    I get this message when I access the Garmin website with the link: We were unable to locate any downloads for the product you requested.
    Is anyone getting the same message?

    Apparently the Windows version has a bug and will not let you transfer maps to your GPS.

    From the Garmin Forums:

    "Watch Out - maps in .img format cannot be sent with the MapInstall belonging to 4.7.0 anymore. Maps in .gmap format send fine. Please report if you find any .img map that sends correctly (not only a cutout of the overview map) or any gmap map that is not send anymore."

    Hi Paul,

    Big discussion on the T4A forum about problems with the new Basecamp on Windows (seems to be OK for Mac). You can download an older version of Basecamp for Windows here: http://www.gawisp.com/perry/mapsource/

    The new version of Basecamp also does not allow for viewing anything on Google Earth.

    That already happened on the previous version. Now the only way is to export your relevant data to a KML/KMZ file and then open it in Google Earth.
