Garmin mapset question?

Recommended Posts

Okay I am new to a lot, but I use GPS a lot in the army and have never worked with mapsets, they have always been pre programed on my unit.

 

I have a Garmin Etrex Legend Cx 1G MicroSD, Map source, City navigator, and Topo, plus a few more. I was playing around with topo and lost all my maps from navigator. Am I to understand you can only have one mapset at a time? So If I use map install and choose all the maps I want at the same time, it will build the mapset then install and over write the old mapset?

Garmin does overwrite each mapset with a new one each time you load maps, but I think you can rename gmapsupp.img to gmapprom.img and then load the new mapset.
