I'm hoping someone can answer what I'm sure is a very simple query, but which I'm struggling to find an answer to as I'm completely new to the GPS game.



Just bought a Garmin Vista & Anquet's OS based Great Britain South at 1:50000.



I can create waypoints, paths & routes on my PC & successfully transfer them to the GPS, but to date have been unable to highlight an area of the actual map itself & download that.



I had visions of being able to navigate using the Anquet maps on the GPS screen, ie as if I were looking down at an OS map.



I am doing something daft or missing something obvious here ?



Any help much appreciated!

Robin

You won't be able to download an Anquet map to the Garmin. Garmin's only accept Garmin MapSource maps. Like Magellan's only support Magellan MapSend maps.



You can link your Garmin to your PC and use this on the PC providing there is GPS support in Anquet, or you could do the same with a Pocket PC linking it to your Garmin, but there's no way of getting any other maps installed on the Garmin.

Robin.



Anquet Maps is designed for managing the waypoints, routes and tracks. It does not allow the download of maps to the Garmin. It does allow you to print the current map to a printer, and then use this in conjunction with the GPS.



If you want real-time topographical GPS displays in the UK your only commercial option currently is with Fugawi or Memory-Map on a PDA.
