    i am using edge 800
    I name the maps instead of gmapsupp.img
    eg:
    gmapsuppThailand.img
    gmappsuppIndonesia.img
    gmapp suppMalSing.img

    All the files placed in the garmin folder of micro sd card.
    The device can read all these maps without having to join the maps using gmap tool.
    Wonder if it's a new feature in newer garmin devices.
    IOh, btw, it has a basemap already preinstalled.
    Perhaps this helps?

    I have an etrex Vista HCx. I have downloaded Garmin Pacific Bluechart v10.5 2008.5 and Garmin Aus Topo v3. I would like to combine the charts of the East coast of Australia with as much of Eastern Australia topo as can fit (most importantly Queensland remaining states not so important) onto a 4Gb Micro SD card.
    Is there a way to combine the charts and topo maps onto one SD card that will work in the etrex. If so can someone refer me to a tutorial (I've looked but can't seem to find one) or explain the process please. I have loaded the topo maps into Mapsource so that I can view which maps I need, but I can't load the charts to see which of them I need.

    greetings folks,

    I just bought a nuvi 2465 which came preloaded with multiple maps of Malaysia and Singapore and I also just bought a microSD card.

    Some questions tho:

    1. is it recommended to transfer anything to the microSD card? should I backup anything first?

    2. what files to transfer?

    3. how to transfer the files? I also have a card reader handy if that's needed

    Many thanks!

    1). It is better to put anything you don't cleary know into sd card. (when you get problem so just take it off then the problem is solved.)
    3). When you connect 2465 with USB then computer will see Nuvi & sd card. just try

    aekhong,

    thanks for your reply. I'm greener than newbie for I practically don't know anything about garmin file system and hate to turn the unit into brick.

    i've formatted the SD card for FAT32 and could see it on connection to my pc.

    question:

    would garmin behave like any other pc; ie can i simply copy/cut and paste the files and create directories?

    I tried to follow the tutorials/instructions and like to share the outcome of my experiments:
    Device; Zumo 660 - firmware 4.30
    microSD card SanDisk 16Gb class4, formatted FAT32
    BaseCamp 3.2.2. on PC.
    4 Map-Images: CityNavigator, 3x OnRoute (Walking/Bike/MotorBike), all unlocked.


    The tutorial on displaying all Images in BaseCamp - succesful for each one as IMG (on SD \Garmin) with is't own name.
    No difference for the location on microSD; either \Map\, or \Garmin\, or \Garmin\Map\
    However in this way the maps don't show on the ZUMO (Settings/Map/Map Info).
    They do show up, both in BaseCamp and the Device (each in turn) if the IMG file is renamed to "Gmapsupp.img" and placed in \Garmin\ on microSD.

    No luck with naming a second map as Gmapsup2.img and placing it on SD in \Garmin, as suggested for other devices (Nuvi).
    The other suggestion for a second map succeeded; naming it as "Gmapsupp.img" and placing this second "gmapsupp.img" directly on the device in \Garmin.
    In this way both maps are visible in BaseCamp and in "Map Info" on the device both can be checked or unchecked.

    Next I followed the tutorial for joining maps with GmapTool; the 4 Imagefiles together stayed beneath the 4Gb threshold (FAT32 file-limit).
    The outputfile I named "Gmapsupp.img" and copied it to microSD in \Garmin\.
    The result: 4 separate maps on the device, each of which can be checked/unchecked in "Map Info"
    However in BaseCamp only 1 map seem to appear on SD; just CityNavigator. At closer look it's clear that the cartographic detail of this map is much greater than the original.
    So the details for walking and biking are incorporated in the CityNavigator map in BaseCamp.

    With these 4 maps on my device I can use it for different situations, either for walking, biking or for touring on the motorbike.

    Thanks for all the useful tutorials/information.

    Greetings, John.

    Anyone know if you can combine 3d files on the Zumo? I have a Zumo 660 with CN Europe (on device) and CN USA (on SD card) and it will not show the 3D USA map as an option. Tried the following:

    gmap3d.img on SD card - does not work
    gmap3d1.img on SD card - does not work
    gmap3d1.img on device - does not work

    Seems like the Zumo only like 1 3D file at a time. Sure wish they had the same naming ability as my Oregon (especially as they are the same company) - as long as it ends in .img, all is good (just not on the Zumo)
