Cant see loaded map on gps
« on: December 27, 2018, 01:16:06 PM »
I have successfully installed two maps onto my Etrex30x using basecamp. I have the option to enable/disable them but when I enable the map nothing new appears on the map. I am very new to the basecamp software but have a general understanding. What am I doing wrong here?

Sounds like the same problem that has been discussed in many other threads here. Garmin updated Basecamp/MapInstall last May, and it can no longer send third party maps to your GPS. I assumed this was just a bug, but 7 months have passed and they still have not fixed it. So it was either intentional or else Garmin just doesn't care.
