Did you download the maps via your PC into Mapsource and then transfer them to the Venture? You have to unlock the maps on your PC with the code which is specific to your unit.

Have just received my garmin gb topo dvd and the 8 letter code would not work. used a 25 digit code and it said i had unlocked it ok but my garmin etrex keeps saying cant unlock maps? any ideas?


I have had this problem before. You have to make sure you have the proper map data selected in Mapsource before you start selecting data to download to the GPS. I had multiple maps loaded into Mapsource but they weren't all unlocked for the multiple GPSs that I own. if I got the licenses mixed up between the units it wouldn't work. There should be a setting in your option menus.

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.

WE HAVE PURCHASED A ETREX GARMIN BLUE IN COLOR AND ARE WANTING TO KNOW HOW TO GET DOWN LOADS FOR MARINE WITH OUT PAYING FOR THE CD OR DOWNLOAD


You need Garmin MapSource (Trip and Waypoint Manager) and a data cable. Then for free maps visit the murky internet sites and beware of what you download. I would not bother with a topo or marine maps on a grey screen GPS anyway as the colour maps will not be easily understood on a grey screen.

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.

How are you installing?

You need to have Mapsource running, select the Topo USA 2008 maps to show on your screen. Use the Map Select tool, and select all the maps you want to send to the unit. Then hit the Send to GPS at the top and a pop up window asks what you want to send. Select Maps.

If this is what you have done already, please come back and tell us and we'll trouble shoot from there.

There is a serial number associated with your maps and your GPS unit. You will be able to get this serial number from Garmin when you register your software. Mapsource comes with the maps on the same disc. If it is not installed on your computer, it will automatically install.

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.
