I have a oregon 450 and want to send washington topo , city nav, and NW trails maps to it. I had looaded all these on my old unit no problem. But now the NW trails won't allow me to map select all of washington.

I tried going back to map source 6.13 and I still can't get all of washington nw trails selected to download. Any hints here on what I can do?

I searched for a older version of Northwest trails and couldn't find one . I kept getting referred bak to version 1.57 which is the one that gave me trouble. Anyone have a link to a older version?

You should be fine if you go back to the previous release of MapSource.  However, since MapSource does some significant caching of map tiles for display on the computer, it's likely that you are simply not seeing the changes on the computer screen.  If you delete the MapSource cache, you can be sure that you are seeing the latest data.

Even if that doesn't work, the issue is only with display of the map in MapSource; if you select any portion of Washington and upload, you will get all of the Washington data on your GPS.

I appear to have tracked down what is causing the problem and will have a new release of Northwest Trails out next week (1.58) that will contain the necessary changes.

So should I stay with map source 6.16 and wait for the new NWT 1.58 next week. Or is there a issue with using the new map source?

The issue isn't with MapSource, but with the fact that it is now stricter with what you can do with preview maps.  You could downgrade if you absolutely need to see Northwest Trails on your computer right now, but otherwise I'd say stick with 6.16.1 until Northwest Trails is updated.
