After cogitating on it for a few hours I came to the conclusion that the problem was the way Garmin's Mapinstaller interfaces with the SD card. Here is how I handled it. 1) use Mapinstaller to put the 1st map on the SD card. 2) opened
the SD card go into the Garmin folder and take the file
gmapsupp.img and drage to the desk top which puts a copy on the desk top then delete the file from the SD card. 3) Down load the 2ed map the same way.
when I drug it to the desk top a window popped up saying that I already had a file of that name and what did I want to do with the file. I chose to keep both. The lion named the second file gmapsupp2.img when it copied it to the desk top.
4) I then delegated the 2ed file from the SD card. 5) I then closed Mapinstall
6) I then drug the two files into the Garmin folder in the SD card 7) I then put the SD card into the 650t. The maps were now in two different files that can be enabled or disabled at will. chip
Far more complicated than necessary. All you need to do is rename gmapsupp.img to map1.img or topo west.img or whatever, then send the second map, repeat the renaming, and do it as often as necessary.

No need to move the file back to your computer unless you want to back it up, which is not a bad idea. But renaming the file is easily done while it's on the uSD card.

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.

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
