Maps on a Montana

I also just purchased a Montana 650. I got the "Bundle" from GPS City which comes with "City Navigator N America" DVD. I've ordered the Topo Maps DVD for N & S Dakota because I'm scheduled to ride the Dakal in June!! I've not loaded any maps yet!! I can probably figure out what I need to do, , , :) , , , but if you can save me some "Learning Curve" time I'd appreciate it!!

To me it's logical that the National Forest roads (from the Dakal GPX files) we'll likely be on would be better shown on the Topo maps rather than the City Navigator!! I think I've seen where I can load regions from the DVD's to save space!! I've also ordered a couple 4 gig Micro SD cards!!

The Dakal GPX file is already loaded in the internal memory!!

I'm only going to use this GPS for adventure riding!!

1. Should I load only the area of the Topo maps that include the area of the Dakal??

2. Should I load this information on a SD card??

3. Am I completely missing something?? :)

Any tips would be appreciated!!

Thanks,

Alfred,
Dahlonega, GA.
