Question about GPS

Open Question

I have a new Garmin Oregon 400t GPS. It is downloaded with US Topo Maps. I bought the Canada Topo maps and I also bought and installed a 2 gig micro chip. I have loaded the Canada info on my computer and hooked the GPS up and can't seem to down load from the computer to the GPS. I have checked out the drivers on my computer and all is OK. What can I do to download the Canada maps to my Oregon? Thanks, Louis Solari (207-650-5365)

i dont think you can upload maps to an i3, it can only load pre-loaded maps on micro-sd cards.

Make sure you have your base map enabled. Go to Setup | Map | Map Information | Select your base map and enable it.

Could not unlock maps


Hello,

If you are having troubles accessing the pre loaded mapping then you may need a firmware update, if these are maps that you have installed make sure they are compatible authorized maps.
If you try this and all fails contact Garmin customer support.


Hope this helps!

Have a Garmin Oregon 400t. It does not want to recognise maps stored on the SD card. If I connect the Garmin to computer, I can read the files on the SD card but when I look to select the maps, they are...


Memory Maps are for PDA's only, not for Garmin GPS units. If you purchased these from Memory Map, contact the company and request a refund due to hardware incompatibility. Maps for the Oregon are from Garmin (purchase) or Ibycus (free).

Garmiin nuvi gps,


The device uses SD cards actually. They will not however work with TOPO maps or Bluechart. They are primarily for loading media or city street maps for other country's.

Geocaching with Garmin Etrex Legend CX


The preloaded maps are VERY generic, mostly major highways. They are not useful for geocaching.

The good news is that you can download free topo maps created by a very generous Canadian soul, Dale Atkin. The maps are free but donations are accepted. He is also working on US topo maps. I've used Ibycus and Garmin topo maps and prefer the Ibycus version.
If this solves your situation, please come back and rate our answer. Thankyou.

GPS position is offset from map location


This could be because your datum and your posistion format. Under your menu go to setup, then units and make sure you have the correct info set in there for your area. NAD27 Canada would be the one you are looking for. Give that a try and see if it works. If it is still off, consult the manuals that came with your topo and see if it says what datum it uses.

I have a garmin oregon 400t and I cant see the elevation lines, or topographical lines


You may be in an area where there is not enough topography for the topo lines to show up. Pan tothe Smokey Mountains and see if they show up.
