    Does your mate actually need the new maps at all?

    I know the PC will read maps off the device in Basecamp but I'd like to use Mapsource also and want more than just the global map on the PC.

    Any help appreciated.
    Have a look at JaVaWa Device Manager and GMTK. The Device Manager program has an icon to 'manage maps' which might enable a copy to be made to PC. Alternatively, the GMTK program allows maps to be backed-up and restored (ie copied), and it may work with the map on the 660.

    As Wapping says though, the 660 may well have lifetime maps in which case your mate just needs to connect the 660 to his PC and log in to his Garmin account via Garmin Express. Or recover his login details if he has forgotten them.

    It would be useful, I'm doing most of the route planning so if the maps are the same it should go a bit more smoothly on the trip, he previously used a device with LM but as he upgraded his bike he went for the cheaper Nav option to use the factory fitted mount.

    got all the information I need now thanks to all

    In short, no to either. Garmin maps are locked and require a key, so can’t be transferred between devices, so a map from one device can’t be transferred to another device, even with the JavaWa tools.
    Garmin maps to all intents and purposes can’t be copied from a device to a computer. The device uses a .img file and the computer uses a .map or .mapi file. You could do it if you read the map into a map compiler, then unlocked it, then compiled a new map and created a .mapi file, but it’s non trivial.
    Of course using Basecamp you can view a map on the computer that exists on the device.
    Get your tight mate to buy the maps, Garmin are doing 25% off just now.
