etrex 20 does not show gpsfiledepot maps
« on: June 01, 2014, 05:50:29 PM »
I downloaded the gpsfiledepot maps to basecamp and then transferred them to the sd card under the garmin file.  I then went into maps on my garmin etrex 20 and enabled the Arizona topo but does not appear on the etrex screen.  Any helpful suggestions as to resolution of the problem?

Are you sure you are located within the boundaries of that map? Have you disabled all other maps on the device such that the Arizona map is the only one enabled? Did you try zooming way in (to .2 miles, for example)? Also go into the map settings and be sure that detail is set to the highest level.

It is also possible that you did not send the entire map to the gps, but only a small portion of it. Look inside the Garmin folder while the GPS is connected to your computer. How large is the map file?
