I assume it is this map? https://www.gpsfiledepot.com/maps/view/446/

Have never used it, and the author indicates it's a transparent overlay. Install another map (perhaps this? https://www.gpsfiledepot.com/maps/view/127/) on your GPS, then enable it AND the trail map at the same time. The trails should be added to the other map.

This feature only works on the GPS itself, and not in Basecamp on your computer. Basecamp can only display one map at a time, but the GPS can display multiple maps as "layers".
