I have some portions of Roads and Rec installed to my Montana's card. I installed it with Mapsource.

I still have Topo USA from the original CD version. I installed them on the laptop years ago, and Mapsource sees them and so does Basecamp. Partial installs of that with Mapinstall have also worked normally, so it can be done.

First, try installing a subset (to save time) of Topo West with Mapsource and see if the Montana can use it. (temporary workaround)

It seems that after a certain update of Basecamp it no longer saw old maps, but I did not have that problem. It's in here somewhere in the last 6 months, maybe try the search term "Topo USA disappeared" I would also look at the Basecamp forum on Garmin, it has a lot of good info, and a quote of the above, with the deletion of "bootlegged", will get a response. There is a known workaround, so don't give up. I'm pretty sure I saw some posts on this problem there as well.

I'm in the US for a bit and realized I don't have city navigotor on my newly "reconditioned" unit.

Does anyone know if I buy a microsd card version from REI or something like that will it work in the montana, 62s and 60CSx or do I have to pick just one? Obviously I can only use it in one unit at a time, but can I use it in various units? Thanks

HaHa, I see that now. Good fix with minimal tools. I think I might even be able to do that over here.

I'm not using the security screw (because it doesn't work) but it's no big issue. I do have my Montana secured to my motorcycle with a lanyard. If I go anywhere away from the bike I simply pop it off and stick it in a pocket or my lockable top case.

Thanks for the feedback.

And I specifically wanted a bolt much longer than the original, and with more threads on the end, so it secures the mount better and will be finger operated, with no need to faff around with extra key(tool).

I'm thinking while you're in the states you should pay your buddy Wayne a visit in San Diego

If you have those old maps installed on your Montana and want to see them in Basecamp, you can do so if the gps is connected, assuming you use JaVaWa to enable their visibility in BC.

When you buy the uSD version the lock applies to the card itself so it can be used in any compatible gps, but can't be copied to another card to use in a second gps. The biggest disadvantage to uSD is that they can't be upgraded, and Lifetime Map Updates don't apply to the card.

Those same disadvantages also apply to the download version.

Maybe someone could lend you the uSD for your visit or you could check how generous REI's return policy is?

Cheers,

Hey this was a bum steer as the link is wrong, i.e. I ordered what you have recommended and it is too small.

So DRTBYK what size do you use as Small is too small ?

My guess what works is the Nite Ize Backbone Case Size #20 Medium/Tall

http://www.amazon.com/Nite-Ize-Unive...f=pd_sbs_cps_5

http://www.niteize.com/product/Backb...se-Size-20.asp




I ordered the Small too from GPS City at the recommended link and haven't gotten it yet, and it was too cheap to bother returning, so I'll use it for something else.

Is there anything written or posted anywhere on the NET that can help with understanding workflow between BaseCamp and the Montana unit. Specifically organzing data in BaseCamp, transferring data between BaseCamp -> Montana and Montana -> BaseCamp. I am Trying to understand how BaseCamp operates so thought if there was some example WorkFlow's someone could post.

I am very familiar with MapSource but I understand I need to be using BaseCamp with my new Montana.
