I've been at this for 3 hours now and I finally give up and am desperately in need of help.
I've downloaded gpsfiledepot.com/maps/view/28 - CALI TOPO - and installed the contents to my desktop.
I have followed the instructions in gpsfiledepot.com/tutorials/how-to-load-.img-files-into-mapsource-with-mapsettoolkit/ under the section "The Map Has a .tdb File"
I move on to gpsfiledepot.com/tutorials/how-to-load-maps-on-my-garmin-gps-unit/#pcbasecamp using BaseCamp to install the map - when I right click my device I don't see ANYTHING to "install map", as I understand it, this is old instructions, but still, I can't find anywhere that indicates I can install a map supposedly made available through MapSetToolKit.
so I try "Loading The Maps With MapSource on a PC" section of the same previous URL - I do not see ANY drop down box with ANY topo maps installed, including the one's supposedly made available via MapSetToolKit.
I am thinking maybe I should use OLDER versions of BaseCamp and MapSource? And unpatch my device? Do you think Garmin may have prevented 3rd party Topo Maps via patch?
Has anyone been able to successfully do this? Or should I just pay for the maps already?
sooooooo ***king frustrated!!!! HELP!
