    Up at the top on the menu bar, click FIND, then select Points of Interest, then select Cities.

    So i pluged in the GPS and brought up basecamp. it said it could not get maps off my gps. when i look at basecamp it only has the main roads on it now. any ideas?

    The only thing different is i re downloaded my maps to the card i put in the gps and not to the gps

    That's the problem, Basecamp will only read maps on the GPS memory, not the card. Not sure why that's happening, it should be able to read whats on the card. Should probably open up a trouble report with Garmin on that.

    Garmin etrex 30.

    You guys thing downloading it to the sim card is messing it up for me? The guy at Garmin said it would run better if the maps were downloaded to the card and not to the GPS itself. Just cant get the smaller roads to show up on Basecamp.

    Albie if it's a legacy product (more than five years old) Base Camp won't necessarily see it.

    thanks Albie. I was going to send the card back but he said to use it. my Maps still come up on the GPS just not the base camp. When opening up a trouble report do i do it all online or call them?

    thanks

    I'd do it online, calling can be a real PITA. I'm gonna do it also, figure the more people that complain maybe the sooner they get it fixed.

    That's because only the base map is showing. Try going to map products in the heading line and open it up and see if your new maps are there.

    You need to log into the My Garmin page and then click on the My Support tab. Since you use your own log in and password I obviously can't link it for you.

    It won't access ANY of the maps including the latest CN or Topo maps when I have them installed on the card. If I install them directly to the GPS memory then it allows me access to them.

    Also, you can actually SEE those maps on the card in the My Garmin Devices column, but you can't find them under the pull down menu for Currently Displayed Maps.
