The " disk image is corrupted " message is bogus and doesn't mean anything. Garmin maps have an .img file extension, and (unfortunately) the .img extension is also used for disk images. The computer doesn't find the right kind of data and therefore assumes you have a courrpted disk image. But in fact you have a valid map file.

What maps did you download? How did you install them? Most of the maps on this site include an installer that will put the maps into Basecamp on your computer. You should then be able to view them on the computer and make sure everything looks OK. You then use MapInstall to send the map to your GPS. Did you do all of this?

There is an older version of Basecamp/MapInstall that doesn't work correctly. Make sure you have installed the newest versions.

Another possible problem is the way the SD card is formatted. It must be formatted as FAT-32 and this may not be possible with cards larger than 32gb (IIRC). If the card is not formatted FAT-32, then everything will appear to work on the computer, but the GPS will not recognize the maps.

I downloaded several Topo maps to install on my etrex 30x, I have tried several times but each time it says maps were loaded they show up on sad card but not on the unit.  When I click on them on sd card it says the disk image is corrupted.  Any fix for this.  The maps do open in base camp.

Thanks for the offer Bob, much appreciated.

I was able to get the WVATV 2016 file to display this morning.
It seems the app was looking for maps in the wrong folder.  I had to change the Maps settings in the app to look in the folder oruxmaps/mapfiles/....

After doing that I hit "switch map". Checked offline maps, and the folder was still empty.
Hit refresh a few times.
Still empty.
Re-started the phone.
Now I have 2 maps in the offline folder.  World and WVATV 2016.

Odd thing is, when I view the folder thru file manager, there a few maps in there.  Orux is only showing me 2.

Now that its working somewhat, I will try to figure out what I can.  If I get stumped I will reach out.  Thanks again!

I am having the same problem.  If you get a solution please post on here.  I have sent emails to Orux and asked for help.  I will post a solution if I get one.    I am about to give up and just go with Back Country Nav.   I got the maps to come up in Back Country.

  Bob I tried to down load the file from media fire and it's not there now.  The xml file.  And then I get a run around with spam and survey's and other BS.

Might have something to do with the Windows registry. Have you seen this post from 93ToyTruck?


As for "whats going on"... Basecamp is a mess and Garmin got tired of trying to fix it, so they have abandoned it and moved on to a web-based program that supports their new, premium devices.  ;)

Help. Ok. Got ver 4.6.2 to install on my laptop (Windows 10 64 bit). Seems to work. Downloaded and tried to install ver 4.7.1. Says it installed but when I start Basecamp it asks if I want to update I tell it yes and it asks to uninstall ver 4.7.1. Tell it yes and it says successfully uninstalled then ver 4.6.2 runs. What's going on? Thanks, Jim

Thanks, I'll give it a shot at updating it. On another note I finally figured out how to get City Navigator Europe to run on one of my Nuvi 2595LM (I have several).  Jim

Not sure what would be gained by waiting. Basecamp has been discontinued and Garmin isn't going to be improving it. We were all surprised when they actually fixed the map installation bug. But it took a year and a half before they did that.
