Colorado 2011 loaded into BaseCamp and works fine, but will not zoom in for detail on Oregon 750

This sounds like the same problem everyone is having. Garmin made a change to Basecamp/MapInstall last May that prevents GPSFileDepot maps from installing. Some people suspect this was intentional, but more likely it's just a bug since it (evidently) also prevents the installation of "real" Garmin maps.

More info and some solutions here:

BaseCamp installs and works fine (changes to higher detail as you zoom in), but will not zoom in for detail on Oregon 750

Yes, that is exactly the problem. The map will look fine in Basecamp on your computer, and when you send it to the GPS everything appears to be OK. But when you try to use the map on the GPS, you will not see any detail.

There are many threads here on this topic. Please see the one I linked to above for more information.

Thanks Boyd. I will go for the older Basecamp version.
