I would like to set up my handheld with some nautical maps. I love the SE US one that I got here on gpsfiledepot, I have not seen any nautical ones.

Right now I'm using my astro 320, which is the garmin 62 only it tracks doggies. I am thinking of getting the new garmin 64. The power button is getting stubborn on my astro and I've been lusting after the 64 for some time now. My other option is the garmin stiker with fishfinder.

We have a plotter on the boat but it's used and we are still working out the bugs, plus learning how to use it. I would like a handheld as a backup, and because I like them and I'm used to them.

It's my understanding that there are different garmin maps depending on which garmin unit you have, there are some available for the handhelds. This is fine, it's just to suppliment the chart plotter/fish finder.

Anybody have any suggestions or ideas? Thanks in advance.

Thanks all, up and working great now.  I did have the full set of Basecamp installed with Garmin map installer.

All it took was to unzip the file, then open it with Garmin map installer.

I compared it to an event I did today with recording the track on Gaia, and then imported the track GPX in and overlaid it on the northeast OSM too with trails, and it was incredibly accurate.
Thanks again-

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:

Go get the "Map" from this site.  As Boyd said Nuvi's will not accept tracks, you can copy them onto a Nuvi but there is not Track Manager.  Plenty of people including my self have put the "Map" on Nuvi's.

You should not need to "open" or "import" a map into Basecamp. When you double-click the .gmapi or .gmap file, Garmin MapManager should open and ask if you want to install the map. If this didn't happen, then you probably have not fully installed the Basecamp package.

Look in your Applications folder - is there a program called Garmin MapManager.app? If not, then download/install Basecamp from here: http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=4449

If it still does not work, then there is probably some issue with the map you are trying to install.

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.

I download the file to my computer then try to open the file with either Basecamp or Garmin Map install.  Each gives the same message that it cannot be installed. I have then opened Basecamp and tried to import the file and get the same message each time.

I have followed the GPSfile depot step by step and get the same thing,

Any suggestions on how to get this to wok? Thanks!

It appears that these are "tracks" and not a map, which is why you can't install it. You cannot load tracks on any of the Nuvi series. The Nuvi can display a track that it has recorded itself, but it cannot display a track from another source. You can copy that file to the Nuvi, but it will just be ignored.

So, unfortunately, your Nuvi is not compatible with that file.  :(

I have downloaded the WV ATV Trails 2016 .gpx. I have base camp installed but the map does not show up when I choose install maps.

Thanks for any advice.

If that's the case, why does the same map selection work fine when I use Mapsource for the maps transfer?

What is the best Garmin to purchase for the West Virginia Outlaw Trails? Will I have to download the BaseCamp and the MapSource from my computer?
