Nevermind...
I just ran the install again (after getting basecamp setup) and it worked.

But, the My Trails map is still not working.
Looks the same in basecamp and mapsource.

Using The Maps/Garmin Software / Newest Version of MapSource
« on: March 01, 2019, 09:45:21 PM »
I refreshed my pc.
Now I am working on getting everything reinstalled.
I ran into the BaseCamp issue with maps installed, but not showing.
I created c:\programfiles(x86)\Garmin\MAPS to put everything in one place.
The MY TRAILS file from jbensman fixed the topo install issue.
Everything shows great now, except for the MyTrails file... All I see are random black dots.  No clue why this is not working.

Anyway, for track management, I always liked MapSource better than BaseCamp.
I got the newest file from the Garmin site, but it says that it is an update file and gives an error that no previous version is found.

My questions are :

What is the newest and best (hopefully the same) version of MapSource?

Do I need to find an older version, install it, then update it?

I found the link with all the old versions of BaseCamp and MapSource, but I hate installing and reinstalling software over and over if I can help it.

Thank you in advance guys/gals!!

GPSr Units / Re: Nuvi for offroad use
« on: December 10, 2012, 09:20:19 AM »
Wow.

Everyone... thank you for all the info!!!
BobT.. as usual.. you are the man!!
I will be sending out an email soon.  I actually worked on my track file recently.. not that you need it.  hahahaha 
1/2 of it is your tracks anyway.

I am actually not looking to replace my 60Csx.  I was only going to use the Nuvi for viewing while riding.  I was actually going to run both the 60 and the Nuvi at the same time.

I want a Montana.. but 400+ is a lot for me to spend!

I used to want an Oregon, but back when it was 400+, the screen size was not big enough for me to justify getting it.

I don't know a lot about the Montana, but it sounds like the way to go.

I will look into it and them make a choice.  I guess I could always sell the 60.
I love that thing though.

GPSr Units / Nuvi for offroad use
« on: December 08, 2012, 05:41:50 PM »
Guys... (and gals)

I currently use a 60Csx on my ATV.
A couple of guys I know of use a Nuvi as well on the ATV for the screen size.

They are able to use topo apparently.

What Nuvi model will work best with topo?  I want one that can take track points as well.
I called Garmin to learn more, but they were not a big help.

Does anyone know what would work best?
The waterproof thing isn't a problem.  I would probably get a RAM box for it to keep it safe.

Thanks,
Adrian

he probably should be able to use them.

Thanks.
I am not sure how to help him though.

GPSr Units / Question for anyone familiar with the Magellan Explorist 500
« on: January 06, 2012, 10:34:58 AM »
Hey guys and gals,

A friend of mine just purchases a Magellan (used) from another friend.
I know that the track files from the Magellan can be used with the Garmin.  I know, because the first owner has sent me files to add to the "big file".

My question though, is for the second friend. 
First, I know he cannot use the maps that I create.  (I use gpx2img, and can manually make them the hard way too.)  But, is there a way for him to load my track files to the Magellan?  I can send him the gpx file, but I don't know if that is possible.  I do know that apparently the gpx file works with Delorme. 

Thanks,
Adrian

GPSr Units / GPSMap vs. Oregon
« on: October 05, 2010, 01:39:10 PM »
I was surprised today when I was comparing the GPSMap62 to the Oregon units today.

I own a 60CSx.  I have been thinking about trying to add another GPS since I like mine so much.  I figured I would like a "better" unit even more, but I think I might be wrong.
First, the 62 only seems to have a better screen.  I don't see the advantage for me getting that one.
Then I looked at the Oregon.  The screen doesn't seem to be much bigger than the screen on the 60Csx!!??!!
I will be better off getting an automotive unit or the Nuvi 500 and loading topo maps to it and using it!!
What is the deal here??  I thought the Oregon had a much bigger screen?  I have never held one, so i guess that is why I didn't know it.

Joel,

I will try it out tonight.

I hadn't plugged the GPS up to the PC, so I didn't try that already.

Can you load GpsFileDepot maps onto your gpsr with basecamp?  I don't see a select map function.

GPSr Units / 60CSx 12v Auto power
« on: April 21, 2010, 07:19:22 AM »
Will powering the 60CSx off of an iGo 12v cig. adapter in the car work ok with the mini USB tip?
I just wanted to check before trying it out.
I don't want to have to buy another GPSr.

Thanks,
Adrian
