Glad it's working out. If you have any other questions feel free to post.

Enjoy Philmont.

Is this the same with POI's and other features or just the streets?

One way you could handle this is to convert the geocoded coordinate pairs to a point shapefile with the free GIS MapWindow:


Then use the county polygon shapefile, the coordinate point shapefile, and MapWindow's Identity of Shapes With Polygon function to determine which county each point lay in:

Even better!

If you mean that it doesn't show up for selection in the gps then it sounds like a card issue. Make sure the card is fully seated into the gps. If this doesn't help, try a different card.

Before opening the CN DVD they send you, I would confirm the info on their website that says the unit doesn't do turn-by-turns. If that is really the case,you can sell off the unused DVD they send you and use one of the TOPO's from this site or the Ibycus USA Road Maps for free.

I think that if you want to use those maps you would be better off with a Vista HCx, I don't think you are going to able to cut up the maps, and even if you could there would be little point.

Vista H specs:
Built-in memory:      24 MB
Automatic routing (turn by turn routing on roads):      no

What version of SW/FW do you have installed in your GPSMap 60Csx?

I would think that you need to run the .exe file to install the mapset into MapSource to be able to use it. That's the most common use.

The GPSMAP60 CSx is the Vista HCx's big brother, and has the compass and altimeter. It also has a couple of other features missing from the Vista HCx that may or may not be of use, such as an RS-232 serial I/O port and and input for an external antenna.

Between the two listed, the Vista HCx is lighter, has a compass and altimeter, and gets better life on a set of dry cells. If you are looking to lighten your load by a couple of ounces, it's the way to go.

You can also check for tracks such as the following:

They have more for the area

According to this report, they are the same with different maps:

! would think the included TOPO maps are at 100K.

And also you would want the vector overlay to be set as a transparent mapset. The Vista HCx wasn't designed with this in mind and has a processor to match.
