Using The Maps/Garmin Software / map details
November 04, 2008, 04:11:54 PM
I just discovered GPSFileDepot and have downloaded the US map. From it I selected a small portion around my home. My question is this. The map, when viewed on my computer monitor, shows essentially all the roads in my neighborhood, but when I have selected the portion I want and downloaded it to my GPSr many of the roads do not show up on the GPSr display at any resolution. Why is that? They are not new roads in any sense of the word since this whole area/neighborhood has been around for over 30 years. 
The map, where the roads do show, seems to be much more accurate than the Garmin topo map, but if key roads are totally missing accuracy is not the issue.
Thanks for any input. Perhaps I have done something wrong and the road data has been lost in the process.
