    @Garmin user:

    It's a bit of a catch-22 using the Dakota 10:
    - In order for the map to fit in the internal memory, the map can not have too much detail.
    - When having more detail, the map does not fit in the internal memory anymore.

    Maybe it's time to upgrade to a newer GPS device. Since you bought the Dakota 10, prices have come down significantly and many features have been added.

    Garmin user's not wanting to SEE the img in BC, he wants to load only part of the img to his Dakota 10. He now understands that isn't feasible because of my earlier reply.

    Yes, i was thinking to use part of map areas to fit on the unit. I was aware of the memory limit, when I bought it only a short time ago. I hoped to select map areas as I am used to with road maps on Nuvi unit.
    The Dakota 10 was sold new for 24 USD (200 Norwegian kroner) in my local shop. So it was impulse shopping and not a big loss.

    You could consider to put an OSM based topo on your Dakota 10, these maps are very good nowadays.
    The Freizeitkarte Norway is 715MB and will fit in your internal memory.

    You can download the img but there is also a gmap version with installer (for Basecamp).

    corresponding gmap installer:

    You can even change the typ file and choose a map-design that you like.
    My advise is to change the default typ for the one named 'contrast' for a Garmin Outdoor GPS.

    I will try freemap alternatives. It can't be more bad than the topo maps from 2008. The new Garmin maps has Norway in 10 topo map areas (before it was 20 areas), my area takes 1.2 Gb. When free maps is less than 1 Gb for whole Norway, there must be a very significant difference on detail.
    There is no reason to fill up with more answers on my messages. My case is closed, unless there is an mapinstall version out there for my area.
    The Garmin maps from 2010 could be an alternative, but hard to find.

    Garmin Topo Norway Premium (2010, 20 parts) here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    Only part 1 thru 13 are available. In case the link of the part you need is dead, send me a PM and I will re-upload.

    Hello.

    Have anyone of you tried to put several topo Norway premium v2 IMG-files on the GPS. I have an Oregon 450 and i could use several IMG-files of Topo premium v 1 to show on my GPS. ( f.eks Trondheim,Steinkjer, Stavanger and Oslo at the same time)
    With topo premium Norway v2 only one IMG ( or area like Trøndelag or Nordland) is visible when you go to setup and choose map. Anyone have a solution?

    It's working for me with several Norway V2 maps in my GPS, an Astro 320 btw. Just to clarify, did you rename the IMG files with different names?

    Sounds like "normal system behaviour". I have an Oregon 450 and put 5 regions on one microSD. The screen shot below shows the result. All regions are shown, but you can not enable or disable them individually, only ALL at the same time.

    I bet that, when you have a look at the map on your Oregon and zoom in at each loaded area, you'll see details.
