Help using my Oregon 550!


Recommended Posts



this has helped alot with the problems i was having with my oregon 550. But I am still not sure what to do after you download a map from the gpsfiledepot. How do you get it onto the gps? Thanks!!


There's some good tutorials on the website. In short, if the map came as a single .img file, you just put it into your \Garmin\ directory (on the GPS) and you're done. If the map came with an installer, you're gonna have to get BaseCamp (free download from Garmin) and use the included MapInstall tool to put the map on the Garmin.
