Thanks, Seldom. The Arkansas Topo map had so much more with topographic lines, etc. I may look elsewhere for map sources now that I'm stuck with Windows 8.1. I just wanted the basic roads and USGS topo lines. I need something to lay down the tracks I record by hikings and backpacking.

You might try a combination of a planimetric map and a transparent topo, but you won't be able to view both maps simultaneously on BaseCamp.  A few planimetrics are listed on the Arkansas page.  You can also download the Arkansas section of garmin.openstreetmap.nl . That's routable and may have both roads and trails.  OpenStreetMap is also an excellent venue to upload and share your trail data.

apparently the 64 bit fix is working somewhat

Just to be clear, the only 64bit issue I know of is related to certain registry keys that were not being written when using an old version of the GPSFileDepot map installer that was included in a few maps here. If you had this problem, then the map you installed simply didn't appear in the dropdown menu in Basecamp. It did not affect the style in which a map is displayed.
