    G'day ant16304,
    Like any other self-respecting Northern bird, Caty probably maybe still has her head tucked cozily under her wing right about now (it's around 7.30am in her part of the world and they ain't early risers in IT), so you're stuck with me Cobber.

    OK, i see you have a chartplotter, so i guess you actually want marine maps. Have a look here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Index is always the best place to start.

    Ant,
    Best start here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and also have a look at the tutorials generally: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    If you wish to keep your OEM pre-loaded maps presently on the unit, use an SD card and put your new map named gmapsupp.img in a root folder named Garmin. [x:/Garmin/gmapsupp.img]. If you need any more help, just post in an appropriate thread and you'll get specific assistance. Cheers.

    Thanks Caty, i should have moved it myself earlier but was unsure which chart Ant had downloaded.

    G'day Ant,
    We are were going quite OT in the Maps Request Thread, let's see if this post of mine doesn't help you:

    You said earlier 'I can see the map I want .... not entirely sure what to do next ....'. I assume you meant you'd seen the BlueChart you wanted in our Index and from the post above it seems you've downloaded it but you don't know how to 'open' [as in 'view'] it on you PC. I also assume that you have dl'ed [if not the one in this thread] some modern BC g2 or BC g2 Vision chart which is in .img format. You need the Garmin program HomePort, latest V2.2.1 available [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], but note the installation instruction note at the end of that post as i assume you don't have a prior version of HP on your PC. Then follow my instructions in Post #23 above to put your BC onto an SD, and HP will read it for viewing on your PC.

    I'm also thinking that maybe both you and your 'computer guy' are thinking that the chart .img file is a conventional image which needs to be mounted. It's not. It's a Garmin proprietary file format which is completely different.

    If you need further assistance using charts and maps with HP, please have a good look at the Help link in the program itself:
