Sending Maps to your GPS

You can easily send portions - or all - of Topo4GPS NZ mapping to most Garmin® handheld GPS units using BaseCamp™. If your GPS has a removable storage card, and you have access to a card reader, we suggest removing the card and connecting it via the card reader. The process of copying the map to the card is typically significantly faster than going via the GPS. 

 

Step

 

1

 

Connect your Garmin GPS to your Mac, and if prompted select 'Mass Storage' (if it has a removeable Micro-SD card, you can also remove that and connect the card to your PC using a card reader).

Step

 

2

 

Launch Garmin BaseCamp, or just launch Garmin MapInstall and skip to step 5.

Step

 

3

 

Click on the 'Send List to Device' button near the top/left of your screen

You can also send other information if you like at the same time (such as Routes, Tracks and Waypoints). The important one to have ticked here is "Send maps with MapInstall when done", then "Send".

You will be able to select how much of NZ you would like to send to your GPS or Memory Card.

 

Left-click with your mouse and drag it over the map of New Zealand to select an area to send. If you have the space, we recommend sending the entire map.

 

If you are tight on space, you can right-click and drag with your mouse to deselect an area.

 

When happy, click 'Send Maps'.
