Thanks a lot folks!!

I now have my original Nuvi 780 map and a newer and more complete map of the continental US on an SD card and they both work.

And Boyd, this time I used a card reader that is probably 2.0. It took about 10 minutes compared to a couple of hours.

Thank you,
Harry

Thanks Folks, I'm about to start on it again tonight.

I'm sorry Boyd, I misunderstood. I put the file in a sub-folder of Garmin on my computer. I will get to work on what you said after I eat.

MapSet didn't work. I don't have a .TYP file. I have a id.txt file with about a 30 digit number in it. That didn't work either.

I changed it to id.typ and it said 'The selected file is already compiled.'

I didn't put anything in that box and the convert failed.

The gmapsupp.img in on the SD card, the id.txt in on the card and the card is in the Nuvi 780. How do I get the map to work?

Okay. I'm looking into MapSetToolKit.

I'll let you know if that doesn't help. Or let me know if you already know it won't.

Using 'Device Information' on Basecamp can it shows the Nuvi and a picture of an SD card with only 440Mb memory out of 3.6Gb. So, it knows the card is there, the size of the card, and how much memory is left.

???  Maybe Basecamp is just taking a long time to read that 3Gb map file.  ???

Well, on the SD card I have a 3Gb file, gmapsupp.img and a text file with a long multi segment number consisting of letters and numbers.

The SD card is in the Nuvi 780 but it doesn't show the map. I go to Map Info on the Nuvi and it shows:

 CN North America NT 2010.30
     [1] ALL

There is no option for another map, although I don't know what that [1] ALL is.

I have read the tutorial 'How to load maps on my garmin gps' but that didn't help.

Basecamp shows the nuvi as drive M and the SD card as N. I can't find a way to make Basecamp show the map or file on N. All it says is 'User Data' and below it says 'This list is empty.'

Thanks Boyd,

I'm pretty new to this. The map is still transferring and is actually preventing me from using File Explorer right now. So, I can't see the actual name of the file. ( I have a terrible memory and can forget things within seconds.)

I had OSM create a map of the entire US. Hopefully this will work, or maybe I can use the info you gave me to make it work. Or redo it.

I tried to find what usb interface the nuvi 780 used, but didn't have any luck.

I downloaded a 2.3Gb .img map onto my computer.

I've read that I can put the .imp directly onto a SD card and the GPS will read it.

I plugged a USB cable into the 3.0 ports on the back of my computer and into my Nuvi 780. The Nuvi has a 4Gb SD card installed as drive N:.

I am transferring the .img file to the SD card in the Nuvi, but the transfer rate is about 335Kb/s. Is that the expected speed for such a transfer? Is there a faster way?

General Discussion / How much memory is available on my Quest?
« on: September 27, 2016, 03:17:21 PM »
I have a Garmin Quest that is said to have 115Mb memory installed.

I want to use this for outdoors in northern Illinois and the internal map is almost useless.

How do I find out how much memory is still available on the Quest?

Thanks Boyd,

Sorry for the delayed reply. Sleep disorder, went fishing, didn't get an email about a reply to my question.

I'll will look into this some more, but it looks like I will have more questions.

General Discussion / I need to backup Quest map to BootCamp
« on: September 24, 2016, 12:52:52 AM »
Hello folks,

I have a Garmin Quest given to me by my nephew. Accessories but no software disc.

I want to put a topo map on Quest, but want to backup the original map first.

How can I do this? I have BootCamp, (prefered) and MapSource.

Thanks,
Harry
