadable by V.6.16.n - the version I upgraded to when I upgraded the PC) , and my old V 1.3.? that came with the GPS-V doesn't do GPX..... Vs6.5 - 6.8 do both.

2)Minor Niggle - the trails on the new one are rubbish - the older versions show them as a nice red line that you can see, and if you want it more "delicately" shown on screen change the default size & colour. The default on the one I have is a thin thin grey with no option to change the default, so you have to alter every trail you bring on screen..... (have a look at the garmin forums - I'm not the only one that finds this "feature" annoying!)

But primarily to convert the files without having to push them all through the GPS -V, which will be a slightly(!) tedius process & Inflict various changes to files I have specially formatted for the GPS12......

Anyone got an old version on a disc they don't need any more?

I have spent a couple of weeks going flippin' nuts trying to use excel / notepad / online converters etc to convert the files and can either get the waypoints or the trails but not both (and Mapsource don't seem to want to allow me to add one import to t'other) so I am either going to end up going completely insane or loosing a ton of old data....

Can anyone help????

(and if you are worried about licencing, Garmin seem to throw the software out "for free" and get you to pay for the maps. I just cant get the prehistoric version of the software to "partial upgrade my V4.05!) (I have a copy of V 6.13.6 running on the "main" PC, but It's as much use at reading PCX5 as V 4.05 is at reading GPX.....

Edit - I've just realised how many smiles I've used here. May be I should just give up & stick to premix!!!!)

What version do you need, it's not clear from your post. I have several.

Unfortunately all my stuff is probably older than that, but I will check...

I'm pretty sure I have a version than can read both file formats, though. Let me have a look.

I have several versions of 4.xx and 5.x but nothing newer i'm afraid.

I recall when I had a similar problem needing an old version I found a site with all the archived versions, thats why I have so many. Sorry no record of the site though.
