Map Making Support / topo lines not showing
« on: July 18, 2019, 09:05:53 PM »
I created a hiking map in Basecamp using a link from gpsfiledepot. The map is USM PAcific OSM Topo. When I install it on my Garmin Etrex20X, the trail and waypoints look fine, but there are no top lines. What am I missing?

Thanks. Those directions were confusing, but knowing that the map was actually there (not needing to import) helped. I hit the maps menu and there it was.

Using The Maps/Garmin Software / Out & Back creation issue
« on: July 11, 2019, 01:15:25 PM »
I have successfully created a trip in Basecamp from a start point to end point with several waypoints in between. I will be out six days backpacking. I have set up a folder Day 1 that has the trip going OUT (start point to end point). I created a folder for Day 6 with the exact same waypoints, only I want to reverse the trip (return trip, obviously). So, I opened the Day  6 route, chose "invert route" in the dropdown and it successfully reversed the route. The only problem is, it did the same thing in the Day 1 folder. What am I missing?

I went to gmaptool and downloaded a United States/Pacific area OSM Topo routable file. I successfully unzipped it, but when I try to import it to Garmin BaseCamp, there doe NOT seem to be an acceptable file format. I am finding a folder with a .gmap extension, and files with .mdx and .typ. BaseCamp doesn't want to recognize any of them.

I feel like I'm missing a step. Any help on this forum that someone can steer me to?? I will eventually be uploading to a Garmin etrex 20x. Thank you in advance!!
