Help Needed with topo map on Garmin GPSmap 64s
« on: July 30, 2018, 04:48:17 PM »
Hello!

I have used this site for awhile to dl maps with no issues.  Recently my Garmin 64s stopped showing the details on the topo map I use, the COTOPO2011 map. 

The map is present on the device and enabled.  I can see the map when zoomed out, but when I zoom in there are no topo lines.  It's essentially another basic map now.  I'm sure I changed a setting by accident, but I cannot figure out how to get it to show again. 

I'm using basecamp, and can see the details there. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I have a hike this weekend and would love to have this fixed. 

Thanks!

Boyd

Did you recently send the map to your GPS with MapInstall? This sounds like the same problem that everyone is having. The current version of Basecamp/MapInstall is broken and cannot send maps to the GPS. It appears to send OK, but on the GPS you have a map with no details. See this thread, there are others on the same topic too.

Glad I could help! Too bad Garmin won't fix their broken software.  >:(
