    Folks, I have a litle problem.

    In the SD card I have three maps, Topo Spain V3, Topo Spain V5 Pro and the .img I have created.

    I can activate the .img and the V3, but not the .img and the V5 version. Any idea where is the problem??

    I know your post is over year old, but I don’t see any responses and I just started playing with the overlays myself... have you figured out the culprit? My overlays are stored in the internal memory (I have Zumo 595) - have u tried installing it in the GPS unit itself, rather than on said card?

    Topo Maps and Overlay selection?

    Has anyone with Zumo 590 or Zumo 595 tried to put an overlay over a Garmin’s (routable) 24k Topo Maps? I’m unable to select both of the maps. Topo resides on SD Card (which may or may not be an issue) and overlay map/track is on internal memory (I tried to put it on SD card but that didn’t help). I can select the City maps and overlay, but not topo

    GPS is up to date (N America 11.20... I think), Topo is SE USA, Overlay track created and moved using Javawa per instructions at the beginning of this thread.

    Looks like I ran into similar issue as Integralle... :baldy

    Anyone?
