GPSr Units / Garmin Watches
« Last post by gatoruss on November 13, 2019, 06:35:29 AM »
If Garmin sells additional maps that can be loaded on a particular Garmin watch (such as, for example, the Forerunner 945), and the watch is compatible with Basecamp, will I be able to load OSM maps and maps from GPSFileDepot onto that watch?
Works with my maps. Good times.
Search for a cities or whatever there.
Sorry to ask what is probably a pretty basic question, but totally new to GPS devices. Have an etrex 30x and have loaded a map of the bottom end of South America. It shows in the internal map directory, is enabled and all other maps disabled. I would like to check the map before heading off.
I live in the UK and all I can see is a blank screen and my current location marker. No matter what i do, i cannot get the screen to show the map. I have zoomed out to the max (800km), but scrolling around is like searching in space, and no idea how to get the screen to where I need it.
Grateful for any help
Wow! Garmin actually updated Basecamp? If so... good for them! Took them a long time, but at least they fiinally fixed this major problem.
It seems, the new version 4.2.1 MapInstall (October 30, 2019) in Basecamp  4.7.1 works correctly.

Thanks, Boyd.  I'm using a Mac, so I'll follow your suggestion.

There's no simple way to permanently install this kind of map on your computer. However, you can simply copy the entire contents of your Montana to a USB flash drive. Basecamp will treat that flash drive exactly the same as the real GPS. Or if you computer has an SD card slot, you could copy the Montana to that.

Now, on the Macintosh you could use Disk Utility to make a disk image of the Montana and that would also be treated exactly the same as the real Montana. Windows does not have a comparable program, but you could use a RAM Disk program.

Have a look at this: http://www.javawa.nl/virtualdevice.html

The same site also has some other excellent free software that every Garmin owner should have - specifically Javawa Device Manager and GMTK.

I recently successful loaded the Montana topo map from this site onto my Garmin gps device.  I access this map through Garmin Basecamp when my gps device is connected to my computer.  I wonder if there is a way to arrange to access the Montana map on my computer when the Garmin gps device is not connected to the computer --- the same way I access the topo maps from this site for states like Wyoming, Utah, Alaska, and Idaho.  That is, access the maps using Basecamp (or some other means) when the gps device is not connected to the computer.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
Using The Maps/Garmin Software / Re: Installing topo maps on a Garmin 60CSX

It's pretty hard to help when you don't say *how* you tried installing the maps. ;)

But if you're using the Windows version of Basecamp/MapInstall, then that is the problem. It doesn't work anymore with most of the maps on this site. And Garmin has discontinued Basecamp, so this will never be fixed.

See this thread for possible work-arounds/solutions: https://forums.gpsfiledepot.com/index.php?topic=4539.0

But, to cut to the chase.... use Mapsource instead of Basecamp with your 60csx. That is the software it was designed to use, and it still works.
