Using The Maps/Garmin Software / How to chang img file name
« on: November 09, 2011, 12:10:59 PM »
I am having the often reported problem of trying to load two maps on a Garmin.  (Ortopo and TopoIdaho both from this site).  When I load one, I appear to overwrite the other.  I am dealing with an Astro 320 which is a new unit released this summer, so I believe it probably has the most current software.  I am using Basecamp on a 32bit PC.  I have reviewed the forum discussions and I would like to deal with the problem so I can use either map on the GPS without opening both.
 As I understand it, I need to change the file name on at least one map from gmapsup.img to something else (such as oretopo.img.  I believe it is the file name on the 320, and not the name of the file on my computer that I need to change(?)  How do I find the file name on the gps unit?  Look somewhere using Basecamp while the unit is connected to the PC?  I have tried the various possiblities I can see and cannot seem to get to it.  (If it is the name of the file stored in my computer how do I find it there?)  The install wizard does not seem to give me a choice to change the name before I install a map and I cannot find the img file name on the GPS unit or a way to change it if I did.

« on: Today at 06:45:45 AM »QuoteModifyRemoveThanks to the person(s) who put together the Idaho and Oregon topo maps recommended by this site.  They are great!!  I am using Basecamp and they loaded with no problems.

One issue with the Oregon topo.  The countour lines are not readable on my desktop.  This is sort of an issue with the Idaho topo, but on the Idaho topo the countour lines  are weak but readable.  One the Oregon map I can see that the countour lines are there, but they are not usable.  However when I load the Oregon topo to my Garmin Astro 320, they are readily visible.  Anything I can do?
