Map Problems

I'm finally out to solicit some advice. I have a GPSMAP 60CSx, and I want to put maps on it from a couple different Garmin programs.

 

I want to have TOPO maps of my area, which I can upload from TOPO East.

I also want to have European maps on it from Metroguide Europe v9

 

The only problem is that when I select the maps all at once, the TOPO maps get left out. I just can't seem to get them to show up. The european maps show up fine, but thats about it.

 

Do I have to upload the maps from one program, and then go back and upload them from the other, or can I just select them all at once? It's kind of frustrating, but I need to have them all on my GPS for next week when I go on vacation in Europe.

 

Thanks for the advice,

Robert

What do you mean exactly by the above statements?

 

You definitely have to select them all at once and upload them to your GPS. I can't image that there are any overlap issues since one is US and one is Europe but you might try hiding/showing mapsets as described here:

Hope that helps,

Turns out there was some overlap. Apparently I had metroguide north America on there too. I disabled that and my topo maps just showed up.

 

Wish I would have know that earlier though when I was snowshoeing. I was 2 miles into the woods and came down with the flu. I had to hike the 2 miles back out in the power. Now that I have my maps back, I saw that at one point I was 65 feet from a service road that is plowed.

 

If THAT doesn't make me feel like a loser I don't know what will ;-)

 

Thanks!

Robert
