Some sites like OSM let you either download a single .img file for a region (state, province, etc.) or to get the same region as many small files. I don't have a shortage of memory, and many small files seem much harder to manage, especially if I get more than a couple regions that way. I tried subfolders in the Garmin folder (using an eTrex Touch 35) to organize these regions on my MicroSD, but it doesn't seem to see a file unless it's right in the Garmin folder.

So is there any real downside for performance or anything else with using the large files instead? Or a way to better manage the smaller files so I don't end up with a thousand in the Garmin folder?

Map Making Support / Re: topo lines not showing

Did you install the map using Basecamp/MapInstall? If so, then that is likely the problem. Garmin updated these programs in May 2018 such that they no longer work properly with many (most?) of the maps on this site. Then Garmin discontinued Basecamp, so apparently this will never be fixed.

The easiest solution is to either use Garmin's older MapSource software or downgrade Basecamp/MapInstall to a older version that still works properly. See this thread: https://forums.gpsfiledepot.com/index.php?topic=4539.0
Map Making Support / topo lines not showing
« Last post by Tom Brooks on July 18, 2019, 09:05:53 PM »
I created a hiking map in Basecamp using a link from gpsfiledepot. The map is USM PAcific OSM Topo. When I install it on my Garmin Etrex20X, the trail and waypoints look fine, but there are no top lines. What am I missing?

Thanks. Those directions were confusing, but knowing that the map was actually there (not needing to import) helped. I hit the maps menu and there it was.
Using The Maps/Garmin Software / Out & Back creation issue
« Last post by Tom Brooks on July 11, 2019, 01:15:25 PM »
I have successfully created a trip in Basecamp from a start point to end point with several waypoints in between. I will be out six days backpacking. I have set up a folder Day 1 that has the trip going OUT (start point to end point). I created a folder for Day 6 with the exact same waypoints, only I want to reverse the trip (return trip, obviously). So, I opened the Day  6 route, chose "invert route" in the dropdown and it successfully reversed the route. The only problem is, it did the same thing in the Day 1 folder. What am I missing?

You can't "open" or "import" maps in Basecamp, those functions only work for user data like tracks and waypoints. See these instructions for installing the map: http://www.gmaptool.eu/en/content/installation

I went to gmaptool and downloaded a United States/Pacific area OSM Topo routable file. I successfully unzipped it, but when I try to import it to Garmin BaseCamp, there doe NOT seem to be an acceptable file format. I am finding a folder with a .gmap extension, and files with .mdx and .typ. BaseCamp doesn't want to recognize any of them.

I feel like I'm missing a step. Any help on this forum that someone can steer me to?? I will eventually be uploading to a Garmin etrex 20x. Thank you in advance!!

Newbie figured it out for himself, had to move them to the upper window first.
Using The Maps/Garmin Software / Dont see any trails on my map
« Last post by jason1507 on June 30, 2019, 06:58:51 AM »
So Ive downloaded Idaho topo and can view it in basecamp. I have also put it on my Oregon 600. Problem is I dont see any trails on the map at all.  I have also downloaded and installed my trails even though it doesnt include Idaho. What am I doing wrong?
No the Nuvi actually keeps them in alphabetical order but if you are looking for a saved location while you are moving, it will keep refreshing the list from the top as it continuously updates the travel distance. I usually end up just pulling over.
