Uploading maps on Basecamp
« on: April 28, 2013, 11:20:19 AM »
 I recently downloaded a topo map file for all of BC Canada. I put this file (gmapsupp.img) in the Garmin folder in my microusb. The map appears to show up on my device, but it doesn't seem to exist in basecamp. How can I make it visible in Basecamp!?

Any help is greatly appreciated.. I've quite new with GPS units and would really like to get this working

It is not from this site. I had downloaded it some time ago and can't recall where..

The file is an unlocked Garmin Canada Topo v.4 of BC

I tried using mapsettoolkit and cGPS mapper to upload it onto Basecamp.. It seems to successfully convert the file, but then I am unable to open Mapsource or Basecamp afterwards, unless I uninstall the the mapset.

I simply get a message stating that there is a problem with the map installation and I must reinstall and open basemap again..
