Using The Maps/Garmin Software / Re: Fail installing GPSFileDepot maps

Well this is all very odd. I repeated my attempt to install a map to the SD card in a reader/writer and it succeeded. Seems like I need to do everything twice for it to stick. Regardless, good end result, thanks for your help!

My efforts to install 3 GPSFileDepot maps directly to the 32gb micro SD card in a reader/writer had largely failed, except for 1 map which showed up in Map Setup with the card in the GPSr (still not sure it actually changed the displayed map when enabled).

This morning I connected the GRSr with the micro SD card installed and then tried to install one of the maps to the internal GPSr memory. This succeeded. Is this the process for installing maps? And if so, what good is the SD card?

OK, I loaded 3 maps on the micro SD card. One is now visible to the 64sx and can be enabled. The other two are AWOL.

No idea why, but BaseCamp just started seeing the maps, and succeeded in transferring to the micro SD card. However, with the card installed in the 64sx, Map Setup shows no additional maps...?

Sorry to be such a newb, I'm migrating to Garmin from a DeLorme PN40 which is a totally different animal. Thanks for any suggestions.

Using The Maps/Garmin Software / Fail installing GPSFileDepot maps

So lots of frustration trying to install a map from GPSFileDepot. I've followed the tutorials to the letter, but when MapInstall opens from BaseCamp there are no maps shown. I am using a new 32GB microSD card in a reader/writer on a USB-C port, Win10 machine.

The map install suggests installation to C:\Program Files. Do they need to be installed elsewhere? Trying to open a map directly into BaseCamp isn't working either. When I point Basecamp to the folder where the installed files reside, it sees nothing.

The micro SD card was initially installed in my GPSmap 64SX, and BaseCamp accurately showed 2 drives, one SD card and one GPSmap 64. When the map install failed, I reformatted the SD card to see if that would help - it didn't.

Thoughts are welcome!
