I'm resurrecting this thread because I'd like to be able to do the same thing and am wondering if anyone has had success.  I have a Garmin Echomap unit on which I'd like to put topo maps such as this one:

gpsfiledepot.com/maps/view/150/ 

I have this topo map installed on my Oregon 450 via MapSource / Basecamp and it works fine.  I've installed Garmin Homeport to work with my Echomap and that software recognizes the topo map and even allows me to send the map to the SD card for the device, where it creates a .img file.  However, when I load the SD card into the Echomap unit it says that the map format is not supported.  Based on the last post from popej, it looks like a Garmin copyright might be required inside the img file.  Is there a way to edit the img to get it working?  Any advice would be great.

Thanks,


Andy
