I recently updated my Garmin echomap 74dv. Now I can't get my Florida topo maps back.. I'm not real good with electronics anyway.

I use the Garmin Homeport program for my maps

Thanks for your help.

Boyd:
What maps did you have? Did you get them from GPSFileDepot? How did you install them before? Were they installed on a memory card?

billy56:
I have the maps that I bought from somewhere. The file name is "123-9888-fltopo_gmap_install"

I don't remember how I installed them. I have used homeport for marking waypoints etc.

I'm sorry if that doesn't help

Boyd:
Apparently you are using a Macintosh (it would really help if you could provide more info). That is this map

It should still be installed on your computer, unless you intentionally deleted it. Sorry, no familiarity at all with the echomap. Are you sure the map isn't there anymore? It may just be disabled. Look for a menu with a name like "map setup" and see what maps are listed.

Have not used Homeport. But if the map is really no longer on the GPS, then you can probably send it again using MapInstall. See this tutorial, however I believe it is old and there have been some changes to MapInstall.

I am using a PC. If I know what kind of information you needed I may be able to tell you.

I have the map you referenced on my computer but don't know how to get it to my gps.

I can see the map in Homeport but for some reason I can't transfer it to my Echomap 74dv

I don't think that I can use Mapinstall because I do NOT have a hard connection to my gps I have to transfer maps by a memory card.
