View a topo map in another state?
« on: August 24, 2019, 04:58:15 AM »
Good morning. Using a new Etrex 30 .I live in Ohio and I'm going hiking in Colorado in a couple weeks. I downloaded & enabled a map called cotopo2011 from this sight. When I scroll to a point in Colorado I don't see any topo lines at all. Only very little roads. Any help? Can anyone recommend a better map I should be looking at?

How did you install the map on the GPS? If you used the current version of Basecamp/MapInstall, that is likely to be the the problem. The Windows version of this software doesn't work properly with most maps on this site. See this thread: https://forums.gpsfiledepot.com/index.php?topic=4539.0

A variety of other things might also cause it, but this is the most likely cause and it's been a problem for just about everyone who uses the maps from GPSFileDepot.
