General Discussion / Re: GPSMAP 60 CX can't load an img file-HELP

Out of curiosity, now that I have managed to load the img file onto my device, how would I go about viewing it on my PC? Basecamp?  Remember the Gamin GPSMAP 60Cx does not install as an accessible device in Win7 explorer.

Thank you Boyd. I needed reassurance that I was doing this correctly. Turns out that I was using the incorrect screen to select the map on my device. I followed the instructions "Changing Maps Displayed on the GPSMap 60C(S)x, 76C(S)x, and eTrex Series. Which can be found  here

gpsfiledepot.com/tutorials/how-to-change-which-map-is-displayed-on-a-garmin-gps/

What i still don't know is if it will actually work in the field. Is there a way to test this from my current location?

Thanks again

I have a garmin 60cx and I am trying to load the device with the following .img file. Basecamp doesn't see it and Mapsource responded with "gmapsupp_IslandTopoV2.img is not a valid mapsource file and could not be opened.

Also tried loading the file onto the SD card in a folder I created called Garmin. Map was not found on device

I also tried Mapsettoolkit to load the .img file and still no joy.

The website that contains the file is located here..its Iceland

Running Windows 7

I'm pulling my hair out. HELP
