This worked for me on a different Garmin GPS so it might work for you on the Montana.

Hey! I got it. :) I had both My Trails and mitopo11 on my etrex30 and copied those two files to my laptop then to my GPSMAP 78SC (Garmin directory). I then disabled all maps on the device excep My Trails and mitopo11. I opened a track and WOW there it was on mitopo11!  ;D :)
So...if you have acess to copies of the two files already on a garmin device, you can copy and paste into your GPSMAP 78SC.

GPSr Units / MITOPO maps on GPSMAP 78sc
« on: July 08, 2018, 03:25:37 PM »
I have a new Garmin GPSMPS 78sc. I have downloaded both MITOPO11 and MyTrails install files and installed them on my laptop and through Basecamp to the unit. When I went to setup - Map Information Select Map - I found and enabled both My Trails and mitopo11. My only choices are "Enable or Disable".  When I open a track I see a map with the track, however the map is not mitopo11. When zoom to 12mile I see township lines and major roads. Zooming, as close as 200', in further I see a solid gray background and my track. with no elevation lines, etc. It is obviously not a topo map. I went to Map Information Select Map and disabled all maps except mitopo11 and My Trails. Track shows same results as before. I did read an earlier post and followed those directions, set details to normal, ect.
Please suggest a solution. :)
PS Boyd, With your help a year ago, my etrex30 works great with mitopo11 and My Trails.

OK! When I clicked on the "red insructions" it actually took me to a Minnesota map??? I must have clicked on something wrong there!
HOLY COW! It worked like a charm. You are sooo good. Thanks for your patience with me and my fumblings.
Happy GPS user now. :-)
Thank You Boyd.

Thanks for the quick reply! I thought I was following the tutorial directions when I used MapsetToolkit...anyway, I do not see the mitopo map in BaseCamp map drop down menu. I followed the directions (in red) and installed the suggested Minnesota map. What directory should that be installed in? I tried the Program files (x86) Garmin directory, Program files(x86) Garmin/Basecamp/maps, and my microSD card Garmin directory. When I opened BaseCamp and clicked the Map drop down only the global map was listed. I must be missing something or not doing something properly???

General Discussion / Installing mitopo11 via MapsetToolkit
« on: April 20, 2017, 04:33:30 AM »
I downloaded mitopo11 and ran the exe file. This produced the set of img files etc. Used MapsetToolkit per the tutorial. It gave me the "compiled" message.:-) However, the compiled file did not show in the Mapset installed window, couldn't find the compiled file, and could not open map in Basecamp. I tried several times using various registry names and map directories, including Garmin, Basecamp, and the microSD with Garmin as folder. Any suggestions. :-\
