I was hoping that I culd access it w/out being plugged in but I couldn't find a way to make it work. I don't want to pay for a DVD now that I already own the maps. Damn.
I have always gone the DVD route, for that very reason.
My understanding (the information on the wiki is taken directly from Garmin) is that you must have the GPSr with the downloaded maps connected to your computer before BaseCamp can be used to view the maps on the device..
If you find any different, from Garmin or your own research, please advise me!
