If it takes a single gmapsupp.img you can add multiple maps to that file.

There is a difference between multiple maps and multiple map files. Garmin map files are actually "containers" that can hold more than one map. Just use the tutorial here and note steps 7 and 8 if you want to install more than one map on an older device like the 530: http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/tutorials/how-to-load-maps-on-my-garmin-gps-unit/#pcbasecamp

I have multiple maps in one file installed currently. I've never been able to get the transparent maps to work. Hence the question.
Thanks!

There was an error in some of jbensman's transparent maps (such as MyTrails) that caused problems for some people before. I think he has fixed this now, but if you are using his maps then it might be related. IIRC, Mapsource worked correctly to install the map but Basecamp/MapInstall had issues.

If you are using Basecamp/MapInstall then try Mapsource and see if it makes a difference.
