An SD card that large canít be read on the etrex unless you somehow get it formatted in FAT32.
I'm on a Mac, with BaseCamp Version 4.8.6, MapInstall Version 4.3.2, and MapManager Version 3.1.2.

I have the same three maps listed in MapInstall and MapManger:
  • Florida Topo v 1.60
  • OSM generic routable new (US-FL_16-11-2019) v 1.00
  • US South Atlantic OSM Topo v 1.00

The Florida Topo is composed of 30 Maps.
The OSM generic is composed of 30 Maps.
The US South Atlantic OSM Topo is composed of 134 Maps.

When connected to the GPS, MapInstall says "This device already has your latest maps fully installed."

BaseCamp sees the device, and Basecamp shows the SD card has 61.9 out of 63.8 Gigs free.

However, the Maps are not listed in BaseCamp under My Garmin Devices, Maps... Nor, can I see them on the device in order to enable them.

Can someone please tell me what I am overlooking and why the maps are not working on the new etrex 30x ?
thank you

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.
