    help can I use a mapsource ver map with my Montana 600?

    Hello Great People,

    Can I use a mapsource version map with Montana?

    If yes should I upload it to unit with Basecamp or just save under Garmin directory in the unit ?

    Thank you so much

    Info is here about how to use a mapsource version [i.e. gmap folder]: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Scroll down to 'Have you downloaded a Mapsource Gmap folder ?'.

    In brief, you cannot simply use an unconverted mapsource version directly in any Garmin unit or on a media card, you must use BaseCamp/MapInstall to make a map .img file. Have a good read of that linked thread and others here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Post in appropriate thread if you need more help after doing thorough reading of them.
    Everything basic can be found by searching rather than opening new threads.
