You won't. Mapsource requried a unlock code that is tied to your GPSr serial number.

Buy it.

I'd don't believe any of the Metroguide versions required any sort of unlock code. I know V6 and V7 don't use one. The Mapsource Topo also does not use unlock codes. City Navigator and City Select, however, do use the codes.

Irregardless, the MnGCA Forum is not a place to be discussing pirated/borrowed/etc software.

If you purchased the software legally then call Garmin, they will be thrilled to help you.
