    @Rikki V
    Either MS or BC can load an image file of all or part of a map from a gmap folder. Please search for this kind of basic info rather than posting a request. It's rather easy to find.

    Actually BaseCamp can't load maps to device. It calls external program MapInstall. You can ran MapInstall directly, in version 4 it has some advantages over Mapsource, for example it supports multiple names for img.
    Thanks, Kanopus

    True, technically, BC invokes MapInstall to install maps. It does happen automatically and seamlessly when you have the programs installed correctly so from a practical point of view to a new user, BC installs the image (using MI). Didn't really want to turn what was a essentially a basic question into a mini-tut though, but thanks for setting the record straight Kanopus.
