  • Maps in BaseCamp do not show to install on device

    I've installed the Africa North OSM Topo map, and it shows nicely in BaseCamp 4.6.2. But when I try to install the map on my Oregon 450 or Nuvi 3750, then it doesn't show. Any suggestions?

    How are you trying to do that? Note a common error is to send maps to an incorrectly formatted card, it must be FAT32.

      Either from the Maps->Install Maps menuitem or from Devices, right click "install maps on <device>". I do see my all other maps, I just don't see the
      Africa North OSM Topo map! The card is FAT32, and I can read and write to it.

        Where did you get the map from? It certainly should show there if it shows in BaseCamp.

          Found a work-around: if I copy my maps from the ..\BaseCamp\Maps folder to the ..\MapInstall\Maps folder, MapInstall will see them and I can install them. I wonder if I can tell MapInstall to look for maps in the
          ..\BaseCamp\Maps folder?

            Strange, I've never had to do that before but glad you've resolved your problem.
