  • Non-broken version of Basecamp > 4.7.0?

    Why don't Garmin release a version of Basecamp that actually works and has a version number > 4.7.0. At the moment, every time I use 4.6.2, BC wants to update itself to 4.7.0, which doesn't work correctly with IMG files.

    Have you tried the steps here https://forums.garmin.com/forum/mac-...basecamp-4-6-2
    Currently own Drive 50LMT-D, Nuvi 2508LMT-D, Nuvi 1490LMT, Nuvi 1310, Montana 650T, Etrex 20, and use Basecamp, OSM mapping
    Previously owned Etrex Legend H, Mio Navman and used Mapsource

      Actually (thanks to velomap.org), I've found that the following solution works:

      1. Install BC 4.7.0

      2. Delete the contents of C:\Program Files (x86)\Garmin\MapInstall (but leave the subdirectories there)

      3. Download MapInstall 4.0.4 from https://www8.garmin.com/software/MapInstall_404.exe and install it.

      This restore correct functioning of BC with copying of IMG map files to Garmin devices. I don't know if 4.7.0 breaks anything else that works in 4.6.2, but the procedure above restores the functionality that I use.
