    it says the US maps are 1466mb My gps will hold 1839mb. Is that enough room to have left over? I am re downloading it to the GPS right now so i can look on Basecamp at smaller roads. Going to leave it on the chip right now and see if it will work.

    You don't really need to load the whole mapset. Do you really think you'll be doing a lot of riding in South Dakota, or Wyoming, or New York, or Massachusetts? :lol3

    I did not see a place on there to pick what States you want to download. To me it looks like all or nothing.

    You use Mapinstall and then pick the blocks you want to send to the unit.

    Ahhh OK, I forgot, you don't have it on your computer. You should be able to Dl the complete map to your computer, not sure why you aren't getting the prompt to chose. Once you have it on there, you can send the map sections you need to the unit.

    Go down to the installing map updates section then look at step 9

    as many of you know, I am limited to downloads, so when it comes to the maps, I ALWAYS order the dvds for the $10 they ask..that way, I always have the disk and I dont use up my FAP nor risk a corrupt or partial download..hey stuck, oder the dvd's..you'll be glad you did

    What scale are you at? Sometime you've gotta zoom in to see the smaller roads.

    When you scale in your installed maps should show detail and 1 mile and in. If you go outside of one mile you will loose detail. When you build a map you will want the map scale set at 1 mile so you can see the roads. If you are at a mile or below and you just see main roads then your CNNA map is not installed.

    Yes, I could feel the adrenaline coursing through my veins, it was all happening so fast, like a blur, then everything went white.
