"Can't Unlock Maps"

I get a "can't unlock maps" message after loading a Bluechart map onto my eTrex Legend C. The map loads fine and I can view it on my computer, just not in the Garmin unit ... any ideas?

I do have the 25 digit code.

Can't view downloaded sections from Garmin Topo


In Map Setup page, scroll over to blue 'ball' icon (second from right), press lower left button on side of GPS unit, use Thumb switch to scroll down to "Show None", click Thumb switch in. All maps will disappear. Press lower left button on side of GPS unit again, scroll down to "Show Topo.....", click Thumb switch in. Your Topo maps should now show onscreen.

The reason your Topo map might not have shown is because, if you leave the Navigator map showing, and then just press "Show Topo", the layer showing Topo will still be under the Navigator map. This is why I always tell it to show none, and then load whatever map I need to see onto a bare screen.

I can't put maps on my Garmin etrex legend HCx


Your MicroSD card may be full just from the basic maps. Try larger card for additional maps. The vendors supply the minimum to keep the cost low and then force the customer to upgrade the resources at their own expense.

HOW DO YOU LOAD MAPS TO THE GPS UNIT?


You will need to load the MapSource software on your PC then load the maps into MapSource. After the maps are loaded and unlocked you can plug your GPS into your PC with the USB cable and load the maps.

Hope this Helps.

No, Garmin maps will not work on a Magellan Triton.

Yes, you can install Bluechart and CityNavigator onto one SD card. Inside Mapsource, select the Bluechart maps you want, then switch to CityNavigator and select the maps you want from then, and then send all at once to the GPS unit. If you send Bluechart maps, and then CityNavigator, the CityNavigator will overwrite the Bluecharts. This is why it must be done all in one step.

Cant view map on gps


When you go past 4gigs on a micro SD card it becomes HC (high capacity I believe) and will not work with most Garmins. The 2 gig's the limit.

Map down load


You can view segments of the maps at the Garmin site and it will show you how much detail there is.
Go to http://www8.garmin.com/cartography/mapSource/topous.jsp#
and on the far right side of the page, you'll see a link to Mapsource Map Viewer Topo USA 2008. Click on that and zoom in to your area.
Yes, you can download the map segments to your unit.
