I can't load maps onto my new Garmin GPS using my iBook 1.33.

The day Garmin makes their GPS's Mac compatible could be a long wait,
Is it worth waiting? Or should I just switch to a Windows laptop.

Should I sell my iBook 1.33 and buy a Windows laptop?

Garmin GPS Map 60 CSx that I bought from RadioWorld:
GPS-Map60CSx [GAR-GPSMAP60CSX] - $449.00$439.00 : Radioworld Canada Amateur Ham Radio GPS Marine VHF SSB radios Shortwave Wideband Radio Scanners CB FRS Central Toronto Ontario Canada (http://radioworld.ca/product_info.php?cPath=94&products_id=802)

Dave...Using my girlfriends Windows laptop in the interim.

Dave, Garmin has been compatible with Macs since January of 2006. Mine loads just fine.

Maybe take a look at this page for some help:

This thing is freaking amazing for traffic in Toronto,
I bought it because it is waterproof.

I have it mounted on my scooter with a RAM mount system.

The RAM mount systems are dirt cheap, I also use the mount for my digital camera.
