GPSr Units / Re: Can I install the Garmin 100k TOPO to Etrex30 memory ?
« Last post by Boyd on Today at 08:42:32 AM »
The old US Topo map that was distributed on DVD was not locked and could be used as desired. But Garmin no longer offers DVD versions, and all of their downloadable and pre-loaded maps are copy protected. You must use it on the original card, it is tied to the hardware ID and won't work if you move it somewhere else unfortunately.

I also think you will run into problems with your plan to use 32gb of GPSFileDepot maps because of limits Garmin has placed on the number of map segments that can be accessed. Rather than explain it all again, see my earlier post here: https://forums.gpsfiledepot.com/index.php?topic=4355.msg23973#msg23973

GPSr Units / Can I install the Garmin 100k TOPO to Etrex30 memory ?
« Last post by 30xuser on Today at 07:29:28 AM »
Greetings  :)

I purchased an Etrex 30x bundle that came with the Garmin TOPO US 100K on a micro SD card.

I also bought a 32g micro SD card to store these files from GPSFileDepot.

I would like to use the Etrex 30x internal memory to store the TOPO 100k map,
and have the GPSFileDepot maps on the 32g SD card, so I don't have to switch
SD cards. Is that possible ?

Also, this is my first GPS  and would appreciate any tips or links that you would suggest.
Mainly planning to use this GPS for hiking, running, and geocaching. Any other free maps
besides GPSFileDepot

Thanks

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.

There is actually an install script already in existence to work with the gmap; I thought I posted it somewhere before but perhaps it deserves another look.

All that it requires (in Windows anyway) is a shortcut in Garmin's default map directory to the actual location and Basecamp will find the map.
Hmmm to that one.

Using The Maps/Garmin Software / Re: All maps on SD card not being recognized by 64s
« Last post by neothe on February 23, 2017, 04:44:09 PM »
I had a similar problem with the 64s. I could load maps on the micro sd card through BaseCamp, but the GPS unit wouldn't recognize maps on the micro sd. I reformated the micro sd to a FAT32 format instead of NFTS and that solved the problem.

Using The Maps/Garmin Software / Re: Maps Won't Transfer To SD Card

Can you explain exactly what you are doing? I don't understand what you mean by "downloading maps to basecamp".

The message about a "disk image" doesn't sound like something that basecamp would say, it sounds more like a message from the operating system. The .img extension is used for several different kinds of files. With Garmin, it's a map file. But there are other .img files that are disk images.

Iíve been thinking about getting Children GPS Tracker Wrist Watch.  What do you guys think of it?  I have no idea if this is the right thing to buy or not.
