Basecamp only comes with a basic global map.
Until you decide which maps you need or want, you can download a map set from OSM
. If you download the *.exe file you can install the map set to the computer. Then use MapInstall to transfer the map to the GPS.
If you download the zipped *img file you can install the maps directly onto the gps's SD card. When the gps is connected to your pc via the usb cable, BC upon start-up, will read and load the map. BC can read maps that are either installed on the gps and/or the computer.
