Now in the past, I think Garmin's software would apply elevations from wherever your track/route crossed an elevation contour on a regular topo map. Not sure if that system is still supported on their newer software and devices.
It still works in BaseCamp.

The number of objects for GPSMapEdit is limited by available memory, which is about 2GB for 32-bit executable. I think it is still more than could be contained in a single img tile.

Does your layers contain specific object types? Like for example one layer with parcels and second layer with buildings, where you want buildings to be drawn over parcels?

In this case, loading shp layers into GPSMapEdit merges all data into single layer. You have no direct control, which objects are drawn on top. To make your map look correct in GPS, you should design a TYP file, which contains graphics properties of objects including draw order for different area types.

What do you expect by these actions?

There is no layers in Garmin's map, the closest thing would be levels, which are kind of predefined resolution or simplification of a map. You can insert, delete or edit level's properties in menu File -> Map Properties -> Levels.

NOAA charts are free to download:

I'm thinking about converting then to Garmin maps. IMHO license allows for converting and redistribution, but I'm not sure if I could waive all liability, even with disclaimer, that they aren't intended as primary means of navigation. Any advice?

I am having issues downloading OSM too routable for the northeast into Basecamp. I am using Basecamp 4.6.3 & Mac OS 10.12.5.
Could it be USA Northeast OSM Topo Routable? In this case downloaded file is an archive compressed by 7-zip. You need to unpack it first. Try to use keka for unpacking:

I tried to load 2.76mb of data on a 2gb and it told me I couldn't as there wasn't enough room for the maps.
That kind of message usually suggested some error in maps installed on PC.

Do you mean this map: https://www.gpsfiledepot.com/maps/view/239/ ?
This map isn't compatible with 60CSx, so your problem is connected with some other map in GPS, but I can't guess which.

You can try to change all labels to upper case in the real map from your 60CSx with GMapTool:

Actually this won't work for the map from the link above, since it is a raster map, where all labels are a part of a jpg picture.

And I suggest to try my map of Hawaii:

I created an .mp file which has shown routes on GPSMapedit, then I convert it into .img file using the same program
GPSMapEdit is an editor only, it doesn't compile maps. It is able to invoke cGPSmapper for compilation but if you are using cGPSmapper Free, then it doesn't support routing. Maybe try mkgmap.

My goal was to not have to depend on cell signals needed for my smart phone GPS
You move in opposite direction then I. I prefer to drop Garmin and use a phone ;)

Garmin City Navigator maps are based mostly on data provided by Here (previously called Navetq). You can get the same maps on your phone for off-line navigation, it comes directly form Here. Program is called Here WeGo and is available for Android, iPhone and Windwos. While not so sophisticated navigation like a nuvi, it should be comparable to City Navigator on Montana. Did I say it is free?

On Android I tend to use OsmAnd, which is a navigation program using OpenStreetMap data. Navigation is a bit crude but I like it and I like OSM idea.

Try menu Maps -> Install Maps

Probably your nuvi doesn't support 3-rd party maps.

Yes I definitely can... but can everyone else (or are you saying build it into the installer)?
I offer a batch for installing my maps on Windows. It is included in archive with the map. When executed, batch creates a proper link to gmap.

You can put maps on other drive and use symbolic links, look for info about mklink command.

For me, the main advantage for gmap format is that it works on Mac. And installation process is as easy/complicated as on Windows. In both cases it needs manual unpacking. Is there any better way to support both system with single installer?
