Which Garmin? The Edge 705, GPSMap 60CSx and possibly many older models 
do not need either option.

As far as I understand, the mkgmap --index option produces "half-cooked" 
files that must be transferred by MapSource to the device. Once that is 
done, the search should work. Others can hopefully chime in; I have 
never used MapSource.

Best regards,
