Hey, I have a couple of questions.  First, in Mapsource, there are many more waypoint symbols than what appear on my Garmin unit.  If I choose one of the symbols in Mapsource, and then try to load that waypoint to the unit, the symbol on the unit reverts back to standard symbol (blue flag).  How can I load some of those other Mapsource icons onto the unit?  I have a Vista HcX which has slots for 24 custom symbols.  I tried following directions on the "FreeGeographyTools" website for this process, but I could not find the .bmp for any of the Mapsource waypoint icons anywhere on my computer...  I'm not talented enough to create my own...

Also, does anyone have the CA Topo loaded on their Vista HcX?  I tried putting the gmapsupp img file on a blank micro SD card and it does not appear on the unit, even though it is in the garmin folder on the card. 

Is there a way to use that map in conjunction with other maps?  I can't load it to Mapsource using Map set Toolkit because my POS computer can't compile that much data.  It keeps blowing up every time I try (not enough memory).  What I'd like to do is be able to chop up the CA topo into segments, but I can't even open the img file alone because it is too big (POS computer again...).
