Everything that I've used so far. Open/Save Send & Receive from GPS Track Join Track Split
What does not
Haven't found anything that does NOT work. Track selection is flaky, as you have to select on the track color block. Checking a track properties forces you to name the track, even though it is already named. Annoyances, but not non-functional.
What was not tested
Anything not listed in the What Works section
To get Gold Rating - MapSource Version 6.15.11 DO NOT install gdiplus native from winetricks. (it was needed with earlier versions of Wine, now it appears to actually break it) DO install vcrun2005 from winetricks in order to Install. ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 ./.wine/dosdevices/com1 modprobe garmin_gps (remove it from /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf)

This will be added to as needed. Let me know if you have any info that should be in here.
To get 6.15.11 to work in Unbuntu 9.10:
1) Make sure your Wine is up-to-date (1.1.40 is latest known to work)
2) Get Winetricks
3) Run Winetricks
sh winetricks vcrun2005
4) If you've had a version of MapSource running previously and had to install gdiplus, you now need to disable it.
Open winecfg, go to the libraries tab, select gdiplus and remove.
5) Run the MapSource 6.15.11 installer.
6) Edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and add a # to comment out the following line:
so that it appears like this:
7) Load the garmin_gps module: modprobe garmin_gps
8) Create a symlink so that Mapsource can find your gps:
ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 ./.wine/dosdevices/com1
9) Run MapSource and enjoy.
