I did exactly that! but when I downloaded the next map the two maps showed up in the same file named gmapsupp.img I had changed it to aztopo.img. One time I even shut down the computer and rebooted. aztopo.img was there in the garmin folder. I then downloaded the next map and no aztopo.img file in the garmin folder just a gmapsupp.img file with both maps in it. I don't understand why it didn't work the way you recommended. chip

This adds weight to a friend of mine's habit of referring to computers as "confusers".

The Golden Rule with computers is "Garbage In, Garbage Out".

I am still waiting for Chip to post the version of BaseCamp and MapInstall being used.

Same here. The latest version of those apps work reasonably well. For me, anyway.

I for one think that's an improvement.

I agree. You don't always need to see every street name, but I do wish I could at least see the cross street names.

This was one of the things that bugged me when I moved from a GPSMap 60C to a 2720.

MapInstall and MapManager should both be 4.0.2

That is interesting. I down loaded it last Thursday from the Garmin web site.

http://www8.garmin.com/support/downl...ls.jsp?id=3825

It is one download for both Mapinstall and MapManager. It lists 4.0.2 as the version. It is insuated that both are the same. But I got Mapinstall 4.0.2 and MapManager 3.0.1. Would you mind doubble checking your MapManager. If you use it. chip

I will, but I first have to dig my Mac out of the box it is hiding in ;) Perhaps another Mac user here can confirm which version MapManager actually gets installed with MapInstall 4.0.2.

On my iMac running 10.8.3 and the latest BaseCamp Beta 4.2.0.4 installed on 7 May 2013:

Map Install: 4.0.2

Map Manager: 3.0.1

both installed back on 10 August 2012

Thank You.

At this point, with the information available, I can only conclude that Chip is missing something in his workflow that is nearly impossible to detect without looking over his shoulder
