  • Cant install maps onto Etrex 30x?

    I read that Garmin has blocked users from installing 3rd party maps into gps units using basecamp since last May. Is this true? If it is, is there a way to work around this without installing previous versions of Basecamp? If not, my device would be pretty useless for what I want to use it for and my support for garmin is going to drop.

    If you want to use BaseCamp to install maps then you'll need to revert to 4.6.2

    However pretty much all 3rd party maps are available in .img format, so you just copy the file to your Etrex, BaseCamp isn't needed.
