Yeah, I have tried to zoom way in to less than a mile but every time I do a search it looks for the 2 mile radius, then on to 250 mi and then out to 500 mi. WTF? I think I copied some of my TOPO maps over to it by mistake and that screws things up because those have no details, just trails and water and elevations. If I can figure out how to remove those and get back to the base map I may be OK...I think?

I think it's the normal base map that came with the unit but I don't know for sure. I did hook it up and go to the Garmin site and it recognizes the unit and says the map is up to date...?

I have a new to me Street Pilot that I can't seem to find any local points of interest on. I got this unit from a friend who lived in a different state so maybe I just need to reset it for local stuff. The unit does know where it is and locks on to sats. but I can't see any fuel stations, restaurants or anything but streets. Any thoughts for a NOOB? I have never used one of these before other than my hikers GPS which does things like TOPOs. This whole traveling by GPS could be pretty cool and useful as I'm an old school thinker and still use paper maps...
