I am new at this. Have a Garmin 62S. I have downloaded and installed, uninstalled, reinstalled the Western Land Ownership map at least 3 times and each time I see it as an available map on the map applications (Mapsource and Basecamp) but all it displays when selected is a pinkish window with a few black dots on it, no matter what the scale. When you cursor over the dots they say Unknown or Map Created by.... That's all I get. Using Mapsource 6.16.3 which should be compatible. Any ideas? Other maps (like Yosemite Topo and California Topo display fine).
This is all new to me.... new 62S, new to creating and downloading maps, new to the forum. I figured out where to find free topo and routable street maps. I downloaded a topo map from GPSFileDepot and got it onto the 62S. I can select it and see it, but there are no topo lines on it (the garmin topo shading option is set to OFF or DO NOT SHOW). I was able to create and download a routable street map from garmin.openstreetmap.  I sent it to the device. I can see it and select it, but there are no streets or roads displayed no matter what the zoom level. I can go to openstreetmap where I created it and zoom to street level there, but cannot on the device once the map is loaded. Feeling pretty ignorant. I can't find any detail option on the 62S menus that might apply. What is it that I don't know? I am using MAPSOURCE in both cases. Have not tried using BASECAMP.

I had a similar issue the first time I created and sent a map to my new (pre-owned) Garmin 62S when everything was a "first" and cunfusing (still is). I found that I had to disable maps that were enabled by the previous owner, then enable only my map. The new map then showed up.  :)
