BaseCamp fails to recognize certain MapSource maps
« on: February 03, 2014, 05:32:13 PM »
The Garmin support website (.../download_details.jsp?id=4435), says "BaseCamp will recognize all MapSource products except BlueChart." Both MapSource and BaseCamp have been successfully installed on my Windows computer.  However, BaseCamp does NOT recognize my Garmin MapSource - United States Topo (comparable to 1:100K USGS paper maps). I purchased version 3.02 of MapSource, though I've updated the s/w to version 6.16.3. I have other MapSource maps that ARE recognized by the BaseCamp s/w. Can you help me?

Basecamp should show the same maps as Mapsource, including your old topo map. Tell us about your computer. Is this a new system? Did you move the maps onto it from an old computer? A good start to the troubleshooting process would be to install and run GMTK: http://www.javawa.nl/gmtk_en.html

It will check all your maps when it starts and will report any problems. It can automatically fix many issues. If it doesn't help, respond here with any errors that it reports.
