    help help needed garmin 76csx maps

    hi folks . i have a garmin 76csx and wanted to put the v4 2012 maps on it . i thought i would take the easy way out and purchase them on a micro card on ebay . just plug in and they will be working he says . hasnt quite worked that way . let me tell you whats happening and hopefully you can help me . with the 4gb card inserted i power up unit . as it comes on it says recreational routing highway base map pacific v2 .200 . The loading bar gets to 43% and the acquiring sat page appears . get sat signals no problem . i go to main menu set up menu go to maps . here i get a list of the maps available. the only map on the list is int marine point base map jan 2001. none of the maps ie v4 are listed . do i need to remove this int marine point map that was probably installed from new or just use the option to hide it. i didnt want to have to use the computer and map source cd to move the v4 maps onto the gps as it looked a bit of a process . is there something i need to do to get my 76 csx to read the pre loaded card . is the file to big . when i go to card info on the gps it tells me its 76% full. so it knows its there but wont read it . i was looking forward to seeing the topo maps while flying as well as streets and forest tracks etc while flying cross country in my hang glider beats a black screen with the odd waypoint . look forward to receiving some advice cheers matthew
