    Anyone know how to import "Mad Maps" from my Garmin 660 into Base Camp? I purchased the East Coast 1,2, and 3 and downloaded and installed to the Garmin 660 but am not able to view them in Base Camp. I can see them in the Garmin 660 under the "extras" category but can not see them in Base Camp while the 660 is connected to the computer.
    Help is very appreciated.

    You have to make the route active on your GPS. Once it's active, you can then I can up load the active file from my GPS.

    You might find this post in the Montana thread applies to the 660 as well:

    The gist of it is that you can probably use JaVaWa Device Manager to enable the visibility of the maps in Basecamp.

    This way you won't actually be loading the maps into Basecamp, but they will be visible to Basecamp when the gps is connected to the computer via usb.
