GPSr Units / Re: txfr topo maps from basecamp to 62s

I determined that the map/file remnant is on the sd card and not internal GPS memory. I tried reading the SD Card  ( a preloaded card I purchased with garmin's topo on it) on my PC,  but all it showed was the ID file, not even the Garmin topo file or the "remnant". Im guessing the card is "read protected" (if there is such a thing) because they dont want their topo copied. I can use my GPS with that remnant disabled (on the menu) so this problem is not a showstopper. Just wanted to maximize the space on the card for future map downloads. I'm hesitant to mess around with the data on this card lest  I corrupt the installed Garmin topo which I paid good bucks for. Thanks.

One last cleanup issue.
I have what appears to be a remnant of/ or the entire NE Part 1  topo map) showing as an installed map on my GPS SD card. I cannot delete this map using the normal method of deleting unwanted maps. This probably occurred when i was trying to install these maps using Mapinstall 4.2.0 . (I was able to install and delete Parts 1,2, and 3 after I "fixed" the Basecamp/ Mapinstall issue. ) I look at my Garmin folder now on my PC and cant identify the file that if I delete may remove whatever the heck I have on my SD card. Any ideas? Thanks.

success!! Uninstalled the "bad" versions of MapInstall and Basecamp, and installed the backlevel ones (also deleted the directory entry per the link instructions). Wrote the maps to the Garmin SD card and all is good. Thank you for your timely help.

Thanks for your reply. I meant SD card, not SIM, my bad. I also use Basecamp to manage maps, etc. I successfully uploaded GPS File Depot Northeast Topos Parts 1,2 and 3 to Basecamp then to a blank (16gig) SD card in my GPS.  Thought all was good but when I looked at my installed maps on my GPS it appears that just Part 1 loaded. (and Im able to enable it) . Comment lease?. Thanks

I want to make sure i do not overwrite an existing topo map on my Garmin 62s SIM card with the topo(s)  i just downloaded from gps file depot to Basecamp. Can I install the new map from Basecamp into the GPS memory  or will it write to the sim card  without overwriting it? Thanks in advance.
