    Hello,
    I switch off the basemap in the dakota20 because I reed that you can use only one map.
    The basemap is original in the device.

    You can use multiple maps but results are not always as one would expect. This doesn't concern basemap, which is visible only in low scale. Without basemap your Dakota will redraw map very slowly when set to low scale.
    Thanks, Kanopus

    Basemap has nothing to do with your topo activation. Just switch it on for better working of your Dakota.
    Thanks, Kanopus

    How did you rename that topo map? Do you have other maps in your device internal memory?

    The Topo map is the only one installed on the device. The problem is solved because I got an activation code from another friend to activate de map in mapsouce and the map is now visible in the device. Many thanks for the reactions.
    Regards

    Pierre
