General Discussion / Help: Garmin Basecamp
« on: February 12, 2020, 06:15:34 AM »
Help. Ok. Got ver 4.6.2 to install on my laptop (Windows 10 64 bit). Seems to work. Downloaded and tried to install ver 4.7.1. Says it installed but when I start Basecamp it asks if I want to update I tell it yes and it asks to uninstall ver 4.7.1. Tell it yes and it says successfully uninstalled then ver 4.6.2 runs. What's going on? Thanks, Jim

Thanks, I'll give it a shot at updating it. On another note I finally figured out how to get City Navigator Europe to run on one of my Nuvi 2595LM (I have several).  Jim

I've got a question about Basecamp. I had ver. 4.7.0 installed and I found out it had a problem with third party maps so I uninstalled it. Tried to install Ver 4.7.1 and it wouldn't run after the install. This is on a Windows 10 64 bit system. Was able to get Basecamp Ver 4.6.2 to install. My question is should I install Basecamp Ver 4.7.1 (update) or should one wait a while? I did update Mapinstall to Ver. 4.2.1 and it seems to do what it's suppose to do which was install Oregon Topo from this site. Jim

Took another shot yesterday at loading the maps. Used Mapsource 6 (the latest ver) they showed up on the SD card. I won't know if they are going to work for a couple of weeks. We won't be driving to Oregon before then. When we're driving in Idaho the contour lines show on the map as we're driving along and that's what I'm trying for when we visit other states. We'll see.

Thanks for the reply. I was thinking that I had gotten the Topo map from this site but I could be mistaken. Memory is the second thing to go because one can't remember the first :). Anyway I went back and looked at the SDcard (32GB) there's a folder named Map and one named Garmin. The Garmin has gmapsupp a disc image file (3,333,312KB) and Map has individually numbered disc image files. these are Idaho Topo. I'd like to install Oregon and Washington Topo maps. The ones that I downloaded and installed from here on my computer were installed with the Windows installed from this site. The Basecamp is Ver. 4.7.1. I'll try and install the maps with the SD card in the GPS. I did it with it installed in the computer before. We'll see what happens. Jim

General Discussion / Topo Maps on a Nuvi

Hi, I just joined and have a question. I downloaded my states topo map a number of years ago from the predecessor of this site and they work just fine on all my Nuvi's (2595, 2686, and 2598) they where done originally with cgpsmapper Ver 0095. The new topo maps from this site don't show up. I used the latest version of Basecamp and Mapinstall to install them on a SDcard which is where the other topo maps are installed. I have also have Mapsouce the latest version which is what I think I used to install them originally. So what do I need to do? Thanks, Jim
