How to add maps to Oregon?

Ive tried basecamp and installed maps from openstreetmaps. Sent the data over to the Oregon, but i dont get any option to use the layer on the GPS.

What am i doing wrong?

I'm fairly sure you are not going to be able to do what you want. All of Garmin's handhelds have a limit to the number of map segments that can be accessed.

These are the individual "tiles" that make up the whole map. I am not certain about the Oregon 600, but other recent models can only access 4000 segments. This is the total of all maps installed on the device, regardless of whether you have enabled them.

A work around would be to work around the problem by putting some of the maps on a different sd card, and swap them when necessary. If you know they are on the unit and can't access then you have probably exceeded the number of map segments for the unit. The 450 will accept about 4,000 segments I believe.

Try this..

I have 3 set loaded on my 650. Can not activate multiple maps as a semitransparent layer over another map. I can easy switch map sets.

The eTrex had major limitations on map sets. I have not see this issue on the 650.

Good luck
