David,

First, no, you don't HAVE to load V8 to your 2730, only if you want to. Basically, it updates the data since the last version (street, interchanges, POI's etc...).

Since I don't know which V8 dvd you have, I can only help you with the one like I have. I got the "Update DVD" which doesn't install anything to your computer. I just hooked the GPC to the PC via the USB cable and followed the directions on the screen.

If you have Mapsource V8, I don't know if that actually updates the GPS. Call Garmin and ask them. The Update DVD is free. Maybe your unlock codes will work on the Update disk.

David,

I just did to my 2730 what you are trying to do to yours.

I don't remember how I did it. However, I think that if you insert the DVD into your computer and let it boot up, it will give you the option of instlaling it to your computer and in the process will also offer you the option of installing it to your gps.

I'm sure someone else will give a better answer soon though. :D
