Everyone thanks for the comments.  When you say root directory do you mean the window that opens up and shows all the folders on the device?  When I plug my unit in and open the drive (Garmin Oregon) to view files, here is what I have:

Documents Folder, Garmin Folder, Wherigo Folder, .ColumeIcon.icns, autorun.inf.

Under the Garmin Folder there is:

BirdsEye, CustomMaps, CustomSymbols, ExtData, Filters, GPX, JPEG, Profiles, RemoteSW, and Text Folders, .Position.gpx, fs_image.ver, GarminDevice.xml, Garmintriangletem.ioc, gmapbmap.img, gmapbmap.sum, gmapsupp.img, gmapptz.img, startup.txt, system.xml.

I have tried to load the 24k topo and the WV trail map downloaded from here, but my Oregon only takes on or the other.  We want to see the WV ATV trails overlayed on the 24k topo.  How do we make this happen?  Thanks!

What brand GMRS radios do you use?

Boyd, BobT, eaparks,

Thanks for all your input.  Looks like the Montana or similar is in and we will get seperate radios to chat.  I may have jumped the gun, but downloaded Garmin BaseCamp and the trails we are going to ride in WV.  The trail map is great, but is on a white screen.  When uploaded to the GPS will it look the same as on basecamp or will it be overlayed on the topo or satelite imagery?  Is there any way to overlay the trail map onto the topo on BaseCamp?

Can't thank you enough!

Thanks,  the main reason I was looking ryno was most of the folks we meet up with have them and even if the radio doesn't work, we should be able to see them on the gps screen.  At least that is what the advertisement says.

Since I am completely new to gps, when I upload maps from here do they go to the built in memory?  Have you had any issues with the unit losing what you have uploaded?  Does the trails on the downloaded maps stay in the background even while tracking our current path (breadcrumbs, I think)?

Hello all,

I am new to ATVing and spend most of my time with friends in NC and traveling to WV.  I need to purchase a gps for an upcoming trip and would like feedback on the garmin ryno vs Montana and how easy it is to upload and use the hatfield and McCoy maps available on this site.  Not very technologically savvy so any help will be useful.  We also want to use which ever device suggested to map our trials in nc.
