GPSr Units / Re: Topo Maps on Nuvi 295W

That was it.  I had read the manual before but could never find map info.  So after you go to Settings/Navigation/ you have to press the more info icon under the go back icon on the right side of the screen.  The top choice of that menu is map info and then you select the map that you want.  I've been looking for that for 6 months.

Thanks for your help I truly appreciate it.  The topo map was already there so I'm all set.

Thank you for the reply.

That's the problem is that I can't find the my maps or anything to change maps.  The 295W has a settings selection and tools selection.  Tools contains Where Am I?, Calc, Clock, and things like that.  Settings has System, Audio, Navigation, Apps, and Display.  I've gone into each but can't find something to change the map.

I'll try putting it in the correct directory and maybe then I'll get the choice.

Thanks again.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 295W and I would like to put some topo maps on it.  I believe I have the software downloaded correctly, I select the regions of interest and I download it to the 295W.  I can even see it in memory when I read it as a virtual drive.

What I can't seem to find is where to select the map.  I believe it's possible, but I am missing something.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
