    I have this file on my copy of basecamp:
    "/Applications/Garmin BaseCamp.app/Contents/Resources/Global Application Basemap v2.gmap"

    Is there any reason to keep this? I've dumped it from my Garmin 660LM, but still have it on my Macbook; I can reveal it via Finder but would love to dump it if not necessary since I am using Europe 2018 latest update.

    Ideas? Experience?

    Thanks, z

    Backup the file first, delete it and see how Basecamp works. If there is a problem you can always restore the map or re-install BC.

    I haven't tried it yet, but my guess is as long as you do have a map installed you should be ok.
