Garmin Map62ST: Assistance Needed for MX

Hello. I am writing for a friend who is traveling NA from Australia and is about to enter Mexico. He purchased a Garmin Map62ST and was informed it should be preloaded with topo world base maps. He is unable to load the Mexican maps. Since Garmin technical support is not available during weekends, I am hoping someone on the forum may be able to assist my friend, while he is on the road. I've browsed the Garmin forum and suggested to my friend he may have a limited memory issue or needs another SD card. I am waiting for his response. Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide. David

Your diagnosis sounds about right. If he has access to a computer, he should load his supplementary maps to a 8 or 16 gig micro sd card.

Emmbeedee: Hello and thank you for your reply. I have not heard from my friend since Friday. Therefore, I assume he resolved the the issue or is traveling in MX with a paper map only. He's heading to Copper Canyon. Thanks again. David

LifeRemotely has a good write up on using a Garmin gps and third party maps in the Americas.
