First post.  I'm new to GPS file depot but have used Basecamp and Garmin products for years.
I have a couple of micro SD cards that I swap in and out of my GPS  (64st).  One has all of Quebec, the other the NE USA at 24k.  For all I know I could put both sets on a single card but that's how I have set it up and it works.  Being insecure about my skills, prefer not to change anything.

Now for my Q's.  I plan on driving and hiking around WY and CO Aug-Oct.  I want 2 map sets for each state.  One for hiking and another for my Drivesmart car gps.  I planned on using 4 cards one for each map set.  Make sense?

My next Q is in getting the maps from the internet into Basecamp and then into my SD cards and finally to read the maps on my devices.  I've (quickly I admit) read the tutorials but I want to make sure I have the correct sequence before I start.  So, here is how I think it will go....:

  • D-load file from GPS file depot.
    Double-click to install on my PC (it knows into which folder to install the maps I hope cuz I have no clue).
    Open Basecamp and open the map from the "maps" dropdown list.
    Plug in a micro SD card.  What's best, have the card in my device or plugged in directly to the PC's port?
    Click "send to device" and choose the entire state and let it transfer over.
    View in device to make sure it all worked.
Sorry if this is basic but my level of expertise is pretty low.
