Cannot download to Garmin Etrex 20

Recommended Posts

I have searched, read and tried to download caches to my new Garmin Etrex 20 and am not having any luck. Can someone give me a quick simple lowdown on how to do this or a link. Again I have searched and downloaded POI, basecamp for mac, GSAK and followed videos on youtube. Please tell me it is something simple before I go insane.

This is my default guide for downloading to a Garmin on a Mac. Should work the same for any Garmin, providing it has internal storage/SD card.

 

Here is a short guide to download a GPX file from a cache page to a Garmin Oregon (450) on a Mac. If doing a PQ, just download the PQ instead of the single cache and follow the same steps.

 

1.

Go to the cache page required, and click GPX File (highlighted. It should then download and is visible in the Downloads dialog box if using Safari.

2.

Go to Finder, select 'Today' from the left hand panel and find the GPX file. Select it, then press Cmd+C to copy it.

3.

Select your Garmin from the Desktop.

4.

Once the Garmin is open in finder, go Garmin -->GPX --> and then press Cmd+V to copy it.

Eject your Garmin by dragging it to the recycle bin, and now the GPX file should be on your GPS.
