Not clear what you are saying about the "maps" count. To see the number of segments, zoom way out so you can see the entire map, then use the map too l(looks like a little polygon) to select the entire map. It will then show the total number of segments in the Maps tab. Is that what you did?
Yes, that's what I did. Look like "maps" count in Mapsource is the same as segments.
Yes, those JAVAWA are great apps. US 100K TOPO is 553 segments using the JAVAWA apps.
Also, and with this related link: http://www.javawa.nl/virtualdevice.html [nofollow]
I got a the Virtual Device working
where I setup up a Virtual Garmin on SD card that I loaded US TOPO100K so now I can work
with the 100K TOPO map in Basecamp without having to plug in the Etrex 30x. It was a little tricky
to do and it takes Basecamp about 5 minutes before TOPO 100k shows up as a map, but that also
takes about 5 minutes with the Etrex 30x. Guess it takes a while to load when Basecamp starts.
Thanks for all the help Boyd, you've been a great help getting me started
