Well, my plan worked almost as expected.
I didn't have to delete the existing AZ Topo first because, as expected, the new data overwrote it.
Also, MapSource couldn't "see" the micro SD card in my GPS unit (which is where I wanted the new maps to reside), so I took the card out of the unit, inserted it into a card reader, then MapSource recognized it and transferred the map data to it.

So I'm now "good to go".
Thanks again for your help!

Ok, here's my plan.
- I have MapSource on a different PC, not connected to the 'net
- I take this file aztopo_v3_install-1.exe and loaded to that PC and run it
- The map data will then be available in MapSource, same as it was available in BaseCamp
- I use MapSource to transfer AZ Topo to my GPSmap 76CSx

I assume I'll need to delete the existing AZ Topo (the one that won't show the detail) from the unit first.

Does that plan sound logical?
Thanks for your help!
OK, thanks Boyd.
Is it just the maps from GPSFileDepot that won't display detail?
I have a set of CDs of "MapSource United States TOPO" but I was hoping to just use the GPSFileDepot Arizona Topo map, as that's the only area I'm really interested in.

I guess I could try to load my CDs into BaseCamp if that's an option, and then transfer AZ to my unit IF they will display detail there.

Brand new here and obviously don't know what I'm doing.
- I have a Garmin GPSmap 76CSx.
- From this site, I downloaded the Arizona Topo map, and installed it on the device through BaseCamp, using the excellent tutorials here.
- From the "Setup map" "Information" page, I turned off all maps except "Arizona Topo 2, Arizona Topo, Sep 2018". (box is show WITH a check mark).
- On the Setup > Map > Max Zoom page, all are shown as "AUTO"
- The Setup > Map > Detail is set to "Most"

When I go to the Map page, I can zoom in to see the Arizona data OK, but no matter what zoom level I'm at, I never see the contour line details, which are readily apparent in the BaseCamp display.
