    I down loaded a track to Base camp and I can see the whole loop while in Base camp.
    Plug my Montana in and transfer track
    click show on map and it only shows 2/3rd's of the loop, the final 3rd is not on the device ?
    Weird, I don't get that I see it in B.C. but not all of it on the Montana

    I have occasionally had something like this happen, although an entire track that I thought I sent would be missing. This is what I would do.
    Hook the Montana back up to the computer and Basecamp.
    Then just for curiosity look at the track(s) on the Montana using Basecamp (not the ones you sent to the unit from your database).

    I would resend the track to the Montana.

    *** Then make sure you do a full eject on both Internal Storage and the SD card.

    If this does not work, I would try doing a Master Reset on the Montana and again resend the track.

    You might also want to check the number of points in the track. I think the Montana can handle at least 10000 points/track. But you could try filtering the number of points down to something less than that and retrying.
