General Discussion / Re: Utah topos
October 05, 2021, 11:41:29 AM
Thanks for the tip. I was able to load the Desert southwest map to my windows computer, and it does cover the area of interest.   

For some reason, I had trouble downloading the map to my memory card for my etrex20, but the second time around it worked.  It asked me to choose which rectangles I wanted to download.  On my etrex it is easy to see where the rectangles end, as the detailed topo data disappears.

General Discussion / Utah topos

I downloaded the Utah topo 2011 from the site, and found that it has detailed topo maps for some parts of Utah, but not of others.   I have a trip coming up to NE Utah, specifically south of Vernal, and as far as I can see it has no info for that area.  As I zoom in, I get nothing but the general US basemap.

I do not want to spend $99 for a Utah map, but maybe that is what I need to do.  Ideas?

Mapsource also does not show either map that I downloaded.   

It seems like I have lost maps that I previously had access to on Basecamp.  Out of the last three maps that I have tried to install, Mytrails is the only one that I can see.......

Mapsource on my old Windows 7 computer works fine.   I will uninstall Basecamp and Mapsource from my Windows 10 computer.  Maybe someday I will try again on Windows 10.......


This is the second time that I have had this problem.   I download the map, click to install it by running the .exe file,  go through the steps, click on "Finish."  But when I go to Basecamp, it does not see the map.  I click on maps, and the same list of maps appears.    My earlier problem was with the Nebraska topo, tonight with the Utah topo....  I assume that my problem is not with the map, but with Basecamp, but really I have no idea.

I was told that I did not need to do anything other than run the .exe file.  No need to import the map, for example, or move files to a particular place.


No luck so far.   As you said, the tutorial does not match up very well with the current Basecamp.

When I clicked on "Maps" in the top line, it did not show the Nebraska Map.   I tried "Install Maps", but it said "No unlocked maps were found for this device."  Was I supposed to see the Nebraska map there?

I had tried earlier clicking on "File" and then "Import into my collection."  I found the directory, but it said "No items match your search."   C:\Program files (x86)\netopo11 is the directory.

I am going around in circles trying to load the Nebraska topo onto my computer and Etrex20x.  I have Windows 10 with Basecamp. I downloaded the Nebraska topo as an exe file, and when executed it created the directory netopo11.   When I looked in the directory of netopo11 on my computer, there are a series of disk images.   I believe when I have loaded maps in the past, I got a single .img file.   Basecamp does not seem to know what to do with disk images, so I have not succeeded in getting the Nebraska topo onto Basecamp.   

Please tell me what I am missing.  Thanks.
